Three Worst Features of the 2017 Super Duty?

2017 Super Duty

Even the Best Vehicles Aren’t Perfect. Are these the Three Worst Features on the New Super Duty?

Nobody and nothing is perfect. The old saying holds true for people, and it sure holds true for trucks. But Ford built a real doozy when it rolled out the all-new, 2017 Super Duty. This is a truck that sets the bar really high for the competition. Of course, that won’t stop folks from nitpicking.

The three complaints logged in this video can certainly be classified as nitpicking. And it will be interesting to see how people react to it (spoiler alert: trolling ahead!). So let’s take a look at the three things that Mr. Aaron Leonard doesn’t like about the 2017 Super Duty.

First off, Mr. Leonard thinks that the sheer height of the new Super Duty is an issue. For those who are, well, vertically challenged. This could certainly be a problem if you need to reach over the side of the bed to grab something. In addition, it makes loading more difficult.

Next, Leonard points out that the new rigid frame means ride quality isn’t going to be as good. This is also the first complaint I’ve heard about ride quality in the 2017 Super Duty. I will say that if you’ve ever driven an old truck, these new Fords ride like luxury cars in comparison!

Leonard also points out that you have to change the DEF fluid roughly every other fuel up as well. This is nothing new to diesel owners, even if it is a pain in the neck.

Lastly (actually a fourth complaint, if you’re counting), he hates that there’s only one USB port in the XLT. This might be the most legitimate complaint of all, but it’s not something that will make someone not buy 2017 Super Duty.

So there you go. If those are the worst things about a 2017 Super Duty, I’m pretty sure I can live with them. What do you think?
