2013 Ford Super Duty Goes Platinum

Posted by Mark Williams | March 9, 2012

You knew it was going to happen. It was only a matter of time. The 2013 Ford Super Duty will get same high-level Platinum trim package that the Ford F-150 has been getting since the 2009 model year. And, we're told, this will be Ford's top-level trim package for Super Duty.

The package will work with and provide a choice to the Super Duty's other premium trim package, the King Ranch, but it will allow big-truck buyers to choose between the cowboy or stylish themes. Ford assures us — as difficult as it might be for some who think everyone who drives a pickup wants to be a cowboy — there are quite a few buyers interested in a luxury package without all the saddlebag and ranch-lifestyle details.

Pretty much sums up their idea of a platinum version.

I actually like the looks too. Too bad this didn't come out a year or two earlier, I have an uncle who factory ordered a 2011 F350 Diesel King Ranch with all the boxes ticked but it seems so obscenely tacky to me with the red saddle leather and stuff compared to the GM and Ram trucks- of course he actually farms and uses it for work, towing equipment, etc so I really have to defer to him on what's best for his needs... This truck probably appeals less to him and more to the urban truck driving set who likes to box me in so I can't get out of the Costco parking lot.

Also nice to see that FoMoCo has figured out that MyFordTouch should be accompanied by buttons and switches, bravo. That only took them what, two years?
