Ford has unveiled the all-new 2017 F-Series Super Duty, which it says is “the toughest, smartest, most capable Super Duty truck lineup ever.” The big news is that the new F-Series Super Duty now has an all-new high-strength steel frame, that’s wrapped in a new aluminum-alloy body.
The new Super Duty pickup features a new fully boxed frame that is comprised of more than 95 percent high-strength steel that is 24 times stiffer than the outgoing model. The new frame will also help the new Super Duty have the most towing and hauling capability ever offered by a Super Duty. Also for the first time ever, the Super Duty now has a military-grade, aluminum alloy body that is more dent and ding resistant than the outgoing steel body. Together the new high-strength steel frame and aluminum body help the Super Duty drop up to 350 pounds.

All three cabs – Regular Cab, SuperCab and Crew Cab – are longer and feature a new interior design, including dual compartment glove box, overhead console-mounted auxiliary switches to operate aftermarket equipment, and completely flat SuperCab and Crew Cab second-row floors .
When the 2017 Super Duty arrives late next year, it will be offered with a number of new driver assist technologies, like SYNC 3, a blind spot information system, lane departure warning and adaptive cruise control. Also as many as seven cameras help customers see more angles and monitor conditions surrounding the truck, and provide better trailering than ever before.
