For those who spend their days running from jobsite to jobsite, towing supplies and gear is a daily challenge. Luckily, the 2017 Ford F-250 Super Duty is well-equipped to make the ponderous task of towing heavy loads significantly simpler. With a maximum tow rating of 18,600 pounds and available utility features like the Trailer Reverse Guidance system, Adaptive Steering system, BLIS® Blind Spot Information System with Trailer Coverage and Cross-Traffic Alert, and Trailer Sway Control, the 2017 Ford Super Duty makes it easy for anyone to tow like a pro. By comparison, the 2017 GMC Sierra 2500HD only manages to tow up to 18,100 pounds when properly equipped, and it lacks comparable technologies to match the sophistication the Ford Super Duty offers.
There’s no denying that with large full-size trucks, visibility is a constant concern. Fortunately, Ford has made it all too easy to be aware of the 2017 Ford Super Duty’s surroundings thanks to its available array of seven cameras placed intuitively around the vehicle’s exterior. With these cameras in place, the drivers can enjoy simply unparalleled 360 degree visibility around their vehicle, and even get a 180 degree view from the front end which should prove endlessly useful for pulling out from blind corners. The 2017 GMC Sierra 2500HD also comes with camera, but lacks the comprehensive 360 degree visibility that the properly equipped 2017 Ford Super Duty boasts, making it less capable overall.
