The 2017 year-model is the first of the company’s F-Series Super Duty class to utilize the lighter material, which will make the 2017 model up to 350 pounds lighter than its predecessor, according to a news release.

The 2017 F-Series Super Duty pickup truck and chassis cab feature segment-exclusive smart technology to help increase customer productivity, comfort and convenience, the company said.

“As we remove weight, we’re making Super Duty more productive by giving our customers better towing and payload capability,” said Craig Schmatz, Super Duty chief engineer. “We’re backing up improved capability with a stronger gasoline and diesel Super Duty engine lineup.”
