Ford has tested the 2017 F-Series Super Duty truck to ensure that it can perform while equipped with popular aftermarket equipment fitted to its cargo box. 

The remained sturdy after being put through extreme durability on- and off-road terrain testing, including overloading select equipment. Upon completing the challenge, the vehicles were examined in the lab. No concerns were found in either the supporting structure or the mounting surfaces, according to Ford.

The new Super Duty is made with high-strength, military-grade, aluminum alloy that's more dent- and ding-resistant than the outgoing steel cargo box and not subject to red rust corrosion.

The vehicle uses a fully boxed frame that's composed of more than 95% high-strength steel. It's up to 24 times stiffer than the previous frame. The new truck line also features heavier-duty four-wheel-drive components, driveline, axles, and towing hardware than the current Super Duty.

The 2017 Super Duty will be built at Kentucky Truck Plant, and goes on sale late next year.
