The all-new, 2017 Ford F-250 Super Duty in King Ranch trim has been named the “Best Premium Three-Quarter Ton Pickup Truck of 2017” by website PickupTrucks.com, after winning a comparison against comparable truck models from General Motors, Ram, and Nissan.

PickupTrucks looked at the payload, towing capacity, acceleration, braking, and overall comfort of each truck model considered for the award, deeming the Ford F-250 King Ranch the overall winner after it managed to place either first or second in 14 of 21 total tests. The truck was redesigned from the ground up for 2017, receiving a new, fully-boxed frame with 95% high-strength steel, a lightweight aluminum-alloy body, and a new available 6.7-liter diesel V8 delivering up to 925 lb-ft of torque.

“Like a great all-around athlete, the new Ford F-250 King Ranch has the powertrain of a bulldozer, and the interior features and technology of a luxury hotel room,” says Mark Williams of PickupTrucks.com about the king of the premium three-quarter-ton trucks. “If we had to tow our monster trailer around the country, we’d want to call this Super Duty home.”
