GALLERY: 2017 Ford Super Duty Hits a Rocky Mountain High in Colorado

2017 Ford Super Duty Ford-Trucks 33

To show us how it made its 2017 Super Duty trucks the toughest, smartest, and most capable ones ever, Ford flew us up to Colorado last week so we could drive, tow, and off-road in them.

It started with a series of in-depth explorations of its stiffer, fully-boxed high-strength-steel frame, seven available visibility-enhancing cameras, and other features outside of Denver’s Mile High Stadium. The next morning, we picked a Power-Stroke-powered Ruby Red Metallic F-250 King Ranch 4X4 out of the assembled variety of media testers and headed out to the natural beauty of Eldorado Can​yon State Park. After that, we pulled a 10,000-pound trailer and its contents behind an F-350 dually. We wrapped the day up by crawling across rocks, ascending and descending steep grades, and flooring it through muddy water in a Super Duty FX4 equipped with the more powerful 6.2-liter gas V8. You can see what we saw in the gallery below.
