5 reasons to buy the 2012 Ford F250

1. Strong gas and diesel engine options

The 2012 Ford F250 has two engine options, and no matter which one you choose, you won't be lacking horsepower. The standard engine for the 2012 Ford F250 is a 6.2L gasoline V8 with a hefty 385 hp and 405 lb-ft of torque—more than enough power for day-to-day tasks. You can also find the 2012 Ford F250 with a 6.7L turbodiesel V8 engine, increasing output to 400 hp and a jaw-dropping 800 lb-ft of torque. Both engine options are paired with a six-speed automatic transmission.

2. Potent pulling power

If you're in the market for a heavy-duty pickup truck, chances are that strong pulling power is a high priority—and the Ford F250 delivers. When equipped with the standard 6.2L V8 engine, the 2012 Ford F250 can tow an estimated 12,500 lbs. when properly equipped.

 With the 6.7L turbodiesel engine, towing capacity jumps to an impressive estimated 14,000 lbs. when properly equipped.

3. Plenty of trims and configurations

With multiple choices of engines, cab configurations, bed lengths, and drivetrains—along with four trims and a jam-packed feature list—there's almost certainly a 2012 Ford F250 that's right for you. Three cabs are available: The Regular Cab has the standard 8-foot bed, and Crew Cab and SuperCab models can be found with a 6.8-foot bed. XL and XLT are the no-frills trims of the lineup, with the Lariat and King Ranch gearing more toward premium, feature-rich comfort. Many of these premium features are also available in optional packages on the XL and XLT trims.

4. Comfortable and capable interior

If you're looking for a powerful truck that's also comfortable for everyday driving, the 2012 Ford F250 is more than up to the job. Crew Cab and SuperCab models can seat up to six passengers, depending on the trim, with over 40 inches of front- and rear-seat legroom—so all occupants have more than enough space to stretch out. If you want maximum comfort, the Lariat trim has dual-zone automatic climate control, leather upholstery, and wood grain trim, and the premium King Ranch trim adds enhanced leather upholstery and door trims as well as heated and ventilated seats in the front and rear.

5. Lots of off-road capabilities

Looking for the ultimate road-trip companion? No matter where the journey takes you, the Ford F250 can get you there. All 2012 Ford F250 models have available four-wheel drive, as well as the FX4 Off-Road package, which adds an entire suite of all-terrain features like an electronic locking rear differential, hill descent control, skid plates, and enhanced shock absorbers. Load up your gear in the bed and head out on an adventure—the Ford F250 can easily handle highways as well as rougher terrain.
