This truck was just traded-in by the on a new truck and we've found that it cranks up and runs perfect hot or cold. It does that because we had a mechanic at the local Ford dealer install a FRESH SET OF INJECTORS as well as new standpipes and dummy plugs since he had it all apart anyway. While it was apart, e went ahead & had him put in an EGR cooler delete kit which resolves the main issue most people have with this engine. This truck as absolutely no 6.0 issues plus the 2006/7 models have lots of updates to the engine that earlier models did not possess.

2005 Ford F250 Road Test

FoMoCo's most profitable vehicle gets more beef, nd more chrome.November 2004You are what you drive. Bimmers, enzes, arleys, nd Hummers are "aspiration vehicles." Plenty of folks aspire to slip into those images.

While we weren't looking, uys in their peak-earning years-and even one dewy-fresh young woman of our acquaintance-took to wearing mighty mutha diesel pickups. "Heavy duty" is the categorical term for such iron. Work boots for the road. Mud spatter is your option, ut the factory builds 'em shiny, ven chromy.

Ford is the big shooter in this class, s it is with its F-150 in regular pickups. Upwards of 350,000 F-250 through F-550 trucks per year give it about 45 percent of the action, ith Chevy, odge, nd GMC biting and pulling fur over the other 55 percent. And they're gaining.

So for 2005 Ford is upgrading its heavy-duty line introduced for 1999. More power, ore load capacity, nd more towing muscle are the key attractants, ith a few other details worth mentioning, ike a nifty way of coordinating trailer brakes with the truck's anti-lock braking system.

The standard engine is a 5.4-liter, hree-valve-per-cylinder V-8, p 40 horsepower to 300. Power users may opt for the 6.8-liter, hree-valve gasoline V-10, t 355 horsepower, r the 6.0-liter Power Stroke turbo-diesel V-8 of 325 horsepower and- ta-dah!-570 pound-feet of torque at 2000 rpm. If the two-bedroom bungalow hitched to this one is holding up traffic, lame the balloon foot on the pedal.

The tow rating tops out now at 17,000 pounds for fifth-wheel setups, r 15,000 pounds for dualie models with conventional hitches. Hauling is up, oo: 1280 pounds more than last year, epending on equipment. Max combined weight for an F-350 dualie-that means truck, ayload, nd trailer-is 23,500 pounds.

Ford says 90 percent of Super Duty buyers tow, o this load stuff matters. As an option, ou can have a built-in trailer-brake controller that fits into the dash and integrates all the wires and connectors needed for hookup (amazingly, hese things have been aftermarket parts until now). This provides a much more predictable brake-pedal feel, nd it also knows when the truck's anti-lock braking system has engaged, nd rebalances the braking force distributed to the trailer (it does not, owever, ct as an anti-lock system for the trailer).

The heavy-duty trucks in our social circle tow occasionally, ut more often they're the shiniest rides in the parking lot, acking little more than one or two people and a toolbox that weighs, h, half-ton or so. The owners choose them as everyday wear because, ell, hat's the kind of Americans they are. Ford says up to 45 percent of buyers use Super Duty trucks as personal vehicles, lthough they may do some heavy-duty work, oo. About 30 percent go for the top-of-the-line Lariat trim.

The self-expression possibilities don't stop there. You can drive your cowboy boots. The King Ranch model, amed after the 825,000-acre Texas spread that sprawls over three counties, as rugged-looking brown leather on the seats, heel, nd center console, uch in the style of men's clubhouse furniture, nd a dark mandarin teak pattern in its plastic wood. Chrome badges confirm your Rancher status to bystanders.

Or perhaps you're ready to go whole hog in three tons of four-door four-by-four, he Harley-Davidson Super Duty. Behold and tremble! This mighty mutha comes in your choice of F-250 or F-350, ropelled between gas stations by either the diesel (90 percent) or the V-10. Each of them wears more licensed chrome Harley-Davidson logos than a whole showroom of Milwaukee sickles, lus an uncountable number of official "Bar and Shield" logos miniaturized down to bifocal size. Even the black screen printing around the windshield is made of teensy B-and-S shapes.

Ford says three-quarters of the Super Duty line will have no price increase, ut there's no word yet on Harley models, imited to a volume of less than 8000. For the record, hough, ast year's F-250 H-D with the usual diesel option and TorqShift automatic plus a few common options listed for almost $50,000.

2005 Ford Super Duty F 250 Review - RoadTestStill SuperDiesel Power, ugust 01, 005

Since being introduced in 1998 for the '99 model year, he Super Duty has become the tow vehicle of choice for those hauling everything from horse trailers to weekend homes. It's no wonder the Ford stands out in the towing crowd, specially after winning our three-way shootout between the big boys in the class of 2004 (see Spring '05 Diesel Power). Ford is constantly improving its truck because it has to stay ahead of the ever-increasing competition in order to keep its sales crown, specially in the race for diesel dominance. For every gasoline-powered Super Duty that leaves a dealership, ord sells two Power Stroke-equipped Super Dutys, o the tune of more than 200,000 a year, ut-pacing both Dodge and GM.

Here is a look at what's new to the Super Duty line for 2005.

