although ill take the win. i dont trust car and driver or motor trend articles. i dont think its a truly accurate test. i like how another site recently posted on here that the 2011 f250 was the worst buy.

soon to go?:
2000 f-250

soon to come?:
6.4 and spartan

i agree with that but its still nice to see good things said about our trucks and it seems like we will be able to expect a little better fuel economy especially when they are towing

IIRC it was the 2010 they tested as the worst buy, not the 2011. Which makes sense seeing as the 2011 was not on dealers lots yet when the test was done.

After reading they make note that they did not like the feel of the F250 brakes. Could this have something to do with them being vac boosted?
