Ford has begun shipping all configurations of its redesigned 2017 Super Duty trucks that will arrive with higher-strength frames and lighter-weight bodies, a company spokesman has confirmed.

The trucks have begun shipping to dealers, said Mike Levine, a Ford North America product communications manager.

Ford is revamping its 2017 F-250 through F-550 trucks by incorporating weight-saving aluminum body panels similar to the 2015 F-150 redesign. The cargo beds, front fenders and hoods will be aluminum.

Ford announced earlier this month the 2017 F-250 through F-550 SuperCabs and SuperCrews would share cabs with the F-150 in a move that provides more interior room.

The move to aluminum on the Super Duty lineup will save about 350 pounds compared to as much as 750 pounds saved by moving the F-150 to aluminum. Ford engineers added heavier frames to the Super Duty trucks.
