The interior of the Ford F-250 Super Duty is very similar to that of the F-150, which was itself redesigned for the 2021 model year, so it's all still very current and modern. In the F-250, the dashboard is slightly different, with an uninterrupted molding from the instrument cluster to the far end of the infotainment screen, instead of the smaller truck's twin-pod design. Materials are of serviceable quality, and it's a definite improvement on what went before, but it doesn't feel as plush as a Ram 2500 inside. At the base level, the cabin is spartan, with vinyl on the seats and floor. A handy feature of the infotainment system is the ledge on which to rest your finger while operating the touchscreen. As you move higher up the trim levels, the front bench is replaced by a two-seat arrangement, the materials improve in tactile quality, and a lot more equipment is fitted. From the Lariat and up, a 12-inch digital gauge cluster replaces the analog gauges. Interior space is abundant in the Crew Cab, less so in the SuperCab's second row.
With more than nine inches of ground clearance across the board, it's quite a clamber to get inside. Access can be eased by specifying the fixed platform running boards or step bars available on the bottom trims. Power-deployable running boards are standard from the King Ranch and up. You have a commanding view from high up in the F-250, but there are plenty of blind spots around the rear due to the high bed sides, just like in any HD truck.
The seats of the Ford F-250 Super Duty are soft and offers excellent seating comfort, effectively damping out jitters and vibrations on the move that get past the suspension. The XL gets manual adjustment, but the XLT gets a power driver's seat and, from Lariat and up, both front seats are powered and feature heating and ventilation, while the rear seats get heating too in the Lariat Crew Cab. There's plenty of interior space in the Regular Cab, with 43.9 inches of legroom available - the same as all trims' front row. The SuperCab isn't very big in the back, and the 33.5 inches of legroom is almost seven inches down on the equivalent Ram 2500 Crew Cab. The F-250 Crew Cab fixes that with an excellent 43.6 inches of rear legroom, 0.5 inches more than the comparable Ram 2500 Mega Cab. The Limited comes with Max Recline front seats that fold almost completely flat so that drivers can get proper overnight rest on long-haul trips. These seats are optional on all trims with separate front seats, which is to say, all but the XL and XLT. The Lariat can optionally have its separate front seats swapped out for a three-seater bench, still trimmed in leather.

There is a variety of interior colors for the Ford F-250 Super Duty, but not at the base level; the XL only gets a Medium Dark Slate color scheme, and vinyl upholstery is standard. You can upgrade this to cloth for $315 in the same color. The floor is covered in rubberized vinyl. The XLT gets cloth upholstery in Medium Dark Slate or Baja (beige) and floor carpeting. Both bottom trims have a urethane steering wheel. The Lariat gets leather upholstery for the front seats and premium vinyl for the rear seats in one color only: Black Onyx. From this point on, the steering wheel is leather-trimmed.
The King Ranch has a predominantly brown interior color scheme, with Kingsville Antique leather in two-tone Java, with King Ranch branding on the front and rear seatbacks and center-console lid, and a woodgrain finish on the dashboard. The Platinum's leather is rendered in Black Onyx, with mustard-colored center striping on the seats and console, and Platinum branding. The Limited's interior is decked out in diamond-quilted Admiral Blue/Light Slate leather upholstery, with Admiral Blue leather on the steering wheel. Every trim gets a color-coded cloth headliner except the Limited, which has one finished in Miko suede.
The cargo volume of the Ford F-250 Super Duty is 65.4 cu-ft in the case of the shorter 6.75-foot bed, which measures 81.9 inches long, 66.9 inches wide, and 21.1 inches deep. The corresponding figures for the 8-foot bed are 78.5 cu-ft and 98.1 inches, with the same 66.9- and 21.1-inch width and depth measurements. Payload varies from a minimum figure of 3,352 pounds for the SuperCab 4x4 with the short bed and 475-hp diesel engine to a maximum of 4,268 lbs for the 6.8L gas V8 XL Regular Cab 4x2.
Interior storage is plentiful and well thought out. The center-seat backrest of models with a front bench can fold forward, creating a flat surface with inset cupholders. It also features a fold-out flat surface that can be used as a small table or desk. XL and XLT SuperCab and Crew Cab models can have the center seat of their front bench exchanged for a lidded center-console storage compartment, just like the standard item on all the upper trims. For extra storage space, all SuperCab models have a 60/40-split fold-up rear bench, while Crew Cab models have a 60/40-split flip-up/fold-down rear bench. On the Lariat and up, there is lockable storage under the rear bench. A standard Crew Cab feature is a fold-down rear armrest with two cupholders. The interior also gets the usual glovebox and door pockets in all doors. Models with individual front seats have additional uncovered storage space in front of the center-console storage box, alongside two cupholders. All trims have a dashtop tray, and a built-in vehicle safe is optional.

The XL is not overendowed with standard features, and makes do with vinyl on the seats and floor, manually adjustable seats, manual air-conditioning, a 4.2-inch digital productivity and driver-information display between the two main gauges, power locks and windows, and a manually tilting/telescoping urethane steering wheel. Standard driver assists are meager and include only cruise control, a backup camera, hill-start assist, trailer-sway control, automatic headlights, and a trailer-brake controller. Many more features are added to higher trims, and these include a 12-inch digital gauge cluster, power front seats with heating and ventilation, cloth or leather upholstery, a leather-trimmed and/or power-adjustable steering wheel, dual-zone climate control, and a brace of driver assists, such as adaptive cruise control, blind-spot monitoring, intersection assist, parking sensors, forward-collision warning, a power moonroof, and a surround-view camera. Many of these features found on upper trims are optional on lower trims, along with others such as a vehicle safe and fully reclining front seats.
Even the base XL and XLT trims get a decent cloud-connected Sync 4 infotainment system with an eight-inch touchscreen, wireless Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, 5G Wi-Fi capability that can connect up to ten devices, a radio/MP3 player, and an audio system with four speakers on the Regular Cab and seven on the four-doors. The Lariat upgrades the infotainment system to a 12-inch touchscreen, adding navigation, SiriusXM, HD Radio, and an eight-speaker Bang & Olufsen audio at the same time (optional on the XLT). The King Ranch adds to this an 18-speaker Bang & Olufsen audio system (optional on the Lariat).
The 6.75' bed has a volume of 65.4 cu-ft, and the 8' bed has a volume of 78.5 cu-ft. Payload varies by trim, from a minimum of 3,353 lbs to a maximum of 4,268 lbs.
The single-row Regular Cab XL and XLT have a three-seater front bench. The XL and XLT SuperCab and Crew Cab has a second-row three-seater bench as well, for a total seating capacity of six. All other trims have two individual front seats and seat five passengers.
