2017 Ford F-250 Super Duty 2

By now, you know the 2017 Ford Super Duty is going to have a lightweight aluminum body, more technology, and more capabilities. You also know that “new and improved” usually means “more expensive than it used to be.”

Given the latest info from Car and Driver, that appears to be the case with the 2017 F-250 Super Duty. Its prices are going up.

Five trim levels will be available on the next-generation F-250: XL, XLT, Lariat, King Ranch, and Platinum. So will three body styles (regular, SuperCab, and Crew Cab), two- and four-wheel drive, and two engine options. The 6.2-liter gas V8 and six-speed auto combo will be standard; Ford will charge $8,595 for the 6.7-liter turbodiesel Power Stroke V8.

On the last rung of the F-250 pricing ladder, the XL Regular Cab’s base price is increasing by $150 to $33,730. That’ll get you two doors and an eight-foot bed. Four-wheel drive costs $2,795. An extra $915 buys the Power Equipment group’s features, such as power windows and locks and remote keyless entry. Car and Driver says, “The Ultimate Trailer Tow package ($710) lives up to its name and comes with a 360-degree camera system with trailer reverse guidance, a rear camera in the center high-mounted stop light (CHMSL) to give a clear view of the bed, an LED CHMSL, and a rearview camera.” The FX4 Off-Road package and its special exterior stickers, front and rear Rancho shocks, hill descent control, transfer case, and fuel-tank-protecting skid plates will set you back $295 if you buy a 4WD F-250.

Moving up a few levels brings you to the F-250 Super Duty XLT Crew Cab – and a minimum price of $42,430. Rear-wheel drive and a 6.75-foot bed behind four full-size doors is standard equipment. Upgrading to the eight-foot bed on 2WD models means an upcharge of $195 and a premium of $200 on 4WD models. Four-wheel-drive capability costs either $2795 or $2,800, depending on bed length.

Prices for the Ford F-250 Super Duty Lariat Crew Cab will start at $48,630. The $3,740 Lariat Ultimate package adds a ton of goodies, such as voice-activated navigation, automatic high-beam headlights, push-button start, driver’s seat memory, remote start, a remote tailgate release, large trailer-tow mirrors with memory, heated and cooled front seats, a tailgate step and handle, and LED bed lighting.

The 2017 King Ranch F-250 will cost at least $55,455. Standard equipment includes rain-sensing wipers, lighted running boards, LED brake lights, King Ranch–specific leather seats, a heated power tilting and telescoping steering wheel, push-button start, and power-adjustable pedals. Ticking the box for the King Ranch Ultimate package means you’ll pay another $2,960, but you’ll get such niceties as a twin-panel sunroof, power-deployable running boards, a tailgate step and handle, and LED headlights, taillights, and fog lamps.

The top-of-the-line F-250 Platinum will have a starting price of $63,305, $5,070 north of its 2016 figure of $58,235. It’s 4WD only and comes out of the (giant) box with 20-inch wheels, a retractable rear step, LED lights front and rear, massaging front seats, and genuine wood interior trim. Features such as a twin-panel sunroof, a 360-degree camera system with trailer reverse guidance, a CHMSL-mounted rearview camera, lane-departure warning, and adaptive cruise control with collision warning and brake support are part of the $2,785 Platinum Ultimate package.
