    NEW BENCHMARK OF SUCCESS: NEW FORD F-SERIES SUPER DUTY LIMITED SETS BAR FOR LUXURY, TECHNOLOGY
    SEP 28, 2017 | DALLAS
    [​IMG]

    The F-450 Limited delivers technology and comfort previously reserved only in premium flagship sedans, and it’s capable enough to tow more than 30,000 lbs.

    • Ford again establishes new top-end for trucks with the new Super Duty Limited, specially tailored for high-end heavy-duty truck customers – from boat captains to captains of industry
    • Custom touches – inside and out – come standard on Limited, along with Super Duty capability and smart tech
    • Ford continues offering a heavy-duty pickup truck for every customer – from work-ready F-250 XL starting at $32,890 to top-of-the-line F-450 Limited starting at $87,100
    DALLAS, Sept. 28, 2017 – Ford – America’s truck leader – today pulls off the wraps 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 Limited delivers technology and comfort previously reserved only in premium flagship sedans, and it’s capable enough to tow more than 30,000 lbs. – about the weight of a stealthy 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”

    Starting MSRPs (including $1,295 destination; taxes and fees not included) are:

    • F-250 Super Duty Limited 4x4 $80,835
    • F-350 Super Duty Limited 4x4 $82,010
    • F-450 Super Duty Limited 4x4 $87,100
    Customers who check every option box can top one out for as much as $94,455.

    What’s the point?

    “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.

    Most Super Duty tech ever

    Beyond the hand-crafting, Super Duty Limited comes standard with advanced and innovative features to get the job done on ranches, in marinas and everywhere in between. This includes:

    • Class-exclusive high-definition 360-degree camera with Trailer Reverse Guidance
    • Class-exclusive SYNC® 3
    • Class-exclusive BLIS® with trailer coverage
    • Class-exclusive adaptive cruise control
    • Class-exclusive adaptive steering
    • Lane-keeping alert
    • Forward collision warning with brake support
    • Class-exclusive flat rear load floor with fold-up locking storage
    • Class-exclusive quad-beam LED headlamps
    • Full panoramic moonroof with retractable shade
    • Heated and ventilated front seats, plus heated rear seats
    • Leather-trimmed, heated steering wheel
    Is Ford backing away from heavy-duty truck buyers with fewer greenbacks? No way!

    Ford has a heavy-duty pickup truck for every customer – from work-ready F-250 XL starting at $32,890 to top-of-the-line F-450 Limited starting at $87,100.

    Super Duty Limited crew cab arrives this winter with Ford’s 6.7-liter Power Stroke® diesel V8 across F-250, F-350 and F-450 single- or dual-rear-wheel configurations.

    Still no heated steering wheel, just a leather upgrade. No 6 seat option. Also, I would not want that panoramic roof that could possibly leak. Pass on that. Happy with my '16 Lariat 6.7 with 6 seats.

    I promise you a '17 Lariat 6.7 is 10x's the truck your '16 is.

    What do you mean by 6 seats?

    I already had a customer call in and wants to trade his '17 F-450 King Ranch for one lol

    I think the F-450 is the best looking version of the new Duty. The truck is so slab-sided that it looks a little weird without the wider front and rear axles to break up the lines.

    I agree in dually form... but I really like the look of the SRWs.

    I have yet to see a factory SRW that I really like. I miss the old FX4 package from 2008-09.

    A lift, wheels and tires makes all the difference.

    I'd rather have it just look better from the factory.

    "Damn nice, but costs more than twice as much as my first house."

    Lol.....me too Brad. It seems like most all of the vehicles I would want today are more $$$ than I paid for my home. Even the high optioned Platinum model is high.

    Ford had this truck on Fox news this morning. No question its a beautiful truck and the seats will give you a massage...lol....but 95K....No.

    First impression is, it's freaking gorgeous. The dually's in the 17's are by far my favorite. I am curious to how the competition is going to respond now. The denali hd's are a close 2nd favorite of mine in the diesel world. Can't wait to see what they come out with. Too bad I won't be able to afford either one until they've depreciated over half of their asking price in 15 years lol.

    the exterior of the platinum model looks better. Other than mild interior enhancements and leather the truck above looks like a lariat model.

    but i dont doubt they will sell every one of them. Might as well charge a cool 100k for it. This market doesnt seem to have a price ceiling. Most of these will be written off on taxes anyways...

    These prices just make me think that now is the time for a new Excursion. They could probably steal some Escalade sales.

    ive been preaching that for years. There's 2 companies that are converting 11-16 superduties to excursions and they make some major bank.

    Custom autos by tim in oklahoma has some nice ones. They look OEM quality.
