2023 Ford Super Duty XL Interior Spied Up Close For The First Time

Ford Authority spies captured a 2023 Ford Super Duty regular cab dually prototype out testing for the very first time back in October, followed by a SuperCrew dually and a SuperCab with a standard bed just a few days later, as well as an F-350 Chassis Cab prototype. Ford Authority spies then captured the 2023 Super Duty’s interior on film for the very first time, showing off a design that’s very similar to the 2021 Ford F-150. Now, we have far better, up-close photos of the interior from a 2023 Ford Super Duty XL prototype to share.

These photos show off the next-generation Super Duty’s steering wheel in its entirety, which has a design that’s nearly identical to the one present in the newest F-150. The gauge cluster is also new, but in this case, features analog gauges on the sides with a digital screen in the middle and is not a fully digital cluster, which isn’t a surprise given the fact that this is a base XL trimmed model. There’s a column shifter present on the steering column as well, but perhaps the most interesting thing about this 2023 Ford Super Duty XL prototype is its infotainment screen.

The screen present in this Super Duty prototype looks similar to the optional 8-inch Sync 3 unit present in the current-gen XL trim pickup, but the way that it’s integrated into the dash is different, with a redesigned center stack visible underneath a partial covering. Currently, Sync 3 with the larger 8-inch screen is a $450 option on XL-trimmed Super Duty pickups, but that also requires purchasing the Power Equipment Group, which is a $915 option.

It’s worth noting that the 2021-2022 Ford F-150 comes with a standard 8-inch Sync 4 touchscreen, so it stands to reason that the next-generation Super Duty will follow suit. After all, 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.

In addition to exterior styling changes and revised tech features, it’s also possible the 2023 Super Duty will introduce Ford’s BlueCruise highway self-driving feature to the model, as Ford Authority spies spotted a pair of Super Duty trucks driving around wearing AV (autonomous vehicle) hardware, used for hands-free driving technology, back in June.

Brett's lost track of all the Fords he's owned over the years and how much he's spent modifying them, but his current money pits include an S550 Mustang and 13th gen F-150.

    The more F-150 styling and features that can be carried over to the Super Duty the better in my opinion. Looking forward to getting an F-350 in a couple of years. Timing is great with this refresh!

    every year, I pray for an extended cab version, with
    4 full doors, and no suicide style. but they don’t want
    to “copy” Chevy so there ya go.

    More ugly Grey…so sick of it.

    Upper F250 trim levels should get the F150’s interior improvements. Hopefully a host of other less obvious changes to follow.

    I keep holding off ordering a new F450 in hopes that ford will finally allow led headlamps to be ordered in a xlt trim truck. If they would have a XLT optioned like a 302a F150 i would have ordered it yesterday.
