The 2017 Ford F-250 is a super duty pickup truck. This 13th generation vehicle will in all probability be totally different to its predecessor. The new 2017 Ford F-250 is going to undergo some revolutionary changes to its design. However, Ford is not going to make any changes as far as use of aluminum as its base material for the vehicle goes. Since the F-150 proved to be a big hit there is no reason why Ford should make any radical changes to its new F-250. It will also continue to construct the body from aluminum.
2017 Ford F-250: Redesign Exterior and Interior
The new 2017 Ford F-250 Super Duty pickup truck from Ford will probably hit the markets in the fourth quarter of 2015. According to some reports, Ford will probably display its new Ford F-250 at the New York Auto Show. However, the company has not officially confirmed this as yet.
The F-250 did not have the best experience when taken out on a test drive in Death Valley. After this test, Ford stopped issuing any information about the F-250. However, recently the vehicle was once again seen on the roads and this in turn has resulted in a deluge of stories about the vehicle. The thing that strikes you about the new F-250 is that its design will not be changed from that of the larger sized variants. In other words, the design of the F-250, F-350 and F-450 models will more or less be identical.
The only changes made to the design of the 2017 Ford F-250 will be to the front fascia of the truck, which will look slightly different. The grille for example will undergo some redesigning. Two huge bars that are made from chrome help to make the grille look different than that of the present model. Also, the new grille does not have a frame but the bars continue all the way to the vertical headlights. The bumper will be made from chrome. We are not sure but we think that the dimensions of the new F-250 will remain unchanged from the present model. The aluminum body means that the weight of the vehicle comes down considerably. In fact, the new F-250 will lose about 317 kilograms of weight.
2017 Ford F-250: Engine Specs
It is hard to tell what kind of drive unit the vehicle has but those in the know say that the 2017 Ford F-250 will be powered by either a 6.2-lite V8 gasoline engine or a 6.7-Liter Power Stroke turbo diesel engine. Both engines are expected to perform very well and will be refined to give better fuel economy as well as abilities. The F-250 will be able to tow more loads than its predecessor. The new aluminum parts used in the vehicle and the lower weight should all contribute to improved performance. The engine will probably be mated to a 6-speed automatic transmission or to a new 10-speed transmission that is currently being developed by Ford and General Motors.
2017 Ford F-250: Release Date and Price

Though the company has also not revealed the price of the 2017 Ford F-250 we can assume that it will vary in the region of between 35 000 dollars and 60 000 dollars.
