2017 Ford F-Series Super Duty Configurator: Maxed Out

Starting Price of $32,535 Balloons to $80k-Plus With Boxes Ticked

Aug 2, 2016
Curious about the new Ford F-Series Super Duty’s various options, prices, and packages? So were we, and that’s why we spent the better part of our afternoon outfitting one on the company website’s Build & Price tool.

Getting into a 2017 Super Duty won’t be too difficult, thanks to a starting price of just $32,535. That gets a regular-cab XL with an 8-foot bed, two-wheel drive, and a flex-fuel 6.2L gasoline V-8. Merely checking the box next to the 6.7L Power Stroke diesel V-8 causes the MSRP to jump somewhat significantly to $41,130, but can you put a price on best-in-class torque? Four-wheel drive is another spendy configuration, at $2,795, but we’d bet most consumer-oriented trucks will end up spec’d that way.
Before even hitting the options sheet, it’s possible to start with a truck with a base price of $77,125 (before the $1,195 destination charge). The truck in question is the 2017 F-450 Super Duty Platinum 4x4, which comes with a crew cab body, 8-foot bed, dual rear wheels, and 925 lb-ft of Power Stroke–fired torque. Now, let’s start ticking boxes!

This author’s favorite color is red, so optioning the $395 Ruby Red paint would be a given if he were shopping for himself. But since we’re trying to see how pricey we can make this truck, let’s instead click on $595 White Platinum paint. A $245 Snow Plow/Camper Package includes heavy-service front springs and slide-in certification, while Rancho shocks, skidplates, and Hill Descent Control get on board for $295 as part of the FX4 Package. The Platinum Ultimate Package comes on for $2,785, including such goodies as adaptive cruise control, a panoramic moonroof, lane monitoring, and Ford’s Ultimate Trailer Tow Camera System.

A 27.5K fifth-wheel kit is available from the factory at a cost of $1,495, making towing your horse trailer a one-and-done affair. $695 bed ramps aid in loading other cargo, while a $495 spray-in bed liner keeps things clean and tidy back there and prevents damage. Dual heavy-duty alternators provide enough juice for upfitting and cost $115, while an engine block heater is a must-have accessory for most diesel owners in the wintry Midwest. Plan on spending $75 on that.

With a handful of other options (splash guards, backup alarm, power take-off, etc.), plus some lovely Brunello-colored leather, our total came to $88,745. Our favorite option on the dream truck? That has to be the available vehicle safe, made by a company called Console Vault. Because we want a damn vault in our truck, that’s why.

Now, would we ever spend that much on a pickup? Probably not. But when debating the issue at the water cooler, one of our staffers rightly pointed out that any farm implement that costs less than 100 large is a relative bargain, so for some farmers and ranchers, a truck that costs nearly $90,000 is a justifiable luxury.
How about you? What’s your dream F-Series Super Duty going to cost?
