2013 Super Duty: Initial Thoughts

Manly Admission: I was a little thrown off when they handed me the keys to a Super Duty (feel free to revoke my man card).

It’s not that I don’t love the thought of owning the road in the toughest car on the planet, basically. And it’s not that I’m not used to handling larger vehicles (I spent the first few years of my driving career at the wheel of my mom’s lifted Suburban). I had become spoiled by the fit, finish, and drive quality of the cars I’d driven previously and was a bit concerned at the thought of taking out a rough and rugged monster truck. I thought I might miss out on the level of refinement and luxury I’d had in the other cars, and that since I wasn’t towing or hauling anything, I wouldn’t have much to write about.

Welp, the second I got in, I knew it wouldn’t be a problem.

Ford has treated the Super Duty to the same treatment as all the other cars. My 2013 Lariat, third up in the Super Duty’s five standard trim levels, features an all-leather interior, 8 inch LCD display with rearview camera, heated seats, power everything, sunroof, and wood trim to cap it all off. The dashboard looks amazing, and everything feels comfortable.

I seriously can’t wait to give this thing a go.
