With five trims, three cabs, and several models, the Ford Super Duty offers a dizzying array of features to fit any taste or budget.

According to ConsumerGuide, 2008 Ford Super Duty F-250 and F-350 are available in five trim levels. "XL and XLT offer a 2-dr regular cab, an extended SuperCab with rear-hinged doors that don't open independently of the fronts, and a crew cab with four full doors. [Ford Super Duty 2008] FX4 and Lariat trims are available as SuperCabs and crew cabs. The top-line King Ranch is a crew cab only." Edmunds reports that the XL trim is "meant for those who just need a bare-bones work truck; it comes standard with plain vinyl upholstery, a basic AM/FM radio, 17-inch wheels and not much else."

The 2008 Ford Super Duty offers many standard and optional features to suit most any need.

Notable standard features of the Ford Super Duty 2008 include a front step bumper, which Kelley Blue Book says "makes under-the-hood checks easier." About the rear of the 2008 Ford Super Duty, they add, "Ford includes a hitch receiver -- matched to each model's capabilities -- along with seven-pin and four-pin connectors."

Ford Super Duty order forms are long. Kelley Blue Book reports they "provide a wealth of choices for virtually any commercial or recreational use." Some notable options on the Ford Super Duty 2008, according to the same source, are the TowCommand System, the tailgate step option, and the foldable bed extender. The 2008 Ford Super Duty TowCommand System "fully integrates the trailer brakes, ABS, TorqShift automatic trans and tow/haul mode into one safe, capable towing platform." Kelley Blue Book calls the bed extender "functional" and contends it "improves load utility when in place and stays out of the way when not needed." ConsumerGuide notes, "Lariat and King Ranch models have specific trim and are available with a navigation system. A sunroof is optional on all crew cabs except the XL."
