QUESTION OF THE WEEK Thoughts on the Aluminum Next Generation Ford Super Duty?

2017 Ford F-450 Super Duty Platinum Crew Cab 4x4

While we only have a few scant details, we know that the next generation Ford Super Duty pickups will go with an aluminum body design, similar to that used on the new Ford F-150. When the aluminum body was introduced for the half ton trucks, there were a great many critics who questioned the shift away from steel, but after almost a year of 2015 F-150 pickups being sold around the U.S. – there is no apparent downside to the lightweight body construction.

Even though there haven’t been any negative reports from owners of the aluminum F-150, there are surely still skeptics of the new aluminum body on the next generation Super Duty pickups and that brings us to our Question of the Week.

Simply put, what are your thoughts on the new aluminum body of the next gen Ford Super Duty pickups?  Click here to head into the forum to toss in your two cents!
