Our Take

From the Cars.com Vehicle Test Team

The Good

  • Jaw-dropping levels of diesel torque available at highway speed and at low RPMs
  • Six-speed automatic transmission is available for both gas and diesel engines
  • Best driver information system among all full-size trucks
  • Excellent fuel economy from the diesel
  • Hill descent control and electronic locking rear differential in FX4 off-road model
  • Fifth-wheel and gooseneck trailer prep package is only $400 from the factory with a warranty
  • Much-improved steering reduces driving effort
  • Telescoping steering wheel

The Bad

  • The only way you can tell it's the new Super Duty is to see it head on
  • The rest of the truck looks old
  • New 6.2-liter V-8 gasoline engine doesn't feel as powerful as the old 6.8-liter V-10
  • Needs better brake feel and power to handle big increases in towing and hauling
  • F-450 pickup has been downgraded in payload capacity and shares most frame hardware with F-350
  • Ride quality in crew-cab and extended-cab models could be improved with hydraulic body mounts

2011 Ford F-250 Overview

By Cars.com Editors
Vehicle Overview
The 2011 Super Duty is the third version of Ford's heavy-duty pickup truck in the last four years and the second since Ford reworked the truck for the 2008 model year.

Ford's changes are critical to keeping its lock on the heavy-duty segment, where the F-250 three-quarter-ton and F-350 one-ton trucks rule the pack with almost 50 percent market share; the Ford F-450 1.5-ton continues in a segment that it owns but with several major revisions.

Heavy-duty pickups exist to tow and haul the heaviest loads. While the 6.7-liter Power Stroke diesel will be the power-pulling crown jewel of the 2011 Super Duty lineup, two other gas engines will be available for the F-250 through F-550 pickups and commercial chassis cabs: today's 6.8-liter V-10 Triton and an all-new 6.2-liter V-8, which is also slated for use in the 2010 Ford F-150 SVT Raptor off-road pickup. This is the engine formerly referred to as the Boss V-8 and the Hurricane before that.

The single overhead cam (SOHC) 6.2-liter V-8 features two spark plugs per cylinder and dual equal variable cam timing.

Ford won't say what the final power figures are for its new 2011 engines, though we have heard that the 6.7-liter PSD will make more than 390 horsepower and 720 pounds-feet of torque. The 6.2-liter V-8 is expected to pump out approximately 400 hp and 400 pounds-feet of torque.

For the U.S., the 6.2-liter gas engine will be E85-compatible from Job 1, and the 6.7-liter Power Stroke will be certified ... Read more
