Today, Ford Motor Company announced that production of the 2017 Ford Super Duty chassis cab has been added to the automaker’s Ohio Assembly Plant in Avon Lake. That includes the F-350, F-450, and F-550, in regular and crew cab configurations.

The Ohio Assembly Plant joins Ford’s Kentucky Truck Plant in producing the new, 2017 Ford Super Duty chassis cab. For the new, fourth generation of the heavy duty truck, Ford engineers have designed a lighter-weight body made of military-grade aluminum alloy, which contributes to weight savings of up to 350 pounds. As before, the frame is made of high-strength steel, making the 2017 Ford Super Duty plenty strong where it counts, despite the drop in weight. Engine options include a base 6.2-liter V8, a 6.8-liter V10, and a turbocharged 6.7-liter Power Stroke diesel V8.

“Super Duty chassis cabs are the number one trusted choice of tradespeople and fleet customers, from utility companies to construction firms,” says Ford Director of North American Fleet, Lease and Remarketing Operations Kevin Koswick. “The all-new Super Duty will help these customers keep the lights on, deliver supplies and build a better world for their customers.”
