2013 Ford Super Duty gets Platinum Series, SYNC with MyFord Touch

The 2013 Ford F-Series Super Duty has been unveiled and is being touted as ‘more luxurious than ever’ and as a ‘no-compromise truck luxury for the market with the first-ever Platinum heavy-duty pickup’ – not to mention it also offers SYNC with MyFord Touch.

“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.”

While I never really understood the connection between luxury and pickups, Ford apparently loves luxurious pickups. Building on the success of the F-150 Platinum addition, the Ford F-Series Super Duty Platinum now offers luxury touches to the buyers of gigantic pickups.

On the outside the Ford F-Series Super Duty Platinum gets a new cool grille with enhanced by a monochromatic bumper and chrome tow hooks, chrome on the door handles, mirror caps, running boards and exhaust tip, Platinum badging chrome letters, and 20-inch polished wheels with painted black inserts. Inside the model gets wood grain trimming, heated and leather wrapped steering wheel, heated seats, MyFord Touch, Navigation, 10-way power adjustable seating for the driver, rear view camera, remote start, and much more.

Super Duty Platinum is available in Ruby Red, Kodiak Brown, Tuxedo Black, Ingot Silver and White Platinum. Interior color offerings include Pecan and Midnight Black. Another new exterior color, Blue Jean Metallic, will be available for Super Duty models other than Platinum.

The Ford F-Series Super Duty crew cab can be ordered as a F-250, F-350 or F-450 and with the 6.7-liter Power Stroke diesel engine or the 6.2-liter V8 gas engine.
