The new Ford F-250 Super Duty has become the latest member of the Performax International family, with the Gympie, Queensland-based conversion company confirming it has received government approval for full-volume, right-hand drive production of the alloy-bodied pick-up truck.
Mated as standard to a six-speed automatic and dual-range all-wheel drive, the F-250's massive oiler unit produces 328kW of power at 2800rpm, and a colossal 1254Nm of torque at just 1800rpm.
With those outputs, the F-250 claims a braked towing capacity of 7200 kilograms.
Several trim grades will be offered by Performax; including XL, XLT, Lariat, King Ranch and Platinum specifications. Pricing starts at "around $119,000" for the entry-level XL, climbing to "around $150,000" for a "well-optioned" Lariat variant.
Performax says final pricing is dependent on individual vehicle specifications and prevailing exchange rates.
Equipment on offer includes LED lighting, engine braking, a remote-release tailgate with damping control, lane-departure warning, adaptive cruise control, blind spot monitoring, up to seven surround cameras including a trailer view, and leather cabin trim.
