Ford’s 2013 F-Series Super Duty Platinum

Ford's latest plush-truck, the 2013 F-Series Super Duty Platinum, is a perfect blend of toughness and capability.

The 2013 F-Series Super Duty Platinum, which has a towing capacity of 17,000 pounds, will come equipped with standard navigation, a rear-view camera and leather-wrapped steering wheel.

In its wood-grain dashboard, there is touchscreen entertainment and climate control system. It has four climate control and radio knobs along with several audio preset and climate buttons.

Those real buttons will provide an alternative to the touchscreen and Sync voice commands offered by MyFord Touch. The lack of such buttons had been a big complaint by users of other MyFord Touch-equipped vehicles.

The automaker said it was offering comparatively large buttons as it would help truck customers use them with gloves on.

F-Series Super Duty Marketing Manager Brian Rathsburg said, "It has a distinct appearance and a long list of features to deliver a superior experience. Along with that, it has all of the capability F-Series trucks are famous for."

Customers will be able to choose from F-250, F-350 or F-450 pickups that will come with the Ford-designed and Ford-manufactured 6.7-liter Power Stroke diesel engine or the 6.2-liter V8 gas engine.

Prices will be announced before the 2013 F-Series Super Duty series' release later this year.
