Not content to let the newly-redesigned Super Duty rest with only five trim levels, Ford has announced two more for the late May start of 2007 production - the Lariat Outlaw and Lariat Highline.

Available only with the Powerstroke 6.0L diesel, the black monochrome Outlaw is designed to attract the sort of disobedient bad-asses who buy $50,000 trucks. Leather-covered captain's chairs keep prospective Young Guns comfortable, and there are a set of chrome step bars in case they've got trouble making a big single leap into the cab. Tinted windows are included to hide all those law-breaking activities from the authorities.

The Highline, available with all three options, adds to the already long list of standard Lariat equipment by adding an all-black leather interior, brushed aluminum trim, and a billet grille that is larger than most garage doors.

Ford's full press release is posted after the jump.

Ford Super Duty trucks are well known for their legendary hauling and towing capabilities. But Super Duty hasn't become a member of the best-selling line of pickups on shear muscle alone. Ford has always given Super Duty owners the option of mixing business and pleasure with an unmatched variety of trim and equipment levels designed to complement the class-leading functionality of their trucks.

The current Super Duty lineup includes the value-leading XL, the dressier XLT, the luxurious Lariat as well as the unique King Ranch and Harley Davidson editions.  The King Ranch and Harley Davidson trucks enjoy an almost cult-like following in some circles.

For 2007, Super Duty steps up the ante for F-250 and F-350 Crew Cab and SuperCab Lariat models with the new Lariat Outlaw and Lariat Highline trucks.

"With more and more Super Duty customers moving upscale, the Highline and Outlaw packages give us exciting new trim levels that further differentiate our trucks," says Robert Keller, Super Duty marketing manager. 

The Lariat Outlaw Package is available only with the 6.0 diesel engine and includes all Lariat Crew Cab standard features, such as cab steps, fog lamps, six-way power driver and passenger seats with leather seating surfaces, privacy glass, leather-wrapped steering wheel, rear sliding window, advanced security group and trailer tow package plus:

  • Black Monochrome Appearance
  • Chrome step bars
  • Chrome exhaust tip
  • Unique front captain's chairs trimmed in black and red leather
  • Front console with black and red leather-wrapped lid
  • OUTLAW instrument panel insert
  • Special gauge cluster
  • Brushed aluminum-style door trim
  • Ebony interior accents
  • Optional 20-inch forged aluminum wheels

The Highline Package, available on SuperCab Lariat models with either gasoline V-8, V-10 or diesel engines, adds an all-black interior with a full chrome trim package consisting of chrome billet-style grille, chrome tow hooks, chrome mirror caps, chrome tubular step bars, chrome bed tie-down hooks and a chrome exhaust tip. The Highline includes all Lariat SuperCab standard features, plus:

  • Chrome package Front captain's chairs with black leather seating surfaces
  • Front console with black leather-wrapped lid
  • Brushed aluminum-style trim
  • Ebony interior accents
  • Red, white or black clearcoat exterior color
  • Optional 20-inch forged aluminum wheels

The new interior packages will be available at the start of production for the 2007 F-250 and F-350 in late May of this year.

      Gotta add some "bling" to the PSD (PowerStroke Diesel) to make up for the pretty disasterous track record of the 6.0 engine. The current 6.0l PSD engine has been in production (manu'd by Navistar for Ford) since m.y. '03 and has had numerous problems since day one. For more info on the 6.0l PSD, there's tons to read here: http://forums.thedieselstop.com/ubbthreads/

      The '05s seem to be much improved (I have one - and I don't own a Hardly Ableson - or any other cruiser type motor-sickle either), but in order to keep selling these $50K trucks until the new 6.4l engine is released, Ford have to add something. Even if it is only "bling".

      It's a bit sad though. I know it's supposed to be a work truck, but you'd think that on a $50K vehicle, you'd at least have some sort of nav or decent entertainment (DVD-video) option. Nope. At least not when I bought my 2005 F250. I'd love to add a nav system, but at around $1500+ for a decent system, I'll wait.

      In the automotive world, this is about as silly as it gets.

      And, yeah, I do have a tendency to pick on people who can't spell, but I find it fascinating that an entire army of well-paid PR types at Ford couldn't figure out how to spell "sheer".

      I have 2 trucks over 50K and I just went from the dealer lot and to the stereo store and solved that problem

      Of course they have steps built in, it's usually some short guy(nothing against short guys,Hell, I'm only 5'10") trying to compensate for it by buying a Super Duty, putting 33" tires on it and seeing less (if any)offroad/work time than a Subaru!

      "the black monochrome Outlaw is designed to attract the sort of disobedient bad-asses who buy $50,000 trucks. "

      Ain't that the truth. Gotta have something to trailer your $50,000 "custom" chopper all the way to Sturgis and make it back in time for the board meeting.

      You buy a $50K pretty/bling "work" truck and gripe about a $1,500 nav system. Somewhere on your climb to $50K you passed the common sense threshold.

      $1,500 should be a water drop in the bucket of wasted money at those prices.

      I'm not hating on FORD either. I'm a FORD fan and have a F-150 and a Escape.
