Regarding Super Duty cab noise level from the 7.3L diesel and using the A/C. (I wear two hearing aids and my wife wears one in her right ear.) The only noise measurement that is quantitative is the radio volume control.
In town typically 3 1/2 bars.
On the road at 65 MPH, 5 bars. When wife want to hear a bit better on the road, 6-7 bars.
- Trademark attributes such as power, capability and amenities are
improved for the new model year as evidenced by the horsepower increase
in the 7.3L diesel engine (from 235 to 250), standard trailer tow
package across all trims, and the availability of both chrome tubular
cab steps and an in-dash 6-disc changer.
- Improved fuel economy by addition of valance air dam (Late
- Child tethers standard on all seats (Late Availability)
- New seat sew style on XLT and Lariat seats
- New colors added:

- Power mirrors standard on XLT
- New chrome steel wheels standard on XLT
- Fog lamps standard on XLT and Lariat trims

- Reverse vehicle aid sensor available on XLT and
- Heated seats available on Lariat trims
- 265/75Rx16E BSW all-season tires standard on Lariat trim

It was also nice to know that Ford finally added Fog Lamps to the SuperDuty. That has been a long overdue feature.
I have a new 2000 F-250 Lariat SuperDuty 4x4 with the V-10 engine on order. I believe that the lumbar support for the captain's chair passenger seat is not available. After speaking with Ford Engineering, the passenger captains chair is identified by assembly drawing as a with and w/o lumbar feature. Even more confusing is that the Excursion Limited does offer the passenger lumbar feature. Anyone know about this issue?
P.S. 12.7 miles per gallon @ 10k miles.
Are the diesels really as bad as I have been reading?
How do you get 2001 info from Ford?
Thanks for the help.
is the diesel much more fuel efficient?
what has been your experience with dependability?

The answer is no. Ford has contract and Navistar has a new engine developed that will power Fords for the next 5 years. Cummins isn't even in the picture for Ford light duty pickups.
In the 2 ton applications (big delivery trucks), you have always been able to get Cummins in Fords, as well as Cats, or Detroit Diesels, or Internationals.
I hope it is everything I heard about it.
I killed my '91 302 this weekend.
we have a 6000lb camping trailer we pull regularly.
No towing done here but the engine of choice is the 7.3L diesel. I just like the diesel. If you're pulling on a regular basis I think that the best choice is the diesel. But, then again, I'm just weird.
I am planning to purchase a 2001 F-250 SD 4WD (probably diesel) to replace my faithful 1988 suburban. We plan to switch to a 5th wheel camper from our tow behind camping trailer. My question is: can I tow with the short box F-250? Is there enough room for the hook up or does it have to be the long box? I have never towed a 5th wheel at all, and I see that many of you tow regularly. It would only be several times a year but I think they look and sound like awesome trucks.
I have been reading with interest the many postings here about the Ford Super Duty's and am becoming more convinced that this is the truck for me.
Any help would be appreciated. This is my first time (well second now) in the town hall forum.
The standard mirrors are not adequate for the safe operation of my vehicle. The right side mirror is flat and the driver can not see enough area on the right side of the pickup to drive safely. The dealer and Ford Motor Company’s Customer Assistance Center told me “that is what Ford puts on that truck, get over it-no one else has complained.” This is a knowing disregard for my safety. I believe this is called a negligent design defect.
I bet I can find a few opinions.
Base MRSP = $27,035 (up $440.00 from 2000)
7.3L Turbo Diesel = $4,720. (up $120. from 2000)
Elec 4-spd auto trans = $1,095. (no Change)
3.73 Ltd Slip Axle = $285. (no change)
Cab Steps = $370. (no Change)
Sliding Rr Window = $125. (no Change)
Driver Pwr Seat = $290. (no Change)
Privacy Glass = $100. (no Change)
Keyless Entry = $170. (no Change)
Premium Stereo w/cass/cd = NC (Down $190. from 2000)
Power Mirrors = NC (Down $100. from 2000)
Overall, Ford has now included CD and power mirrors on the XLT packages. This is good news. MSRP increase appears to be nominal, with only changes in Base MSRP and Diesel engine.
Anyone else having additional informaiton, please let me know.
