Ford’s Super Duty lineup is consisted of F-250, F-350 and F-450. Together with F-150, these models make a group of company’s light and heavy duty trucks, which is considered as the most successful when it comes to number of units sold. Super Duty series were originally introduced in 1999 and so far we have seen three generations. Finally, we will see a fourth-generation model, which will come as 2017 Ford Super Duty. New model will feature completely new look and also a plenty of technical novelties.
2017 Ford Super Duty exterior
The 2017 Ford Super Duty will come with plenty of significant changes. Plenty of solutions that came with F-150 will be implemented on these series too. For example, frame will be 95 percent made of ultra high-strength steel, while body will be made mostly of aluminum. This will provide massive weight savings, which will make significant impact on overall performances. The 2017 Super Duty will also feature completely new exterior design. It will come with bold and muscular overall shape. Front end will suffer biggest changes, and most notable are vertical headlights, angular sheet metal and new massive grille that comes without the current model’s chromed frame. It is also worth to mention that every model will have its own, pretty much unique front fascia.
2017 Ford Super Duty interior
When it is about interior, 2017 Ford Super Duty will come with plenty of changes too. Still, these changes will be more evolutional than revolutionary ones. We will see plenty of improvements both in terms of comfort and high-tech features, although these models are primarily designed as work trucks.
2017 Ford Super Duty engines
When it is about engines, we expect to see same offer as for the current model. However, these units are expected to come with improvements both in terms of power and economy. The 2017 Ford Super Duty will be available with two petrol and one diesel engine. Petrol units will be 6.2 liter V8 and 6.8 V10 with 385 and 362 horses respectively. When it is about diesel unit, it is a 6.7 liter V8, which is good enough for 440 horsepower and 860 pound-feet of max torque. All these engines are paired with 6-speed automatic transmission.
2017 Ford Super Duty release date
The exact release date of 2017 Ford Super Duty is still unknown. However, it is expected that new generation will have its premiere at the upcoming LA Auto Show.
