2018 Ford F-250 Review

Drivers in Mechanicsburg, Harrisburg, and Carlisle can learn more about what the 2018 Ford F-250 has to offer with our in-depth review.

F-250 Engine Performance

The 2018 Ford F-250 is available with two V-8 engines, both mated to a six-speed automatic transmission. The base engine is a 6.2-liter V-8 rated for 385 horsepower and 430 pound-feet of torque, while the heavy-duty option is a 6.7-liter turbodiesel V-8 rated for 440 horsepower and 925 pound-feet of torque.

The turbo-diesel can tow an astonishing 32,000 pounds and requires a commercial driver's license. Thanks to its variable ratio steering setup, new front radius arms and revised rear suspension, the F-250 can handle this load with remarkable composure and maneuverability.


Unlike many work-oriented trucks, the 2018 Ford F-250 doesn't strip down its exterior in favor of capability. Chrome power bars, stylish creases and signature badging give the F-250 a unique, modern look, while the aggressive front end and masculine proportions leave no doubt about its purpose.

The cabin takes a subtle approach, with minimal details and utilitarian features. That's only for the work-duty trucks, however, since the F-250 can be packed to the brim with luxury additions, like leather upholstery and convenience features, and the best of modern technology.

Ford Technology

The base model of the 2018 Ford F-250 is stripped down to the bare essentials for fleet vehicles, but each trim level brings a little more technology into the mix. A rearview camera and an infotainment system with an LCD screen are added just one trim level up, and it only gets more luxurious from there.

The F-250 can be equipped with a premium sound system and an eight-inch touchscreen Sync 3 infotainment system, which is touted as the best on the market. This system boasts clear, crisp graphics, a large, responsive touchscreen and one of the easiest menus to navigate. It also has a long list of available apps and connectivity features to enhance the entertainment options.

Aside from connectivity technology, the F-250 also offers advanced towing features to increase its safety and convenience. A surround-view system with seven cameras is available, which virtually eliminates blind spots and allows the driver to maneuver into the tightest of spots. Blind-spot monitors, lane departure warning, adaptive cruise control and forward collision warning are also available.
