One of the best models in Ford’s truck segment in towing is definitely the Super Duty. The vehicle has an authentic design because of its vertical door handles, sloping window slots, and the grille with rectangular shape. Most of the aforementioned features will remain unchanged for the 2017 model year. Of course, there will be many new features that will witness that it is a new model. One of the greatest changes is that the vehicle will be made out of better and stiffer materials. The brand-new frame will be constructed out of 95% high-strength steel. The backbone of the vehicle will be fully boxed and the company claims that it will be for about 24% stiffer than the outgoing fully C-channeled frame. Stay tuned if you want to find out more details about the 2017 Ford Super Duty.
2017 Ford Super Duty Exterior
At the very first sight, the vehicle looks much different from the outgoing model. It sports a refreshed grille and new headlights. The truck still carries some of the original styling cues from 1998. The refreshed, twin-bar grille comes with vertical side vents inside of the headlamps. The front windows of the Ford Super Duty 2017 still feature the downward slope.
The new cabin represents a significant departure from the previous generation. Its design is almost the same as the one of the F-150. This helped the company to cut costs. The new side vents now stand vertically. The vehicle also gets a new lightning package. Quad-beam LED headlights arrive as exclusive, the cargo box gets LED lights, and LED side spotlights are also mounted within the side mirrors. The rear end of the truck also takes a huge departure from the outgoing model and the F-150. It will be decorated with tall taillights and newly designed bumper.
Ford Super Duty 2017 Interior
When you peek inside of the cabin of the 2017 Ford Super Duty, you will see a rather familiar environment. Yes, the interior of the vehicle represents a carbon copy of the F-150, but we do not mind that. The materials used for the upholstery and covering surfaces are ale low-sheen and keep glare down for easier daytime driving. A great majority of customers were satisfied with the TFT display, ergonomic switches, and SYNC technology of the F-150 and that is exactly what is going to be incorporated inside of the cabin of the 2017 Ford Super Duty.
Engine of 2017 Super Duty
Under the hood of the 2017 Ford Super Duty, you will find a 6.2-liter gasoline V-8 and a 6.7-liter Power Stroke V-8. A 6.8-liter gasoline V-10 is also available. All engine options will be mated to an automatic shifter. The company is keeping details about torque and horsepower under wraps but we assume that all of the engines will receive increases. There are some rumors that the 6.7-liter Power Stroke will be able to deliver for about 1,000 pound-feet of torque.
2017 Ford Super Duty Price
Even though the company hasn’t shared details about the price, we bet that costs will increase. The starting price for the 2015 model was around $32.400 and increased to $60.000 for highest trim levels.
