A lot of truck for your buck
The Ford F250 is a big old truck; a three-quarter ton truck, to be precise. So it can carry a mighty load and still drive you wherever you want to go with ease. As a van for work, this is one of Ford's best examples. It's a vehicle that can give you all the space and towing power you need, but that also allows for ease of driving and even comfort. The Ford F-Series first appeared in 1958 and has been ever popular as a reliable workhorse of a truck for decades.
It's all about the suspension
Ford are clever when they come to designing trucks that can also be used as a day to day car. The F250 has a solid rear suspension that offers superb handling on even the most rugged of roads, meaning that the driver is pretty much untroubled by any bouncing or juddering. That's even the case when the massive 6.2-litre V8 engine is working hard, pulling a load for any number of miles over most terrains.
The standard V8 diesel engine in the Ford F250 will give you an impressive 385bhp, and 420-pound-foot of torque. Or you could always have the Ford Power Stroke V8 model engine instead, which gives you a mighty and meaty 440bhp, and 925-pound-foot of torque. If you're towing, carrying, or if you're simply driving for the pure pleasure of it, the Ford F250 is heaven on four wheels.
Wide range of options
The Ford F250 XL or XLT are both available on eBay, you'll also find a wealth of spare parts for both models. The XLT has an optional bed extender to give you that little bit of extra room. Whichever you choose for practical reasons, or whichever style suits your tastes, you can't go wrong with a Ford.
