Weight Matters

When towing loads and gear to job sites, weight matters. Ford has built off the success of introducing aluminum to the body and bed of the F-150, and for the first time the 2017 Ford F-550 Super Duty sees its own bed and body upgraded to aluminum alloy. The 2017 Ford F-550 for sale in Pittsburgh now uses military grade aluminum alloy which is incredibly strong and durable, while removing up to 350 lbs from the F-550 over the 2016 model. A lighter trucks means a more efficient truck, giving you much better fuel efficiency than the competition. Ford has strengthened the new 2017 Ford F-550 Super Duty’s box considerably by using 95 percent high grade steel, making it 24 times stiffer than before.


“High-strength steel framerails are boxed at the back of the cab before transitioning to C-channel the rest of the way for easy upfitting, and additional crossmembers are added for big increases in strength. Just as it is with the rest of the Super Duty lineup, the chassis cab also benefits from aluminum body construction and a number of features that are available in the pickup.” –  TruckTrend

Built to Tow

Ford’s 2017 F-550 Super Duty was built to tow.

The F-550 has a class-leading maximum load capacity of 7,630 lbs for the 2017 model. Even more impressive is the F-550’s ability to tow a maximum of 32,500 pounds with a gooseneck trailer (thanks to the stiffened box), which is 1,300 lbs more than the 2016 model. Of course, towing a heavy load is only half the battle. The Adaptive Steering feature on the 2017 F-550 Super Duty can reduce the amount of wheel input needed during low-speed operations, while it reduces sensitivity to steering input when towing at higher speeds. For 2017 available adaptive cruise control with automatic braking, in-cab tire-pressure monitoring and lane-departure warning features appear on the F-550 Super Duty for the first time.


Up to seven cameras are available on the 2017 Ford F-550 Super Duty, making it a breeze to back up and connect a trailer then keep a watchful eye on the load during transit. The blind-spot warning system with trailer tow modifies its warning to account for the length of the trailer. The 2017 Ford F-550 Super Duty also comes with Ford’s latest Sync 3 infotainment and an 8.0-inch screen that makes monitoring all those cameras a snap.



Ford has three powerful engine options for the 2017 F-550 Super Duty for sale in Pittsburgh. The first is the 6.7-liter turbodiesel Power Stroke V8 that still puts out 440 horsepower, but  the torque increases to 925 pound-feet of torque – up from 860 lb-ft in the 2016 model. The second is the 6.2-liter gas V8 which also receives an increase in torque – from 405 lb-ft to a class-leading 430 lb-ft. Last but not least is the 6.8-liter gas V10 putting out an impressive 424 lb-ft of torque.


“This is the best heavy-duty truck we’ve ever made, says Doug Scott, Ford truck marketing manager. “We listened to our customers and created the toughest, smartest and most capable Super Duty ever.”
