2017 Ford F-250 Super Duty – While it may not be refined as its rivals, the beefy capabilities, feature galore, and a peppy performance, the new 2017 Ford F-250 Super Duty is still a solid choice for shoppers in its segment. Its strengths include a serene cabin, a strong payload and towing capabilities, an appealing technology option list, and a wide array of body styles and equipment levels. Its release date should be expected in April of this year.
For 2017, the Super Duty gains a rearview camera, an LED warning strobe lights, and an optional cargo box delete option. In general, the 2017 model is set to come with only mild changes relative to its predecessor. However, there is plenty to covet on the pickup truck considering it has been one of the most capable vehicle in its segment.
A 6.2L gasoline V8 engine or a 6.7L diesel V8 juggernaut provides the necessary brawn to propel this vehicle to a league of its own. The 6.7L engine comes with a stout 440 horsepower and 860 pounds of torque which is more than what you’d require for your towing and hauling needs.
With either engine, you can expect a robust maximum towing capacity of 15,900 pounds with the gasoline V8, and up to 16,600 lbs. with the diesel powerplant.
Exterior wise, the model offers an array of trim levels and body styles to match its capability. Interior wise, the cabin comes jam-packed with lots of technology, convenience, and luxury features even for the base model. The only notable downside to the Super Duty is the window sticker that can be a detriment for many people.
The 2017 Ford F-250 Super Duty despite its capability and refreshments over the years, the vehicle will have to brace for a bruising battle with its newer competitors. Some of them include the 2017 Nissan Titan XD, the 2017 Chevrolet Silverado, and the 2017 RAM 2500.
