2013 25 vs 350

With options being roughly the same, what would the differences be between a F250 and F350 SRW? I am still waiting for my Q3 Boss 302 and am thinking of cancelling and getting a truck again since there appear to be some good deals out there.

You're right, the deals are crazy right now. Picked up my 350 for $51K & change...and it is Lariat Ultimate, block heater, 5th wheel prep, upfitters, etc. (more details in my signature)...The only difference I know is that my 350 can haul more! The ride height of my 350 long bed is higher than the 250 short beds it was parked next to. And the long beds have a bigger fuel tank.

I don't know about the 11'+, but the 10' difference was a little more than meets the eye.
Brakes, axle thickness, 6,000K front springs compared to 5,200K on the 250.
To me, the extra $800.00 difference buys a better truck, and the money will be reclaimed at trade in time.

Would the ride in the 350 be harder than the 250? What would the experience be like compared to a Raptor? I'm thinking that the diesel will have better mileage, but with gas cheaper than diesel...

Good points, I didn't know this! But I did realize the 350 barely costs more than the 250, which is why I bought it. The dealers here had plenty of 250s how I like them, but I could only find three 350s the way I wanted, so I snatched one up quickly!

I went from an 07 Tundra Crewmax Limited, could not believe how nice the 350 ride was, or how quiet the cabin is...very impressive, especially considering I'm coming from a Japanese 1/2 ton ride to an American diesel 1 ton!

Any good ideas why Ford didn't go with HID headlights, like on the Raptor? I'm not thinking that price is a good answer, since the sticker on a loaded truck is into the price of lower mid end luxury cars.

It's funny that HIDs aren't becoming more of a standard. Our 2007 Acura MDX had them, but our 2007 Yukon XL Denali didn't...Our 2005 Toyota Sienna had them, but our 2007 Toyota Tundra didn't. All of these vehicles were fully loaded models. Go figure. I'm guessing it just isn't high enough on the general public's wish lists for manufacturers to put them on all of their vehicles yet.

My 2007 Tundra 5.7L was getting 14.3...my 350 6.7L is getting 16.6...our Yukon XL Denali 6.2L gets 12.9...not sure what the Raptor's 6.2L gets, but I imagine it'll be several MPG less than the 6.7L.
