"The F-Series Super Duty Platinum is the latest expression of Built Ford
Tough truck luxury," said Brian Rathsburg, F-Series Super Duty Marketing
manager. "It has a distinct appearance and a long list of features to deliver a
superior experience. Along with that, it has all of the capability F-Series
trucks are famous for."
Building on the success of the F-150 Platinum light-duty series that debuted in
2009, the F-Series Super Duty Platinum offers customers the ultimate in truck
Ford pioneered the high-end luxury truck segment in 1999 when it introduced the
special-edition 2000 Harley-Davidson F-150. In 2003 the first King Ranch Super
Duty arrived, followed by the 2004 Harley-Davidson Super Duty. Today, Ford sells
a rich mix of high-end Lariat and King Ranch Super Duty models; the new Platinum
will further meet the growing luxury needs of customers and dealers.
Available only in the Super Duty crew cab, it can be ordered as an F-250, F-350
or F-450 pickup and with the Ford-designed and Ford-built 6.7-liter Power Stroke
diesel engine or the 6.2-liter V8 gas engine.
The Platinum series makes a bold statement with a grille that features a satin
chrome surround highlighted by perforated mesh inside. The updated grille is
enhanced by a monochromatic bumper and chrome tow hooks.
The exterior of the Super Duty Platinum is lavished in chrome, including the
door handles, mirror caps, running boards and exhaust tip. The boxside on both
sides of the truck sports the "Platinum" name in chrome letters and the tailgate
is trimmed with a satin chrome applique, similar to the one used on the F-150
Platinum. Twenty-inch polished-aluminum wheels with painted black inserts round
out the stunning exterior design of the Super Duty Platinum.
The interior showcases luxury in the form of unique wood grain appliques. The
steering wheel is heated and leather-wrapped, with genuine wood accents. The
instrument panel, center stack and door trims are wrapped in premium wood grain.
A new storage area on top of the dash includes two USB ports, audio-video
connections, SD card slot and a 12-volt charging port for cell phones and other
2013 F-Series Super Duty Platinum, interior with unique wood grain appliques.
