Super Duty Chassis Cab

Like Super Duty Pickups, the all-new 2017 Super Duty Chassis Cab is engineered to deliver what matters most to customers: reliability, durability and excellent towing capability!

What’s NEW for Chassis Cab: In addition to sharing an all-new exterior design and redesigned cabs, these workhorses receive and share many significant updates with Pickup models. New or enhanced features include:

  • All-new frame that’s made of more than 95% high-strength steel. It’s fully boxed under the cab. The C-channel design behind the cab is for the easier addition of aftermarket vocational bodies (e.g., dump, wrecker, utility).
  • High-strength, military-grade aluminum-alloy body
  • Upgraded driveline improvements. This supports a higher maximum Gross Combination Weight Rating (GCWR). It also helps with payload and towing capacities.
  • There is a new larger braking system as well. This will be the for F-350 DRW, F-450 and F-550.
  • It comes with AdvanceTrac with RSC (Roll Stability Control) and trailer sway control. These features are now standard on F-450 and F-550
  • It also has an Increased Front Gross Axle Weight Rating (GAWR).

Upgrading The Lift: It doesn’t matter if you’re talking dump up-fits, service bodies or platforms. You can use equipment boxes, add a wrecker or turn it into a fire or rescue truck. The Super Duty Chassis Cab will feature:
