The Ford Super Duty pickup truck models are about more. More power. More capabilities. More hauling options. More towing capacity. More creature comforts in the cabin. Here at your Ford dealer in Milford Ohio, the sales team wants to highlight yet another more: more trim levels, as in six different configurations that can make whichever Ford Super Duty model you choose uniquely yours. From the versatile Ford Super Duty F-250, to the sweet spot of the Ford Super Duty F-350, to the all-out brawn of the Ford Super Duty F-450, the Blue Oval brand affords consumers a wide array of selections when time comes to make a decision on a dependable personal vehicle, or perhaps a fleet for your growing business. The trim levels for the Ford Super Duty pickup truck model are rather streamlined, but worth a closer inspection. Read on to learn more about the different variations of the Ford Super Duty models, and visit Mike Castrucci Ford when you have found the one that suits all your needs!


The basic trim level for the Ford Super Duty F-250, Ford Super Duty F-350, and the Ford Super Duty F-450 is the XL trim, followed closely by the XLT trim. The Ford Super Duty XL trim level sports a minimalist exterior look with work in mind, but is not without frills or thrills. While standard features such as quad-dual halogen beam headlamps, cargo area lights, or tailgate and box rail moldings set a good pace, optional equipment like cab steps, two-bar chrome grille, power-lock tailgate, and stowable loading ramps kick things up a notch. Much of the optional equipment for the XL trim level are standard on the XLT, but the option sheet and customization outlets remain extensive, including the differing tow ratings, so ask your sales professional at your local Ford dealership about the rest of the items on the menu.

Under the hood, a 6.2L SOHC 2-valve Flex Fuel V8 engine is standard on the Ford Super Duty F-250 and Ford Super Duty F-350, while higher-end motors in the 6.7L Powerstroke® V8 Turbo Diesel (only choice on the Ford Super Duty F-450) and a 7.3L 2V DEVCT NA PFI V8 engine are both available should you require more gusto. On the monstrous Ford Super F-450, a little more technological assistance is required when the rubber meets the pavement with all that force, so a heavy-duty alternator, gas shock absorbers, and a Transfer Case with Electronic Shift-On-the-Fly are all standard among a suite of other features.


For transmissions, the TorqShift® Heavy-Duty six-speed SelectShift-G™ Automatic gearbox is standard on the gasoline-powered Ford Super Duty F-250 models, while a uber-modern TorqShift® 10-speed Automatic with selectable drive modes can be paired to the diesel renditions of the Ford Super Duty. There are packages aplenty at these entry-level trims, including the STX Appearance Package that boasts upgraded and polished rims, chrome front and rear step bumpers, and unique STX badging. Opt for the FX4 Off-Road Package, and Hill Descent Control™, specially tuned shocks, and the FX4 Off-Road box decal will let the world know you intend to hit the trails and get this pickup truck model a little dirty.

A lengthy list of interior amenities ensures the cabin of the Ford Super Duty XL trim level never feels barren or spartan. A 2.3-inch productivity screen keeps you abreast of all readings and functions, while a series of storage options ensure there are enough nooks and crannies to store all belongings. A 4G LTE Wi-Fi model is standard courtesy of FordPass™, as is a tailgate-mounted rearview camera for maximum visibility when backing up your Super Duty. SYNC® is standard, the new-generation SYNC® 3 is optional, and stereo options vary with the size of the cab. On the Ford Super Duty F-350 and F-450 XLT, the productivity screen jumps to 4.2 inches, and additional power outlets dot the interior to plug in devices and accessories beyond cell phones. As you can see, the Ford Super Duty XL and Ford Super Duty XLT pack a lot of options despite being situated at the doorstep to the higher trim levels. These two trim levels provide just about everything one needs to be adequately comfortable and productive, but things start to heat up when at the next two offerings: the Ford Super Duty Lariat and Ford Super Duty King Ranch®.


When you select a Ford Super Duty Lariat or Ford Super Duty King Ranch®, much of the underpinnings that aspirate these hardworking pickups trucks - both standard and optional - remain unchanged, but the exterior and interior aesthetics reach a new level. Outside, halogen fog lamps are standard, as are the PowerScope® side mirrors. The headlamps can be upgraded to quad-beam LED versions, and power deployable cab steps aid the entry and egress from this full-size pickup truck model. For the Lariat trim level, a multitude of packages can be pinned all around, like the Lariat Ultimate Package, which comes with LED box lighting, push-button start, heated steering wheel, and even a voice-activated navigation system. Inside the cabin of the Lariat trim level, the instrument panel includes an eight-inch productivity screen, BLIS® (Blind Spot Information System) with Trailer Coverage, SYNC® 3, and a 10-speaker B&O Play® Premium audio system for all-around immersion, safety, and entertainment.

On the King Ranch® trim level, the King Ranch® Monochromatic Paint Package spruces up the exterior, and the King Ranch® Ultimate Package adds LED accents, a twin-panel moonroof, and multi-contour seats. As for the interior and those seats, they are part of this unique King Ranch® trim, and sports fresh panels, wood grain applique, and the superb Kingsville Antique Affect Leather seats, with the King Ranch®-branded 'W' adorning several parts of the cabin. The driver and passenger can relax to the max with the 10-way heated and cooled front seats, while virtually every safety and driver-assist technology can be had out of the box or off the option sheet. The well-appointed Ford Super Duty King Ranch®, especially with its one-off and branded tidbits, is an excellent stopping point, but if the King Ranch® look is not for you, then the staff at Mike Castrucci Ford has two more trim levels up their sleeves, and this is where the luxury factor for this full-size pickup truck model attains new heights.

So, you want something beyond the basics, even beyond the distinctive King Ranch® trim level? Then the Ford Super Duty Platinum and Ford Super Duty Limited trim levels could be your calling. The powertrain, drivetrain, transmission, and much of the optional trimmings from the entry-level and mid-level trims are all present in the Platinum and Limited members of the Ford Super Duty lineup, but a plethora of fine materials both outside and in make these the top dogs. On the range-topping Ford Super Duty Platinum and Limited trims, quad-beam LED headlights are standard for a crystal-clear view when driving at night, and a satin aluminum grille replaces the polished chrome for a sophisticated look and feel. The workman in you will also appreciate the availability of Tough Bed® spray-in bedliner and wheel well liners, and any attached trailer can be decked out with tire-pressure monitoring systems and a camera.

Inside, premium black vinyl floor coverings and all-weather mats are some of the only options, as is the Audible Lane Departure Warning system, because the Ford Super Duty Platinum and Limited trim levels arrive standard with virtually every detail covered thus far. For the Platinum level, the Platinum Ultimate Package puts a nice bow on the configurations, featuring Adaptive Cruise Control, Lane Departure Warning, Twin Moonroof, and more. As for the Limited trim level, options are somewhat limited when it comes to packages, as few stones are left unturned to ensure you drive off in the ultimate Ford Super Duty model, whether you go the F-250, F-350, or F-450 route.
