#11 of 13 Looking to buy a F250 Diesel
Jul 26, 2004 (5:41 am)
I was told last year to wait until after January to buy the F250 Diesel because Ford was going to make engine improvements. I now saw the pictures above and read the one web sight about the new transmission and break controller coming out on the 2005 models. I like what I'm reading. I just have one question, what kind of gas mileage improvements will the 2005 have? I talked to several Dodge Ram Diesel owners with the 373 gears and they get 22 MPG highway and 18 MPG towing a 30-foot TT. From what I hear Ford only gets 18 MPG highway and 14 MPG towing. Will this improve in 2005?

when will this vehicle be available for special order [ i assume few if any dealers will have on lot] ?
where can i find the factory order form [copy] online; ford direct.com only has 2004 "build your vehicle form" or when will they change to the 2005 form ?
how will dealers sell this vehicle in terms of discount from sticker / how was it done in 2004 ?
finally if i do a special order how long does actual [real] delivery time typically take ?
