2017 Ford Super Duty Release Date and Specs

Ford’s Super Duty pickup trucks are already some of the greatest pickups currently on the market but things are about to get better with the 2017 Super Duty.

We can expect the 2017 Super Duty to make its appearance at Ford dealerships in late 2016, and there has been no word yet on price of the 2017 Super Duty lineup.  Much like the 2017 Ford Escape and 2017 Ford Fusion, the 2017 Super Duty saw a lot of improvement and changes over the 2016 model year.  (more…)

2017 Ford Fusion’s Available Driver Assist Features
