2017 Ford Super Duty Preview in Gurnee, IL

The staff here at Gillespie Ford is excited to bring you the 2017 Ford Super Duty preview in Gurnee, IL. The Super Duty lineup is designed for anyone who seeks a do-it-all pickup that also provides many clever and innovative features. While the capability is substantial for heavy duty jobs, the handling and driving dynamics for day-to-day commuting is well-mannered.

2017 Ford Super Duty Features

Features-wise, both the F-250 and F-350 Super Duty are similar, and five trims will be offered. Many of the familiar comfort and convenience items will be included, such as the popular XLT’s integrated trailer brake controller, the Ford SYNC voice command system, Bluetooth phone and audio connectivity, and a 4-speaker sound system with a CD player, satellite radio, an auxiliary audio jack and a USB/iPod interface. This 2017 Ford Super Duty preview in Gurnee, IL, also reveals that upper trims, such as the Lariat, will come with advanced features like a 4.2-inch color trip computer, wood-tone interior trim, an auto-dimming rearview mirror, and the MyFord Touch infotainment system with an 8-inch touchscreen, upgraded SYNC functionality, and an 8-speaker audio system.

Refreshed 2017 Ford Super Duty in Gurnee, IL

Every version of the new Super Duty is longer for 2017, and the well-appointed interiors all come with a refresh. For starters, the auxiliary switches are incorporated into the overhead console, and the all-important trailer-brake controller has been repositioned closer to the driver. Adaptive steering will help improve the towing experience, and our 2017 Ford Super Duty preview shows that when in low-speed trailer maneuvering situations, the Super Duty models increase steering sensitivity. However, once you’re on the road at traditional speeds, the sensitivity is decreased for safer handling. Among the optional features that look to be available are adaptive cruise control, an improved tire pressure monitoring system and lane-departure warning. The SYNC system is in its third generation (SYNC 3) and it provides many upgrades over years past. Ask your friendly salesperson for details. All models will offer a tailgate lock, which is accessible via the key fob. In short, this enables you to open the tailgate from a distance as it drops slowly. You can also lock the tailgate with the same feature.
