The truck has received various tweaks for the upcoming season and is going to come with a lot of style upgrades and incredible towing rate as well.

But the upgraded body and frame materials is not the only thing that is new for the Ford F-250, there are some unique features and tweaks that this model comes with and which the former ones did not have. Better amenities and interesting composition of the vehicle is what will characterize the new 2016 model. Read the entire review to see what else is installed for the upcoming Ford F-250 truck.
2016 Ford F-250 engine
Under the hood, the 6.2-liter Flex Fuel V8 engine choice makes a return. With an output of 385 hp and 405 lb-ft of torque it combines with a standard 6-speed shiftable automatic transmission and is good to tow a load of 12,500 pounds. This powertrain also comes with an available conversion kit and also adds the auxiliary transmission cooling system.
The Super Duty trim level of the F-250 will also be available with a 6.7-liter turbodiesel V8 engine choice. The engine trim allows for 440 hp and an astonishing 860 lb-ft of torque, which is a very powerful composition and provides some very nice utility characteristics. Its towing capacity is set at standard 14,000 pounds, but it can be even larger with the added fifth-wheel setup and can come up to 16,600 pounds.
Both engine choices will be combined with a standard rear wheel drive (RWD) and can also be set with an optionally available 4-wheel drive (4WD) option which comes with a 2-speed transfer case, auto-locking hubs, and a locking rear differential.
First of all, the 2016 Ford F-250 will return in five different trim levels, the base XL, the XLT, the Lariat, the King Ranch and the top level Platinum. Based on the trim level there are going to be some differences in the looks, but it will mainly concentrate on the added amenities and features that the 2016 version is going to be known for. The best innovation of the exterior part is not so much the style of the car as it is the materials that are used to build the actual car. With some lighter materials, like aluminum, and a steel frame of the chassis the car has been given the potential to be much more useful and provide better specs and performances. It gives the car stability but also some better performance rates, not to mention better fuel economy which has still not been made public.
As for the look of the car, there are not many changes included. The base of the vehicle is going to remain mostly the same and the car is still and imposing presence on the road. It is not the biggest car but may fool anybody as it may seem like that. The features are mostly carried over and the profile remains the same. Some minor details will determine the trim and make it seem a lot more different than other trims.
The inside is drastically remodeled and upgraded. Again, the main difference of the inside is going to depend on the chosen trim level and you will be able to distinguish the 2016 Ford F-250 vehicles like that. So expect to see some vinyl, cloth, or leather upholsteries inside the Super Duty levels. They will also be enhanced with power accessories, power-adjustable heated and ventilated front seats, memory for driver settings, cruise control, and telescoping tilt-wheel steering. In the higher trim levels you can expect to see the power-adjustable pedals, rear parking sensors, and a rear-view camera that come as a standard part of the equipment. The King Ranch and the Platinum levels go all the way with remote engine start, a remote garage door opener and simulated wood cabin accents.
The technological goodies that come available inside will certainly include a CD player with up to 9 premium speakers in the higher trim levels. The Bluetooth-integrated SYNC infotainment system comes available for all trims except the base XL version, while the GPS navigation with real-time traffic is only given for the highest King Ranch and Platinum trims. The seating setup will be offered as a 3-passenger Regular Cab setup, 5- or 6-passenger, 4-door Super Cab one and the 5- or 6-passenger 4-door Crew Cab.
