Which F-450 Super Duty does Edmunds recommend?
Our recommendation for most F-450 buyers is the midrange Lariat trim level. The base XL and the XLT offer a decent amount of equipment (and are available with a regular-cab configuration, while the Lariat and above are only available in crew cab), but a lot of the Super Duty's desirable features show up first on the Lariat.
Edmunds' Expert Review
Thanks to its stout engine and chassis, the F-450 is capable of taking on just about anything. Whether it's hauling heavy loads or taking the family to dinner, the Super Duty impresses with its smooth ride and responsive powertrain.
Long trips are welcomed in the Super Duty thanks to its quiet cabin and plush leather interior. Interior noise is well-muted, with just the thrum of the Power Stroke engine to be heard. Once you make the climb up into the cab, you don't want to come back down.
The Super Duty's interior is not only comfortable but also very functional. Its digital display is customizable, and you can check tire pressures for both the truck and trailer right from the cab. There are enough physical buttons so that you don't always have to hunt and peck on a screen.
Utility is what the Super Duty is all about thanks to its high gross vehicle weight rating and fifth-wheel prep. Interior storage is expansive.
Thanks to the Sync 3 interface, even work trucks can feel modern and high-tech. The F-450 also has adjustable blind-spot detection, so its field of view can cover a trailer. The surround-view cameras help with parking and trailering, and the electronic tailgate release is nice to have.

Platinum 4dr Crew Cab DRW (6.7L 8cyl Turbodiesel 6A)
This truck is a mule. 30,000lbs begins it is no issue at all. Biggest issue I have is the ride. Only have a little over 2,000 miles but this thing rides pretty rough. Feel every little bump and crack on the road...... hope I don’t regret my first ever Ford
Platinum 4dr Crew Cab 4WD DRW (6.7L 8cyl Turbodiesel 6A)
Upgraded from F350 King ranch to pull a 43' 20,000# Toyhauler and the F450 does it well and in style, tighter turns due to wider stance that also improves stability, can tell big difference F350 to F450. So why 4 stars? Ford did not putting TPMS in these tires (stupid move) so plan on adding aftermarket TPMS for piece of mind and forget using it as a everyday driver between trips, unloaded it will beat you to death with these low profile, zero sidewall flex commercial19" tires with 100# each needed for towing. Flip side, it stays parked between trips saving me unloaded miles on a $90,000 truck :)
