2000 Ford F-250 Overview

By Cars.com Editors
Vehicle Overview
The Super Duty models are the brutes among Ford's pickups — heavy-duty trucks designed for serious hauling and towing. The Super Duty line was redesigned for 1999, and though it is based on the F-150, it sports different styling, roomier interiors and stronger chassis and engines.

All Super Duty models are more than 8,500 pounds gross vehicle weight (the weight of the truck and what it can carry in passengers and payload). This means they are exempt from federal safety requirements for lighter-duty trucks and cars. However, a driver-side airbag is standard on all models and a passenger side-impact airbag that can be disabled by a dashboard switch is optional.

Exterior
Styling differences from the F-150 are most pronounced in front, where a massive grille dominates the Super Duty's nose. Models include regular cabs; four-door SuperCabs with two conventional front doors and two rear-opening rear doors; and four-door crew cabs with conventional front-hinged doors. The F-350 crew cab is available with dual rear wheels, a style also known as a dualie.

The Super Duty lineup starts with the three-quarter-ton F-250 model (gross vehicle weight of 8,800 pounds) and ends with the F-550 (GVW of 19,000 pounds), a truck with a 6-ton payload.

Interior
Just because the Super Duty models are beasts of burden doesn't mean the interiors are all vinyl and steel. Cloth upholstery, leather captain's chairs and a power driver's seat are available to coddle front occupants. A split front bench seat includes a folding center armrest that's large enough to stow a laptop computer.

A folding three-place rear bench seat is standard or optional on SuperCab and crew-cab models.

Under the Hood
The biggest engine available in the F-150 is the smallest engine for the Super Duty models, a 5.4-liter V-8 with 260 horsepower. A 6.8-liter V-10 with 310 horsepower and a 7.3-liter diesel V-8 with 235 horsepower also are available.

Most reliable vehicle

by DDJ from Hixson, TN on July 4, 2018

I've had this truck for 15 years and it is by far the most reliable vehicle I've had. You just can't beat the 7.3 diesel. Ford made a mistake moving away from this proven engine. Read full review

Warranty FAQs

What is a Bumper-to-Bumper warranty?

Often called a basic warranty or new-vehicle warranty, a bumper-to-bumper policy covers components like air conditioning, audio systems, vehicle sensors, fuel systems and major electrical components. Most policies exclude regular maintenance like fluid top offs and oil changes, but a few brands have separate free-maintenance provisions, and those that do offer them is slowly rising. Bumper-to-bumper warranties typically expire faster than powertrain warranties.

What is a Powertrain warranty?

Don't be misled a 10-year or 100,000-mile powertrain warranty doesn't promise a decade of free repairs for your car. It typically covers just the engine and transmission, along with any other moving parts that lead to the wheels, like the driveshaft and constant velocity joints. Some automakers also bundle seat belts and airbags into their powertrain warranties. With a few exceptions, powertrain warranties don't cover regular maintenance like engine tuneups and tire rotations.

What is included in Roadside Assistance?

Some automakers include roadside assistance with their bumper-to-bumper or powertrain warranties, while others have separate policies. These programs cover anything from flat-tire changes and locksmith services to jump-starts and towing. Few reimburse incidental costs like motel rooms (if you have to wait for repairs).

What other services could be included in a warranty?

Some automakers include free scheduled maintenance for items such as oil changes, air filters and tire rotations. Some include consumables including brake pads and windshield wipers; others do not. They are typically for the first couple of years of ownership of a new car.

What does CPO mean?

A certified pre-owned or CPO car has been inspected to meet minimum quality standards and typically includes some type of warranty. While dealers and third parties certify cars, the gold standard is an automaker-certified vehicle that provides a factory-backed warranty, often extending the original coverage. Vehicles must be in excellent condition and have low miles and wear to be certified, which is why off-lease vehicles feed many CPO programs.
