If you're from Geneva, Canandaigua, and Rochester, you know the value of hard work. Home to the Finger Lakes and a range of farms, drivers in these areas need a truck to keep up with all their worksite needs, and the Ford F-150 and Ford F-250 are desirable options.

To help you decide which one's the right pickup for you, Friendly Ford has put together this helpful review. Read on to learn more and contact us if you have any questions.

Find the Supreme Blend of Power You Crave

Every project calls for something different, so it's nice to have options to choose from. The Ford F-150 delivers with six powertrain options, each offering their own unique benefits:

Engine Option


Torque (lb-ft)

3.0-liter Power Stroke® Turbo Diesel V6



3.3-liter Ti-VCT V6



2.7-liter Turbocharged EcoBoost® V6



3.5-liter EcoBoost® V6



5.0-liter Ti-VCT V8



High-Output 3.5-liter EcoBoost® V6



Clearly, from the baseline 3.3-liter to the heart-racing Hight-Output option, the F-150 is ready to tackle whatever's thrown its way and create an exciting drive wherever you roam.

The Ford F-250 on the other hand, only has three engine selections, but they take power to the next level:

Engine Option


Torque (lb-ft)

6.2-liter V8



7.3-liter PFI V8



6.7-liter Power Stroke® V8 Turbo Diesel



No matter which of these trucks appeals to you, you'll be able to select a diesel option to help you travel from worksite to worksite without having to take a gas station break.

If you need a more commanding performance or supreme pulling power, though, you may prefer the F-250.

Haul Your Equipment with Ease

Most drivers choose a truck because they need enough power to haul their camper out for the weekend or tow heavy machinery around their worksite. Both the Ford F-150 and F-250 deliver with their forceful engines, but the right pickup for you depends on what exactly you need to haul.

If you have a large recreational boat or racecar-hauling box trailer, the F-150 is a great option offering a maximum towing capacity of 13,200 pounds when properly equipped. However, if your demanding lifestyle calls for pulling a multi-horsepower trailer or toy hauler behind you, opt for the F-250 with the ability to tow up to 22,800 pounds.

Have peace of mind while towing in either Ford truck, thanks to the available Pro Trailer Backup Assist™. It seamlessly integrates your vehicle and trailer, so you can control your trailer with a simple turn of a dial when reversing. Therefore, you'll be able to back into a campsite or load your water ski boat into the water with added ease.

Pack Up Your Supplies

In addition to impressive pulling power, your next truck needs to provide ample space for all your tools and supplies. With 6.5-foot and 8-foot bed options, the Ford F-150 and Ford F-250 can fit even bulkier materials with ease.

If you plan on towing heavier machinery, though, you may prefer the F-250, with a maximum payload capacity of 4,260 pounds. The F-150 falls slightly short at 3,270 pounds, but it's still a force to be reckoned with around your worksite with this best-in-class payload.

F-150 vs F-250: Which Ford Truck is Right for You?

The answer to which of these Ford pickups is best for your Geneva, Canandaigua, and Rochester needs depends on your specific lifestyle.

The F-150 is ready for projects around the farm, while the F-250 is prepared to take on larger tasks, so stop by Friendly Ford today to schedule a test drive of your favorite Ford truck.
