At an event this month in Denver, Colo., Fleet Equipment was given the opportunity for extensive test drives of Ford’s new 2017 Super Duty. The 2017 edition of the Super Duty is the first that the company has designed from the ground up in 18 years. FE Associate Editor Alex Crissey took the new trucks for a spin on the mountainous routes of Colorado, and snapped a few choice pictures with the truck at the beautiful Eldorado Canyon State Park. Enjoy the photos, and information about next year’s Super Duty line, below:
