2017 Ford F-250 Review and Engine
Posted on by
We can make a mistake with the new 2017 Ford F-250 as otherwise we make a mistake with Ford’s heavy duty truck put in line with F mark. All of them has an interesting and specific design but every of them has they own differences. A new generation of F heavy duty cars has one special novelty – they actually can be used for heavy work. As some knowers said the new Ford is worth waiting because it will be “larger, more capable, smarter as well as tougher”. Let’s see if they fulfill the promise.
The outside of 2017 Ford F-250 shows the main intent of the manufacturer – to provide a futuristic car which generation after us will remember. The new LED technology is leading the outside design, especially LED rounded driving lights, quad-beam headlamps and for lamps on higher trims. The unique and recognizable grille has two parts and large logo in the middle of it. Large wheels are much bigger than on the last model and look more aggressive and prepared for off-road challenges while the boxy and blocked body shape means futuristic look. The body is made of high-strength steel which makes more rigid and tough but great for all heavy work and load. The manufacturer offers four trim levels with not many differences between them, but with interesting features customized for every special trim.
With Ford’s heavy duty trucks, things are simple. It has a lot of space inside with a lot of high-tech devices which has the only one purpose – to provide enjoyment during the long driving. Some of them are a 360-degree bird’s-eye view provided by four HD cameras, adaptive cruise control with automatic braking, in-cab tire-pressure monitoring, and lane-departure warning, Ford’s latest Sync 3 infotainment comes with an 8.0-inch screen 400-watt power outlets in the cabin, LED lighting inside and outside the vehicle, a remote tailgate release, collision warning with brake assistance and a tire pressure monitoring systems for trailers and much more. More cargo space is something which we expected in the new model, bearing in mind that Ford decided to improve their last F models.
In order to provide special driving performances, the 2017 Ford F-250 has special 6.7-liter Power Stroke V8 turbo diesel and 6.2-liter V8 both combined with six-speed automatic transmission. There will be offered and diesel 6.7-liter V8 Power Stroke diesel engine, too. The numbers of the horses in this engine are not available, but some rumors said that we can expect even 1000 pound-feet of torque in it. Top speed is around 110 and magic speed of 60 mph increases in 8 seconds.
