This is my second diesel truck, first used, and I am very pleased. I have heard all the horror stories about the 6.0L powerstroke, and it does concern me, that's why we decided to purchase the extended warranty. I did have to get a valve cover gasket and a rear end gasket replaced, but both were done within the 30 day warranty Carmax gives. The truck, however, was put to the test within the first month of me owning it. After the first week, I made a 1,200 mile trip, and the pulled my 10,500 lb camper 700 miles after I had it only 3 weeks, then made another 800 mile trip, dry. Needless to say, it is performing the tasks in which I bought it to do!!
Love my truck :)

I am a Ford girl, always have had Ford trucks pulling horse trailers and have NEVER let me down. My F150, which was totaled at 220,000 miles still was great and pulled strong. Have already been down to Texas, Louisiana, Georgia, Alabama, Tennessee, Virginia, Maryland, and Pennsylvania, with my F250..... Drove like a dream, highly recommend... Already has tow package including trailer breaking. I pull a goose neck and a straight trailer with NO problems.

Thank you CarMax.
Ford F-250 Overview
The Ford F-250 is one of Ford's heaviest pickup trucks, rounding out the popular F-series. Building on the success of the F-150, the F-250 was built to be sturdier and more powerful.
Ford F-250 History
The Ford F-250 was introduced in 1999 as a more heavy-duty version of the F-150, one of the best-selling trucks in the U.S. With each of its generational updates, the exterior has been restyled to be more masculine, and engines have been upgraded for more power.
How It Drives
As heavy duty trucks, Ford F-250s are equipped with very powerful engines to ensure that they can continue to haul heavy loads with efficiency and ease. Barring that, driving experience is similar to the F-150; the main caveat is that the F-250 is much heavier and, as a result, certainly drives as weighty as it looks. This powerhouse operates best at lower speeds, though firm brakes ensure that it can handle more velocity than expected.
Used Ford F-250 Value
Though it has many similarities to the F-150, the F-250 is a powerhouse that can carry and tow just about anything. The Ford F-250 will not disappoint anyone who prioritizes functionality above all else.
Ford F-250 Standard Features
Second generation Ford F-250s are equipped with with 6.4L V8 engines. More recent F-250s stand out as a powerhouse due to their turbocharged 6.7L V8 engines. The truck is still loaded with popular features such as Bluetooth connectivity and navigation.
A truck can offer the perfect blend of utility and power. The sturdy truck bed carries all the tools needed to get a tough job done, and the engine and its torque can help tow all the equipment. With that in mind, different trucks have different towing options. Whether it’s towing for work or the family vacation, here are seven used trucks that excel at pulling their weight.
Do frigid temperatures and harsh weather leave you cold on the idea of braving the elements in your car? When you’re piloting a vehicle that’s up to the task, wintertime driving isn’t so much of a challenge. Instead, it can be fun!
