The smartest Super Duty® ever.

The 2017 Super Duty is our toughest and strongest heavy-duty pickup ever. It's also our smartest Super Duty, making life for you on the job easier and more productive with an all-new redesigned cab plus a host of newly available technologies. Among them are BLIS® (Blind Spot Information System) with Cross-Traffic Alert and Trailer Tow, Trailer Reverse Guidance, and SYNC® 3 — optional features you can get on any Super Duty from the base XL to the top-of-the-line Platinum.
Wide applications of new camera technology

New Cameras

New optional cameras* enhance visibility for on-site tasks. Tailgate camera. High-definition 180/360-degree cameras displaying all sides of the truck. Class-exclusive** Trailer Reverse Guidance with visual guides along both sides for an enhanced view of where the trailer is going. Customer-placed rear trailer camera. And center high-mount stop lamp camera for viewing the pickup bed, helpful when hooking up to a 5th-wheel or gooseneck hitch.

New speed-responsive Adaptive Steering System

Class-Exclusive Adaptive Steering System

The class-exclusive* new Adaptive Steering System adjusts the steering ratio in response to vehicle speed. It adapts automatically to the driving situation, whether you're doing a low-speed maneuver like parking or backing up a trailer, or traveling at cruising speed on the highway. At lower speeds, the steering ratio increases, requiring fewer turns of the steering wheel — and less steering effort. At higher speeds, the steering ratio gradually decreases, effecting a steering feel that is firmer and more controlled.
Blind spot detection for both truck and trailer

Class-Exclusive BLIS® with Cross-Traffic Alert and Trailer Tow

Available BLIS (Blind Spot Information System) with Cross-Traffic Alert and Trailer Tow is now offered on the new Super Duty® and is a class-exclusive* feature. BLIS® signals you in the outside mirror when a vehicle is detected in a blind spot — and provides coverage for the truck you're driving as well as the trailer you're towing. The cross-traffic alert feature (truck only) can detect a vehicle passing behind when you're slowly backing out of a driveway or parking place.10

Six available factory-installed upfitter switches in overhead console

Six Upfitter Switches

Available factory-installed auxiliary upfitter switches now total six (up from four). The system includes two 40-amp switches (ignition on or off) plus four 25-amp switches (ignition on). What's more, the switches with fuses and associated relays are integrated into the new overhead console/storage compartment. Upfitter switches are a convenient way to connect a variety of aftermarket accessories (such as a winch, lights, strobes, 2-way radio) to the vehicle's electrical system. They're factory-installed, so there's no need to cut into the truck's electrical system when installing accessories.
Lane Departure Warning and Adaptive Cruise Control now available

Advanced headlamp systems available

Quad-Beam Headlamps/Taillamps

It's a huge advantage that quad dual-beam halogen headlamps are a class-exclusive* standard feature on the 2017 Super Duty®. The upper and lower headlamps provide both low- and high-beam outputs, with the combined four low beams producing more light output than the high beams on previous Super Duty models. And the technology doesn't stop here. Super Duty goes even further by offering optional quad-beam LED headlamps/taillamps with their intense brightness, efficiency and durability.

Versatile rear seat storage in SuperCab and Crew Cab models
