The new GM33’s modern design is complemented by the 2017 F-550’s new front cab, which features a sleek, aerodynamic profile and redesigned grill. Furthermore, Ford’s new 2017 F-550 chassis features an all-new, fully boxed under-cab and C-channel aft-of-cab frame made of 95 percent high-strength steel with up to 10 crossmembers (8 through-welded). Torsional rigidity is eight times greater than the previous design.
Connected to this new frame is a high-strength, military-grade, aluminum alloy body, which is lighter than the steel previously used yet is immensely strong. It’s also more dent and ding-resistant and not subject to red rust corrosion. This supplements Grech Motors’ riveted, aircraft-grade aluminum skin.
In addition to its stronger body and frame, the 2017 Ford F-550 chassis also features a suspension, brakes, driveline, transfer case, and axles that are larger and heftier for greater strength and capability. The components of the four-wheel anti-lock brakes feature the largest rotors in class, which increases longevity and maximizes stopping power.
