2018 Ford Super Duty Limited Starting at $80,000 is the Most Expensive Production Pickup Truck Ever
It’s mighty close to the $100,000 mark
Published October 3, 2017
Although expensive pickup trucks are hardly a novelty, Blue Oval has elevated this concept to an entirely different level when they introduced the F-150 Limited last year. Now, they’ve finally distributed the Limited badge across the rest of the lineup. Ford Super Duty lineup, that is. And new kings of luxury in the pickup truck world will cost you an arm and a leg. And, likely one of the kidneys as well.
F-250 Super Duty Limited starts from $80,835. That’s almost $20,000 more than the current range-topping F-250 Platinum which starts at $62,310. That’s almost $50,000 more than the entry-level F-250 XL which costs at least $32,535. In other words, that’s quite a lot of money for a truck that still won’t do your laundry, cook for you or tidy up around the house.
And Ford’s greed doesn’t stop there. For $82,010, you can have the F-350 Super Duty Limited, while F-450 in the same trim level starts from staggering $87,100. Tick off every single option box and Ford Super Duty Limited should cost you exactly $94,455.
So, what do these highly overpriced behemoths actually offer, aside from the obvious? For starters, they all come with $8,795 worth of 6.7L Power Stroke Turbo Diesel V8 powerplant which develops as much as 440 hp and enormous 925 lb-ft of torque. They’re only available in all-wheel drive configuration either with a single or a dually rear wheels. Then, there’s a host of tech features you won’t get as standard otherwise. Sync 3 infotainment system, a surround-view camera, adaptive cruise control, adaptive steering, forward-collision warning, lane-departure warning, lane-keeping assist, heated and cooled seats, and a heated steering wheel are just some of the amenities that come with that Limited badge.
These are joined by custom Camelback two-tone leather seats which flank correspondingly furbished armrests. Dashboard too gets away with a combo of leather and ash-wood trim. You’ll know a Ford Super Duty Limited by its unique satin chrome grille and corresponding tailgate treatment. Ford aims at the accomplished small towable yacht owners and CEOs of construction and contracting businesses as Super Duty Platinum’s buyers. How many of them are willing to buy a pickup truck as their daily ride, is for Ford to figure. All we know is that the most luxurious and advanced pickup truck comes at a hefty price. Unjustifiably hefty, I dare say.
