2017 Ford F250 Super Duty: Lighter Yet A More Powerful Beast
Ford's F-Series rolled out in 1948 and over the years, the car maker has been the top-selling pickup truck nameplate all over the world. Ford F-250 to F-550 Super Duty trucks are assembled at the Kentucky Truck Plant in Louisville, Kentucky. These Super Duty trucks are exceptionally civilized and equipped with the latest technologies available.
The SuperCab 4x4 packed with the 6.7L Power Stroke V-8 Diesel which is rated at 440 horsepower and a bulky 925 pound-feet of torque. This particular model is one that's seemingly built for heavy-duty off-road action. This F-250 is a towing monster which capacity ranges from 12,000 pounds to an impressive 32,500 on F-450 4-wheel-drive Crew Cabs when it's properly rigged. Payload weight tops out at 7,650 pounds on the rear-drive F-350 regular cab. The tail end of the system had to be custom bent to accommodate the trick Rogue cantilever rear suspension system.
The F-250 makes that work easier with a tailgate you can control with one hand, and with a step and grab handle that emerge to make it easier for the driver to climb up or out of the truck bed. One of the keys to Ford's ability to generate such massive profits in recent years despite declining sales of cars has been the trend toward premium trucks. The Super Duties are now being offered in five trim levels starting with XL and XLT, then moving up to the much premium Lariat, King Ranch, and Platinum.
The SuperDuty does everything Ford claims and it sets a few benchmarks in the process. Prices on the F-250 starts at $33,830 while King Ranch starts at $58,650 then loaded up with nearly 19K in options and the most expensive model, is the Platinum from $63,505 or in the case of the 450 Platinum from $78,520.
