2018 Ford F-250 Engine Specs

The Ford F-250 gives drivers the choice between a gas and diesel engine. The gas engine is a 6.2L V8 that generates 385 horsepower and 430 lb-ft of torque. However, if you want to up those numbers, the 6.7L Power Stroke V8 turbo diesel engine will get you an output of 450 horsepower and 935 lb-ft of torque.

This engine also comes with an Intelligent Oil-Life Monitor™, which tracks your oil levels and driving habits to predict your exact oil change interval needs, so that you're always getting the most out of your engine oil.

Both engines come with a TorqShift 6-speed SelectShift® Automatic Transmission with progressive range select mode that allows you to reduce your available gear range in severe conditions for improved handling and hauling capabilities.

F-250 Towing Capabilities

If you regularly haul a boat to Lake Naomi, you'll like that the Ford F-250 can tow a maximum of 18,500 pounds when properly equipped, and when sporting the diesel engine.

With the gas engine, you can tow a maximum of 15,400 pounds when properly equipped. That's more than twice the weight of the average speed boat!  

This truck was built to tow, so you'll also have several driver-assist features at your disposal to help you get the job done. Tow/Haul Mode, for example, allows you to utilize engine braking to stay steady when descending a steep grade.

Standard Trailer Sway Control also helps you keep control by adjusting the braking mechanism to keep the trailer steady and in its intended lane of travel. This is especially helpful when encountering high cross winds or winding roadways.

When you're ready to dock, the available Trailer Reverse Guidance System will automatically switch the view of your available rearview camera between the side and rear as necessary, along with auditory overlays to help successfully guide you into a parking spot or down a boat launch.

Ford F-250 Payload and Body Configurations

Drivers have plenty of options for how they can configure their F-250. This Super Duty truck comes with three cab configurations: Regular Cab, seating three, and the SuperCab and Crew Cab, each seating six.

These cabins can be paired with either an 8-inch or 6 ¾-inch box, carrying 78.5 cubic feet or 65.5 cubic feet of respective cargo. With the Regular Cab, you can fill your box to this truck's maximum payload of 4,250 pounds. The SuperCab and Crew Cab will get you a maximum payload of 3,970 pounds and 3,870 pounds respectively.
