2023 Ford Super Duty: What New Specifications You Can Get
The 2023 Ford F-series Super Duty is being completely redesigned for next year's model. Everything from the exterior and interior designs to the technology and powertrains are new, helping it stay ahead of its competition in the pickup truck marketplace. According to Ford, this means that the 2023 Super Duty will have the highest engine output and tow/payload ratings of any vehicle in its class.
The Super Duty is equipped to handle payloads of up to 8000 pounds or trailers weighing 40,000 pounds. In addition, new tech like a blind-spot-monitoring system and backup camera make driving and towing safer and more convenient. The Super Duty is also the first in its industry with a 5G Wi-Fi hotspot.
What's New for 2023?
For 2023, Ford has changed the design of their heavy-duty pickup truck from the tires up. In addition to its new appearance, it also gets improved engines. The 7.3-liter V-8 has a revised air intake and updated tuning while there is an all-new 6.7-liter Power Stroke V diesel engine under the hood as well. From the outside, adopts a design language already familiar with smaller F-150's and Maverick pickup trucks which includes signature "C clamp" lighting
The Super Duty comes complete with functional side vents, in lieu of trendy fake ones. You'll find a new digital instrument cluster and an infotainment display up to 12.0 inches large inside the cabin, along with a redesigned dashboard. Also, four-wheel drive becomes standard on XLT and Lariat models rather than only available on the King Ranch, Platinum, and Limited-- rear-wheel drive remains standard on the base XL model though.
Engine, Transmission, and Performance
The V-8 has increased its size to a 6.8-liter engine, and is now said to have improved low-end power. The gas fed 7.3 liter engine sees a couple new features, but the real star of the show is the diesel Power Stroke which comes in at 6.7 liters and 500 horsepower.
The Power Stroke engine features a new turbocharger, updated exhaust manifolds, and custom tuning. Every engine option is connected to a 10-speed automatic transmission. Although Ford hasn't yet announced the horsepower or torque amounts for any of the Super Duty's engines, it's highly likely that the Power Stroke diesel will take the cake as most powerful in its class--as per company claims.
Fuel Economy and Real-World MPG
We haven't been able to test the Super Duty yet since the EPA doesn't evaluate vehicles as large as this one, but we'll base our judgement off of our own testing. Ford has updated its powertrain options for its heavy-duty pickup trucks, so we'll have to wait until we can try out the new ones before determining real-world mpg on our highway fuel economy route at 75 mph. Most likely, the Super Duty's optional Power Stroke diesel will be the most efficient engine available.
Interior, Comfort, and Cargo
The cabin on the 2023 model is an improvement from the 2022 design, but those considering the base XL trim should still anticipate a more simplistic interior. However, there are more convenience and luxury features available as you look at the various trims. Additionally, Ford has created front seats that recline to nearly flat position for drivers who need to rest overnight during long drives. Although we don't have a full list of all the interior features and options for 2023 yet, we will update this story with additional information once it becomes available.
How much will the 2023 Super Duty Cost?
We expect the 2023 Super Duty to start in the region of $42,000, plus a destination charge, for the basic XL trim. The next-up, XLT, should be about $6K more. Other trims are Lariat, King Ranch, Platinum, and Limited. There are so many options that a well-equipped Limited could end up close to $100,000.
How many Ford Super Duty trucks are waiting for chips?
The Drive reports that around 40,000 unfinished Ford Super Duty trucks are just lying there, waiting for parts. The truck pile is so large that it's visible from space!
