As far as the F series goes, there is a wide consensus that Ford company has been right on the money. The new, redesigned 2016 Ford F-250 Super Duty is expected to bring a breath of fresh air to the series – not that it was necessary at this point, but notable nonetheless.
2016 Ford F 250 Super Duty Exterior
The first thing you notice when looking at the exterior of 2016 Ford F-250, is the redesigned front grille (and front in general). The front seems bigger, with a Ford badge in a place of prominence. Another thing drawing attention to the front are the sizable, futuristic LED headlights. There is lots of chrome in this model, and bigger wheels and bumpers have not gone unnoticed. The same goes for the trailer, which has also been enlarged.
Interior of 2016 Super Duty
As for the interior, the 2016 Ford F-250 comes with a well-designed, luxurious cabin. It features nicer, softer materials of superb quality. The leather upholstery is especially nice. So are the adjustable seats, matching any body type. Ample room is a blessing for people taller than average, and the woodwork is outstanding. Apart from this, the 2016 F-250 comes with loads of high-tech equipment in order to ensure maximum comfort for its passengers, all five of them. Telescopic steering wheel, cruise control, the AC, navigation system, parking sensors, My Ford Touch display with its own infotainment system, Bluetooth connectivity, an audio system with 9 speakers – the list goes on.
Engine and Transmission of 2016 Ford F 250 Super Duty
The hood of the 2016 Ford F-250 hides one of two engines: one is the 6.2l V8 engine capable of producing 385 hp and 405 lb-ft of torque, and the other one is the 6.7 liter PowerStroke diesel engine, delivering 440 hp and 860 lb-ft of torque. The first engine features the direct-injection system, which improves fuel efficiency. Transmission is the new 8-speed automatic gearbox, although you can always opt for the old, 6-speed automatic. It is unclear whether the new, experimental 10-speed automatic heavy-duty transmission will be completed in time to be installed into the 2016 F-250 or not. In any case, the new car features a greatly reduced weight due to the usage of lighter materials. Because of this, and the improved transmission, the fuel efficiency and handling are expected to take a dramatic turn for the better.
Ford F 250 Super Duty 2016 Release Date
As far as the release date goes, the 2016 Ford F-250 is expected to be hit the showrooms during 2016. By the looks of it, the second half of 2016, unless something happens.
2016 Ford F 250 Super Duty Price
The exact price has yet to be revealed, although as far as the basic models go, judging by the class, it should be anywhere between $35,000 for a basic model to $60,000, depending on equipment and version.
The new 2016 Ford F-250 seems to be yet another hit for the Ford company. Considering the price and the package it will include, the new car is going to be a sound buy regardless of your transport needs.
