For the change, the 2017 Ford Super Duty has decided to change the steel bodywork into aluminum. The change is not without a reason however, it is done so for the purpose of making the Super Duty pickup lighter. Craig Schmatz, a chief engineer on the Super Duty program, once said in a release that the outcome is Super Duty customers will be able to tow and haul more than ever before which leads to them being satisfied. Being lighter means the Super Duty will be able to carry a lot more. Though, this move has surprised a lot of surprises and caused quite a stir in the automotive industry – let’s just see how it turned to be.

The new Super Duty also gained more high tech options, clearly hoping to further the trend of high tech options that have been going on lately, with the latest Sync 3 infotainment (replacing the MyFord Touch architecture), as well as variable-rack adaptive steering, a 360-degree camera system, second-row inflatable seat belts and LED lighting inside and out. Other new safety-minded driver assistance that will likely to make your driving safer is lane departure warning and adaptive cruise control with emergency brake support.

As for the improvements, there are plenty. It is said that the body panels are said to be more dent resistant before so, you don’t need to fret whenever your Super Duty bumps against something – although it is much better if you don’t bump against something but, accidents can happen. The 2017 Super Duty’s frame is stronger six times as much as before which is about 95 % high-strength level. Also, the beefed-up structure that is available in five lengths and the three cab configurations are much more stiffer (about 24 times more), moreover than the outgoing versions. The price hasn’t been released yet but when it’s nearing the time of the release of 2017 Ford Super Duty, it will be announced so, just wait!
