Ford never stops reinventing their brand. It’s difficult to not hear the Ford name and desire any one of their Ford Tough vehicles. But it’s this year, that Ford has again stepped up their Ford truck game by bringing you an even better F-Series. We had the Ford Raptor, the Ford F-150, and of course, another favorite, the 2017 Ford Super Duty. If you are out there looking for the best work truck, or you simply like big trucks, the Ford Super Duty is the best bet here.
The Super Duty is generally seen as a work truck, but that didn’t stop Ford from adding all the extras to keep you interested and honestly to keep you happy when you are driving down the road. You may feel a little more awesome driving the down road with a killer SYNC 3 system posting up on your dashboard and playing your favorite tunes.
For 2017, the Ford Super Duty’s exterior took advantage of the LED lighting, which dominates the driving lights and the quad-beam headlamps now present. The Super Duty joined the 2017 Ford F-150 in dropping a significant amount of weight. Ford added the all-steel frame, one that is 24 times more rigid than the 2016 Ford Super Duty model. The Super Duty’s cab body is also made with military grade aluminum meaning its takes a lot more for you to dent and ding this beast.
The trim levels regular cab, SuperCab, and CrewCab are no longer available but the XL, XLT, Lariat, King Ranch, and Platinum options were added, and they are ones you will absolutely love. If you are looking just for a standard work truck, opt for the XL and the XLT trim levels. We know you secretly want to choose the Lariat, King Ranch, or Platinum. In that case, we think we should just go for it. For 2017, the Super Duty also incorporates the trailer-brake controller and moved it closer to the driver while also adding integrated auxiliary switches into the overhead console. Ford also flattened out the floor on the second row so you can handle your cargo a bit better.
We know probably the biggest reason of all for even considering this truck is the towing, and we plan to focus on that. Ford added seven cameras to improve visibility in your surroundings when towing around heavy cargo behind you. Adaptive steering to reduce wheel-input for low-speed operation is also included and steering sensitivity is reduced when the truck runs at quicker speeds. The Super Duty also has adaptive cruise control and automatic braking functions, in-cab tire-pressure monitoring, lane departure warning, and the SYNC 3 with the 8.0-inch infotainment system.
As you would know, Ford definitely doesn’t skimp on the powertrains, because why would they? There is a 6.7-Liter Power Stroke V-8 turbo-diesel, and the 6.2-liter gas engine paired with a six-speed automatic transmission. We promise, with powertrains like this you’ll be towing more than you can imagine.
It seems Ford isn’t in competition with anyone but themselves. Ford trucks continue to be the most sold trucks throughout the world, meaning, you should get down to your local dealer as soon as possible and learn how to make one yours today, tomorrow, and for the rest of your life. Choose Ford and always Ford! They have the most reliable trucks on the market.
