Size does matter in Seattle - with unwieldy frames demanding an excess of fuel. Their bulky weights strain engines and patience alike, forcing consumers to constantly seek out station pumps. The bigger is better philosophy proves less than budget-friendly.

This is why Ford wishes to deliver a more efficient highway experience - by shedding crucial pounds from its 2017 Super Duty.



As US News reports, the 2017 Super Duty offers a trim new look for winter. Boasting slim aluminum panels, this truck has reduced its overall weight by 350 pounds. While this number seems (at first glance) to be less than impressive, Ford reminds drivers that the loss ensures maximum performance. No longer is the V8 engine burdened by bulky steel components and cast-iron coverings. Instead the entire chassis has been streamlined, providing more effective power distribution.

By reducing its heft - and simultaneously extending its wheelbase to 164.2-inches - the 2017 Super Duty proves ready for every challenge. Its new svelte profile promises increased performance, allowing the engine to achieve up to 400 HP and 925 lb.-ft of torque (a feat that was once impossible when the truck offered a traditional steel construction).

Less truly is more!
