The refreshed 2022 Ford Super Duty was revealed back in early March with some new interior and exterior color options, upgraded tech features, and the addition of some new and revised appearance packages. Now, Ford Authority has learned from sources familiar with Ford’s product plans that 2022 Ford Super Duty production is scheduled to begin in July.
2021 Ford Super Duty production will end at the Ford Kentucky Truck Plant on July 8th, 2021, and the Ford Ohio Assembly Plant on July 21st, 2021. Order banks for the 2022 model opened up back on March 15th, and 2022 Ford Super Duty production is currently scheduled to begin at the Kentucky Truck Plant on July 9th, 2021, and at the Ohio Assembly Plant on July 22th, 2021.
However, it is worth noting that the ongoing semiconductor chip shortage may very well change these plans or disrupt production altogether. 2021 Super Duty production has been severely impacted by the shortage, leading Ford to stash thousands of unfinished models near the Kentucky Truck Plant in recent weeks.
Regardless, when it does launch, the 2022 Super Duty will sport a new 12-inch infotainment screen that’s 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, Android Auto compatibility, and SYNC AppLink apps. XL series 2022 Super Duty models come equipped with a 4.2-inch screen, while XLT trims come with an 8-inch touchscreen as standard equipment.
On the outside, Ford has added 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.
The 2022 Super Duty is also available with 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.
