Ford has just released an all-new Super Duty to the market, and wants to make sure Texans know all about it. With that, Ford will be holding three public events in Texas – and 18 across the country – to show potential consumers just what’s so great about their new ride. If you’re at all interested in this truck and want the ultimate walkaround and test drive, Ford’s Drive the Future of Tough event is definitely for you! The reps on hand promise to not be salesmen, but are just there to be informative.
DEARBORN, Mich., Aug. 15, 2016 – Ford, America’s truck leader, is offering consumers across the United States an opportunity to test drive the all-new 2017 Ford F-Series Super Duty – the toughest, smartest, most capable Super Duty ever.
Drive the Future of Tough, a 29-city cross-country tour that kicked off earlier this year, continues through Nov. 13. Consumers can schedule test drives at SuperDutyDrive.com, though walk-up participation also is encouraged.
The test route allows truck consumers to experience the all-new Super Duty’s best-in-class capability and its 17 class-exclusive smart new features, including adaptive steering, adaptive cruise control and Trailer Reverse Guidance. Product experts are along for the ride to explain the innovations and answer questions.
“The new Super Duty takes the heavy-duty truck segment to the next level,” says Doug Scott, Ford truck group marketing manager. “Truck customers can learn how it provides best-in-class towing and hauling, and they’ll get to experience Super Duty’s class-exclusive features from the best place possible – the driver’s seat.”
Participants can enter a sweepstakes to win an all-new 2017 F-Series Super Duty. Details are available at tour locations.
The tour includes a variety of well-equipped F-250, F-350 and F-450 models in Lariat, King Ranch and Platinum trim levels. The trucks feature a mix of the 6.2-liter V8 gasoline engine and 6.7-liter Power Stroke® turbo diesel. F-250 models are equipped with the all-new TorqShift-G transmission.
