Earlier this week, Ford Authority spies captured a 2023 Ford Super Duty prototype out testing for the very first time. That particular model was a regular cab dually, but now, a 2023 Ford Super Duty SuperCrew prototype has been spied testing as well. This new prototype is likely an F-350 or F-450, since it’s a dually, but is otherwise wearing similar camo to the previously-spotted regular cab prototype.
As Ford Authority reported last month, the Ford Super Duty is scheduled 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 updates, including new interior and exterior color options, tech features, and new and revised appearance packages.
As was the case with the previously-seen prototype, this 2023 Ford Super Duty SuperCrew is wearing heavy camo, which conceals the truck’s styling changes. The overall shape of the pickup is quite similar to the current-gen model, however, including the presence of the familiar Ford F-Series styling line present at the top of the front doors.
Interestingly, this prototype is not fitted with the same large fender flares as the regular cab model spied earlier this week. Otherwise, it’s virtually identical, right down to the black wheels, though this new prototype also has a sliding rear window. The front and rear portions of the truck are covered up completely, likely hiding some styling revisions.
In addition to the previously announced updates, the 2022 Super Duty will lose its underhood service light, as Ford Authority recently reported, while the Tremor Off-Road Package will no longer be available on XLT trimmed trucks. Back in June, Ford Authority spies spotted a pair of Super Duty trucks wearing AV (autonomous vehicle) hardware, used for hands-free driving technology, which could indicate that Ford plans on introducing its new BlueCruise feature to the Super Duty at some point in the near future.
