2017 Ford Superduty F-250 Review

If you're looking for a pickup truck that can haul heavy loads, make space for the whole family, and offer engines with immense power, the 2017 Ford F-250 Superduty is the way to go. Its upgraded interior, better handling and ride, and many other improvements make it a great choice for drivers in the Streator, Dwight, and Morris areas.

Read on to learn more in this 2017 Ford Superduty F-250 review put together by our team at DeLong Ford Inc., and you'll get the inside scoop of your next heavy-duty pickup truck.

A Brief Ford Superduty F-250 Overview

 It's rare that a new model comes onto the market and sets the standard for the category. However, the 2017 Ford Superduty F-250 does that, and much more. Improvements range from stouter underpinnings and increased engine power to more spacious interiors that can be fitted with a variety of technology and convenience features.

Because these trucks are built for heavy hauling, the engineers at Ford gave this year's Superduty F-250 larger crossmembers and frame rails. With its new aluminum body, this year's model is lighter and more dent-resistant than previous models.

Features & Trim Levels

The 2017 Superduty F-250 is a heavy-duty, full-size pickup that's available in multiple trim levels: XL, Lariat, XLT, Platinum, and King Ranch®. It's offered in regular, extended, and crew cab configurations, and drivers can choose either a 6.75-foot or 8-foot bed length.

Base models come with 17-inch steel wheels, black bumpers and grilles, auto headlights, telescoping towing mirrors, a 2.5-inch hitch receiver, and many other features. With a step up to a higher trim level, the Superduty's usefulness and comfort improve significantly.

Ford Superduty F-250 Power & Performance

 This Ford F-250 review wouldn't be complete without a brief discussion of the truck model's fuel economy and performance. The Superduty comes standard with a gasoline-powered 6.2L V8 that's been slightly tweaked to provide 385 horsepower (hp) and 430 lb-ft of torque. An available option is the 6.7L turbo diesel that puts out a stout 440 hp and 925 lb-ft of torque.

If you're looking for a truck that can pull a thing or two around, you can stop at the F-250. When properly equipped, this powerhouse can tow up to 18,000 pounds-so, bring along the boat or the trailer to your next family vacation with ease.

Ford Superduty F-250 Safety

Staying safe is important in your pickup truck, especially if you're doubling it as a family vehicle. Fortunately, you can't go wrong with all of the safety features the F-250 has to offer.

Standard safety features include anti-lock brakes, traction and stability controls, trailer sway protection, and hill start assistance. Side curtain airbags are also standard, and inflatable rear belts are available on crew cab models. Ford's crash alert system is standard equipment, as is the MyKey® system that allows truck owners to set limits for younger drivers.
