Ford continues to be a leader in the truck market in the United States and has the most up-to-date fleet in the industry. Yes, GM and RAM introduced a completely redesigned and lightweight model recently but when some heavy lifting has to be done, Ford is still ahead of rivals when redesigning the Super Duty Series for the 2017 model while others will join all new versions in one or two years. Ford also made several changes to Ford Super Duty 2018 series with new Limited trim and other minor modifications.
