The 2017 Ford F250 Super Duty is quite simply the best truck on the market and one of the most capable trucks Ford has ever manufactured. In one of the most competitive automotive segments, this newly redesigned Super Duty pickup truck ensures the only battle in the full-size pickup market will be for second place.
Is The 2017 Ford Super Duty the Best Truck On The Market?Well, according to Ford and their recent ad campaigns, their trucks are the best because they have always been the best and they have been the number one seller for over 38 years. Although we believe the conclusion is sound, this tautological reasoning and advertising is not very helpful.
So let's take a look at the evidence that supports the claim that the 2017 Super Duty is the best truck on the market.
The First Ford Super Duty Redesign In 18 YearsAlthough the Ford Super Duty has gone through multiple refreshes and updates, the 2017 Ford Super Duty is actually the first all-new Super Duty in 18 years.
The new Super Duty has received a refreshed front-end with a new grille, new accents along the body, as well as a new rear end, and new headlights.

For the first time in history, the cab of the new Ford Super Duty is shared with its cousin, the F-150. That is great news because this shared platform allows Ford to cut back on manufacturing costs and improve the technology in the new Super Duty.
Class Exclusive Technology That Separates The 2017 Super Duty From The Pack
The new Super Duty has the connected feel of an F-150 with technology such as the new SYNC 3 system, Apple CarPlay and Android Auto. It also comes equipped with lane keep assist, a beautiful twin panel moonroof, power running boards, automatic high beam low beam, blind spot info., rain sensing wipers and much more technology that was never available in the Super Duty.
The 2017 Ford F250 Super Duty Has Best In Class Power & Towing CapacityThe new 2017 Ford Super Duty comes equipped with 2 different powertrain options, both of which are incredibly capable.
A 6.2L V8 gasoline engine that produces 385 horsepower and 340lb-ft of torque and a 6.7L V8 turbo diesel that produces 440 horsepower and 925lb-ft of torque. Good enough to earn Best In Class honors.
Both engines are paired with a TorquShift 6 speed automatic transmission and deliver improved fuel economy from the previous generation.
How Much Can the New 2017 Ford Super Duty Tow and Haul?The new Ford Super Duty is far and away the most capable, hardworking truck Ford has produced to date. The superior powertrain has earned it 2017 Motor Trend Truck of the Year as well as several Best-In-Class honors in categories that actually matter - such as towing and payload capacity.
The new Super Duty's maximum gooseneck towing is over 1,290 pounds more than the nearest competitor, its max. 5th wheel towing is 2,500 pounds better than the next closest competitor, and the new F-250 and F-350 both have class-leading towing capacity.
So how did the engineers at Ford manage to outpace the competition by such a significant distance?
It all starts with the new high-strength, military grade aluminum alloy body that has been combined with high-strength steel to shed a significant 350lbs from the frame. The engineers then took that weight savings and reinvested it in more robust components to drastically improve towing and hauling capability.
Upgraded suspension hardware, axles, and larger ring gear, housing and bearings provide for increased load capacity. And, the numbers are simply astounding.
The new Ford Super Duty has a maximum towing capacity of 21,000lbs which is good enough for best in class honors. With a gooseneck, the maximum towing capacity of the Ford Super Duty increases to a 32,000 pound rating when equipped with diesel and dual rear wheels.
Of course, the astronomical figures are for the larger trucks. But the F-250 and F-350 have a maximum towing capacity of 18,000lbs, good enough for Best in Class in their own right!
How Does The New 2017 Ford Super Duty Feel Behind The Wheel?
All of those numbers and accolades are impressive but they truly ring hollow if the truck does not have a good road feel and handle well.
The good news is that the new Ford Super Duty handles even more smoothly that its predecessor.
The chassis is much more solid with heavier loads and the steering and braking is much more responsive. That gives the new Super Duty a road feel that is akin to the F-150 which is really nice, especially for driving longer distances.
In addition, the new adaptive steering feature automatically adjusts the steering ratio in response to the driving speed. So, whether you are parking, driving through a construction site or on the highway the ratio adjusts making steering easier and the truck more maneuverable that without.
The new Super Duty is the only vehicle in its class to have this feature.
New Camera Systems Make Trailering A Breeze
The New Super Duties come with 7 available cameras. There is a front camera, rear camera, 2 side mirrors and a camera in the rear view camera, a trailer mounted camera in the rear, and one in the third brake light of the vehicle.
