Motor Trend recently awarded the Ford Super Duty Trucks with 2017 Truck of the Year. This is a very well established and sought after award with much in the way of attached prestige, according to most anyone you ask in the industry. We have been breaking apart the ins and outs of how a particular car, SUV, or in this case, truck, can qualify for such honors and we have determined several categories within which they must highly succeed and impress the judges. Your Ford Dealership in Collinsville near Swansea wanted to pass along some of the details uncovered here and so we look at the competition end of things next up.
“We had the luxury in this test of having the Super Duty’s most direct competitor on hand, and it proved instructive. The Super Duties accelerated more quickly and smoothly than their Ram Heavy Duty rivals, braked comparably well, and handled better both on the skidpad and the figure eight. Towing at near max capability, the F-350 was quicker and smoother than the Ram 3500 and felt less burdened. In a trailering slalom test, the F-350 was able to carry considerably more speed than the Ram 3500 and experienced less body roll, increasing driver confidence. The same held true when comparing the gas-powered F-250 to the equivalent Ram 2500.”
So, as it seems, and according to the previous paragraph directly from Motor Trend and right out of our research done on behalf of your Ford Dealership near Swansea IL, if you beat out the top of the line competition, then your chances of success are rather high. Then, add to this competitive edge, the fact that these trucks have efficiency well on their side due to the aluminum bodies added to many of the super duty trucks in the lineup shortly after proving itself on the Ford F150 trucks, then you really do have an obvious winner at Ford Dealers everywhere.
