Towing Power of the 2017 Ford Super Duty

Super Duty Towing

One of the best towing machines on the market today is the 2017 Ford Super Duty. These new Super Duty models are built from the ground up to satisfy the needs of even the pickiest drivers. The Super Duty truly sets the bar when it comes to payload capacities and heavy-duty towing. Possessing a wide array of ready-to-tow features, this Super Duty is an absolute powerhouse in the towing department. Under the hood of the 2017 Super Duty is the powerful 6.7L Power Stroke® V8 Turbo Diesel engine that is teamed up with TorqShift-G and TorqShift 6-speed automatic transmissions. Utilize SelectShift for the progressive range select feature, as you are able to choose between tow/haul and manual mode. Check out the new automatic setting on the driver-selectable engine exhaust brake feature. Trailer sway control and hill start assist work in cohesion to allow you complete control of your 2017 Ford Super Duty. You can count on the trailer tire pressure monitoring system to keep you posted on when your tires need to be inflated. Super Duty Towing

The 2017 Super Duty comes with a high-tech trailer tow camera system that includes a class-exclusive customer-placed trailer camera. The Lariat and King Ranch Super Duty models both come with an available Tow Tech Bundle that comes standard for the Platinum version of this model. The trailer brake controller and six enhanced upfitter switches let you have total control over your trailer.

Make hooking up your trailer to your 2017 Ford Super Duty easier than ever before by utilizing the smart trailer tow connector and dynamic hitch assist. Pick from a huge selection of trailer tow packages such as the 5th-Wheel/Gooseneck Hitch Prep Package (53W), which brings you the needed under-box hardware, allowing the operator to be able to install certain Gooseneck or 5th-Wheel Hitch Kits within the box. This prep package gives you a flat cargo box floor when any of the Gooseneck or 5th-Wheel hitch kits aren’t being used. Super Duty Towing

Traction is a truck’s ability to keep its tires connected to the road beneath them. Most vehicles today function without using an electronic traction control system. Most vehicles available today come standard with open differential equipment or non-limited-slip. The 2017 Super Duty comes equipped with limited-slip differentials. Unlike open differentials, this feature manages torque between the two sides of the drive axle. When a wheel begins to slip; clutches, gears or other friction components inside of the differential engage and begin to move the torque from the slipping wheel to the non-slipping wheel. If you are seeking out a great vehicle for towing in Portsmouth, then remember that a 2017 Super Duty from Portsmouth Ford is a great option for you.
