Decrease Font Size Increase Font Size Text Size Print This Page

The 2017 Ford F-Series Super Duty has been completely redesigned for the first time since 1999. The Super Duty now features a high-strength aluminum cargo box and body panels, which have reduced the weight of the truck by as much as 350 pounds. This weight loss is important because the Super Duty also includes a new chassis that uses 95% high-strength steel. This updated platform should make the work truck even more capable than previous versions. The 2017 Ford Super Duty is available in three unique body styles and consumers get to choose between a 6.75-foot bed and a longer 8-foot option.

The 2017 Ford F-Series Super Duty provides seating for up to six people and carries a starting MSRP of less than $33,000

2017 Ford F-Series Super Duty Efficiency

Because the 2017 Ford Super Duty has a Gross Vehicle Weight Rating (GVWR) of more than 8,500 pounds, the EPA doesn’t require fuel economy testing to be performed on Ford’s new heavy-duty truck. Moreover, this pickup comes with either a 34- or 48-gallon fuel tank depending on how each buyer chooses to configure their truck. Ford has claimed that when it’s new Super Duty is equipped with the turbodiesel V8 and 48-gallon tank; it can provide a driving range of close to 1,000 miles.

2017 Ford F-Series Super Duty Interior

There are three cab configurations offered with the 2017 Super Duty. These body styles are regular cab, extended cab, and crew cab. The extended cab model is six inches longer than last year thanks to the Super Duty’s redesigned body, which it borrowed from the smaller F-150 pickup. Every new Super Duty comes standard with a four-speaker sound system, air-conditioning, and vinyl flooring, which makes the interior easier to clean after muddy work boots have repeatedly gone through the vehicle. The cabin is also quiet and comfortable due to the extensive use of sound-insulating materials in the truck’s design. In addition, the interior can be equipped with a long list of luxury amenities depending on how much the consumer is willing to spend. Some of these available features include heated and cooled seats, a leather-wrapped steering wheel, a navigation system, and Apple CarPlay compatibility, just to name a few pieces of optional equipment.
