Trucks Ford Super Duty PASMAG

Using advanced materials to reduce weight, the 2017 F-Series Super Duty pickup truck and chassis cab features all-new, segment-exclusive smart technologies to help increase customer productivity, comfort and convenience. The backbone is an all-new, fully boxed frame comprised of more than 95 percent high-strength steel that makes it up to 24 times stiffer than the previous frame for improved towing and hauling.

The new truck line features heavier-duty four-wheel-drive components, driveline, axles and towing hardware. And for the first time, the Super Duty body uses high-strength, military-grade, aluminum alloy, which is more dent- and ding-resistant than the outgoing steel body and not subject to red rust corrosion. Add in 16 class-exclusive new features like adaptive steering technology and up to seven cameras to make Super Duty the ultimate tow vehicle. Ford-engineered, Ford-built gasoline and diesel engines and transmissions will power the five all-new Super Duty models – XL, XLT, Lariat, King Ranch and Platinum – when it goes on sale next year (2016).
