New 2017 Ford F-Series Super Duty features all-aluminum body

Ford has introduced the new 2017 Ford F-Series Super Duty trucks. Following the lead of the F-150, the new F-Series Super Duty pickup truck and chassis cab feature an all-new, fully boxed frame built with more than 95% high-strength steel and a segment-first, high-strength, military-grade, aluminum-alloy body.

Together, the high-strength steel and high-strength aluminum alloy help reduce weight by up to 350 pounds.

The new frame is up to 24 times stiffer than the previous frame, enabling the most towing and hauling capability ever delivered by Super Duty. The new truck line features heavier-duty four-wheel-drive components, driveline, axles and towing hardware.

The Super Duty aluminum alloy body is more dent- and ding-resistant than the outgoing steel body and not subject to red rust corrosion.

The frame features an open-C-channel design behind the cab to enable easy aftermarket body upfit and modification.

The all-new Super Duty will be built at Kentucky Truck Plant, and goes on sale late next year.
