Ford offers several Super Duty trucks in the F-Series. Heavy-duty models range from the F-250 to the gargantuan F-750. This article will focus on the slightly smaller yet highly capable F-550. Here are details about this commercial truck, including how much you can expect to pay for a fully loaded 2023 Ford F-550.

What do you get with the 2023 Ford F-550 XL base model?

The XL and all other 2023 Ford F-550 trims offer a choice of three cab configurations. For the Regular Cab model, you can choose from wheelbase sizes, including 145, 169, 193, and 205 inches. The Super Cab version has a wheelbase of 168 to 193 inches. Last, the Crew Cab offers a wheelbase measuring 178 and 204 inches. 

Additionally, the base model packs a 7.3-liter V8 engine producing 335 hp and 468 lb-ft of torque. It pairs with a 10-speed automatic transmission and a 4×2 drivetrain (4×4 is available).

Exterior features include 19.5-inch Argent-painted steel wheels and trailer tow mirrors. The interior has manually controlled air conditioning, black vinyl flooring, dual map lights, a color-coordinated cloth headliner, and a 4.2-inch production display screen. 

Ford starts the XL at $50,845. Note that these chassis cab models don’t have boxes or beds. However, the frame accommodates whatever option you add for hauling in the F-550

How much is a fully loaded 2023 Ford F-550 Lariat?

The most expensive of the three Ford F-550 trims is the Lariat. This range-topping model comes with the same cab configurations and wheelbase measurements as the XL. The Lariat also has the same 4×2 drivetrain, 7.3-liter engine, and a similar transmission, with the option to upgrade to a turbodiesel power plant. 

In addition, the top trim boasts 19.5-inch forged steel wheels, double rear wheels, and LED side-mirror spotlights. It also has body-colored door handles, a chrome grille, and LED reflector headlights.  

The interior includes leather front seats, dual-zone electronic automatic climate control, Ford’s Sync 4 system, remote start, and a folding, locking under-seat storage box.

Ford starts the Lariat at $65,910. But expect to pay about $82,000 for a fully loaded 2023 Ford F-550 after adding all the available packages and accessories.
