The 2017 Ford F-350 may not be as popular as the F-150 which is widely distributed and seen all over the country, but this pickup truck packs a punch. This pickup truck promises to get the hardest of work done while doing it in class because of its luxurious amenities. Indeed, it lives up to the heavy duty that this truck is expected to deliver.

According to Kelley Blue Book, the 2017 Ford F-350 is also considered one of the favorites, especially for country folks because of its adaptive steering feature. It makes parking lot maneuvers easy and convenient. It also provides necessary aid when the situation calls for towing. The feature offers variable steering ratio of electric steering and the essential fluid motion of hydraulic steering.

It also comes equipped with Driver Assist technology. There are seven cameras installed in this trailer! These cameras provide a complete 360-degree view of its surroundings and 180-degree for blind alleys and show objects that may be behind it. It doesn't even stop there. A tire-pressure monitoring system also is included.

The Ford F-350 interior resembles that of F-150. Buyers get the basic cabin, but it never goes without the much-needed luxury options. The King Ranch and Platinum come in yards of leather and also offers power-operated equipment that drivers desire. The redesigned exterior is ultimately attractive because of its updated grille, headlights, mirrors, doors, and fender flares

 

The most significant part of this truck is what lurks under the hood and it is not disappointing at all. The gasoline V-8 is reported to have 25 pound-feet more of torque as compared to the ones released in 2016. It is also powered with a considerably lighter and more efficient 6-speed automatic transmission.

As added by Car and Driver, the revised 6.7-liter Power Stroke of the 2017 Ford F-350 is also responsible for its amazing towing capacity. Ford reportedly updated the engine's fuel delivery setup, turbocharger, and electronic controls. All of which contribute to an insane 925 pound-feet of torque and maximum 440-horsepower. This over $8000 option is all worth it for the power needed to complete the most difficult of tasks with ease.

Ford also claims that the 2017 Ford F-350 is proud to say that it is one of the strongest pickups of its kind. The steel frame is considered 24 times stiffer than ever before. This follows the fact that it comes with a military-grade all-aluminum body which is earlier reported.
