History of the Ford F-150 | Bob Tomes Ford

One of the longest running awards in the truck arena was recently given to the 2017 Ford Super Duty. Motor Trend crowned the 2017 line of Ford Super Duty Trucks as Truck of the Year, which includes the F-250, F-350, and select F-450 models.

Bob Tomes Ford, your Ford dealer in McKinney, Texas, is proud to offer a large selection of Ford trucks.

Improved Efficiency

Motor Trend used a real world MPG testing routine and showed that the Ford Super Duties, in all configurations, outperformed the equivalent Ram trucks. Given the gas-motor F-250 weighs 400+ pounds less than the Ram 2500 similarly equipped, there was an expected advantage - it was no surprise to see the Ford deliver 11/16.4/12.9 mpg city/highway/combined versus the Ram’s 9.2/15./11.4.

The F-350 dual-rear-wheel diesel, despite weighing 8,643 pounds, returned a great 16.3/20.5/18.0 mpg city/highway/combined. The F-350’s results are impressive compared to the Ram 3500 dually’s 13.3/17.3/14.8 result. Did we mention class-leading torque and towing/payload capability?


Ford ads tout the Super Duty’s class-leading 32,500-pound towing capacity and a 7,630-pound max payload capacity.
