5 reasons to buy the 2018 Ford F250

1. So many configurations

Whatever your trade, project, or crew size, the 2018 Ford F250 has what you need to get the job done. Working in a family partnership? The regular cab seats three passengers, has 11.6 cu-ft of in-cab storage, and includes an eight-foot box for materials or machinery. Driving with co-workers and kids? The SuperCab and Crew Cab both seat up to six across two rows. Pick the SuperCab for daily work duties and family trips, while the Crew Cab's extended second-row legroom (43.6 inches) means more space for your hardworking team.

2. Impressive cab comforts

Once you've chosen the right cab size for your needs, you'll find plenty of passenger comforts and workplace smarts, thanks to the 2018 Ford F250's six available trims. Base trims feature lockable storage and wipe-clean vinyl upholstery. If you're driving between work sites every day, pick the Lariat trim or above for body-hugging front-row bucket seats and rear privacy glass.

3. Ready for anything

Whether you're moving goods for customers or providing services to the farming or construction industries, the 2018 Ford F250 has the practicality to drive your business forward. Two box-length options (6.8 ft or 8 ft) are available, and rugged standard features like a military-grade reinforced steel bed, BoxLink premium locking cleats, and a removable tailgate allow you to confidently plan ahead while remaining adaptable to new demands.

4. Technology that works hard

The 2018 Ford F250 has plenty of available features that elevate its role as a work truck. Optional functionality includes the addition of up to seven onboard cameras, providing assistance on maneuvers and cargo box or trailer monitoring on the move, or revealing available space through dense forests or rocky passes. Shop for a model with available overhead console upfitter switches (optional from XL; standard on Limited), and you can enjoy a 2018 F250 with the additional outlet features your workday requires, like CB radio functionality or auxiliary light sources.

5. A hauling holy grail

It's called Super Duty for a reason. When you need to haul a horse box, trailer home, or heavy machinery, the Ford F250 steps up, providing supersize hauling capability. For maximum pulling power, the 2018 F250 powered by the turbodiesel 6.7L Power Stroke® V8 engine and AWD can tow an estimated 17,500 lbs. when properly equipped.

 While finding a 2018 F250 with the right hauling capacity for you will depend on several factors, such as engine or cab size and the choice of FWD or AWD, this truck has the mettle to conquer any challenge.
