Heavy-duty trucks have never fared well when it came to new technology. It seems they were almost always the last segment to get the latest in-car tech—until now. Ford is adding some excellent heavy-duty technology to the all-new 2017 F-Series Super Duty lineup.
Starting up front, the new Super Duty has a distinctive LED headlight design. And, throughout the body, just like with the F-150, Ford used military-grade aluminum, including in the hood, fenders, cab, and bed. This lighter weight material allowed Ford to redirect some weight to more important areas, such as the steel frame and axles.
On the technology side is where the 2017 Super Duty will really stand apart from the competition. Depending on the options, buyers can add a whole suite of cameras for a literal 360-degree view of the truck, especially helpful when navigating crowded work sites or tight parking spaces.
Buyers can also add a variety of driver assistance features, including adaptive cruise control and adaptive steering, which varies the steering ratio depending on driving conditions.
As a final upgrade, the new Super Duty lineup is available in a wide range of trim levels. Upper trims offer features such as a panoramic moonroof, massaging seats, and leather seats.
The 2017 Ford F-Series Super Duty lineup is coming to Swant Graber Ford later this year.
