The new base price represents a $150 increase over that of the outgoing model for the all-new F-250 XL with its lightweight steel frame and aluminum body panels, which result in a 350-pound weight savings compared to its predecessor.
Buyers who opt for the better-equipped XLT will pay at least $37,935 with destination fee. For the extra $365 over the 2016 model they'll get such standard features as chrome bumpers and grille, 18-inch alloy wheels, power mirrors and door locks, remote keyless entry, cruise control, a rearview camera and a 4.2-inch console-mounted display.
The 2017 F-250 Lariat, at a starting price of $46,300 with destination ($310 more than 2016), adds such goodies as foglights, running boards, leather interior trim with a leather-wrapped steering wheel, power seats, an 8-inch touchscreen display and a Sony entertainment system.
Stepping up to the King Ranch, priced from $55,455, including destination charge (an increase of $1,870 over the 2016 model) gains buyers features like LED box lighting and side mirror lights, a power remote tailgate release, passive entry with push-button start and voice-activated navigation, as well as illuminated running boards, unique leather bucket seats and power-adjustable pedals and steering wheel.
The top-of-the line F-250 Platinum, which starts at $63,305 with destination fee (a jump of $5,070 over the previous year) rewards buyers with an array of luxury touches that includes power running boards, 20-inch alloy wheels, LED headlights, foglights and taillights, multi-contoured massaging seats, adaptive steering, a wood-trimmed interior and a heated steering wheel.
All 2017 F-250 models come standard with a 6.2-liter V8 engine mated to a six-speed automatic transmission. A 6.7-liter turbodiesel V8 is available as an option.
Edmunds says: The wide range of 2017 Ford F-250 Super Duty models should offer plenty of choices for shoppers in the market for a heavy-duty pickup.
