The ’17 Ford Super Duty F-250 and F-350 are expected to get more modern with aluminum construction in the cab and bed, using lessons learned from the ’15 F-150. That, along with a long-rumored 10-speed automatic planned for numerous RWD Fords in the coming years, should help to make the new Super Duty more efficient than the outgoing vehicle.
Expect this new truck to adopt more in terms of looks with the latest F-150, even if spy photos show a significantly more blocky appearance in keeping with the Super Duty line. The latest driver-assistance features and infotainment should now be offered on these trucks.
Power will still primarily come from a 6.2L V8; no word if Ford's Ecoboost technologies will make their way up here.
The ’17 F-350 Super Duty will debut at the Texas State Fair in September. Expect to see the Super Duty on sale next year as a ’17 model.
