Truck of TexasWell, the 2017 Ford F-Series Super Duty has done it again! It’s earned yet another award! This time, the 2017 Ford F-Series Super Duty has been named the Truck of Texas by the Texas Auto Writers Association’s 2016 Texas Truck Rodeo!



Truck of TexasDistinguished Award

The Truck of Texas award was given at the 23rd annual competition. This is the 13th time this awesome award has been won by Ford F-Series trucks. It’s previous wins include the 1993, 1997, 1999, 2003-2008, 2009, 2011, 2014 and 2016 awards.

It’s no wonder the 2017 F-Series Super Duty has earned this award! The truck features all-new and segment-exclusive smart technology. These new features help increase customer productivity and comfort. They are also super convenience. Underneath the shiny exterior, the all-new fully-boxed frame is the backbone of the truck. This frame is made of more than 95% high-strength steel. It’s up to 24 time stiffer than the previous frame. It enables best-in-class towing and hauling capability. Super Duty also features heavier-duty four-wheel-drive components, drive-line and axles. Oh, can’t forget the towing hardware.

Truck of TexasA Huge Honor

“We are honored to win the ‘Truck of Texas’ award as it underscores how the all-new 2017 Ford Super Duty lineup are the toughest, smartest and most capable trucks we’ve ever built,” said Doug Scott, Ford Truck Group Marketing Manager. “This prestigious award from the Texas Auto Writers Association further solidifies Ford’s truck leadership in Texas, where F-series continues to be the best-selling truck and builds on our momentum as the top-selling truck in the United States for 39 consecutive years.”

Also, for the very first time, the Super Duty body uses high-strength, military grade, aluminum alloy. This makes the Super Duty body more dent and ding resistant. It’s even better than the previous steel body. It’s also not subject to red rust corrosion!  Together, high-strength steel and high-strength aluminum alloy help reduce weight. It’s been reduced by up to 350 pounds. Ford engineers reinvested that weight savings everywhere it counts. This is in order to give customers more towing and hauling capability than ever before.

Truck of TexasIts Mission

With towing central to the Super Duty mission, an all-new advanced coaching and camera technology makes conventional as well as goose-neck and fifth-wheel towing easier and more efficient than ever.
