The 2017 Ford Super Duty has raised much hype ever since it was spotted in Michigan during a test drive.

Seeing the interest that this full sized pickup truck has already evoked in truck lovers, there is no doubt it is going to rule the market if it turns out according to the rising expectation.

However, we have enlisted some of its features which prospective buyers can look forward to!
2017 Ford Super Duty: Redesign Exterior and Interior
Sources reveal that this revolutionary 2017 Ford Super Duty truck is being highly inspired by the Ford F-150. Yes, it is going to be redesigned with reference to Ford F-150, both inside out and therefore, it wouldn’t be very wrong to think of this new 2017 Ford Super Duty as a supersized F-150. Since the F-150 model was itself based on super duty trucks, these changes should be just in place and not too stark, but only pleasantly surprising.
The very basic change that this full sized truck is undergoing is with respect to its material. Like F-150, it is switching to an aluminum body frame which would cause a remarkable reduction in its weight, causing it to shred as much as 1000 lbs. The resultant truck would be significantly lightweight and hence will provide better fuel economy along with improved towing capacity. It is going to gain better aero efficiency with an alteration in its otherwise strict and boxy stature.
2017 Ford Super Duty is also going to be influenced by the F-150’s style and therefore, some of its designing is also going to change to make it look more attractive. Some of these changes would include a different fascia than its previous model in the front with an enormous trademark grille. Expect a makeover for its LED headlights and its tail lights will also be modified. Its interior will have sufficient storage space for a full sized pickup truck.

Its fuel economy hasn’t been ascertained yet, but it is obviously improving!
