American automaker Ford Motor Company's all-new 2017 F-Series Super Duty comes with more capability and improved capability, thanks to the addition of a massive 48-gallon fuel tank, which aims to maximize time between fill-ups to allow for more time getting the job done.
The all-new long-box Crew Cab's longer wheelbase and wider track, the new tank fits between frame and driveshaft. It is 22 percent larger than the 2016 diesel-equipped Super Duty's 37.5-gallon tank and 37 percent larger than the 2016 gas engine's 35-gallon tank. Along with improved fuel economy enabled by light-weighting through the use of high-strength, military-grade aluminum alloy, the all-new Super Duty's range increases significantly.
Adding to that range is a larger-capacity diesel exhaust fluid tank for Power Stroke-equipped Super Duty - up 2.5 gallons from the 2016 truck to 7.5 gallons for 2017. An improved fuel filter and water separator filter allow for longer change intervals to minimize time and money spent on maintenance, allowing Super Duty more time on the road getting the job done.
"We want to give our customers a more productive tool for getting the most out of their trucks," said Brian Rathsburg, Super Duty marketing manager. "This means less downtime at the fuel pump and performing routine maintenance, and more time on the job."
The all-new Super Duty is available fall 2016.
