As the market for high-priced, luxurious pickup trucks continues to grow, Ford has been quick to follow the money, nudging the price ceiling on its ever-popular F-Series truck family further upward to capitalize on buyers who want a bit of premium veneer and cow hide with their towing/hauling machines. The latest instance of this is the new Ford F-Series Super Duty Limited, introduced last week at the Texas State Fair. It slots in above the Platinum, taking the F-Series Super Duty to all-new heights with regard to luxury, technology, and MSRP.
As a matter of fact, the Ford F-450 Super Duty Limited 4×4 now holds the title as the most expensive volume-production truck from an American manufacturer, being possibly the first to push past the $100,000 barrier when fully-loaded. The base MSRP sits at a sizable $87,100; throw in all the fixin’s, and that figure swells to $94,455, which works out to more than $100k when taxes and licensing fees are included.
For the money, you get the same 925-lb-ft, 6.7-liter Power Stroke diesel available with the rest of the range, a world-class interior, and such goodies as heated and ventilated front seats, a 360-degree camera, adaptive cruise control, adaptive steering, and a big, panoramic sunroof. Because if you’ve got the cash, why not haul your trailer in absolute comfort?
