Does a Ford F-250 Super Duty offer a manual transmission?

I want to buy a Ford F-250 Super Duty to haul my camper and trailer, but I’m worried that an automatic won’t have the control I need. Does Ford offer the F-250 Super Duty with a manual transmission?

Hauling up to 15,000 pounds, the
Ford F-250 Super Duty
is a beast when it comes to towing and hauling. Unfortunately, Ford hasn’t offered an F-250 Super Duty with a manual transmission since 2010.
Citing the discomfort of stick shifts for modern American drivers, Ford gave manual transmissions the axe starting in 2011. If you want to get a Ford F-250 Super Duty with a manual, you will need to look for 2010 or older models. These come with a six-speed manual transmission that can give you a bit more torque when you need it.
If you don’t want to buy a model that’s more than 10 years old, Ford’s 10-speed TorqShift automatic transmission gets great reviews from critics and drivers alike. It balances smooth shifting with the right amount of torque for easy towing and hauling. You may not like the idea of an automatic, but go for a test drive, and you may change your mind.
