Need a truck that can tow heavy? Set your sights on one from the Ford F-Series. The award-winning truck brand, available at Sound Ford, features a lineup that's adept for any number of towing scenarios, no matter how unconventional. Class-leading features like Trailer Reverse Guidance and a 360-degree camera system with trailer view - exclusive to the brand - make it a standout option.
Petite Retreats, a company providing unique accommodations, took those features to heart when they selected the F-Series as the truck of choice to tow the latest tiny houses in their selection. The houses will be towed across the nation using a 2017 Ford F-150 and 2017 F-250 Super Duty.
Todd Eckert, Ford's truck group marketing manager, believes that the respective trucks are perfect for the nationwide tour. “With Super Duty’s best-in-class 925 lb.-ft. of torque and up to 32,500 pounds of towing, plus F-150 with its segment-first 10-speed automatic transmission mated to an all-new 3.5-liter EcoBoost engine that helps deliver best-in-class EPA-estimated gas fuel efficiency, F-Series trucks own towing,” he said. And it's a good thing, since the two Petite Retreats are over 9,000 and 12,000 pounds.
