The Ford F-Series is the popular vehicle product line in America. Those in the market for a new full-size truck might be eager to know about the differences between the 2019 Ford F-150 and F-250. Below we'll highlight the relative capabilities of each and focus on the areas in which they differ.

Exterior Design: F-150 vs F-250

The exterior differences are negligible because both 2019 F-150 and F-250 share the same cab style. F-150 drivers can select a short, standard or longer truck bed while the F-250 only comes in the standard truck bed design. F-150 drivers can opt for 22-inch wheels that are not available on the F-250. The F-250 features larger exterior mirrors, sharper grille design, and larger front fenders. Also, the F-250 trim levels are offered with the Super Duty logo. 

F-150 and F-250 Engine Specs and Performance

The Ford F-series are recognized for their efficiency and good performance, which puts them at the top for hauling, towing, and other rough-road work. All this is made possible by powerful engines. 

The 2019 F-150 comes with the standard 3.3-liter V-6 (290 horsepower; 265 lb.-ft.) engines that offer a maximum towing capability of 7,700 lbs. with a maximum payload of 1,990 lbs. For better results, upgrade to the 2.7-liter twin turbo V6 which boasts a massive 325-hp and give you a maximum towing capacity of 9,000lbs. Ford doesn't stop there as the other options only get stronger. Coming in with a more powerful is the 3.5-liter high-output V6 engine (375 hp; 470 lb.-ft.) that produces a maximum towing capacity of 13,200 lbs. and a payload of 3,320 lbs. and the 5-liter V8 engine (395-hp) that offers a maximum towing capability of 11,400 lbs. All F-150s are offered with a 10-speed automatic transmission except for the base-level 3.3-liter V6, which gets a 6-speed automatic.   

The larger and heavier 2019 F-250 has two engine options and you can expect greater towing and payload capacities. The standard 6.2-liter V8 engine produces 385-hp and 430 lb.-ft. of torque and gives you a maximum capability of 17,500 lbs. The upgraded diesel option is a 6.7-liter Power Stroke V8 with an impressive 450-hp., 935 lb.ft. of torque and capable of towing 21,000 lbs. The F-250 engines are paired with a 6-speed automatic transmission. 

Another area where both the models differ is pertaining to the front suspension. The F-150 employs an independent front suspension system while the F-250 together with the Super Duty trims uses a solid front axle.
