The 2010 Ford F250 is a powerful, industrial strength truck, and is the big brother to the F150. With its heavier and stronger parts, it gets the name of Super Duty, and is manufactured to be able to tow and carry heavy loads. Because of this, the fuel efficiency in the 2010 Ford F250 is expected to be lower than that of smaller sized pickup trucks.

The F250 contains a standard 300-horsepower, 5.4-liter V-8, with a six-speed manual transmission or five-speed automatic. If you need even more power, the F250 goes all the way up to a 362-horsepower, 6.8-liter V-10 engine. It is available in Unleaded and Diesel. Whether you're hauling a small trailer, or thousands of pounds of concrete, the Ford F250 accommodates most users needs. It offers many configurations including 4x4, and can haul up to 10,000 lbs.

A regular cab model F250 has a 38 gallon fuel tank, while the crew cab and super cab can hold up to 30.5 gallons. You may get up to an estimated 20 MPG with standard driving, and as low as 11 MPG while towing or carrying heavy items in a regular cab. While this may not seem like much, you are getting excellent fuel efficiency for the amount of power and towing capacity you receive, which Ford has increased over previous models.

When compared to other trucks with similar specs and price, the F250 is slightly better in performance and fuel efficiency. Of course, your mileage may vary based on the situation, but if you need a Super Duty type truck, the Ford F250 is well worth checking out, especially with today's gas prices.
