2016 Ford Super Duty F-250 Altoona PA
Few people jump behind the wheel of a model as large as the 2016 Ford Super Duty F-250 Altoona PA without the need for serious performance. We’re not talking about a model that you can take to the track just to test its speed, but a truck that can be depended upon day after day to help you get the job done right. Only small changes were made to the 2016 model year, with LED warning strobe lights and a rearview camera system now available. Engine choices that made it a favorite remain the same for 2016.
One of the reasons drivers continue to choose Ford trucks is the reliability and strong build the brand has based its name on. Those seeking a model that can tow up to 16,600 pounds when towing a fifth-wheel or gooseneck trailer can hope for no better than Ford’s diesel engine option. The base engine doesn’t disappoint either, with capability falling to just 12,500 pounds. Paired to either engine is the six-speed TorqShift SelectShift automatic transmission, created to handle the heavy torque of these engines.
The standard engine in the F-250 XL is the best-in-class 6.2-liter SOHC V8 which returns 385 horsepower and 405 pound-feet of torque. An optional conversion kit also makes the model compatible with natural or propane gas to lower the cost of fueling the model. A 6.7-liter V8 Turbo engine is also available.
Why bother with a truck if it can’t tow? The 2016 Ford F-250 XL is only available as a single rear wheel truck, reducing its capability compared to DRW options. With either engine choice it can tow a max trailer weight of 12,500 pounds with either two- or four-wheel drive during conventional towing.
Standard features in the LX trim level of the 2016 Ford Super Duty F-250 is manual air conditioning, an AM/FM stereo, 17-inch steel wheels, manual-telescoping trailer tow mirrors and vinyl upholstery. Options range from the Ford SYNC system to remote ignition and heated seats in the King Ranch trim.
