The $100,000 pickup is almost here.
For 2018, Ford is adding a new top-of-the-line model, the F-450 Limited 4x4. The starting price, including $1,295 for shipping, is $87,100. Ford says customers who check every available option will push the price to $94,455. Add in sales taxes and title fees, and most buyers are looking at a six-figure purchase price.
And that's OK with Ford.
"We still haven't found the ceiling for luxury trucks," said Ford spokesman Mike Levine.
The truck's interior is even more opulent than the King Ranch and Platinum, Ford's two luxury pickups. The F-450 Limited features custom camelback leather two-tone seats, a suede headliner and stitched leather on the steering wheel and instrument panel. The interior is bedecked with hand-finished dark ash wood trim.
But the F-450 Limited isn't just about leather seats, an advanced infotainment system and a full menu of safety equipment.
Ford says it can tow up to 15 tons.
