The price of the base-trim Ford F-250 Super Duty starts at $38,445 for the XL, with the XLT, Lariat, King Ranch, and Platinum filling the gaps in the trim levels up to the $88,880 Limited. There are three body style configurations and three engines, along with RWD and AWD. The V8 turbodiesel supplies 1,050 lb-ft of torque and a maximum towing capacity of 22,800 lbs.
Starting off the Ford F-250 models, the XL can be had with the Regular, Super, and Crew Cab, as well as any of the three engines. Standard features include manual air conditioning, vinyl upholstery, and a rearview camera, along with AM/FM Stereo, an MP3 Player, and four speakers. From here, the specifications can be upgraded with dual-zone climate control, power-adjustable front seats with heating and ventilation, higher-quality leather upholstery, and additional safety features like blind-spot monitoring, rear cross-traffic alert, and a surround-view camera. There are plenty of package options, too.
The price of the Ford F-250 begins at $38,445 for the XL. It's followed by the XLT at $43,470 and the Lariat at $51,855. After this, the big truck gets a lot more expensive. The King Ranch carries an MSRP of $66,845, the Platinum is $70,160, and the Limited goes for a hefty $88,880. These prices all represent the trims in their cheapest format, body style, and powertrain. You'll also need to factor in the destination charge of $1,795 in the USA.
With so many configurations on offer, each trim can get significantly more expensive than the numbers reflected above. For example, the base XL will be $3,590 more expensive if you upgrade from the Regular Cab to the Crew Cab. On the same trim, upgrading from 4x2 to 4x4 costs $2,790 and equipping the powerful diesel engine costs $10,495.
It all depends on the kind of truck you need but do expect the final bill to fluctuate wildly after configuring your F-250.
There are many packages and accessories available for all Ford F-250 pickup trucks. Even the cheapest XL Regular Cab can be ordered with the Trailer Tow High Capacity Package with the Ultimate Trailer Tow Camera System and the Pro Trailer Backup Assist Package. It costs $2,785 but also requires the diesel engine and the SYNC 3 infotainment system, raising the base price by a substantial $17,255. The package includes lane-keep alert, an upgraded rear axle, increased GCWR (30,300 lbs), a surround-view camera, a trailer reverse guide, and a rear CHMSL camera.
On this same base trim, the FX4 Off-Road Package costs $495 and includes hill descent control, off-road shock absorbers, skid plates for the transfer case and fuel tank, and FX4 decals. However, you'll also need to spec the 4x4 drivetrain and other extras which will increase the overall price by $3,880.
Higher up in the range, the Lariat can now be had with the new Lariat Sport Appearance Package. At $1,605 on double cab variants, this package includes a chrome exhaust tip, body-color bumpers, a painted body-color grille, platform running boards, and more. However, you can't spec this package without upgrading to the 4x4 system, raising the total price by $4,795.
The King Ranch can be equipped with the $3,685 King Ranch Ultimate Package. This includes LED fog lamps, a twin-panel moonroof, and multi-contour seats. Likely to be one of the more popular options is the Tremor Off-Road Package. On this model, it costs $4,375 and includes 35-inch off-road tires, a Rock Crawl mode, an increase in ride height, performance shock absorbers, and a lot more. However, you'll need the bigger V8 engine to go with it, realizing a net price increase of $6,420. On the Platinum, speccing the Tremor Package costs the same.
The range-topping Limited has fewer options available as it's already fully loaded, but you can add the F-250 Trailer Tow High Capacity with Ultimate Trailer Tow Camera System and Pro Trailer Backup Assist Package for $1,185.
As you can see, there is no shortage of choice when it comes to customizing the F-250 and the options above are just a snapshot of what you can expect when customizing your truck.
The answer to this question depends on what you intend to do with your Ford F-250 pickup. We'd want a blend of practicality and luxury, which is why we'd opt for the mid-spec Lariat in Crew Cab configuration. It can still carry a load and a family in relative comfort.
The big question is whether we'd have the 6.7-liter Power Stroke turbodiesel. Sure, 1,050 lb-ft sounds like a lot of fun, but it's a very specialized engine. Unless you're going to be towing something large, it's only going to be a waste. That's why we'd have the 7.3-liter V8 with the ten-speed automatic transmission. At only $2,045, it's much cheaper than the $10,495 6.7-liter engine. Add the $710 Lariat Value Package, and you have a winner. This package includes LED lighting for the box, power-adjustable pedals, power-adjustable front seats with heating and ventilation, towing mirrors, and remote start.
