Quick Specs Comparison

For the first time ever, the F-150 and Super Duty (F-250, F-350, and F-450) models share the exact same cab design, but these truck models share little else. The F-150 offers a variety of engines, ranging from a fuel-efficient 3.3L V6 to a potent 3.0L turbodiesel. The F-250 picks up where the F-150 leaves off, significantly ramping up performance figures and offering a tremendous level of capability.

While the F-250 certainly provides more brawn, the F-150 offers more modern tech and equipment. You'll find advanced entertainment and convenience specs, as well as cutting-edge towing tech on the F-150. The F-250 shares some of the features of the F-150, but it cannot match the options of its smaller brother.
