F-250 Engine Options

Now that you now about the F-250's towing capacity, it's time to take a look at its different trim levels and engine options offered by this vehicle. After all, engine power is what provides towing capacity, making this feature very important.  

The 2018 Ford F-250 can be equipped with one of two ultra-powerful engines. One option is the 6.2L V8 engine that puts out 385 horsepower and 430 lb-ft of torque. If you want the most towing power possible, however, you should pick the available 6.7L Power Stroke® diesel engine that outputs 450 horsepower and an astounding 935 lb-ft of torque. The F-250 is the superduty truck that provides you with the engine power you want and need.

F-250 Towing Technology

In addition to raw power, the reason the Ford F-250 is the perfect truck for your towing needs is the selection of technology features that makes trailering safer and easier. For starters, this truck is available with a trailer reverse guidance system, a class-exclusive feature that uses side view mirror cameras to provide you with a visual guide, so you can more easily reverse while trailering.

Another class-exclusive feature provided by the F-250 is its Tire Pressure Monitoring System with in-dash display that lets you check your tire pressure from the comfort of your cab. You will also have access to a Blind Spot Information System with Cross-Traffic Alert and Trailer Tow that makes you aware of other vehicles in your truck or trailer's blind spot.
