Eric's Autos: 2021 Ford F-250

Eric Peters on

It used to be that most trucks came with big V-8s, leaf springs and solid axles. If you want such things in a new truck, you'll want to look at a heavy-duty truck such as the Ford F-250.

What It Is

The F-250 is what a truck used to be: heavy-duty in all its variants. Every F-250 comes standard with a big V-8, and you can get it with an even bigger one -- or a diesel one.

It is also available with an 8-foot bed and either two or four full-size doors -- two things becoming unavailable in lighter-duty trucks.

Prices start at $34,230 for the base XL trim regular cab with an 8-foot bed, a 6.2-liter V-8 and rear-wheel-drive. XLT, Lariat, King Ranch, Platinum and Limited trims are also available, with prices topping out at $84,390 for a Limited trim with a crew cab, four-wheel drive and an 8-foot bed.

Also available is a Tremor package that includes 35-inch off-road knobbies on 18-inch steel wheels; rock-crawl mode; standard four-wheel drive; locking front and rear differentials with water fording tubes for the axles and transfer case; and a raised suspension with even heavier-duty off-road shocks.


This one also comes standard with a 7.3-liter V-8, with the option to buy the 1,050 foot-pounds of torque 6.7-liter turbodiesel V-8.

It stickers for $53,820 to start.

What's New

The 7.3-liter V-8 joins the engine lineup as a value option to the diesel engine option.
