2017 Ford Super Duty Features

For the most part, the new Super Duty will come with features that are familiar to its buyers. For example, the XL base trim—the first of five—looks to include manual-telescoping trailer-towing mirrors, a locking tailgate, air conditioning, vinyl upholstery and floor coverings, a 40/20/40-split front bench seat, a tilt/telescoping steering wheel, and a 2-speaker sound system with an AM/FM radio. The locking tailgate mentioned in this 2017 Ford Super Duty preview near Libertyville, IL, also comes with a new remote key fob-based feature that allows you to press a button to slowly lower the tailgate. XLT trims get the updated the Ford SYNC 3 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.

Engines of the 2017 Ford Super Duty near Libertyville, IL

The standard lineup of engines returns in the 2016 Super Duty, as you have a choice between a 6.2L V8 or a 6.7L turbodiesel. Output is rated at 385 horsepower and 405 lb.-ft. of torque for the gas variant, while the V8 diesel generates 440 horsepower and a staggering 860 lb.-ft. of torque. However, Ford is rolling out a new gas-powered engine for this model year: a 6.8L V10. Ask our friendly sales professionals about gas mileage and towing/hauling estimates, all of which are exceptional. Of note in our 2017 Ford Super Duty preview is that specific output figures for the V10 have yet to be released. While the Super Duty frame and body have always been strong, this year sees a good many improvements, starting with the switch to aluminum for the body. This helps to shed weight to increase efficiency and power. The frame is still steel, but it is stronger than in years past.

We at Gillespie Ford are proud to serve the greater metro areas of Antioch, Barrington, Melrose Park, East Dundee, and Wauconda, and we look forward to the arrival of the new Super Duty. We encourage you to contact us with any questions you may have and the forthcoming release date information.
