Did you catch that the new 2017 Ford Super Duty pickup trucks now have more fuel capacity, which will translate into much longer distances between fill-ups? Here's how Ford has staggered the three sizes of fuel tanks — 29, 34 and 48 gallons — now offered.
- Long-bed regular-cab and short-bed or long-bed SuperCab Super Dutys equipped with the gas engine get the 34-gallon tank.
- Long-bed regular-cab and long-bed or short-bed SuperCab Super Dutys equipped with a new Power Stroke diesel engine get the 29-gallon fuel tank and the larger 7.5-gallon diesel exhaust fluid tank. Short-bed crew-cab Super Dutys (160-inch wheelbase) with the diesel get the 34-gallon fuel tank and 7.5-gallon DEF tank.
- The big news for the heavy-duty segment is that a Super Duty crew cab with the 8-foot bed (F-250, F-350 or F-450) comes standard with a class-leading 48-gallon fuel tank when equipped with either a gas or diesel engine.
And if offering larger fuel tanks isn't a big enough draw to lure prospective buyers to dealerships, Ford has embarked on a nationwide tour with the new Super Dutys. During stops at 14 cities now through Nov. 13 (Ford says more events may be added), Ford will have Super Dutys and competitive vehicles on hand for visitors to drive, empty and loaded, on test tracks. Ford also will offer demonstrations of the new features on 2017 Super Dutys.
