2017 Ford F-250

 

It's pretty much accepted that new truck generations don't come around as regularly as new generations of cars and crossovers do, but even by truck standards, having to wait since 1999 for an all-new F-250 is a long time. So, was it worth waiting so long for the all-new 2017 Ford F-250? Well, if you want an extremely strong pick-up truck with best in-class towing capacity and plenty more besides, here's what you can expect from this new take on the F-250.

Exterior

It's probably fair to say the macho look has been dialed down a bit this time, but only by a little. The grille's twin horizontal "power bars" are now closer together than they used to be, and they're now bookended by Ford's C-shaped headlights rather than being surrounded by chrome. There's also an unapologetically bold "Super Duty" logo stamped into the hood, which would probably leave an attractive imprint in the brick walls the new F-250 looks as though it could drive clean through. The new Super Duty is still instantly identifiable as an F-Series; just a lot more modern one than its predecessor.

Engines

Unlike the F-150 with its incredible array of options, the F-250 keeps things altogether more simple and straightforward with just two clearly defined powerplant options; one gas and one diesel. The standard unit is a 6.2-liter gas V-8 producing an impressive 385 horsepower and 430 lb.-ft. of torque, which comes mated to a TorqShift-G six-speed SelectShift automatic transmission with Tow/Haul Mode. If that's not enough power for your particular requirements, the 6.7-liter PowerStroke V-8 turbodiesel certainly won't leave you wanting with its 440 horsepower and simply staggering 950 lb.-ft. of torque.

Trims

You have five different trim options to choose between with the new F-250, which start with the workmanlike XL and then go upwards through XLT, Lariat, King Ranch and Platinum models. Unlike the F-150 where most buyers will look beyond the entry trim, the XL will probably be the biggest-selling F-150 as Super Duty models tend to attract a greater proportion of commercial buyers than the light-duty F-150. The XL is therefore a fairly utilitarian specification, although it does get essentials such as air conditioning. Standard equipment levels increase considerably from the XLT onwards, and the Platinum really is something pretty special.

Capabilities

You have a choice of Regular Cab, SuperCab and Crew Cab versions of the F-250, and there are 6.75-foot and 8-foot beds. Depending on the configuration you choose to go for, the 2017 Ford F-250 can deliver a maximum towing capacity of 18,600 pounds and a maximum payload of up to 4,200 pounds.

What really sets the all-new 2017 Ford F-250 Super Duty from the crowd and makes a significant contribution to its incredible capability, is the fact it's the first and only vehicle in its class to have a body made from high-strength, military-grade, aluminum alloys. To cope with the increased loading requirements and enhanced capability demanded of a heavy-duty truck, the cargo box has been totally re-engineered and its panel thickness has been upgraded. This also means it doesn't rust, it's more dent- and ding-resistant, and it's quite simply the toughest body the F-250 has ever had.
