DEARBORN, Mich. – Ford, America’s truck leader, is offering consumers across the United States an opportunity to test drive the all-new 2017 Ford F-Series Super Duty – the toughest, smartest, most capable Super Duty ever.
Ford highlighting a new entry-level truck option with its new STX Appearance Package, which will be available for 2017 F-150 and Super Duty trucks. Ford says the STX Appearance Package builds on the success of the previous generation F-150 STX, but it will be the first time a Super Duty will be offered with an STX package.
It has long been the stereotype that pickup trucks are built for the tough types, the kind of people who can prepare the fields and plant the crops but aren’t clever enough to market them in the store with a catchy tagline.
It is no coincidence that these stereotypes exist, considering for many years trucks were simply measured by their toughness. How clever and intuitive its systems operated were of no concern, as long as the rig could do the job whenever it was called upon.
Ford unveiled the payload and towing capability of its new F Series heavy-duty Super Duty trucks, claiming the “most towing and hauling capability and the most horsepower and torque of any heavy-duty pickup truck,” which includes a whopping 925 lb.-ft. of torque and 32,500 pounds of max towing capacity.
Ford today released a video and accompanying press release regarding new driver-assist technologies found in its all-new 2017 Ford F-Series Super Duty truck. Ford says there are three new class-exclusive features (meaning, the first time they are found on a heavy-duty truck) found on the new Super Duty, including Adaptive cruise control, adaptive steering, and Blind Spot Information System with trailer coverage.
