The F-Series Super Duty pickup truck lineup starts with the 3/4-ton F-250, continues with the 1-ton F-350, and finishes with the even more capable F-450. There are two bed lengths, 6.5- and 8-foot, 2WD and 4WD and single or dual rear wheels. These line up with the Chevy Silverado HD2500/3500, RAM 2500/3500 Heavy-Duty, and GMC Sierra HD2500 or HD3500.

In many ways, the F-Series Super Duty is best in its class when it comes to capability, and first to market with tech, safety and convenience features. But all this comes at a price. There are five trim levels for the F-Series Super Duty: XL, XLT, Lariat, King Ranch and Platinum. When it goes on sale in September, you'll be able to get into a regular-cab F-250 XL with the short bed and 6.2-liter gas V8 for a fleet-friendly $34,000, but if you went completely hog wild, you could spend as much as $84,000 for a 4WD F-350 Platinum dualie. The Super Duty's starting price generally matches that of the competition, and while the top gotta-have-it-all price is higher than that of the competitors, the Ford offers many features not available in other trucks in its class.
