When Ford introduced the F-150 Platinum Edition in 2009, it became an immediate hit with truck buyers who could afford it and didn’t need the power and towing capacity of a Super Duty. This month the company introduced the big brother Platinum Edition to meet those needs, and fill out its luxury truck portfolio.
As with all Super Duty trucks, it can be ordered as an F-250, F-350 or F-450 with a choice of either the 6.7-liter Power Stroke diesel engine or the 6.2-liter V8 gas engine. Only a crew cab is available. No changes have been made to drive trains, horsepower or torque, towing and load capacity and the other specs currently available for Super Duty Trucks. That should satisfy those truck buyers who appreciate the packages but want to make a serious statement about their vehicle.
Starting with the updated grille design, featuring a satin chrome surround with a perforated mesh inside, this truck sends an immediate message that it is powerful. The front end also has a monochromotic bumper and chrome tow hooks to enhance the statement.
