Last month, the Texas Auto Writers Association (TAWA) announced the results of their 23rd annual Texas Truck Rodeo. You don’t have to live in Texas to appreciate that the Truck Rodeo is one of the toughest auto competitions around. The TAWA Truck Rodeo features two days of competition for most of the trucks on the market that year. This year, more than 70 TAWA journalists gathered to steer the trucks through a variety of on- and off-road courses and determined which were the best across a range of categories. When it came to the top category, the answer was clear: the Ford Super Duty, for the 13th time in its history, was honored with the prestigious Truck of Texas award.

Here at your Shelbyville, KY Ford dealership, we already knew that the 2017 Ford Super Duty is the best version yet of Ford trucks yet. Louisville, Lawrenceburg, and other area drivers who have already invested in this remarkable pickup will have noticed its toughness when tackling difficult jobs, its new and improved smart technology, and of course, its powerful engine. It’s no accident that the 2017 Ford Super Duty rose to the top of the pack this year. Ford automakers worked hard to improve it, creating a frame using over 95% high strength steel to give the truck the stiffness it needs for best-in-class capabilities to tow and hall. They also incorporated advanced technology like camera technology that makes towing easier, adaptive cruise control, and LED lighting.

If you’re ready for a truck that can handle anything you throw at it, there has never been a better time to invest in a Ford Super Duty. Come visit us at O’Brien Ford of Shelbyville today to find out exactly what the TAWA journalists saw when they named the 2017 Ford Super Duty the Truck of Texas, and the Ford Company the Truck Line of Texas.
