Nothing beats Ford towing, especially with the new 2017 Super Duty lineup leading the truck segment with a whopping conventional towing capacity of 21,000 lbs. Motor Trend’s first drive of the 2017 F-250 Super Duty XL 2WD Regular Cab found that the Super Duty takes every measure to make towing as safe and easy as possible.
With the Super Duty’s necessary large size, seeing around you to make turns can be hard—so Ford installed seven cameras that tell your computer what’s around you. Two side-mirror cameras, a tailgate camera, one on the high center brake light, and two in front. The two front cameras have two duties: one goes directly to the interior camera, and one is part of the lane departure warning system.
Super Duty has unique active safety features tailored to trailering, making it the best truck on the market to buy for safe and easy towing. The Blind Spot Information System is adjustable so you can cover your trailer as well as the truck. Jackknife warning and backup guidance help with some of the most precarious parts of trailering.
With an available turbodiesel engine and standard gas V8, the Super Duty has the power and technology to do any job. You won’t find a better heavy-duty truck than the 2017 Super Duty.
