New 2023 Ford F-350 Super Duty Redesign, Engine – The never-ending pickup truck wars briskly continue in Detroit, with spy photographers spotting a camouflaged 2023 Ford F-350 Super Duty wearing some odd trim details. Most obvious to our jaundiced eyes are what appear to be modified headlamps, peepers which seem to retain the current lens’ shape if not function. The lower portion of the stacked lamps are illuminated as either daytime running lights or low beams on this test mule, differing from the present arrangement. This wouldn’t be the first time Ford fettled with the 2023 Ford F-350 Super Duty eyes; for 2020 they streamlined the LED light signature to eliminate the weird dot-matrix pattern that was present when this generation was introduced. And are those Raptor-style amber lights in the top section of this test truck’s grille? It’s hard to tell thanks to the white wrap but such an addition would fit the Tremor off-road package to a tee.
Speaking of packages and trims, this pickup seems to be wearing an odd mix of top-run Platinum jewelry along with black wheels, which are usually reserved for the aforementioned Tremor. Of course, it’s a simple matter to swap tire packages for the purposes of testing, but a Tremor-equipped Platinum would be an interesting proposition. After all, there are more than a few well-heeled customers who are certainly of the type to enjoy massaging seats while climbing desert dunes. If so, this would be in response to GMC who announced their burly off-road AT4X truck will be available with these types of features. Around back, we find details largely similar to the current truck, with no changes in the trailer wiring harness location and backup sensors appearing in the usual places. Those taillamps do seem to have a few more vertically-stacked clear LEDs than the existing lens, perhaps suggesting unique lighting for certain trims. After all, changing up lighting signatures without having to alter the physical shape and dimensions of the lamp itself is a relatively cheap way to freshen any vehicle without the expense of major retooling.
2023 Ford F-350 Super Duty Redesign
As far as we are aware, Ford has not released any official information on the future generation of the F-Series. According to the latest reports, the 2023 Ford F-350 Super Duty will gain a new front fascia. This means we should expect the brand-new headlights, and the new grille as well. The redesign will also include new wheels, taillights, and more aggressive bodywork. Still, the 2023 Ford F-350 Super Duty model will remain one of the most stylish options in the heavy-duty segment. Dimensions won’t change, but Ford plans to reduce the size of the headlights and taillights. On top of that, new color options will join the popular Carbonized and Lithium Gray paints.
The new 2023 Ford F-350 Super Duty will have a more sophisticated interior arrangement and a redesigned dashboard. Customers have a choice of two bed sizes, however, only the standard cabin with a long box is available. The XL trim level comes included with a non-touch infotainment system, which may improve the Super Duty. The XLT grade level has an 8.0-inch touchscreen with Apple CarPlay, Android Auto, Wi-Fi, and Amazon Alexa. The rest include a 12.0-inch touchscreen and a Sync4 infotainment system with wireless phone connectivity for Android Auto and Apple CarPlay. Additionally, Blue Oval will incorporate a variety of driver-assistance technologies, including additional cameras, blind-spot monitors, and an automatic emergency braking system.
2023 Ford F-350 Super Duty Engine
The powertrain options for the forthcoming 2023 Ford F-350 Super Duty remain the same. Diesel and gasoline engines are now accessible in their current configurations. The basic model is powered by a 7.3-liter V8 petrol engine producing 430 horsepower and 475 lb-ft of torque. According to Ford, this is currently the segment’s most powerful gasoline engine. Additionally, the manufacturer offers a turbocharged diesel engine for improved performance. This truck’s 6.7-liter PowerStroke diesel engine produces up to 475 horsepower and 1050 lb-ft of torque. Additionally, when properly equipped, Super Duty trucks can tow around 37,000 pounds. According to some reports, the diesel engine will have significantly more torque, but Ford has not confirmed this.
The price of the brand-new 2023 Ford F-350 Super Duty will now start at around $36,500. It is a small jump in price, given how significant the changes are. Blue Oval manufacturer will also introduce new optional packages and more. The sales will begin later in 2022, most likely next fall.
