The 2017 Super Duty has been designed by Ford to be a truck ready for any challenge. One of the ways Ford has ensured that this truck can keep working longer is to limit the number of stops drivers have to make at the fuel pump. The 2017 Ford Super Duty fuel tank size has been increased for the new model year.

2017 Super Duty Fuel Tank Capacity

2017 Ford Super Duty models will now come equipped with a 48-gallon fuel tank. A fuel tank of this size is unmatched in the heavy duty pickup class and is 22 percent larger than the fuel tank that was included on the 2016 Super Duty.

Helping the fuel tank out are several weight-saving innovations Ford has made on the 2017 Super Duty. Extensive use of high-strength, military-grade aluminum alloy helps lighten the truck and improve fuel economy. With the larger fuel tank and improved fuel economy, the 2017 Ford Super Duty offers an impressive driving range.

The larger fuel tank will be available on both gasoline and diesel Super Duty models with the long-box Crew Cab configuration. Gasoline models will be powered by a 6.2-liter gasoline engine that offers 385 horsepower and 430 pound-feet of torque. Diesel models come equipped with a new turbocharged 6.7-liter Power Stroke engine that increases the Super Duty’s horsepower rating to 440 and the torque to 925 pound-feet. The diesel engine helps the 2017 Super Duty offer best-in-class towing ratings.
