If you need to tow 17,000 pounds of stuff, you're going to need a big truck. And Ford's F-Series is rife with big trucks. The aforementioned maximum tow rating is only one of the improvements made to the F-Series this year. The torque for its diesel engine has been pushed to 570 lb./ft., with torque being perhaps the second-most critical value to consider for towing, after  max tow capacity. The F-Series presents many, many options allowing the displacement of anywhere from $22,000 to $44,000 from your savings. The revised Harley-Davidson F-250 now features 20-inch wheels and a paint job that tries to trick a viewer into thinking the truck is on fire; the King Ranch is a luxury pickup; and the F-450 and 550 commercial trucks promise increases in on-road competency. Ford's commitment to the towing crowd is further displayed by their willingness to offer factory-installed trailer brake controllers (which most towers would purchase in the aftermarket), an industry first.
