Ford announced it’s pushing the upper limits of truckdom with a new range-topping F-Series trim, the 2018 Super Duty Limited, which, in F-450 spec, can clear $100,000 and make your wallet that much lighter.
The automaker said in a press release it was simply responding to customer demand: more than half of its current Super Duty sales are of the high-end Lariat, King Ranch, and Platinum trims, so it’s quite apparent pickup buyers are looking to spend more to get more out of premium big rigs.
The F-250 trim Super Duty Limited will start at $80,835 US; the F-350 at $82,010 US; and the F-450 at $87,100. With all options boxes checked, the F-450 Super Duty Limited tops out at about $94,455 US. While Canadian sale prices haven’t been released, that last number converts to about $116,000 CDN.
For the money, you get a level of luxury “previously reserved only in premium flagship sedans,” boasts the press release, plus a tow capacity of about 30,000 lbs.
More specifically, Limited trim trucks will come with two-tone heated and vented front leather seats; heated rear seats; a premium leather-wrapped steering wheel; suede headliner; hand-finished ash wood trim; a unique grille and tailgate; a 360-degree camera; adaptive cruise control; adaptive steering; lane-keep alert; forward collision warning; LED headlamps; and a panoramic moonroof.
All Limited trucks will come with Ford’s 6.7-liter Power Stroke diesel V8 and in 4×4 spec; single or dual rear wheels are optional.
The Ford F-Series Super Duty Limited made its debut in Dallas, Texas, but believe it or not, per capita, Canadians are bigger truck enthusiasts than our counterparts south of the border, with Ford’s F-150 being far and away the best-selling vehicle in Canada.
That means you should more than likely expect to see a few Limiteds up here, too, when the luxo-trucks go on sale later this winter.
