The Boss: Ford’s Super Duty F-250 is tough, and a comfortable ride.

By Carguy Keith Turner

As a longtime Ford truck owner and amateur mechanic, my son Lawren took a close look at the 2017 Ford F-250 Super Duty and found many things that impressed him. Like the chrome grill work that looks heavy, but is actually made of lightweight, high-strength aluminum.

The lighter body combines with a 6.7-Liter V8 Turbo Diesel gave the truck plenty of throw-back-into-your seat power.

Lawren also liked the kid-friendly Tough Bed® spray-in bedliner and handy tailgate stair case that folds away when not in use.

The huge cab is quite comfortable with lots of leather-appointed storage space, including a hidden toolbox that we discovered under the back seats.

The bird’s-eye view, front and back-up cameras make it easy to maneuver and park the F-250 in and out of tight spaces.

Perfect for contractors, the F-250 is what Lawren calls the “the bosses’ truck” because it’s so clean and luxurious. You won’t get your hands dirty driving this rig.

Towing capacity is 11,400 pounds and the two camera towing system makes it easy to hook up to your boat or trailer and hit the road.

Lawren said that after driving that 2017 F-250 he can clearly see that Ford’s engineers listened to feedback from current truck owners to improve their Ford truck experience.

Mission accomplished!
