The current generation of Ford’s 3/4-ton pickup has been around for a while and that’s why the 2022 model came with a couple of updates, the updates that should keep it competitive for a few more years before we see a complete overhaul. So, what we expect is that the 2023 Ford F-250 will be a typical carryover model, without more important updates. Still, minor tweaks are always possible, especially in terms of new standard and available equipment.
So, you may count on a familiar layout, on a layout that still has a lot of great things to offer. This is one of the most capable trucks in its class but has other qualities. It is refined, comfortable and easy to drive. We particularly like the wide engine choice, which includes a super-capable turbodiesel, as well as a massive 7.3-liter V8.
Since the 2023 Ford F-250 probably won’t feature more significant updates, we presume it will come sometime in the second half of 2022.
2023 Ford F-250 Redesign
Design-wise, the 2023 Ford F-250 shouldn’t feature any bigger changes. Still, we won’t exclude the possibility to see minor updates, just like we did in the 2022 model. To remind you, the 2022 model comes with a couple of interesting novelties, such as the new Atlas Blue color, as well as the Lariat Sport appearance package, which includes a number of interesting styling details. Some of the highlights are a color-matched grille, bumpers, and exterior mirrors, as well as black running boards and chrome exhaust tips.
The 2023 Ford F-250 might come with similar kinds of updates, but we have no doubt that the overall design will remain the same. This pickup shares most of its parts with the previous-generation F-150, but also comes with upgraded suspension and reinforced chassis – to provide better working capabilities. It offers a great balance between capability and comfort, so it’s no wonder it is one of the most popular choices among truckers.
The story with the 2023 Ford F-250 interior is pretty much the same as with the exterior. We might see a couple of new things, but the overall layout should remain the same. The 2022 model has brought a couple of new color schemes, but the overall layout remained the same. The next year’s model shouldn’t be any different, though we could see minor updates again.
We have no doubt that the offer of cab styles will remain the same. Also, we count on two familiar bed sizes – 6.75-foot and 8-foot options.
Yearly updates usually bring a couple of new things to the list of standard equipment. So, we might see something similar from the 2023 Ford F-250. For example, the 2022 model has brought a larger 12.0-inch touchscreen and new infotainment system, while base models now include an 8-inch unit as standard. So, we might see similar novelties in the next year, though it’s hard to imagine what could be the novelties in terms of tech features. On the other hand, new driver-assistance features are always welcome, especially in lower-grade models.
2023 Ford F-250 Engines
While updates in other aspects are always possible, we doubt that the 2023 Ford F-250 could feature any change under the hood. In other words, we expect to see three familiar engine options on the offer. Naturally, base versions should continue with a 6.2-liter V8, which puts out around 385 horsepower and 430 pound-feet of torque. Also, there is a new 7.3-liter V8, which features a max output of 430 horsepower and 475 pound-feet of torque. Finally, the most capable models come with a 6.7-liter turbodiesel V8, which is good for about 475 horsepower and 1.050 pound-feet of torque.
With the base engine, this pickup can tow up to 15.000 pounds, or 15.800 pounds with the fifth wheel. Models with the 7.3-liter engine can tow 15.000 pounds conventionally and 19.500 pounds with the fifth wheel. Finally, the turbodiesel features a max conventional towing rating of 20.000 pounds and 22.800 pounds with the fifth wheel.
2023 Ford F-250 Release Date and Price
Since there are no significant changes to come, we presume that the 2023 Ford F-250 will hit the market sometime in the second half of 2022. Bigger price changes aren’t expected either, so base models should go around 36.500 dollars. Key competitors are models like Ram 2500, Chevy Silverado 2500 and GMC Sierra 2500.
