Drive Wire: Ford’s New F-250


Pickup lovers rejoice. Ford has leaked specs for the 2017 F-250. This dearborn workhorse has an aluminum body with a high strength steel frame reported to be 24 times stronger than the current model. To compete in the increasingly tech-oriented auto landscape, the new F-250 will have seven cameras, collision sensor with brake assist, and lane departure warnings. Buyer can choose from one of three engines, a standard V8, a diesel V8 and a 6.8 liter V-10. Expect the 2017 F-250 to go on sale in late 2016.
