Default F250 decisions

Looking at either an xl w/stx package or xlt... both have blind spot and 360 center console and lane departure worth the $5k difference?

Not to me, and I wouldn't buy a truck with cloth seats.

All of the options on the luxury models are just so expensive. I would be inclined to order a F250 SuperDuty because the ones on dealer lots are either XL's or Lariats and King Ranch models. You can pay $20K down and still have $1,000 monthly payments on the high end diesels.

I was in the market last week after receiving a $3,000 coupon from Ford on a F150 or SuperDuty truck. A mid line F250 with the 7.3 gas engine would have cost $45K. I went with the F150 STX with a 2.7 Ecoboost engine for $31K. The new truck is so easy to drive and quiet that it makes my old F250 seem like a log wagon.

Center console means no more road head, just saying. The older flip up middle console was much more convenient.

I can stay in my lane just fine but the console vs the middle seat is a must for me. Worth $5k, not a chance but I’d still get the console. Try to negotiate on other items. Love my xlt with the “premium” package.
