The Super Duty Diesel F250 is a remarkable behemoth. It will take you pretty much anywhere you want to go, off or on road, with minimum fuss. The new 6.7 liter Diesel is so remarkably quiet you’d think it was a gas motor. The tremendous torque is really the selling point of this expensive option, which actually amounts to a tremendous bargain when you consider the output per dollar. Just how much would you have to spend to make a gas motor that strong? At least $20,000. Spend a week behind the wheel of this comfortable, conveniently optioned, four-door XLT trim level cab, and you’ll hardly know you’re in a truck – until you flatten the accelerator pedal.
