When Motor Trend chooses any of their “Of the Year” awards, they don’t take it lightly. It’s not just about a couple of judges picking their favorite vehicle. It’s about scrutinizing each entry with tests of engineering, strength, safety and value. So while it’s no wonder that the 2017 Super Duty truck is the Motor Trend Truck of the Year, it’s no simple victory either.
Part of what makes the 2017 Ford Super Duty stand out among its competitors is a combination of strength and smart features. The Ford Super Duty is made to be used for expert towing. Its towing power alone earned it some extra points. While the Ford F-350 stands out as the biggest and baddest, the F-250 is no modest contender, either. It offers up 430 lb-ft of torque, a 2,930 payload capacity and a 12,500 towing capacity.
The F-250 Super Duty truck was ranked high on the Motor Trend list not only for its power, but for its efficiency and its safety. The latter impressed the judges, thanks to an array of features like collision warning and trailer sway control. From top to bottom, inside and out, the 2017 Super Duty earned its Motor Trend Truck of the Year award.