On the surface, ou might be hard-pressed to spot the changes to the '05 Super Duty, ut if you look closely enough, hey are there, ost noticeably in the contemporary headlight assembly and billet-look grille. But, he major tweaks lurk just beneath the surface. Wanting to test out a SuperCab longbed, e ordered up a differently configured truck than from our Heavy Hauler test.

Again, ur test truck arrived with the exceptional four-valve-per-cylinder 6.0L Power Stroke V-8 turbodiesel engine, hich, hrough the magic of engine control system remapping, ow develops an additional 10 lb-ft of torque, aising the '05 to a mountain-moving 570 lb-ft. Right foot-taunting horsepower remains the same at 325. Another improvement over last year's model is the 250,000-mile service life rating of the new 6.0L-with proper maintenance, f course. All of this twist is routed through Ford's TorqShift five-speed automatic transmission, irst seen behind the Power Stroke in 2003 and now available behind all Super Duty engines.

With the heavy-duty user in mind, ord went to great lengths to improve the chassis, tarting with thicker steel and longer boxed sections on the frame for enhanced strength and durability. All of this chassis tweaking has allowed Ford to up the payload by as much as 1,280 pounds to a maximum of 5,800 pounds on some models, aking the 1-ton moniker of F-350s a misnomer. Choose an F-350 and click off the dualie box and you'll be rewarded with a 15,000-pound conventional tow rating, hanks to a new 2.5-inch receiver hitch. Go fifth-wheelor gooseneck, nd that number leaps to 19,200 pounds.

Redesigned 17-inch wheels are now standard equipment, nd 18-inch wheels are optional, hich enabled Ford engineers to increase the brake rotor sizes. The rotors are now 5 percent larger in diameter. The larger size dissipates heat better, specially on long downhill grades. Both the F-250 and F-350 received larger calipers, ith the fronts offering twin 60mm pistons, full 11 percent better than the '04 model, iving the driver better brake feel. The rear calipers have also been upgraded to twin 48mm pucks on F-250s and F-350s and 54mm on F-350 Dualies. With bigger brakes allowing heavier loads, he parking brake has also been improved and now offers a 15 percent higher load rating. Consumers and fleet managers alike will be impressed with the expected 50 percent increase in brake lining life on single rear-wheel vehicles and double the life on dualies.

Another interesting option that came with our Super Duty was Ford's new TowCommand system, hich integrates a factory trail brake controller with the vehicle brakes and ABS system for better control. It uses different braking strategies for normal and emergency braking and has a message center that can alert the driver to a malfunction or disconnected wiring. As a bonus, he TowCommand module comes with four auxiliary switches that can be used to control any aftermarket or upfitter product.

Another notable improvement for 2005 comes in the way of the new front suspension on four-wheel-drive models. The venerable front leaf spring solid axle has been dropped in favor of a better-riding, etter-handling link coil spring solid axle, eminiscent of the proven system found on previous solid-axle and coil-spring Fords. This new suspension improves the Super Duty's ride and shortens the turning radius by several feet. While parking lots haven't suddenly become Super Duty-friendly, t least the newfound maneuverability will take an edge off jockeying for a primo space at the races.

We enjoyed the firm smoothness of the new coil spring frontend. Behind the wheel, he handling is noticeably improved, nd the suspension works well under the 6,500-pound truck. With the trailer loaded up, ur F-250 pulled straight and true and had none of the tail-wagging sensation common to other brands. Over the road, he cabin is one of the quietest in its class, nd we loved the giant towing mirrors. Just as in our shootout, his Power Stroke was a joy to tow with, nd with little turbo lag and no flat spots in the powerband, t always had reserve power on tap to get through anything we asked of it.

Our tester came decked out in Lariat trim, hich warms the restyled dash with a Cherry Zebrano wood application, long with leather seats, pecial gauges, nd a slew of comfort items that make you question if you are in a pickup truck or a custom luxury tow rig. With a long reach to the dash, e especially liked the redundant audio and climate controls on the steering wheel, hich made for easy adjustments on the fly, articularly while towing our 28-foot trailer through the two-lane twisties. With a full day of towing under our belt, his improved Super Duty proved to be a relaxing steed, ausing little tiring or fatigue to the driver with the trailer hitched up.

Off-road, ur Super Duty had excellent clearance and good tires from the factory, ut even on the FX4 Off-Road package, he shocks could have used better tuning. We would also order ours with the optional limited-slip differential since we got in a few situations where the extra traction would have been welcomed. However, he Super Duty with its manual hubs and manual transfer case lever, oil springs, nd solid axles remains a rugged and capable platform for off-road buildups.

The Super Duty has always been a great base for aftermarket upgrades, nd with the improvements for 2005, t is even better, specially for those who regularly tow or haul. After spending lots of quality time in the '05 Super Duty, e stand by our original shootout assessment that Ford currently has the best all-around diesel truck on the market. But, ith redesigns from Dodge and the General lurking on the Horizon (and rumors of a V-8 Cummins for Dodge and 3/4-ton diesel Titan on the way), t's going to take more than laurels to keep the Blue Oval boys ahead of the game. For those of us who love our oil-burners, t looks like the fullsize truck game is about to get really exciting.
