Earlier this month, Ford Authority spies captured a 2023 Ford Super Duty prototype out testing for the very first time. In the days since, we’ve seen even more prototypes emerge, including a SuperCab and Crew Cab dually. Now, Ford Authority spies are giving us our very first look at the 2023 Ford Super Duty interior, too.
From this singular 2023 Ford Super Duty interior photo, we can see a steering wheel that’s very similar in design to the 2021 Ford F-150, though the rest of the cabin is covered up. That includes the dashboard, infotainment screen, and gauge cluster, concealing the changes that Ford has in store for the larger F-Series pickup, which is getting a redesign for the 2023 model year, as Ford Authority reported last month.
The 2022 Super Duty just received a host of updates, including an all-new, landscape-oriented 12-inch center touch screen, similar to what’s found in the 2021 F-150, which comes standard with SYNC 4 on Lariat and above models. SYNC voice control and a 4.2-inch center screen remain standard on XL series trucks with SYNC 3 available, while an 8-inch center touch screen and SYNC 3 are standard on XLT trimmed 2022 Ford Super Duty pickups.
Given these recent updates and the fact that the 2021 F-150 comes with a standard 8-inch touchscreen and SYNC 4, it’s not unreasonable to expect something similar for the 2023 Super Duty. It’s also quite possible that the interior of this Super Duty prototype is covered up to conceal a BlueCruise sensor setup, which would be located above the steering wheel.
Back in June, Ford Authority 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 BlueCruise feature on the 2023 Super Duty.
