What’s So Special About F250 Rental Trucks?

Ford F250

Ford’s F-Series Super Duty trucks are renowned for their toughness, ruggedness and capabilities that they bring to the table. Ford has outdone its previous F250 models and it has quickly become popular among customers. Needless to say, we love the updated 2019 F250 and have added it to our fleet at Flex Fleet Canada.

Some companies may wonder why they should consider the F250 rental truck for the next job instead of picking out any old pickup truck. As you know, we are very particular about providing our customers the very best pickup rental trucks and there are a number of reasons why we offer F250 rentals at Flex Fleet Canada.

For those who want to know what’s so special about F250 rental trucks, let us enlighten you.

Key Features

Before we go into the details, the first thing you need to know about the Ford F250 is that this is a beast of a machine. Sometimes, ½ ton pickup trucks just do not offer the right amount of power. When that happens, there is no better option to go for than a ¾ ton pickup truck. The new Ford pickup rental truck that we offer gives you more power than a ½ ton truck. At the same time, it does not over-deliver to lose its economical value.


The transmission of the F250 rental truck is the powerful and proprietary Ford TorqShift 6-speed automatic transmission. This is one of the reasons why it is capable of handling the power of big engines. The gears are strong, big and can handle the heavy demands of turbo engines like a champ.

The torque converter locks up at a slower speed. This means, you do not need higher RPMs like normal pickup trucks do. If you like to drive stick, you will be happy to know about the SelectShift feature. It includes the Progressive Range Select option and even the full manual selection. The transmission system also reduces the F250 ‘s reliance on brakes for slowing down.


The standard F250 rental comes with the 6.2 liter Flex-Fuel V8 Gasoline-powered engine. The power of this engine is unmatched by other heavy duty pickup trucks in the same category. There is a reason why the truck’s transmission is so great – this engine needs a transmission that can handle the output it gives.

The engine of the new Ford F250 is designed to deliver the maximum amount of torque at lower RPMs. The engine also generates high torque throughout the power band’s midrange. The shifting is seamless, even with such a powerful engine because of the 6-speed TorqShift.

The alternative option for the engine is the 6.7 Liter Power Stroke V8 Turbo Diesel engine (now available through Flex Fleet Canada). Suitable for long haul jobs, this can allow you to tow huge loads. It is the best engine in the ¾ ton truck class, capable of an impressive 450 horsepower. A large single turbocharger mounted close to the exhaust manifold means it can deliver higher power because of faster air displacement. Another bonus feature is the compacted graphite iron engine block. It’s stronger than the traditional cast iron and much lighter to reduce the power- to-weight ratio.


SYNC Basic, which comes with the standard F250 rental, makes the experience of driving the truck a lot better. You can use your voice to make a call, listen to the tunes you want to, select apps and much more. This feature also makes sure that you keep your eyes on the road while you drive the truck. No matter what important task you need to do using your phone, the SYNC Basic feature on the interior of the F250 will provide. There is also an information cluster screen available on the dashboard, which means you do not need to bother looking at your phone.

You can easily connect your smartphone with SYNC through a Bluetooth connection. Manage all of your phone’s functions through voice command. You can have your incoming text messages read aloud to you. There is also a 911 assist, which will make the call for you in emergency situations, if you can’t. It even downloads the names and numbers from your phone automatically, making your life easier when you need to contact people on the go.
