Very clean super duty

Very well maintained 2016. Very comfortable. The bronze fire is one of our favorite colors. This truck came with the factor gooseneck hitch and has the air assist in the suspension, spry in bed liner and all the comfort in the cab. Very spacious compared to the 2014’s.

2017 Ford F-250 Overview


The 2017 Ford F-250 is a heavy-duty, full-size pickup truck with numerous configurations. This year, it has been redesigned. It competes with the Chevrolet Silverado 2500HD, GMC Sierra 2500, and RAM 2500. The F-350 and F-450 Super Duty are also available.

Once again, it is offered with three cab sizes and two box lengths: 6.75-foot and 8-foot.

Five trims are available for the F-250: the XL, XLT, Lariat, King Ranch, and Platinum.

The redesigned F-250 has an imposing physical presence with its big blockish forms. It is built on a new fully-boxed, high-strength steel frame that is 24 times more rigid than its predecessor. Surprisingly, it also weighs nearly 350 pounds lighter due to its new dent-resistant, aluminum alloy body. The XLT and higher trim levels come with chrome bumpers and a chrome grille, which give it a more premium look. Standard features include tailgate dampeners and tie-down hooks. Available features include power/heated side mirrors with turn-signal indicators, skid plates, LED headlights, and a trailering equipment.

Under the hood, the F-250 is powered by a standard 385-hp, 6.2-liter V-8 that makes 430 pounds-feet of torque. A more powerful 440-hp, turbo-diesel 6.7-liter V-8 is available, and it outputs an impressive 925 pounds-feet of torque. Both engines come mated to a six-speed automatic transmission; rear-wheel drive is standard, with four-wheel drive optional. Maximum towing capacity is 21,000 pounds, increasing to 27,500 pounds with a fifth-wheel gooseneck tow hitch.

Inside, the cabin comes with a variety of seating options, offering a front-row bench or bucket seats, and several different rear seats depending on cab size. Super Cab and Crew Cab models have a rear flat-load floor for cargo loading convenience. Air conditioning and a tilt/telescoping steering wheel come standard, while most other features are optional which keeps the price of the F-250 low. Leather upholstery, power/heated front seats, ventilated front seats, heated rear seats, navigation, Ford’s SYNC 3 multimedia system with voice command, and power-adjustable pedals are optional.

The F-250 has a multitude of available safety options. Camera options include a single tailgate camera, a full surround-view camera system, a new Trailer Reverse Guidance System, a customer-placed rear trailer camera, and a new center high-mount stop lamp camera, which is useful for hooking up a 5th wheel or gooseneck hitch. The available Adaptive Steering System adjusts the steering ratio in response to vehicle speed. At low speeds, the steering ratio increases and requires less steering effort. At higher speeds, the steering ratio decreases for a more controlled feel. Other available features include a blindspot monitoring system with rear cross-traffic alert, lane departure warning, adaptive cruise control, pre-collision warning, and emergency braking. Airbags, anti-lock brakes, and an electronic stability system come standard.
