As Ford Authority reported early last month, the Ford Super Duty is due to receive a redesign for the 2023 model year. This comes on the heels of a refresh for the 2020 model year that consisted of revised styling, new tech, and the addition of Ford’s 7.3L Godzilla V8, among other changes. The 2022 Super Duty lineup is also receiving a host of upgrades, including new interior and exterior color options, improved tech features, and the addition of some new and revised appearance packages. Regardless, Ford Authority spies have captured a 2023 Ford Super Duty prototype testing for the very first time, giving us a sneak peek at what to expect from the forthcoming redesign.
This 2023 Ford Super Duty prototype is heavily camouflaged, as one might expect, making it difficult to discern the truck’s finer styling changes. However, this regular cab dually model retains the basic overall shape of the current-gen Super Duty, making it instantly recognizable, even under layers of camo. The front end, in particular, is completely covered up, with the grille and headlights barely visible, meaning that the front fascia is very likely going to be revised.
Down the sides, we can see that this truck has rather wide fender flares both in the front and in the rear, while the familiar Ford F-Series styling line present at the top of the door is still there. Moving to the back of the truck, we see more of the same heavy camo covering the tailgate and taillights that is present up front, concealing potential changes here as well.
In the meantime, 2022 Super Duty buyers will enjoy a variety of updates, including a 12-inch center touch screen with SYNC 4 on Lariat and above models, a new Lariat Sport Appearance Package, a new Atlas Blue exterior color, and Baja, Navy Pier, and Light Slade interior themes, while the Black Appearance Package is now available for XLT models.
As Ford Authority previously reported, the 2022 Super Duty will lose its underhood service light, while the Tremor Off-Road Package will no longer be available on XLT trimmed trucks. Recently, 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 new BlueCruise feature at some point in the near future.
