2017 Ford F-Series Super Duty HD Torture Test Sessions – Spy Photos And Video
The Ford Super Duty line of trucks was launched by Ford back in 1998. This line of trucks is about vehicles over 8,500 lb GVWR. The production is separated for the different models in this line. For example, we have the F-250 to F-550 Super Duties models being assembled at the Kentucky Truck Plant in Louisville, Kentucky. On the other hand the larger trucks like F-650 and F-750 were manufactured at the Blue Diamond Truck plant in Mexico up to 2014. After that the assemble process takes place at Avon Lake, Ohio.
The Ford Super Duty line of trucks was created with the intention for much higher payload and towing capacities. Everything related to this trucks is larger and heavier. When we said larger, we really meant it – the springs, the brakes, the axles, the frames, the transmissions, the engines are more powerful. Everything is different when it comes to the Ford Super Duty series. A couple of years ago that line was under investigation by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration. The issue – steering failures.
Everything came from the fact that a conversion from a two-wheel-drive model to a four-wheel-drive model is very easy and there are no differences between the F-350 chassis cab, F-450 and F-550 frames. In the end of the investigation, the results had nothing to do with the design, it was all due to driver errors. A week ago Ford unveiled the next fourth generation Super Duty at the 2015 State Fair of Texas. Everything is all new here. The new 2017 Super Duty frame is made from 95% high strength steel and the body is made from aluminum.
