The 2017 Ford F-250 is a proper truck for proper work. Designed to survive anything and keep going, to tow, haul and still be drivable around town, this is a truck for all seasons. It seems I’m not the only one who likes this Ford truck if the streets of Ontario are anything to go by.
The redesign follows in the footsteps of the F-150 but keeps it workmanlike. While the smaller truck still gets the job done, more owners use it for commuting and everyday driving than working. That is testament to the comfort and driveability of the F-150. Bigger brother is following suit too.
2017 Ford F-250 design
The new look is very modern and manages to be both utilitarian and handsome. The design is very much like a larger F-150 with the Ford grille and integral lights either side, big hood, and simple panel styling throughout.
Inside, the same balance of workman and luxury is retained. The cab can be specified to be as simple and as robust as you like or as luxurious as you need. The cabin is very spacious and comfortable whichever format you go for.
Lots of storage and practical touches shows that a lot thought has gone into creating a truck for the modern age.
2017 Ford F-250 engine and mechanicals
While you certainly wouldn’t to run an F-250 to the office every day, it is more driveable and manoeuvrable than its size suggests. This three quarter ton truck can handle like the best of them. Independent front suspension, solid axle rear suspension and optional AWD means comfort and control whatever the terrain.
Engines are a gasoline V8 and a diesel V8. The 6.2-litre gas V8 generates 385 hp and 430 lb-ft of torque while the diesel delivers 440 hp and 925 lb-ft of torque. If you tow, that diesel is the one you need. Both engines use Ford’s six speed TorqShift transmission.
The number of options available with the 2017 Ford F-250 would take up several blog posts. You can specify the most basic truck or the most advanced and comfortable one possible. You can design a truck for any use, or a basic chassis upon which you add your own body or whatever you need.
The 2017 Ford F-250 is a work truck that delivers in every sense of the word. Check it out at Northway Ford Lincoln, 388 King George Road Brantford ON N3S 3N2!
