The 1999 Ford F-250 is a tenth-generation full-size pickup truck manufactured by the Ford Motor Company. A part of the F-Series lineup, which is a series of trucks that has been in production since 1948, it was introduced in 1996 with a complete redesign. It offers an more aerodynamic exterior, spacious interior, and better fuel economy.

The 1999 Ford F-250 is a new lineup separate from the F-150 midsized trucks. The XLT and Lariat now come with four-wheel anti-lock brakes, while the XLT only gets air-conditioning as a standard feature. The F-250 Super Duty series also makes its debut and is available in crew cab, super cab, and regular cab models. The list of optional features have also been simplified.
The styling of the 1999 Ford F-250 is different from that of the other F-Series when its tenth generation was launched in 1997. It's available in several different body types including regular and extended cab versions. Although part of the F-Series, it's significantly different from the half-ton F-150 truck. In fact, both trucks use a completely different platform.
The 1999 Ford F-250 offers several different interior options, ranging from minimal requirements to luxurious options. The interior has much more modern feel than the previous versions, especially in the dashboard and location of controls. Head, leg, and shoulder room are not a problem, and the Super Duty version incorporates a larger cab resulting in even more space. The cab is roomier than the regular F-250 with larger and more comfortable seats and better seat track travel.
The 1999 Ford F-250 Super Duty also includes a fold-down armrest and utility bin for holding a laptop or portable fax machine. The rear bench for the Crew Cab XLT and Lariat models also includes a fold-down armrest and cup holder. Luxury options include power windows, air-conditioning, and leather-wrapped steering wheel.
