Toughest, Most Durable Super Duty® Ever.

Toughest, Most Durable Super Duty® Ever.

We’ve engineered the 2017 Super Duty® to be the toughest, most capable*, hardest working Class 3-5 chassis cab we’ve ever built. The cab is made of high-strength, military-grade, 6000-series aluminum alloy that’s lighter than steel yet incredibly strong. We took some of that weight savings and reinvested it where it counts the most in a work truck — in stronger axles, chassis and steering components, and an all-new fully boxed under-cab/c-channel aft-of-cab frame built of 95 percent high-strength steel. That means greater hauling and towing capability on the tough jobs you face every workday.
* Most capable based on higher maximum towing, payload and GCWR than 2016 super Duty Chassis Cab models. When properly configured.
High-Strength, Military-Grade Aluminum Alloy Body

High-Strength, Military-Grade Aluminum Alloy Body

The Super Duty® Chassis Cab has a high-strength, military-grade aluminum-alloy body. Aluminum alloy is lighter than the steel previously used, yet it’s immensely strong. It’s also more dent-and ding-resistant and not subject to red rust. Beneath this lighter body is a fully boxed under-cab/c-channel aft-of-cab frame that’s built of 95 percent high-strength steel and has eight times the torsional rigidity of the previous design.

Fully-Boxed Under-Cab and C-Channel Aft-of-Cab Frame

The Super Duty® Chassis Cab features an all-new, fully boxed under-cab/c-channel aft-of-cab frame made of 95 percent high-strength steel with up to 10 crossmembers (8 through-welded). Torsional rigidity is eight times greater than the previous design. The redesigned c-channel frame easily accommodates a wide range of upfits from flat and dump beds, to wreckers, to service and delivery bodies.
Stronger Axles, Chassis and Driveline Components

Stronger Axles, Chassis and Driveline Components

We didn’t stop at making the frame of the Super Duty® much stronger than before. The axles, suspension, brakes, driveline and transfer case are larger and heftier for greater strength and capability. More than ever, our Super Duty chassis cabs are up to the task of taking on the toughest jobs in the most demanding industries.
Larger and Stronger Brakes

Larger and Stronger Brakes

We’ve made the components of the 4-wheel anti-lock brake system in F-450/F-550 models larger than the previous model year with upsized caliper pads and rotors - and for two important reasons:

  • You want them to provide the sure stopping power you expect when you’re out on the job hauling tons of whatever it is that’s riding along with you behind the cab.
  • You want them to last, because having to replace brakes too often can be a real drag on your bottom line.
Over 19 Million Kilometres of Testing

Over 19 Million Kilometres of Testing

A truck as revolutionary in strength and durability as the all-new  Super Duty® isn’t born overnight. We committed this latest generation of Super Duty to over 19 million kilometres of testing, under both simulated and real conditions. We also put prototype models in the hands of people like you, working in some of the most demanding industries. Our goal: build a line of Class 3–5 trucks with extraordinary performance and capability never seen before — that is, until now.
Engineered for the Extremes

Engineered for the Extremes

We evaluated the new Super Duty® on computers and dynamometers in the lab, then tested it at the proving grounds and on public roads and highways. We tested it in unforgiving temperatures, and conducted thermal shocks that swung ambient temperature 121 C in under two minutes. We performed powertrain tests that replicated going up a six-degree grade for over 800 kilometres, and even designed a new dynamometer to push the truck even further than conventional testing. We subjected Super Duty to four-post frame twists, gravel, dust, water, salt-brine, mud baths and even intentionally tested with worn or broken parts. We’re talking here about extreme conditions that often went far beyond what you would likely encounter on your toughest of jobs.
