A 1993 Ford F-250 XLT 4×4 with a big block V8 under the hood is the ideal mix of vintage looks in an exceptionally capable package

In fact, you have the log bed, dual fuel tanks, gooseneck, and all other pieces that make this classic a useful long-haul tow king.

XLT just means getting more of everything you love about a truck. The long bed gives you more capacity; the higher 4×4 stance gives you more go-anywhere ability; and the overall tough truck look gives you more stature. It makes for an attractive look on a pickup that was made to be useful. In fact, that’s why we like the paintwork. The classic Oxford White has multi-tone black and gray stripes that have the classic 1990s. It’s not original and it’s far from perfect. The result is a period-correct look that you also won’t hesitate to utilize this truck to the fullest. So while the value price can leave room in your budget for a respray or other improvements, we bet you’re really just loving the look of a solid classic that’s still great for modern duty. The 8-lug wheels, full-length running boards, side grab handles, towing mirrors, front bug guard, and top running lights are all part of an industrial-strength cool. And of course, you noticed the bed. It already has both the gooseneck and mounting tabs for a camper. The tailgate is ready for the big trailers. And you’ve even got an upgraded rear with a strong hitch, plug, and trailer brake.

Inside is long-haul comfort. The front has dual high-back bucket seats that include fold-down armrests and adjustable back bolstering. The steering wheel is on a tilt column to give you a good view of the full gauge package with large speedo and handy tach. This is an extended cab, and that means a back seat to hold more people or secure cargo. This XLT is loaded with the best features, including power windows, power locks, a cup holder center console, and air conditioning with a newer compressor. Plus, the upgraded AM/FM/CD stereo has modern Bluetooth.

Under the hood is one of the most desirable options around: Ford’s 7.5-liter V8. This was one of the final years for the famous big block, and so you are at the intersection of cool history and modern fuel-injected versatility. It’s unknown if the odometer reflects the actual mileage, but this big block warms up to have a powerful and road-ready feeling. Part of the long haul comfort also means going farther with the ease of cruise control and dual fuel tanks. And you also have a four-speed automatic transmission with highway-friendly overdrive. There’s even a camper-friendly rear sway bar. Plus, as an extra-duty F-250, this has a proper two-speed transfer case to deliver exceptional four-wheel-drive control. Add in power steering and power brakes with discs up front, and this is a very useful F-250.
