By merely looking at the 2013 Ford Super Duty, it still looks smaller than the other heavy-duty pickup trucks but then size would not be such a big thing because of all its great features. This vehicle truly offers one of the best-rounded packages in the pickup industry today.

More than all these amazing features, Ford added the MyFord Touch, which is an incredibly great tool that anyone can benefit from. Ford also releases a Platinum trim level for those who want their heavy-duty pickup to be ultra plush as well.

We love the variety of trim levels that the 2013 Ford Super Duty offers. Consumers greatly benefit as they can choose the trim level perfect for their needs and budget. The XL is favored by workers as it is considered the workhorse among all the trim levels.  The XLT just adds up some high technology features like keyless entry and full power accessories.

Lariat and King Ranch also boasts of high technology features but if you want ultra-plush comfort and amenities, the top-of-the-line Platinum trim level will be the one to satisfy you.
