2005 Ford F-250 XLT 4x4 SD Crew Cab 172 in. WB OverviewThe Ford Super Duty pickups benefit from a major chassis design for 2005 that improves ride quality, handling and maneuverability.Payload capacities and towing capability have been improved.Towing is greatly enhanced by a new integrated electric brake control.Not only is it elegantly designed right into the instrument panel, but it operates much better than aftermarket controllers, making it easier to modulate the brakes for smooth, accurate stops.
Fresh styling gives the 2005 Ford Super Duty pickups a more masculine, big-rig appearance.Inspired by Ford's Tonka truck concept, the new Super Duty trucks look like they're ready to get some serious work done.And they are.
When you need to haul more than 3,000 pounds, or to tow more than 9,900 pounds, then even the best-equipped F-150 isn't up to the job.That's where the Super Duty trucks come in.Payload capacities of up to 5800 pounds are available in the 2005 Super Duty trucks, with tow ratings of up to 17,000 pounds.The Ford F-250 Super Duty competes with the Dodge Ram 2500, Chevrolet Silverado 2500, and GMC Sierra 2500.The F-350, with its available dual rear wheels, competes against the 3500-series models from GM and Dodge.None of these, however, match the Super Duty's top payload and towing capacities.
The 2005 Super Duty pickups continue to feature first-class powertrains.Both of the V8 gas engines are upgraded for 2005.The standard 5.4-liter V8 is now based on Ford's modular V8 architecture and incorporates three valves per cylinder for better breathing, improved power delivery and cleaner exhaust.The 6.8-liter V10 also gets the modular-based, three-valve cylinder heads, giving it class-leading horsepower and torque.The V10 and 6.0-liter turbo-diesel now have electronic throttle control, expanding their utility in accessory applications.
Styling revisions for 2005 include a bolder, almost brutish front end and broader flanks.The frame is stronger, now boasting a fully boxed front section and thicker walls in high-stress areas.A reconfigured rear suspension improves the ride and load balance, and a new front suspension sharpens steering response and significantly tightens the turning circle.
The new Super Duty interiors feature increased use of higher grade materials, better assembly quality and more people-oriented amenities make for surprisingly comfortable accommodations, especially in the up-level trims.We love the King Ranch edition, swathed in rich cow hides that looks like they came right out of the tack room.
