Ford’s New Super Duty 0

Fords-New-Super-DutyFord’s F Series have been an important part of the company’s history. First manufactured in 1948, the series has gone on to be Ford’s bestselling vehicles since 1981 and the best selling pickup truck in the United States since 1977. Considering that the pickup truck is extremely popular in the United States, it is a testament to Ford that they have managed to keep this series of vehicle selling so well.

With some information released on the vehicle, we know that the 2017 Super Duty will be a top seller amongst pickup truck owners across the States. With an abundance of technologies and a 6.7 litre Power Stroke diesel engine utilising adaptive cruise control and engine brake assist, the Super Duty will be able to tow up to 31,500lbs. This is an absolutely astronomical figure for Fords new vehicle.

But, this is only one of many highlights, as the vehicle will also come with 17 different driver assisting technologies. This will therefore make the new Ford the most technologically advanced pickup ever. These new features will include; adaptive steering, blind spot information system with trailer coverage, BoxLink tech, factory-installed customer-placed trailer camera, inflatable rear outboard safety belts, multicontour front seats with Active Motion, power-deployable running boards, PowerScope power-telescoping and power-folding trailer tow mirrors, remote tailgate release with power lock, standard flat load floor on SuperCab and Crew Cab, stowable loading ramps, SYNC 3, tailgate step, trailer reverse guidance, trailer tire pressure monitoring system and utility lighting system. To be honest we don’t even know what half of these technological features mean, but they must be impressive as Ford’s shares rose as soon as this information was released.

Ford’s Brian Rathsburg said that ‘the all-new Super Duty is the toughest, most capable Super Duty ever. With a host of driver-assist technologies, it is also the smartest Super Duty ever.’ This vehicle sounds extremely impressive; we can’t wait to see the public’s reaction.
