Spy shots of the camouflaged prototypes of the 2016 model year have been leaked on the internet. These shots have revealed much resemblance with the (already on production) 2015 model on the exterior. From reports presented to the media, the body of the upcoming Ford Super Duty truck is expected to be produced out of aluminum. The aluminum body frames and panels have already been seen on the Ford F-150, so the manufacturer decided to follow this route. The body frames are expected to be beefier on the 2016 Ford Super Duty truck than the base Ford F-150 though.

In the interior not much can be said, but most of the 2015 model year accessories are to be carried over to the 2016 Ford Super Duty. Although, the timing of the prototypes seemed to early and too sudden which could suggest that Ford may be planning a newer generation of the Super Duty trucks to accommodate their aluminum chassis and body frames. This will bring an even more enticing Super Duty interior, where most luxury accessories will be introduced to the trucks, and as usual the crew cab configuration gets the best offered on this.
