Ford Motor Company recently pulled the wraps off of a new F-Series Super Duty Limited that sets new luxury standards for high-end heavy-duty truckers.
With pricing at $87,100, the F-450 (DRW) Limited delivers technology and comfort previously reserved only in premium flagship sedans. More impressively, the F-450 4×4 with the 6.7-liter Power Stoke diesel can haul 5,320 pounds, one of the highest payload figures in the industry, and tow 30,000 pounds, about the weight of a U.S Air Force F-35 fighter plane.
“The Super Duty lineup is a win for all of our customers, from successful ranchers to contractors to RV owners” said Todd Eckert, Ford Truck group marketing manager. “Super Duty Limited is the most luxurious and advanced heavy-duty pickup truck ever created by Ford for accomplished buyers with appetites for the high life and hard-earned dollars to match”
“There are heavy-duty truck customers who need Super Duty-level capability and want true luxury,” Eckert said. “We created this new truck to answer the call for even more premium choices in the Super Duty range as we see more and more truck customers trending to more premium models.”
More than 50 percent of the Super Duty lineup’s retail sales this year are high-end models—including Lariat, King Ranch and Platinum series. Limited goes even further.
“Imagine opening the door to your humidor and sinking into your favorite leather lounge chair—that’s the sensation new Super Duty Limited inspires,” said Ford design manager Aileen Barraza.
Custom Camelback two-tone leather seats, premium stitched leather-wrapped steering wheel, armrests and instrument panel, Miko suede headliner, hand-finished dark ash wood trim, special badging set the interior apart. Outside, a special twin-bar satin grille with chrome accents, quad-beam LED lights and satin-finished tailgate applique are Limited’s unique calling cards. Each Limited also has a dedicated serial number laser-etched on the center console armrest.
