5 reasons to buy the 2017 Ford F250

1. Massive towing capacity

The main reason people choose a super-duty truck like the 2017 Ford F250 is towing prowess. The 2017 Ford F250 doesn't disappoint. With the standard 6.2L V8 engine, the 2017 F250 can tow up to an estimated 21,000 lbs, and up to 32,500 lbs with available equipment upgrades (when properly equipped).

 Whether you're hauling a fifth wheel, construction equipment, or a horse trailer, the 2017 Ford F250 is up for the job. 

2. Towing supports 

In addition to its solid towing capacity, the 2017 Ford F250 comes with features designed to make towing easier, for old pros and people who are just getting started. The available Ultimate Trailer Tow Camera System helps you get your trailer exactly where you want it. The standard trailer hitch can receive 2.0-, 2.5-, and 3.0-inch ball mounts, so you can easily swap your trailering system as needed. 

3. Room for the whole crew

The 2017 Ford F250 is available in Regular Cab, SuperCab, or Crew Cab configurations. Each is bigger than the comparable cabs on the previous generation of the F250. The Crew Cab is the best option if you regularly utilize the back seats. With more than 40 inches of legroom, the Crew Cab is comfortable for adult riders. If your crew is more family-orientated, you'll love that it can fit rear-facing car seats with ease. 

4. Plenty of personalization

The 2017 Ford F250 comes with heaps of options that allow you to find the truck that's right for you. The choices start with the engine, with gas and diesel options. From there, available packages like the camper package, snowplow prep package, and FX4 off-road package allow you to find a truck that is fine-tuned to the jobs it will be doing most often. 

5. Creature comforts

The 2017 Ford F250 may be a workhorse, but it's also a comfortable ride. While the base trim interior is a no-frills work truck, there are plenty of available options to make your F250 more luxurious. A dual moonroof, leather seats, and tailgate step are just a few of the 2017 F250's available up-scale features.
