2005 Ford F-250 / F-350 - Price Quote

Visit Ford for more information on the Ford F-250.

There are trucks for personal use, commuting from the burbs and back at the end of the day, and then there are work trucks. Trucks with the power and performance needed for heavy-duty construction, large payload towing and carrying, and the passenger capacity for 5 big guys.

You aren't going to have much fun carrying five grown men in a Ranger SuperCab with a trailer full of snow-blowers, 4-wheelers or landscaping equipment coming off the back. For that kind of work look no further than the 2005 Ford 250/350 Super Duty Pick-ups as they deliver more capability, gas or diesel power, depending on engine choice, and a combination of standard and optional features that will make you excited about heading out to work everyday.

Available Models
The 2005 Ford F-250 and F-350 Super Duty trucks are available in regular cab, extended cab and crew cab body styles. There are three standard trims, plus the new Harley Davidson package: XL, XLT and Lariat.

Interior Features
A more refined interior provides luxury where one might expect workmanlike sparseness. These work trucks may be about capability and performance but that doesn't mean the interiors are uncomfortable. The base XL has an AM/FM stereo, driver and front passenger air bags and an air filter minder (diesel only) along with cloth upholstery and available air conditioning.

The XLT adds standard air conditioning, power windows and door locks, tilt steering wheel and a CD player, while the top-level Lariat edition adds Cab steps, fog lamps, six-way power driver and passenger seats with leather seating surfaces, a leather-wrapped steering wheel, privacy glass and a rear sliding window. Various options and options packages are available including keypad entry, and XL Decor kit.

Exterior Features
The 2005 Super Duty lineup has seen a number of exterior design changes, drawing cues from the popular Mighty F-350 TONKA concept truck's chiseled good looks, including the bold front grille - always a Super Duty signature as well as sharper edges and vertical bar surfaces to provide a milled appearance.

However, the special 2005 Ford Harley-Davidson™ Super Duty now offers an industry-first "flame" paint option, with choice of black-and-red or blue-on-blue. Packages can be added including the High Capacity Trailer Tow package, regular Trailer Towing package, Snow Plow package and various up-level wheel and tire choices.

¾ ton Super Duty trucks are all about power and this year is no exception with more power than ever. A new pas-powered 3-valve 6.8-liter V-10 has best- in-class power and torque. The Triton V-10 produces 355 horsepower and 455 pound-feet of torque resulting in the highest towing and cargo ratings in the class - up to 17,000 pounds of towing capability. In addition, the all-new TowCommand System makes towing easier with a number of features including an industry-first factory-installed trailer brake controller. The 2005 Ford Super Duty trucks have a redesigned exterior with a tougher look up front and the segment's only 18- and 20-inch wheels.

However, there are choices with two other engines available. The first is Ford's modular 5.4-liter, 3-valve Triton V-8 migrated from the F-150 to the Super Duty. Its three-valve architecture and sophisticated VVT (Variable Valve Timing) technology helps deliver 300 horsepower and 365 pound-feet of torque, an improvement of 40 horsepower and 10 pound-feet of torque over the 2004 Super Duty. More than 80 percent of peak torque - nearly 300 pound-feet - is available starting as low as 1,000 rpm.

Finally, a 6.0-liter Power Stroke direct-injection, 32-valve turbodiesel V8 with cast-iron block and cylinder heads is also available. The Power Stroke engine is now rated with even more power; 325 horsepower and an awe-inspiring 570 lb-ft of torque.

Safety and Security
Lets face it, there aren't many vehicles on the road that are going to be safer than an F-350 Super Duty. However, they do come with standard dual front airbags and antilock 4-wheel disc brakes. New this year is keypad entry as part of an Advanced Security Group option.
