While pickup truck prices have been rising, the sticker on Ford's newest F-450 raises the bar to a record high.
The 2018 Ford F-450 Super Duty Limited 4X4 will start at $87,100 and will climb to $94,455 for those who select every possible option. Add in tax, title and license fees and some F-450 buyers could wind up paying more than $100,000.
"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," said Todd Eckert, Ford truck group marketing manager.
What will buyers get for spending as much on a truck as they could on a high-end luxury sedan or sports car?
The capability to tow more than 30,000 pounds wrapped in the latest technology and luxury features like Custom Camelback two-tone leather seats, a premium stitched leather-wrapped steering wheel, along with the armrests and instrument panel.
"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.
