Ford Updates 2017 F-Series Super Duty With 48 Gallon Tank

| |

For those not satisfied with the recently-launched 2017 Ford F-Series Super Duty, Ford has just added a new fuel tank to the car, giving it the largest fuel capacity of any vehicle in the segment.

The new 48-gallon tank is 22 per cent larger than the 37.5 gallon tank that comes standard in the car and due to the new model's extended wheelbase, fits snugly between the frame and driveshaft.

Ford says that the new fuel tank will particularly help those that use the F-Series Super Duty for work purposes, giving them longer gaps between fill-ups thanks to the improved range. Compared to 2016 models, the aluminum construction of the 2017 car aids further in better fuel economy.

In terms of engines, there are two options for the new car. The standard petrol 6.2-liter V8 has 385 hp and 430 lb-ft of torque on tap while the 6.7-liter diesel V8 delivers 440 hp and an incredible 925 lb-ft, enough torque to split the world in two.

This means that the F-450 SuperCrew 4x4 with a gooseneck hitch can tow up to 32,500 pounds. Insane.
