Upscale 2017 Ford Super Dutys Get Heavy Duty Vinyl Floor Option

Ford SD Vinyl 3 II

The 2017 Ford Super Duty will be different in many ways but offering a vinyl floor on top-of-the-line models is a stroke of genius because trucks with the option installed can be washed out the floor with a sponge, rag or hose if needed. Ford will offer an upgraded vinyl flooring on both King Ranch and Platinum models of the 2017 F-Series Super Duty trucks that go on sale this fall.

Vinyl flooring previously was offered on the lower XL and XLT trim levels, but this is the first time (for any HD truck maker) that the option has been extended to the more luxurious trims. Ford says that the "Super Duty customers... want the luxury of a King Ranch or Platinum edition, while maintaining their ability to use the truck for work without fear of ruining the interior."

Thankfully, the vinyl flooring in both the King Ranch (shown in these photos) and Platinum trim levels will be thicker and more durable than the base vinyl and will come with clips to install floor mats. Each trim's vinyl floor will also have a unique design to match the rest of the luxury interior.

This makes complete sense. If you are using your truck for work then regardless of trim you want a tough floor that is easy to keep clean and not worry about ruining the carpet. I would actually prefer a rubber floor in my truck.

Here you go Eric or whatever your real username is.

Sure provide VIN numbers for your Fords. I will be able to find out exactly what warranty work was performed.

Here is your wonder GM Truck, an ACORN did damaged on that precious beer can hood, so GM has been eating crow since then, damn dolts.

If you believe that story, no wonder you believe in that Military Grade Aluminum thingy Ford keeps harpn about. Don't here GM talking about an aluminum Military grade hood. Same material, but GM is not pumping the false advertising like Ford. Think about that, if you have that ability.

Don't hear GM

GMSRNOTGREAT - the acorn damage thing was way too funny & funnier still; it even comes from a pro-GM site...how do you like that...hahahaha

The truth is spoken; the current generation GM trucks are paper thin military-grade steel LOL. This confirms the cause of their well known rust reputation...probably worse than RAM...hahaha...

I read through those posts, wow, some of them say don't close the hood with your fingers or it will dent the front of the hood. The last post show pics of trucks rusting away.

If Ford does it. Others will copy.

In the US only 5% of new vehicles are custom ordered. Over 50% in Europe. Your talking very few takers here.

I remember reading that the other day to. Makes me wonder if more people would of bought manual transmissions if dealer lots stocked more of them. They use to have a 5% or so take rate.

No Lionel its not current gen trucks go back and read the date on the post 2010 and the top of the page says 1999-2006 trucks. That would be two truck Gens ago the GMT-800s. God can you give any correct information?

I guess they could be talking about GMT-900s, still not the current gen trucks, and I own two 2009 and 2011 and never had any problems with dents on the hood.

@Eric - the company my brother works for buys 100's of pickups at a time. All of their HD's are GM/Chev and all of their 1/2 tons are Ford.

On the subject of recalls:

A study done showed recalls per unit sold. Chrysler had the highest rate. Basically one recall for every unit sold. 100% of vehicles sold. GM was 0.65 per unit sold (statistics pre-ignition recall). Ford's at 0.93/unit.

I believe real truck owners, not trvlls like you.

Acorn damages GM hood, Tons of bricks damage Ford Bed.

GM = SISSY LA LA

You wished Franko, Them two GM trucks plus my current (few recalled added) spend way less time all put together at the dealer, then just one of my two F150s 2006 and 2008. That's why I will stick with GM trucks, unless I have a boat load of problems like my two F150s gave me. If that happens I got Ram, Toyota, and Nissan to try.

Tons? no only 825 pounds kid. Try again make sure to read the data before running your mouth. Wait I forgot you not bright enough.


Posted by: johnny doe | Jun 15, 2016 4:04:30 PM

Tons,...meaning an immense amount. I'll let that one slide because you ain't that educated.

In addition, it took 825 lbs of bricks to damage a Ford Aluminum Bed.

It took an average Acorn weighing in at 4-8 Grams of weight depending on the Tree to damage a GM Truck Aluminum Hood.

PRICELESS!!

Thank you Johnny!!!

Sorry to say it wasn't even half a ton and the F150 had holes in the bed, oh and let's not forget bout the 20 pound tool box making holes.

Lots of people with 800-900GMT trucks that will tell you that guy is full of B/S.

Are you really talking bout Hail now? Do you not read the news after big storms? Everyone gets damage from hail storms, read Automotive news for one summer, and listen to all the dealers from all makes in the south.

Ford executives are full of well you know

If Ford's carpet is as cheap as it was in my 2007 Focus, no sense in carpet, so might as well do something else.

Wow, that car had a 100K and carpet was worn out.

Will probably be a popular option...then watch generic motors and fiat follow as usual


Military grade paper thin? I think you got GM and Ford marketing mixed up there bud. Only one using the military grade line is Ford, and their beds tear like paper. Like thin beer cans would do.

Sorry, it was the best way to describe GOVT motors use of cheap bargain steel to stamp out paper thin engine hoods & butt ugly rust-prone square wheel-wells...LOL!!!

If Ford is going to aluminum on the bigger F series then wouldn't the floor board be aluminum as well. If that is the case then you wouldn't have to worry about cleaning an all vinyl floor since it wouldn't rust.

Someone forgot to ask if the truck bed would hold up to hail damage. LOL

Is this the study that doesn't count the Pinto explosions or the Exploder recall. Tell us what the recall is for.

I got a study for you pull your head out and study FORD FIRES!!!!

Only trucks with wheel well rust are 800 GMT trucks and them trucks are 10 plus years old by now. My dad has a 2013 stx F150 with rust under the fuel door and rust around the taillights. Talk bout rust prone barely a 3 year old truck rusted lol!

So Jeff, I clean mine because it gets dirty. Never thought about rust.

@HemiV6 - The study was released in 2014.

"To that end, the statisticians at the car-search website iSeeCars.com dug deep into both recall histories and sales records from the last three decades to determine which automakers have the best – and worst – track records for recalls relative to their volume. Specifically, they looked at sales records dating back to 1980, and recalls registered since 1985, based on the assumption that most such actions occur after a given model has spent some time out on the road."

Over 30 years Chrysler and affiliates has been one of the worst.

Out of the "domestic" companies, they are the worst.

Eat crow again HEMI V8...:-)
