Heavy-duty truck shoppers are likely searching for a model that can haul a hefty load, whether for work or play, and they probably want a pickup that is among the toughest and strongest in its class. The 2017 Ford F-250 Super Duty in Edmonton, AB is an ideal choice for drivers who desire impressive performance capabilities along with smart design qualities and advanced technology features. Let's take a closer look.
New for 2017, the Ford F-250 Super Duty is equipped with a fully boxed frame made from 95% high-strength steel that is 24 times stiffer than the previous model. It also uses aluminum body panels, which, together with the new high-strength steel frame, reduce its weight by roughly 160 kilograms. That weight has been redistributed to other areas of the truck in order to increase towing capability even more.
Available Quad-Beam Headlamps include four low beams and four high beams, which provide impressive visibility when the sun goes down and the street lights end.
With available second row full flat load floor, drivers can make room for even more cargo when space in the box and towing just isn't enough.
Available technology features include 360-degree camera, adaptive cruise control, lane departure and blind spot warnings, and SYNC 3, among others.
