The body of Ford’s 2017 F-Series Super Duty trucks is made from military-grade aluminum alloy that Ford says is more dent-resistant than steel it replaces. Mounted on a new, high-strength steel frame, the alloys help reduce curb weight by up to 350 lbs. for better fuel efficiency. 

Up to seven cameras on board help drivers see more angles, monitor conditions 360 degrees around the truck, and make maneuvering trailers easier.

Adaptive steering reduces necessary steering input at low speed and dampens steering sensitivity at higher speeds.

Adaptive cruise control and collision warning with brake support use sensors to detect slower vehicles moving in the same direction.  If another vehicle is too close, red lights flash on the windshield and a warning sound chimes. If the driver does not hit the brakes, the brake system is pre-charged to stop faster when the brake pedal is pressed
