2022 Ford F-250: Performance
You’ll have some powerful options when it comes to choosing the engine that will move your machine. The standard equipment can be sufficient for many drivers, and said equipment includes a 6.2-liter V8 engine paired to a 6-speed automatic transmission. With this standard engine, you’ll experience up to 385 horsepower and 430 lb-ft of torque.
Other engine options include a 7.3-liter V8, which can produce up to 430 horsepower and 475 lb-ft of torque. Then, there’s the 6.7-liter Power Stroke® Turbo Diesel engine, which generates the maximum 475 horsepower and 1,050 lb-ft of torque.
These latter two engines will come paired with a 10-speed automatic transmission. With this transmission, various modes will be available to suit your driving that day, such as Tow/Haul, Deep Sand/Snow, and an available Rock Crawl mode. That extra sense of customization will be a nice touch for those who participate in all sorts of driving adventures.
2022 Ford F-250: Towing and Payload Capacity
While you might choose an engine for its power alone, you’ll also want to know the towing capacity it can provide. For conventional towing when properly equipped, the standard 6.2L V8 engine can handle up to 15,000 pounds. The 7.3L V8 engine is similar, at a maximum 15,000 pounds. The turbo diesel really takes it up a notch, offering 20,000 pounds of maximum capacity to pull along your heaviest equipment.
The selection of a 4×2 or 4×4 drivetrain as well as the cab style and bed length will all influence the towing capability of your F-250. The axle ratio you select will also play a role.
Additionally, payload is important for any equipment that will be carried in the bed of the truck. Luckily, the F-250 offers a payload range of 3,040 pounds to a maximum of 4,260 pounds. As with towing, the cab style and the bed length will affect how much these numbers total.
2022 Ford F-250: Technology
The technology of your truck also deserves a spotlight. It will be there to assist with towing a trailer as well as to provide entertainment for a long work day.
For some trailering help, there’s the available Ultimate Trailer Tow Camera System with Pro Trailer Backup Assist™. This equips your vehicle with a knob to move your trailer more precisely. Plus, you’ll have use of Trailer Reverse Guidance for greater knowledge of the positioning of both your vehicle and trailer.
For some technology fun, there’s the available SYNC® 3 system, which provides an 8-inch touchscreen and connections to Apple CarPlay® and Android Auto™. For even more fun, consider an upgrade to the SYNC® 4 system. This one instead comes with a larger 12-inch touchscreen as well as wireless Apple CarPlay® and Android Auto™ for added convenience.
If you need power for your phone while you’re out and about, there’s a standard smart-charging USB port or an available upgrade to two smart-charging ports. An upgrade to the wireless charging pad will also provide another option.
