The all-new 2017 Ford F-Series Super Duty was recently awarded the “Truck of Texas” award at the annual Texas Auto Writers Association Truck Rodeo. This prestigious award is given to the best of the best. The new model won multiple categories as well, including the Best Heavy Duty Pickup and Best Powertrain.
According to Ford, more than 70 members voted as part of the contest. The Truck of Texas award is only given out once a year for the past 23 years. Believe it or not, the Super Duty has won 13 times total, making it the most successful brand in the TAWA Truck Rodeo history. The judges were especially impressed by the model’s recent weight reduction and advanced features. That’s not to mention its impressive capabilities.
“Ford’s all-new 2017 Super Duty and its innovative use of advance materials, as well as improvements in powertrain and features, thoroughly impressed our journalists,” TAWA President Nic Phillips said. “After careful evaluation, I believe the results of the competition show just how competitive the truck and utility vehicles are today.”
Other new features on this model include things like the 360-degree camera system, a Trailer Reverse Guidance system, and an award-winning 3.5-liter EcoBoost V6. In addition to the new Truck of Texas award, the Ford was also named the Truck Line of Texas.
