2017 Ford Super Duty now better and strongest than ever

2016 Ford Super Duty Truck available at Gresham Ford


Gresham Ford has sold trucks since 1942 but none of them has been quite like the new 2017 Ford Super Duty Work Truck.  This is the TOUGHEST Work Truck that Ford has ever built.  With an all new high strength steel frame and a military grade aluminum alloy body the structure of the Ford Work Truck is already a segment first but Ford didn't stop there.  The axles, springs and suspension are also stronger providing even more strength to those who depend upon their commercial vehicles to make a living.  Built Ford Tough is not just a saying at Ford - it's a strategy from the ground up to ensure that we help keep America Strong.  

Ford Motor Company has worked hard to provide not just bells and whistles but tools that enable Business Owners to maximize the time they spend in their vehicles.  The 2017 Ford Super Duty provides sixteen class-exclusive new features that include up to 7 cameras that help make towing and maneuvering easier and safer than ever.  The adaptive steering technology separates the Ford work truck from others like the Dodge Ram or the Chevy Silverado.  You can feel the difference when you take one for a drive.  There is a reason that more than half of the commercial work trucks across America are Ford Super Duty trucks and vans.  Ford is also different because they have built these vehicles from the ground up.  Both the gasoline and diesel engines and transmissions of the 2016 Ford Super Duty Work Truck are produced directly by Ford Motor Company.  You will also find that the Ford Super Duty tows and hauls more than ever before in addition to all of the other advantages over other work trucks.  

2017 Ford Super Duty Tailgate Step available at Gresham FordFord shared this week, during it's unveiling of the all new 2017 F-Series Super Duty, that even 
though the Super Duty is America's best selling heavy duty commercial work truck - they don't take it for granted.   Ford has continued to increase the benchmarks for capability, performance and efficiency as they developed smart technology to better serve those who depend upon their work trucks to make a living.

Ford Motor Company has worked hard to improve on a truck that many commercial truck owners already love.  One of the reasons is a fully boxed frame that is stronger and holds up better than many other work trucks.  This high strength steel frame is now up to 24 times stiffer than on previous Super Duty Ford trucks and helps to add to the increased towing and hauling abilities previously mentioned.  If you need a four-wheel drive work vehicle, you will also be pleased to know that the 2017 Ford Super Duty provides even heavier duty driveline, axles and towing hardware to better serve our commercial customers.

Following the lead of the Ford F-150, the Super Duty starting with the 2017 model year will include the military grade aluminum alloy.  Ford has upgraded to the aluminum because it is far more dent resistant than the previous steel body and lighter too.  We don't experience it a lot in the Gresham Portland area but the aluminum is also resistant to corrosion from red rust.  Everyone is benefiting from the weight loss of the upgraded alloy.  The weight reduction of just over 350 lbs provides an increased towing and hauling capacity as well as fuel savings.
