DURABILITY YOU NEED TODAY — AND OVER THE LONG HAUL

Today’s generation of the Ford Super Duty® is the toughest, most capable heavy-duty pickup we’ve ever built. Body weight was slashed by going with high-strength, military-grade, aluminum alloy. Some of that weight savings was then reinvested where it really counts in a work truck — stronger axles, beefier steering and chassis components, and a fully boxed frame built of over 95 percent high-strength steel. The result is a pickup that’s stronger yet lighter, delivering class-leading* payload and towing.

HIGH-STRENGTH, MILITARY-GRADE, ALUMINUM-ALLOY BODY

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.

FULLY BOXED HIGH-STRENGTH STEEL FRAME

The fully boxed frame is built of over 95 percent high-strength steel with up to 10 crossmembers. It’s 24 times stiffer than the previous frame. The frame is designed to minimize flexing and twisting while maximizing strength and torsional rigidity — and helps Super Duty achieve the highest payload and tow ratings in its class.*

STRONG AXLES

Like the fully boxed high-strength steel frame, the axles are stronger in today’s generation of the Ford Super Duty® pickup. That means greater weight-bearing capability so you can get more done, whether you’re operating an upfit like a snowplow, or hauling big payloads that concentrate more weight on the rear axle. The axles are also designed to handle the best-in-class* 935 lb. ft. of torque of the available 6.7L Power Stroke® Turbo Diesel.

RESPONSIVE RIDE, HANDLING AND STEERING

Today’s Ford Super Duty® is engineered with stronger-than-ever frame and axles for superior load-carrying capability. The suspension and steering components are also stronger, to deliver the responsiveness and control you need while hauling or towing huge loads on the road or at the job site. And the springs are specifically designed to work with the new frame and take advantage of the lighter aluminum-alloy body.

ADVANCETRAC® WITH RSC® AND TRAILER CONTROL 

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.39

LARGEST BRAKES IN CLASS

The components of the four-wheel anti-lock brakes in the F-450 model are the largest in their class* — and for two important reasons. You want them to provide the sure stopping power you expect when you’re out on the job hauling tons of whatever it is that’s riding along with you behind the cab. And you want them to last, because having to replace brakes too often can be a real drag on your bottom line.

OVER 12 MILLION MILES OF TESTING 

We committed this latest generation of the Super Duty® to over 12 million miles of testing, under real and simulated conditions. We also put prototype models in the hands of people like you, working in some of the most demanding industries. Our goal: Build a line of Class 3-5 trucks with extraordinary performance and capability.

ENGINEERING FOR THE EXTREMES

We evaluated the Super Duty® on computers and dynamometers in the lab, then tested it at the proving grounds and on public roads and highways at temperatures from -20 to 120 degrees Fahrenheit. We conducted thermal shocks that swung ambient temperature 250 degrees Fahrenheit in under two minutes, as well as powertrain tests that replicated going up a six-degree grade over 500 miles. We subjected Super Duty to four-post frame twists, gravel, dust, water, salt brine, mud baths and even intentionally tested with worn or broken parts. We’re talking here about extreme conditions that often went far beyond what you would likely encounter on your toughest of jobs.
