Earnhardt Auto Centers is known for sales and service of reliable cars and trucks and the company’s support of all things rodeo. Earnhardt was one of the sponsors of the Rodeo Naked GCPRA Rodeo held September 22-23 in Queen Creek.
Attendees thrilled to Grand Canyon Pro Rodeo Association competition featuring top athletes from the GCPRA and surrounding areas. But this event was more than just a good time with great competition. Funds raised from this benefit rodeo will assist families affected by Hurricane Harvey. A food drive collected items for Red Cross shelters, and funds from silent auctions and 50/50 raffles held each night will help families who lost their homes from the hurricane.
Anytime you’re heading to the rodeo as a contestant or as a spectator, you won’t go wrong with the Ford F-250. The revamped 2017 model of the Ford F-250 reduced overall weight by using an aluminum-alloy body and a frame containing high-strength steel, which according to Ford makes the latest model about 350 pounds lighter than previous models.
Power is provided from a standard 6.2-liter V8 engine, or you can opt for the 6.7-liter turbodiesel V8 engine. With the trailer tow package, maximum towing capacity for the F-250 is 18,000 pounds — plenty for all your rodeo hauling needs!
Add-ons can customize your F-250 with safety and technology tools. Several camera and monitor systems can be added, including one camera mounted near the cab top — allowing you to check the cargo box. Another option, the “Trailer Reverse Guidance” system allows you to hook up your trailer on your own by guiding you on which way to turn the steering wheel while reversing. An additional camera can be placed on a trailer for even more assistance. Blind-spot monitoring with rear cross-traffic alert and adapted cruise control are other popular options.
