Car reviews - Ford - F-Series - F250 XLT Crew Cab utility

The Car

6 Jun 2002

FORD F-Series is a long-standing model with many changes made to the vehicle over the years. A decade of change has escaped the Australian market since Ford stopped importing vehicles in 1992, with various privately imported models filling the void. Hence when looking at the 2002 F-Series, you tend to think you are looking at an entirely new vehicle that has moved ahead in styling in one tremendous leap. Ford claims the Australian release F-Series was built from the ground up as a right-hand drive and offers a "bumper to bumper" three-year/100,000km warranty - although there are some odd cabin ergonomics and it misses features such as a glovebox, which is offered on US models. Sharing styling with its US counterpart, the F-Series trademark is an enormous chrome grille on a blunt front end that rises to just under the armpit of an average sized person, and a wide cabin requiring a step up to reach the driver's seat. A raised central bonnet section and flared metal guards give the vehicle a strong, determined look - and its sheer size and presence is imposing on the road.
