2017 Ford F-250 Review
If you’re looking for optimum power, state-of-the-art technology, and a safe way to get to and from your jobs, look no further than the 2017 Ford F-250. Drivers in Lewistown, State College, Bellefonte, and Port Matilda will find the F-250 to be way more than just your dad’s old pickup truck.
Our team at The Lake Dealerships has picked out all of the important highlights so you can get to know this smooth ride a little better.
To start, let’s check out how the F-250 will power you from job to job…
Power & Performance in the F-250
The 2017 Ford F-250 outshines its own reputation in power and performance. With a standard 6.2L V8 engine, this powerhouse gains 385 horsepower and 430 lb-ft of torque.
For even more outstanding performance, opt for the 6.7L turbodiesel V8. Gaining 440 horsepower and 925 lb-ft of torque, there’s nothing this engine can’t handle.
What’s even more noteworthy in regard to the power of the F-250 is its towing capacity. When properly equipped, the F-250 can tow up to 18,000 pounds. You can always rely on the F-250 for pulling trailers or equipment for job sites.
A Truck Ahead of its (Technological) Time
With the world running on technology, you’ll need a truck that’s kept up over the years, and the 2017 Ford F-250 does not waiver in its pursuit to impress in the technology department.
With features such as available camera/monitor systems, including a 360-degree bird’s eye view camera system and an available Trailer Reverse Guidance, you’ll never be in the dark while driving the F-250.
Voice activation through SYNC®3 technology is also a feature offered in the F-250. You can control your music, navigate to new places, and utilize your smartphone apps without taking your eyes off the road or your hands off the wheel.
Staying Safe in the Ford F-250
Even the toughest jobs need a safety net. The 2017 Ford F-250 is equipped with standard safety features so you can focus on the task at hand and let the F-250 do the rest.
With features such as Blind-Spot Monitoring and Lane Departure Warning, you’ll feel like you have your own personal driving assistant. Trailer tire-pressure monitoring is available as well, so you’ll never be surprised with a flat while on the road.
Since you can never learn to drive a truck too early, Ford’s MyKey feature is also available for the novice driver. MyKey allows you to control features of your vehicle, such as speed and radio volume limit, and seatbelt alerts.
