Cut the body weight of the previous-generation Super Duty with high-strength, military-grade, aluminum alloy. Reinvest the weight savings in a stronger high-strength steel frame and chassis components. Put the muscle where it really counts to work for you on a tough job site or on rugged off-road terrain.
The Super Duty has the only high-strength, military-grade, aluminum-alloy body in its class. Aluminum alloy is substantially lighter than the previous body, yet it's remarkably strong. It's also more dent-and-ding resistant and not subject to red rust corrosion. Use of aluminum alloy allowed some of the weight savings to be reinvested where it matters the most, especially in the frame that's the foundation of strength and toughness.
The fully boxed frame, built of over 95 percent high-strength steel with up to 10 crossmembers, is 24 times stiffer than the previous design. The frame is designed to minimize flexing and twisting while maximizing strength and torsional rigidity — and serves as the foundation for Super Duty achieving the highest payload and tow ratings in its class.
Super Duty comes with standard AdvanceTrac with Roll Stability Control (RSC ) and Trailer Sway Control on both single- and dual-rear-wheel models. Both systems use gyroscopic sensors and apply a combination of reduced engine power and selective wheel braking to help maintain the stability of the vehicle and the trailer in tow.
The available class-exclusive Trailer Reverse Guidance enhances visibility via cameras in the sideview mirrors and visual guides in the center dash screen. You get a clear rear view of where the trailer is going, with the guidelines changing with the movements of the steering wheel. The camera view is digitally expanded to show the direction of the truck and the trailer. Now, one difficult task on the job isn't so difficult anymore
No longer do you have to get out of the cab to check if the tires on the trailer you're towing are properly inflated. The available class-exclusive* Trailer Tire Pressure Monitoring System makes this information available on an in-dash display
Available Adaptive Cruise Control slows you down as traffic ahead slows, then resumes the preset speed when traffic picks back up. The Collision Warning/Brake Support feature precharges the brakes for full responsiveness. if you don't react in time. It's integrated into the trailer brake controller for added security when you're towing a heavy load.
Whether your Super Duty runs on diesel or gas power, available is the optional class-exclusive Live-Drive Power Takeoff (PTO) Provision with Mobile Mode. An output gear connected to the crankshaft powers a PTO when the engine is running, whether in motion or stopped. Multiple accessories can be operated at the same time when the truck is stopped.
Today's Super Duty is the hardest-working Ford heavy-duty pickup ever. But while your truck is built to work hard, available technologies such as BLIS (Blind Spot Information System) with Cross-Traffic Alert and Trailer Tow, Trailer Reverse Guidance and SYNC 3 help you work smarter and more productively. These are optional features you can get on any Super Duty from the base XL to the top-of-the-line Limited model.
