2017 Ford F 250 Redesign and changes

First up, Ford have enlarged the fuel tank which should give extended range, a useful upgrade that many manufacturers don’t consider. Coupled with this is a significant weight reduction thanks to the aluminum body, Ford say the weight has been reduced by up to 350 lbs, although of course, some of that will be offset by the larger fuel tank (when fully fuelled).

2017 Ford F 250 Specs

As standard, the F250 comes with a 6.2 liter 385 BHP 430 ft/lb V8 gasoline engine, but for a further $8,595, you can have the turbo diesel V8; 6.7 liter and an absolutely gargantuan 925 lb/ft of torque – that’s enough torque to change the axis of the world!

Power is sent to the rear wheels as standard through a 6-speed auto transmission, but again, that can be upgraded to all four wheels.
Body styles are SuperCab or Crew Cab and there are choices for bed length also; either 6.75 ft or 8.0 ft.

Sync3 infotainment is a further option, it comes with a high def screen and navigation, but you’ll need to stump up a further $2,000.

2017 Ford F 250 Interior

Inside the cabin, Ford have done an excellent job with the trim, even more so on the Platinum model. You’ll never feel like you’re inside the cabin of a European luxury sedan, but the leather is high quality and the sound proofing is abundant; the overall ride quality and NVH is excellent for such a vehicle, perhaps class leading.
