Yee’haw, the State Fair of Texas is underway. That means tons of truck news because Texas is the largest pickup truck market in the country. For something so big, Ford is pulling out all the stops by announcing the most-luxurious Super Duty ever. Ladies and gentlemen, meet the 2018 Ford Super Duty Limited.

Only available in four-wheel drive an the 6.7L Power Stroke diesel, the Limited is basically what you get when you combine a Mercedes-Benz with your work truck. As with the F-150 Limited, going Limited on Super Duty is like checking most of the option boxes. Nearly everything is standard equipment.

Check out the official press release, including pricing, in the press release below, and also check out the photo gallery of the new Super Duty Limited.

New Benchmark of Success: New Ford F-Series Super Duty Limited Sets Bar for Luxury, Technology

  • 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 4×4 $80,835
  • F-350 Super Duty Limited 4×4 $82,010
  • F-450 Super Duty Limited 4×4 $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.
