For a long time now, Ford has had the top of the line of trucks in America with their F-Series, and a standout within this pantheon of the most trusted automotive titans is the F-250. Strong, tough, and prepared to handle whatever you toss at it, the 2018 F-250 continues its lineage as one of most impressive and durable pickups in Bismarck.
Safety is always a priority for Ford vehicles, and the new F-250 is powerful proof of this concept in action. Among safety tech that comes standard on this pickup is the AdvanceTrac with Roll Stability Control (RSC), a feature that works via naturally detecting any wheel slippage and then changing the motor's torque to settle the issue before it becomes a major problem. The Tire Pressure Monitoring System (TPMS) will give you a loud and clear warning if any of your tires have pressure that falls beneath the suggested safety cutoff. Going a step further, the available Blind Spot Information System uses sensors in the back of your vehicle to alert you of when another vehicle enters your blind area. Other available safety options include the Reverse Sensing System and rear-view camera, both of which work to keep you abreast of everything that is going on while you back up your F-250 Super Duty.
Another major point of importance for Ford is addressing the need for performance and durability. Fortunately, the 2018 F-250 wins on both of those fronts. In the engine department, this pickup can have either a gas or diesel motor, based on your preferences. The 6.2 liter (L) 2-valve V8 FFV gas motor clocks in at 385 horsepower (hp) and 430 pound-feet (lb-ft) of torque. The 6.7 L Power Stroke V8 Turbo Diesel motor pushes out an impressive 440 hp and 925 lb-ft of torque. Both of these motors work seamlessly with a six-speed transmission (automatic) to generate all the power needed to tackle even the toughest of jobs.
On the towing side of the equation, the new F-250 is ready for work, to say the very least. For ideal towing performance, the fifth wheel/Gooseneck Trailer Prep, High Capacity Trailer Tow or 9,900 pound (lb) Gross Vehicle Weight Rating (GVWR) packages are all ready to give you a hand. Make the most of the Super Duty's best-in-class towing by enjoying trailer sway control capabilities, the trailer brake controller with Smart Trailer Tow Connector, and the Ultimate Trailer Tow Camera – all of which make hitching up and pulling significantly more secure and productive.
Comfort is something each new vehicle should prioritize, and to that end the 2018 F-250 has a veritable bounty to offer. Alongside area lamps for the truck box, there are extra creature comforts to enjoy, like a 110-volt/400-watt electrical plug, a motor block warmer, LED box lighting, and LED side view mirror spotlights. You can go the additional mile in securing your truck by opting to add on slide plates for the fuel tank and transfer case, as well as a bedliner (spray-in) to shield your truck bed from dents, rust, scrapes, and other unsightly abrasions.
For the Bismarck driver who needs a truck for work purposes, the F-250 has all that could possibly be needed for your work equipment, tools, and other hardware. With a Regular Cab (4x4), you will get 7,160 lbs of payload storage room with the eight-foot box. A SuperCab (4x4) has a payload limit of 4,624 lbs with the 6.75-foot box and 6,780 lbs with the eight-foot box. The Crew Cab (4x4) has 4,470 lbs of payload limit with the 6.75-foot box and 6,540 lbs with the eight-foot box. How many passengers you can bring along with you will naturally vary based on cab size, with the Crew Cab being the clear choice for those drivers in Bismarck who find themselves bringing along more than two companions.
If you step through Eide Ford Lincoln's front doors searching for a truck that can buckle down, remain reliable, and own work, then it is time to turn your attention toward Ford's 2018 F-250. The members of the F-Series are smash hits in America for a multitude of reasons, and the new F-250 is yet another sterling case of this concept in motion.
