What New Features are in the 2017 Ford Super Duty?
Back in the day, a truck simply had to be rugged and dependable. It had to be able to tow and haul what you needed to tow and haul, and everything else was just icing on the cake. That’s not the case anymore. These days, those who depend on their trucks day in and day out want more than just rugged dependability. They want advanced new safety, technology and entertainment features. They want to be able to enjoy the same high-tech features everyone else gets to enjoy.
