|Ford has released the all-new Ford F-Series Super Duty, the toughest, smartest, most capable Truck ever. The new-generation Superduty truck is said to set new benchmarks in capability, performance and efficiency.|
Using advanced materials to reduce weight, 2017 F-Series Superduty pickup truck and chassis cab feature new, segment exclusive smart technology to help increase customer productivity, comfort and convenience. The backbone is a new, fully boxed frame comprised of more than 95 percent high-strength steel that offers up to 24 times stiffer than the previous frame, enabling the most towing and hauling capability ever delivered by the Superduty.
The new truck line features heavier-duty four-wheel-drive components, driveline, axles and towing hardware. For the first time, the Superduty body uses high-strength, military grade, aluminum alloy. Together, high-strength steel and high-strength aluminum alloy help reduce weight by up to 158 kilograms (350 pounds) while ford is reinvesting additional weight savings everywhere it counts, to give customers more towing and hauling capability than ever before.
Superduty chassis cab features a new, high-strength steel frame with an open-C-channel design behind the cab to enable easy aftermarket body upfit and modification. With the Smartest Towing as the core to the new Superduty’s philosophy, the heavy duty truck takes up a new advanced coaching and camera technology that makes conventional and gooseneck/fifth-wheel towing easier and more efficient than ever. here are 16 segment-first new features, from LED lighting to adaptive cruise control, that assist Superduty drivers to make driving and work situations easier and more comfortable, along with as many as seven cameras to allow the driver to view more angles and monitor conditions surrounding the truck: a center high-mounted stop light camera, a 360-degree camera system, and the first-ever and factory-available trailer camera.
On top of it, the Super Truck features a segment-first, in-cab trailer TPMS (tyre pressure monitoring system) and the Adaptive steering. The adaptive steering reduces the amount of steering input needed to change direction at low speed, while reducing sensitivity to steering input at higher speeds.
Three cabs are available for the Superduty, Regular Cab, SuperCab and Crew Cab. These are longer and feature a new interior design, including dual compartment glove box, overhead console-mounted auxiliary switches to operate aftermarket equipment, and completely flat SuperCab and Crew Cab second-row floors that make loading large items in the cab easy. Vital controls are close at hand, with the integrated trailer brake controller switch located even closer to the driver. Customer accessibility and ease of use extend outside the truck as well, with the cargo box offering customers these class-exclusive features: BoxLink, Remote tailgate lock and release and tailgate with the key fob. The tailgate is damped, dropping gently down, hands-free, to a flat position when opened. There are five versions in the Superduty lineup: XL, XLT, Lariat, King Ranch and Platinum.
The new F-Series Superduty is available with numerous driver assist technologies: SYNC 3 that’s paired to an intuitive smartphone-like 8-inch touch screen, Blind Spot Information System with trailer tow, BLIS (Blind Spot Indicator), Lane departure warning, Adaptive cruise control and collision warning with brake support, the pre-charged brake system, new LED sideview mirror spotlights, the class-exclusive quad-beam LED headlights and rearlights, and the cargo box with LED lighting.
The second-generation Ford-designed, Ford-built 6.7-liter Power Stroke V8 diesel engine is available for pickup trucks and chassis cabs providing the highest combination of horsepower and torque ever. For the Superduty, the choice of powerplants come in the form of the 6.7-liter Power Stroke V8 diesel and 6.8-liter V10 gasoline or 6.2-liter V8 gasoline engines.
