If you’re in the market for a pick-up truck, you might fall into one or both of two categories: the recreational type who needs to play with big boy toys during forays into the rugged outdoors, and the working man who prioritizes towing capacity and payload to help you get the job done. Enter the 2016 Ford F-250 XLT Truck. This heavyweight combines fantastic driving dynamics with massive hauling capabilities to satisfy even the most demanding outdoorsman or heavy hauler.
A Powerful Core
The 6.2L 2-Valve Flex Fuel V8 Gas Engine makes up the core of this heavy-duty vehicle. It is a powerful engine capable of cranking up to 385 horsepower plus 405 lb.-ft. of torque. Paired with a TorqShift 6-speed SelectShift Automatic transmission, expect smooth and responsive handling under your command.
Trailering big payloads comes with serious challenges, and Ford has ensured that the F-250 is up to the task. Should you find yourself swerving or cornering too quickly, you will find that the AdvanceTrac with Roll Stability Control (RSC) automatically engages to help all of your wheels stay planted on the ground. Building on this feature is the Trailer Sway Control (TSC) which adjusts engine power and employs selective braking to help you retain trailer control. Combined with the model’s other safety features, these will give you enhanced stability so you remain confident when towing hefty loads.
These and more have made the 2016 Ford F-250 XLT Truck a firm favorite in its class. Visit a Ford dealership near Clarksville, IN to learn more about what it has to offer.
