2017 Ford F-Series Super Duty Delivers Workhorse Capabilities

The all-new 2017 Ford F-Series Super Duty is the most capable Super Duty lineup to ever land on the market. When the roster arrives to Town East Ford for the 2017 model year, buyers will be able to choose between five different models: XL, XLT, Lariat, King Ranch and Platinum. Offering 16 new class-exclusive features, hearty engine options and first-class towing, the 2017 Super Duty will redefine work trucks as we know them and represent what it means to be Built Ford Tough.

Strong and Capable

Fully redesigned for 2017, the Super Duty has a brand-new frame made up of more than 95 percent high-strength steel. Due to this improvement, the Super Duty is now 24 times stiffer than before and delivers greater towing and hauling capabilities across all models. Like the all-new 2015 Ford F-150, the latest Super Duty also features an aluminum-alloy body that is ding-resistant and eliminates the chance of red rust corrosion. These material enhancements - among others - have led to a 350-pound weight reduction, boosting the truck's overall performance.

Speaking of performance, the 2017 F-Series Super Duty is available with three fully capable powertrains offered on select models. A 6.7L Power Stroke V8 diesel is available on pickup trucks and chassis cabs, while a 6.2L V8 gas engine paired with the new TorqShift-G transmission is offered on the F-250 pickup. Additionally, all chassis cabs can be matched with either the V8 diesel, V8 gas engine or a 6.8L V10 gas engine.

Interior Design & Cargo Box Features

The Regular Cab, Crew Cab and SuperCab all receive new interior options for 2017. Each version gains console-mounted auxiliary switches to control aftermarket equipment, as well as a dual compartment glove box. In addition to these changes, all cargo boxes now come with Box Link, which allows owners to easily secure items within the cargo box, and a new remote tailgate lock/release feature, giving drivers the ability to lock and unlock the tailgate with their key fob.

Brand-New Technology

Those who choose to purchase an all-new 2017 Ford Super Duty will be impressed by all of the fresh state-of-the-art tech offered across the roster. Adaptive cruise control, adaptive steering, LED sideview mirror spotlights, LED cargo box lights, and class-exclusive quad-beam LED headlights and taillights are featured on the new Super Duty. On top of these additions, seven new cameras can be fitted on each model, making towing a cinch. With increased visibility all around the vehicle, you can now feel confident when hauling hefty loads.

Another notable tech component offered on the new F-Series Super Duty is Ford's upgraded infotainment system: SYNC 3. Complete with voice recognition, hands-free calling, 911 Assist, navigation and Bluetooth audio, the high-performance, responsive system is a perfect addition to this year's Super Duty.
