The changes from one year to the next isn’t always the most exciting thing, but Ford has made huge changes with the all-new 2017 model of the Ford F-250. The most prevalent difference is the switch to a new high-strength, military grade, aluminum alloy for the body, instead of steel. This has cut around 350 pounds from the weight of the F-250, allowing your engine to invest more power into the task at hand. Another side benefit to the aluminum body is that it can’t rust!
The biggest selling point of the Ford F-250 Super Duty is its work capabilities. Thankfully the 2017 F-250 boasts some impressive specs. You’ll be able to choose between two powerful engines in the 2017 F-250 -- a 6.2L V8 gas engine and a 6.7L Power Stroke V8 turbo diesel. Each of these engines puts up both high towing numbers and payload ratings.
The gas engine can tow up to 15,000 pounds through conventional towing or 15,700 pounds with the fifth wheel gooseneck towing method. The diesel engine offers a bit more in this department, with an 18,000 pound towing rating when properly equipped, which can be increased to 18,600 pounds with fifth wheel towing. Your payload capacity will depend on many different factors, but the 2017 F-250 can get up to a 4,200 pound rating.
