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, 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.*

CLASS-EXCLUSIVE SOLID FRONT AXLE

Like the fully boxed high-strength steel frame, the axles are stronger in today’s generation of the Ford Super Duty® . And the Super Duty is the only pickup in its class utilizing the solid front axle on all 4x4 models.* The solid axle provides strength and weight-bearing capability for operating an aftermarket front-end upfit like a heavy snowplow.

ADVANCETRAC® WITH RSC® AND TRAILER SWAY 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
F450 brakes are largest in class

LARGEST BRAKES IN CLASS (F-450)

The components of the four-wheel anti-lock brakes in the F-450 model are the largest in their class* — and for a very important reason. 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.

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. Our goal: Build a line of heavy duty pickups with extraordinary performance and capability.
Over 12 million miles of testing for strength and durability
Testing under extreme conditions beyond experienced in normal use

ENGINEERED FOR THE EXTREMES

Super Duty® was tested at temperatures from -20 to 120 degrees. Powertrain tests replicated going up a six-degree grade over 500 miles. Super Duty was also subjected to four-post frame twists, gravel, dust, water, brine, mud baths and even intentionally tested with worn or broken parts. Such extreme conditions often went far beyond what you would likely encounter on your toughest of jobs.
