Ford has announced one of the most expensive and luxurious trucks ever to roll the streets with the unveiling of the new F-Series Super Duty Limited promising new levels of luxury for truck fans that need to tow lots of stuff (up to 30,000 pounds) in style and comfort.

The F-350 Super Duty Limited 4x4 starts at $82,010 and the F-450 Super Duty Limited 4x4 starts at $87,100. All those prices include destination. Ford says that these trucks are aimed at heavy-duty truck customers who want capability and "true luxury." Ford says that so far this year over 50% of all Super Duty truck sales have been high-end models like the Lariat, King Ranch, and Platinum series. Limited takes the luxury to the next level.

The Limited series has custom Camelback two-tone leather seats, premium stitched leather-wrapped steering wheel, armrests, and instrument panel. The headliner is Miko suede and there is hand-finished dark ash wood trim inside. The interior also gets special badges. The exterior of the truck gets a special twin-bar satin grille with chrome accents, quad-beam LED headlights and a satin-finish tailgate applique.

Each of the Limited models also has a serial number laser-etched on the center console armrest. The truck also gets lots of tech inside with a 360-degree camera with Trailer Reverse Guidance, Sync 3, BLIS with trailer coverage, adaptive cruise control, and adaptive steering.

Lane-keeping alert is integrated along with forward collision warning with brake support. The rear load floor is flat with locking storage. A panoramic moonroof with retractable shade, heated and ventilated front seats and heated rear seats round out the special features. All Super Duty Limited trucks are crew cab and use the 6.7L Power Stroke diesel V8 and can be had in single or dual rear wheel configurations.
