2017 Ford Super Duty in Wiscasset

The 2017 Ford Super Duty is a powerful towing machine. The new Super Duty trucks are manufactured to meet the needs of even the pickiest drivers. The Super Duty sets benchmarks for heavy-duty towing and payload capacities. The huge variety of ready-to-tow features means that the 2017 Ford Super Duty is a towing powerhouse. The strong 6.7L Power Stroke® V8 Turbo Diesel engine pairs up with the TorqShift-G and TorqShift 6-speed automatic transmissions. SelectShift includes progressive range select, tow/haul mode, and manual mode. There is a driver-selectable engine exhaust brake feature with a new automatic setting. Hill start assist and trailer sway control work together to grant you total control of your 2017 Super Duty. You can rely on the trailer tire pressure monitoring system to keep you aware of when your tires need inflating. 2017 Ford Super Duty in Wiscasset

The Super Duty brings you a fantastic trailer tow camera system that incorporates a class-exclusive customer-placed trailer camera. The Tow Tech Bundle is available on the Lariat and King Ranch Super Duty but comes as a standard feature on the Platinum version of this vehicle. Six enhanced upfitter switches in addition to a trailer brake controller allow you complete control over your trailer.

Make hooking that trailer up to your 2017 Super Duty easier than ever with dynamic hitch assist and smart trailer tow connector. Choose from a wide selection of trailer tow packages, such as the 5th-Wheel/Gooseneck Hitch Prep Package (53W), which gives you the needed under-box hardware, which allows the driver to have the opportunity to install certain 5th-Wheel or Gooseneck Hitch Kits within the box. The prep package gives you a flat cargo box floor when any of the 5th-Wheel or Gooseneck Hitch Kits are not being used. 2017 Ford Super Duty in Wiscasset

Traction is your truck’s ability to keep the tires and the road connected. Most vehicles today operate without the use of an electronic traction control system. Many vehicles come with standard non-limited-slip or open differential equipment. The 2017 F-Series comes outfitted with limited-slip differentials. Unlike open differentials, this feature manages torque between the sides of the drive axle. When a wheel starts to slip; clutches, gears or other friction components inside of the differential engage and start to transfer the torque from the slipping wheel to the non-slipping wheel. If you are looking for towing in Wiscasset, then know that a 2017 Super Duty from Wiscasset Ford is the best option for you.
