As Ford Authority reported back in March, the 2022 Ford Super Duty will feature a few updates including new interior and exterior color options, upgraded tech features, and the addition of some new and revised appearance packages. However, it’s also losing one feature present in the 2021 Ford Super Duty – the underhood service light – which illuminates the engine bay when the hood is raised – Ford Authority has learned from sources familiar with Ford’s product plans. This omission appears to apply to all trim levels and models.
Though the 2022 Ford Super Duty will be losing its underhood service light, it will gain quite a few other features. As Ford Authority exclusively reported earlier this week, that includes standard four-wheel-drive for both King Ranch and Platinum-trimmed trucks, which currently come standard with two-wheel-drive.
The 2022 Super Duty will also receive a new 12-inch infotainment screen similar to the one in the 2021 Ford F-150. The new screen is standard equipment on Lariat, King Ranch, Platinum, and Limited trims and features Ford’s SYNC 4 software with wireless Apple CarPlay and Android Auto compatibility, along with SYNC AppLink apps. 2022 Super Duty XL trim models come equipped with a 4.2-inch screen, while XLT trims come with a standard 8-inch touchscreen.
For 2022, the Super Duty gains one new exterior color, Atlas Blue, and three new interior color schemes – Baja for Lariat-trimmed trucks, and Navy Pier and Light Slate for Limited trims. The Black Appearance Package is now available on 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.
A new Lariat Sport Appearance Package is also available for 2022 models that includes a body-color grille, bumpers, and exterior mirrors, as well as a chrome exhaust tip and black platform running boards.
As Ford Authority exclusively reported earlier this month, 2022 Ford Super Duty production is scheduled to begin at the Ford Kentucky Truck Plant on July 9th, 2021, and at the Ford Ohio Assembly Plant on July 22th, 2021. However, it is worth noting that the ongoing semiconductor chip shortage may very well change those plans.
