Putting Ford’s 2017 Super Duty to the test

From virtual torture testing in supercomputers to purpose-built potholes, Ford has tough tested its all-new Super Duty to make sure it’s ready for popular aftermarket cargo box equipment – ranging from glass racks to salt spreaders.

“Ford Super Duty customers depend on their trucks to work hard every day across a variety of jobs,” said Kirk Leonard, vehicle integration engineer for Ford. “We drove prototype vehicles over the durability roads of the Ford Proving Grounds fitted with common aftermarket accessories to test the fitment and capability of our toughest pickup box ever.“

Ford also announced it will create 2,000 new jobs and invest $1.3 billion in its Kentucky Truck Plant to support the launch of the 2017 Ford F-Series Super Duty truck. The Super Duty will be built at Kentucky Truck Plant and goes on sale late next year. (All photos courtesy of Ford Motor Company)
