This is what the New Ford Super Duty 2023 looks like, Ford’s extreme work pickup
The new 2023 Ford Super Duty features an upgraded diesel powertrain, new towing assist features, and plenty of additional technology to accompany the new interior and exterior styling of Ford’s big trucks.
The 2023 Ford Super Duty is redesigned with new styling elements, updated powertrains and new technology. While the F-250, F-350 and F-450 remain primarily heavy-duty workhorses, Ford enhances them with features intended to take the pickup to another level of capability and functionality. They will face off, as always, against the Chevrolet Silverado HD and Ram HD models that are also getting facelifts this time of year.
The 2023 Super Duty lineup comes with seven different grille designs, varying between trim levels and available appearance packages. The most notable visual upgrade is the pickup’s C-shaped lighting fixtures. All models can now also be equipped with Led headlights. The addition of long side vents is said to improve aerodynamics. Super Duty Pickups can also be dressed in new styling packages that offer unique trim, wheel and paint combinations. The new XL Off-Road Package specifically includes 33-inch off-road tires, skid plates, an electronic locking rear differential and more, and is only available on single-rear-axle, four-wheel-drive F-250s and Fs.
Inside, the 2023 Ford Super Duty receives an 8-inch touchscreen infotainment system that’s standard starting on the XL model. Higher trim levels are equipped with a 12-inch drive. Audiophiles can choose between a 640-watt, eight-speaker B&O sound system or a more powerful 1,080-watt, 18-speaker B&O setup. Other desirable interior features that are available include a 12-inch configurable digital gauge cluster, a wireless charging pad, and a center console slot that is designed to hold a table upright. Those looking to relax will appreciate Super Duty’s optional Max Recline seats that fold nearly flat and feature a lower cushion that rises to create an even more comfortable seating position.
For 2023, Super Duty’s standard engine is a new gasoline-powered 6.8-liter V-8. It is paired with a 10-speed automatic transmission just like all other available engines. Also, like all other engines, Ford doesn’t say how much horsepower or torque any of them make, but we expect them to meet or exceed their previous performances. That includes the gas-burning 7.3-liter V-8, and it gets revised trims and an improved air intake. The 6.7-liter Power Stroke diesel V-8 remains a staple of the Super Duty lineup, and there’s a new high-performance version with updated tuning, a unique turbocharger, and revised exhaust manifolds. Ford estimates that the improvements will make it the most powerful diesel truck in its class. Also new for 2023, all models starting with XLT come standard with all-wheel drive.
When it comes to towing, Ford Super Duty is not only ready to tow massive loads, but now it has high-tech assists that make the job easier. The introduction of on-board scales gives users an estimated cargo weight to ensure they don’t exceed the pickup’s payload. The feature also helps guide people on how to evenly distribute the trailer tongue weight. Along with a gooseneck and fifth-wheel trailer blind-spot monitor, Super Duty is now available with a 360-degree camera system designed specifically for trailers.
Ford has yet to release pricing for the 2023 Super Duty lineup. However, the company says it will release those figures closer to the time the trucks go into production, which should be early next year.
