DURABILITY OVER THE LONG HAUL.

Today’s Super Duty® has a high-strength, military-grade60  aluminum-alloy body that’s lighter than steel yet incredibly strong. And its fully boxed under-cab and C-channel aft- of-cab frame is built of 95 percent high-strength steel. More than 19 million kilometres of testing went into delivering the hauling and towing capability you can depend on over the long haul.

HIGH-STRENGTH, MILITARY-GRADE60  ALUMINUM-ALLOY BODY

The 2019 Ford Super Duty® is the only Class 3–5 chassis cab* with a high-strength, military-grade60  aluminum-alloy body. It’s lighter than the previous generation steel, yet immensely strong. And it’s also more dent and ding resistant and not subject to red rust corrosion. Beneath this lighter body is a fully boxed under-cab and C-channel aft-of-cab frame built of 95 percent high-strength steel.

FULLY BOXED UNDER-CAB FRAME

The Super Duty® Chassis Cab features a fully boxed under-cab and C-channel aft-of- cab frame made of 95 percent high-strength steel with up to 10 crossmembers. Torsional rigidity is eight times greater than the previous generation. The C-channel frame easily accommodates a wide range of upfits from flat and dump beds to wrecker, service and delivery bodies.

RUGGED AXLES, CHASSIS AND DRIVELINE COMPONENTS

The frame of today’s generation of Ford Super Duty® is stronger than ever before. The axles, suspension, brakes, driveline and transfer case are also larger and heftier than the previous generation for greater strength and capability. Super Duty Chassis Cabs are more than up to the task of taking on the toughest jobs in the most demanding industries.

TOUGH, HEFTY BRAKES

The components of the four-wheel anti-lock brakes in today’s generation of F-450/F-550 models are larger than before, with the largest rotors in their class* — 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 equipment or cargo. And you want them to last because having to replace brakes too often can be a drag on your bottom line.

MORE THAN 19 MILLION KILOMETRES OF TESTING

We committed this latest generation of the Super Duty® to more than 19 million kilometres of testing, under real and simulated 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.

ENGINEERED FOR EXTREMES

We evaluated the Super Duty® on computers and dynamometres in the lab and then tested it at the proving grounds and on public roads and highways at extreme temperatures at both ends of the scale. We conducted thermal shocks that swung ambient temperature 120 degrees Celsius in under two minutes, as well as powertrain tests that replicated going up a six-degree grade over 800 kilometres. 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.
