Ford stakes claim as King of The Hill

Since 1998, the Super Duty has lead Ford’s truck segment in towing, payload, and sheer power. That original design, with its vertical door handles, rectangular grille, and sloping window slots, have remained almost unchanged. Unlike the competition, the Super Duty wore different bodywork and interior as compare to the half-ton offering. In Ford’s case, it was the F-150.

However, that’s all about to change. All-new for the 2017 model year, the Ford Super Duty takes after its F-150 little brother’s cab section while still wearing different sheet metal. Well, at least the sheet metal is shaped differently. The 2017 Super Duty has adopted the 2015 Ford F-150’s all-aluminum body in an effort to cut weight.

Also like the F-150, the Super Duty uses an all-new frame constructed out of 95 percent high-strength steel. The backbone is fully boxed like the F-150’s and is said to be up to 24 percent stiffer than the previous Super Duty’s fully C-channeled frame.

Though no regular truck guy will gloat about how light his heavy-duty truck is, Ford says the new Super Duty is up to 350 pounds lighter than before. Of course, that’s thanks to the aluminum body and high-strength steel frame.

The 2017 Super Duty is a large departure from the one it replaces, not only in design, but also in technology. Keep reading for all the details.
