If we can trust the latest reports, the 2023 Ford F-350 Super Duty is about to come completely redesigned. A camouflaged Ford pickup truck, which is believed to be the next-generation Super Duty, has been spotted on the road. We believe that the production model will be ready by the end of the year. We count on all kinds of novelties, starting from a completely new design, new interior, new tech features etc.
Still, we don’t expect to see any radical changes. Just like the new F-150, the 2023 Ford F-350 Super Duty will also come mostly with evolutionary changes, especially when it comes to the chassis and overall design, powertrain and similar things. Some sources speculate about the hybrid version but the officials are still quiet on this matter.
2023 Ford F-350 Super Duty Redesign
Without any doubt, the 2023 F-350 Super Duty redesign will bring a whole lot of novelties, starting from the new styling. The testing model has been spotted on the road but it still comes with a lot of camouflage. So, we can’t talk about styling details, though we are pretty sure that a lot of inspiration will be taken from the light-duty F-150 model.
On the other hand, we don’t expect radical changes in terms of mechanics. Just like in the case of the new F-150, we count on an evolution of the current design, which would bring the same aluminum/HSS platform but probably some revisions regarding suspension setup, which would improve towing and payload capacity even more.
Interior and Trim Levels
Of course, this redesign would bring a completely new interior as well. Naturally, the new dashboard should look pretty similar to the one found in the new F-150, with all those fancy design solutions, finer materials and improved build quality. Furthermore, we count on all kinds of new tech features, including the massive infotainment system, once again borrowed from the light-duty sibling. Furthermore, we are getting reports about semi-autonomous driving technology and similar things.
The trim level organization should remain pretty much the same. So, the offer would start with the XL, which is a pretty basic trim, with essential features only. The XLT will add a couple of things, while the Lariat will remain a well-balanced mid-level option. The King Ranch will continue with lots of exclusive details, the 2023 Ford F-350 Super Duty Platinum will once again be a ticket to the luxury world. Finally, the lineup will end with the Limited trim level. Some sources also speculate about the Tremor package in the new F-350. This package is all about off-road upgrades, such as suspension lift, skid plates and similar things.
2023 Ford F-350 Super Duty Engines
Under the hood, we don’t expect to see bigger surprises. Base versions will probably continue with the good-old 6.2-liter V8, which puts out around 385 horsepower and 430 pound-feet of torque. Of course, also count on the relatively new 7.3-liter V8, which puts out around 430 horsepower and 475 pound-feet of torque. Finally, there is the diesel version, equipped with a 6.7-liter turbodiesel V8, which puts out 475 horsepower and 1.050 pound-feet of torque.
Of course, each engine could come with some power and torque boost. When it comes to the transmission, the base engine will probably continue with a six-speed unit. The other two will continue with a 10-speed automatic.
2023 Ford F-350 Super Duty Release Date and Price
We expect to see the 2023 Ford F-350 Super Duty sometime in the last quarter of the year. The starting price should go around 40.000 dollars, while models like Chevy Silverado 3500HD and Ram 3500 will remain key competitors.
