The Ford F-Series is widely regarded as the most capable, toughest truck line in the automotive industry. The latest Ford F-Series Super Duty proved that yet again with its 13th annual winning of the “Truck of Texas” award. The 2017 Ford F-Series Super Duty proved it’s the toughest truck around at the annual TAWA Texas Truck Rodeo.
The Texas Auto Writers Association hands out the prestigious award to the winner at the Texas Truck Rodeo. This isn’t the first time the Ford F-Series has won such an honor. In fact, this is the 13th time Ford took home the title. It isn’t the only honor the truck line receive though.
More than 70 members of the Texas Auto Writers Association named Ford Motor Company as the ‘Truck Line of Texas” which speaks volumes for the F-Series. The 3.5-liter EcoBoost V6 engine mated to a 10-speed automatic transmission took home the “Best Powertrain” award as well.
To close out the list, the 2017 Ford Super Duty also drove off as the winner of the Heavy Duty Pick Truck segment.
We here at Shults Ford of Wexford are proud to see such a tough truck continuing to get the recognition it deserves!
Winter is right around the corner which means it’s time to freshen up on driving on slick roadways! Winter roadways are a different beast to tackle for most drivers but there are ways to improve your safety on the go. Here are some winter driving tips from us here at Shults Ford of Wexford so you can stay on the road this season!
- Slow Down – It takes longer to stop on slick roadways which makes slowing down and taking your time even more of a necessity in winter. Try to keep a distance of eight to ten second or car lengths in order to give yourself plenty of time to stop. Keep in mind that pulling off a fast turn on snow-covered roads could easily leave you in a ditch or snowbank.
- Avoid Distractions – Distracted driving is a serious problem on the modern roads and it becomes even more dangerous during winter. The roads can be unpredictable which makes putting the smartphone away even more crucial. Avoid becoming a statistic by making use of steering-wheel controls and voice-recognition software this winter.
- Don’t Drive – If you aren’t confident in your ability to reach your destination during harsh weather, avoid driving altogether. If you don’t have to go out on the road, don’t. Make sure to watch the local weather report every day as well!
