Ford Super Duty Customer Embodies Built Ford Tough Spirit

DEARBORN, Mich–(BUSINESS WIRE)–To help guide the design and engineering of the all-new 2017 Ford
F-Series Super Duty, Ford connected with customers through a special
“Insiders” program to focus on receiving honest feedback from owners who
use Ford trucks every day for everything from ranching, to farming and
industrial work.

Nate Berges, a participant in the Insiders program, owns several Super
Duty pickup trucks, in addition to a fleet of chassis cabs for his
family’s awning company, of which he is the fourth-generation owner.
“Ford trucks are the only trucks I will every buy,” said Berges. “Ford
trucks get the job done – period.”

Yesterday, Berges had the rare opportunity to watch UAW-Ford employees build
his new F-350
at Kentucky Truck Plant, where he was able to drive it
off the end of the line. Today he told the employees, “It’s an
experience I will never forget.”

Berges today joined Joe Hinrichs, Ford president of The Americas,
Congressman John Yarmuth of Kentucky’s 3rd District, Greg
Poet of the UAW National Ford Department and several hundred Ford employees
at Kentucky Truck Plant to officially welcome the all-new 2017 Ford
F-Series Super Duty – now on sale now at Ford dealers across the U.S.

The all-new 2017 Ford F-Series Super Duty is the toughest, smartest and
most capable Super Duty pickup and chassis cab lineup ever. Super Duty
is one of the many cars, trucks and utilities that UAW-Ford workers
build in the U.S. In fact, Ford builds more vehicles and has more hourly
employees in the U.S. than any other automaker.

Super Duty is part of F-Series, America’s best-selling truck for 39
