2017 Ford F-Series Super Duty named Truck of Texas

Texas has spoken.

At least its automotive journalists have, and they’ve chosen the 2017 F-Series Super Duty as this year’s Truck of Texas.

The award carries great weight in the industry, as Texas accounts for one out of every five pickups sold in the United States.

The award is given annually at the Texas Auto Writers Association’s Texas Truck Rodeo, where 70 jurors convened this year.

The organization praised the “use of advanced materials, as well as improvements in powertrain and features” in the all-new truck, which for the first time features an all-aluminum body and offers best in class payload and tow ratings, a 360-degree camera system, trailer backup assist, adaptive cruise control, and a 440 hp/925 lb-ft 6.7-liter turbocharged six-cylinder diesel, among other features.

Winners were chosen in 23 categories, with Ford also taking the titles of truck line of Texas, best powertrain, and best heavy duty pickup, while Nissan hauled home five awards.
