In 1953, Ford rebranded the second generation of the Ford F-2 -- introduced originally in 1948 -- as the Ford F-250. Since then, F-Series trucks have been an American staple and one of the country's best-selling vehicles.
The F-Series is now in its ninth generation, and the F-250 is currently available as super-duty truck with several cab options. Because of its specialized purpose as a serious workhorse, the F-250 has been less popular than F-150 siblings -- but remains a rugged, dependable option for duties like hauling and towing.
2008 marked the first year of the second-generation F-250 Super Duty, which debuted with acclaimed revisions. A 6.4-liter PowerStroke diesel V8 replaced the previous model's 6-liter turbo-diesel as the F-250's base diesel engine. Also notable is the overhauled cabin that makes for a much more inviting interior. Original MSRP varied from around $25,000 for a XL trim to over $55,000 for the Harley-Davidson edition. Currently, the F-250 is available with a 6.7-liter PowerStroke turbo-diesel that delivers over 800 pound-feet of torque.
Ford introduced a redesigned F-250 in 1999 as part of the American automaker's "Super Duty" line of trucks. Exterior styling made this F-250 easily distinguishable from its half-ton F-series kin. As far as cab styles and bed lengths go, the configurations were seemingly endless in Super Duty trucks. Available trims included the base XL and top-level King Ranch (starting in 2003).
