One of the more prestigious consumer awards given out to automotive manufacturers over the course of a normal year is the Motor Trend Truck of the Year award, and this year it has been earned by the 2017 Ford Super Duty. This comes as no surprise to us here at Power Ford, as we’ve been praising the 2017 Ford Super Duty ever since the first model landed on our Rio Rancho area Ford dealership lot. Its stunning blend of power, versatility, and comfort won us over from the start, and now it won over Motor Trend.
“We judge the contenders based on six categories – from design to efficiency to performance – characterizing the things consumers want most in their next vehicle. The all-new 2017 Ford Super Duty met and exceeded our criteria, truly proving it is the undisputed leader in towing, capability and power – exactly what truck customers want. Motor Trend is excited to crown this purpose-built machine this year’s Truck of the Year,” said Ed Loh, Motor Trend editor-in-chief.
This is the fifth time that a model from the Ford F-Series has been awarded with this title, and we wouldn’t be at all surprised to see this happen many more times in the future.
About the All-New 2017 Ford Super Duty
The 2017 Ford Super Duty near Rio Rancho at Power Ford is without a doubt the toughest, most intelligent, and most capable Super Duty model we’ve ever seen. Not only that, but this model is 350 lbs. lighter, and carries a frame that’s nearly 24 times stiffer than its predecessor. This is due to a redesign that uses 95 percent high-strength steel, and a body that uses a high-strength, military grade aluminum alloy. These new materials are both lighter and stronger than those used in previous year models.
When it comes time to get down to brass tacks, this model is all business. Under the hood, a 6.7-liter Power Stroke® turbo diesel V8 scares away the toughest jobs with up to 440-horsepower and a jaw-dropping 925 lb.-ft of torque. There’s no job too big for the 2017 Ford Super Duty.
