The Ford Super Duty lineup received a refresh for the 2020 model year consisting of revised styling, new tech, and the addition of Ford’s 7.3L Godzilla V8, among other changes. The 2022 Ford Super Duty lineup is also receiving a host of upgrades, including new interior and exterior color options, improved tech features, and the addition of some new and revised appearance packages. However, change is inevitable in the automotive world, and according to Automotive News, the Super Duty will undergo a more comprehensive redesign in 2023.
AN doesn’t provide much additional information about what this redesign might look like but does note that the Super Duty will still be offered with a diesel engine, which is no surprise, even though the F-150 recently dropped Ford’s 3.0L Power Stroke as an option. Given how competitive this space is, we imagine that Ford will once again revise its top offering’s output, however, to stay ahead of the competition in terms of horsepower and torque.
In the meantime, 2022 Super Duty buyers will enjoy a host of upgrades, including an all-new, landscape-oriented 12-inch center touch screen, similar to what’s found in the 2021 Ford F-150, which comes standard with SYNC 4 on Lariat and above models. A 4.2-inch center screen remains standard on XL series trucks with SYNC 3 available as an option, while an 8-inch center touch screen and SYNC 3 are standard on XLT trimmed 2022 Ford Super Duty pickups.
For 2022, the Super Duty adds a new Lariat Sport Appearance Package that includes body-color bumpers, exterior mirrors, and grille, as well as a chrome exhaust tip and black platform running boards. The Black Appearance Package is now available for XLT models and includes 20-inch Ebony Black-painted premium wheels, body-color front and rear bumpers, grille bars, six-inch Ebony Black running boards, and front and rear black Blue Ovals. Atlas Blue joins the exterior color palette, while Baja, Navy Pier, and Light Slade interior themes/colors are also available.
The 2022 Super Duty will lose its underhood service light, while the Tremor Off-Road Package will no longer be available on XLT trimmed trucks. Recently, spies spotted a pair of Super Duty trucks driving around wearing AV (autonomous vehicle) hardware, used for hands-free driving technology, which could indicate that Ford plans on introducing its new BlueCruise feature soon as well.
