2017 Ford Super Duty Eau Claire WI
When you think of a tough truck, you think of the Ford Super Duty. Though Super Duty trucks essentially began when Ford made its first work truck, the Super Duty name first came about in 1999, and it’s been impressing truck drivers ever since. Now you would be hard-pressed to find a job site or construction project that didn’t rely on a Super Duty. You need to drive this truck to believe everything that it has to offer, and you can do just that with a 2017 Ford Super Duty in Eau Claire, WI at Osseo Auto. Sure, the 2017 has some of the updates that you would expect – like SYNC 3 – but there is so much more!
For 2017, the Super Duty has changed a whole lot. This is a completely new truck, and it has a ton to offer. With the all new aluminum construction, the Super Duty has shaved some weight allowing engineers to make the truck stronger than it has ever been before while still giving it impressive fuel economy. The cab received a full update too and now shares much of its look and feel with the F-150. With trims going all the way up to the Platinum level, you can get yourself one heavy-duty luxury truck. The 2017 Ford Super Duty is going to change the face of heavy-duty trucks, and it may just set a new standard.
For conventional towing, the 2017 Ford Super Duty can muscle 21,000 pounds down the road. When it comes to 5th wheel gooseneck towing a fully outfitted Super Duty can haul 32,500 pounds, and with the new expanded fuel tanks you will be able to tow farther than ever before.
By employing aluminum throughout the construction of the latest Super Duty, Ford has made some huge weight savings, and they are putting those savings to work. Now lighter than ever and with a fully boxed frame, the Super Duty is not only more efficient but tougher too.
For those looking to run with gasoline, you can rely on a 6.2-liter V8 that generates 385 horsepower and 430 pound-feet of torque. If you are looking to kick it up a notch with diesel, then the 6.7-liter Powerstroke will give you 440 horsepower with a staggering 925 pound-feet of torque.
2017 Ford Super Duty trim levels and options
The Super Duty line is rather complex. With F-250, F-350, and F-450 each having five trim levels, things can get a little confusing as to what you can expect from each model, but we can break it down for you. For starters, know that all F-450 trucks come with the 6.7-liter V8 Powerstroke diesel engine standard, whereas the F-250 and F-350 come with the 6.2-liter V8 gasoline engine standard, however the 6.7-liter diesel is an option on those trucks regardless of trim level.
When it comes to cabs, the largest cab – known as the Crew Cab – is the only cab available on the F-450 at all trim levels. For the F-250 and F-350, the King Ranch and the Platinum trims both have the Crew Cab as standard. The Lariat has the slightly smaller Super Cab as a standard with the Crew Cab as an option, and the remaining trims have the Regular Cab as the standard with options for both the Super Cab and the Crew Cab.
The F-450 has dual rear wheels standard, and the F-350 has them as an option. If you want dual rear wheels, this rules out the F-250. The F-450 comes with an 8’ bed standard. All regular cab F-250 and F-350 models also feature an 8’ bed. If you opt for a Crew Cab or a Super Cab, then the 6 ¾’ bed comes standard. However, you can opt for the longer wheelbase variant of each cab to get the full-length 8’ bed even on the longer cabs.
F-250 and F-350 trucks are available in either 4X2 or 4X4 drivetrains, though most dealerships tend to favor the 4X4 variants. The F-450, as to be expected, is only available with a 4X4 drivetrain. The overall trim levels for the 2017 Ford Super Duty begins with the XL and continues with the XLT, Lariat, and King Ranch before topping out with the Platinum trim.
