2006 Ford F-250 Overview

By Cars.com Editors
Vehicle Overview
Super Duty models are the hard-hauling brutes in Ford's full-size pickup truck line. The F-250 is the three-quarter-ton version, while the F-350 is rated at one ton.

Freshened styling on the Ford F-250 Super Duty adopted elements of Ford's Mighty F-350 Tonka concept truck for 2005. A new 6.8-liter V-10, with three valves per cylinder, produced 52 horsepower more than its predecessor. The Power Stroke diesel engine gained 10 pounds-feet of torque for a total of 570 pounds-feet, and a new three-valve version of the 5.4-liter V-8 delivered an additional 40 hp. Ford said the new TowCommand System, with its electric trailer-brake controller, was an industry first.

The F-250 Super Duty pickup comes in XL, XLT and Lariat trim levels. For 2006, equipment that was previously included just in the Lariat Luxury Package is standard in all Lariat models. An Amarillo Package for Lariat Crew Cab models features Blazing Yellow paint, 18-inch forged aluminum wheels, black leather seating surfaces and other extras. A Chrome Package is available for XLT and Lariat SuperCab and Crew Cab trucks.

Forged polished-aluminum 20-inch wheels are available on SRW Crew Cab 4x4 Lariat, King Ranch and Amarillo editions. The King Ranch version of the Lariat Crew Cab is offered in two new two-tone color treatments.
