2017 Ford F-250 Super Duty: Lighter Build, Heavier Price

By  | 

Prices for all trim levels of the 2017 Ford F-250 Super Duty pickup truck have been announced, and the vehicle is set for a fall roll-out into dealerships. All prices are inclusive of $1,195 destination charge.

The entry-level F-250 XL will go for $33,730, pricier by $150 from the present model, while one level higher the XLT asks for $37,935, which is more expensive than the current corresponding trim level by $365.

Some of the extra standard goodies include – among others – a set of 18-inch alloy wheels, chrome grille and bumpers, remote keyless entry, and a rearview camera.

Taking it one rung higher, the F-250 Lariat costs $46,300 which represents a $310 increase from before. It packs more standard features which include – but is not limited to – running boards, leather-clad interior, power seats, and foglights.

The F-250 King Ranch demands an additional $1,870 from before at $55,455 and it brings even more stuff such as passive entry with push-button start, voice-enabled navigation, special leather bucket seats, and LED box lighting, among others.

At the very top is the F-250 Platinum, costing $63,305 that comes as a hefty $5,070 price increase from the 2016 equivalent. Buyers get a banquet for that price, with goodies that include multi-contoured massage seats, adaptive steering that’s heated, a wood-trimmed interior, and 20-inch alloy wheels, among others.

Despite the price hike, the new F-250 weighs 350lbs lighter than the current model due to its aluminum-intensive construction. It’s hard to fault Blue Oval for offering so many standard features on all trims.

Finally, buyers can either take the truck with its standard 6.2L V8 engine bolted to a six-speed auto or a 6.7L turbo-diesel V8 block that runs on the same tranny.
