The beastly F-350 Super Duty benefits from the same complete overhaul that visited the F-150 last year. Ford's bruiser offers more technology and capability than ever before, as well as an all-new aluminum body.

2017 Ford F-350 Overview
What's New for 2017
The F-350 Super Duty has been completely redesigned.
Choosing Your Ford F-350
The standard 6.2-liter V8 puts out 385 horsepower, the same as last year, but torque has increased from 405 to 430 pound-feet. The optional 440-horsepower 6.7-liter turbodiesel V8 gets an even bigger boost in torque, from 860 to 925 pound-feet. As before, both engines come with a six-speed automatic transmission and your choice of two- or four-wheel drive. Dual rear wheels are also offered for enhanced towing and payload capacity.
Models equipped with the 6.2-liter can tow up to 16,300 pounds. That figure jumps to 21,500 pounds with the turbodiesel under the hood. When equipped with dual rear wheels, turbodiesel models are rated to pull up to 32,000 pounds.
Payload capacity ranges from 4,470–7,630 pounds, depending on the configuration. Dual-wheel models with rear-wheel drive can haul the most.
As usual, you have a choice of three cab styles: the three-person Regular Cab; the Super Cab with rear-hinged access doors and a full-width backseat; and the Crew Cab with full-size rear doors and more legroom in back. All cabs offer more legroom and headroom this year.
The Regular Cab comes only with a long (8-foot) bed, which is optional on the others in place of the standard 6.8-foot bed. Models equipped with the long bed carry a new 48-gallon gas tank for extended range. A removable locking tailgate with lift assist is standard across the board.
Underneath is a beefier frame made of high-strength steel. However, the body itself is now aluminum, so the F-350 is up to 350 lighter than before.
Trim levels range from basic to plush:
The newly available Ultimate Trailer Tow Camera System uses a network of seven cameras to provide panoramic views. Two of the cameras are specifically designed to assist with trailer hitching. In addition to that, you can order a Trailer Reserve Guidance System, which provides on-screen steering directions when backing up with a trailer, as well as a jackknife alert.
Many of the features found on the King Ranch and Platinum are optional on the lower trims, so you don't have to pay for scads of luxury to get the equipment you want. If your task list includes frequent towing at highway speeds, the turbodiesel engine is a worthy upgrade. You'll be amazed by how effortlessly it propels loads through grades and passing maneuvers.
