As the automotive industry continues to struggle through numerous supply chain constraints, production and sales have suffered accordingly. The 2022 Ford Super Duty is no stranger to this phenomenon after being subjected to multiple production cuts over the past few months, while the line of pickups has also lost some non-critical features, temporarily, as The Blue Oval attempts to keep its assembly lines rolling amid the chip shortage. Now, however, retail orders for the 2022 Ford Super Duty have been cut off altogether, according to the model’s official site.
“Due to high demand, the current model year is no longer available for retail order,” the site reads. “Limited inventory may be available at selected dealers. Contact your dealer for more information.” This is similar to the message FoMoCo added to its 2022 Lincoln Navigator site last week, as the luxury SUV is now only available for custom orders, while certain trims and features aren’t currently available at all.
2022 Ford Super Duty production at the Ford Kentucky Truck plant has been impacted numerous times this year alone, as that facility was down to one shift for a week back in February, and was also completely down for one week back in March. Additionally, Ford added a multicontour seat delete option for the Super Duty earlier this month, as well as a spray-in bedliner removal option for Lariat trims in March.
Now, the 2022 Super Duty joins a host of other Blue Oval models that are no longer available for customer order in the 2022 model year, including the Ford Mustang Mach-E – which was cut off for retail orders one week ago, the Ford Bronco last month, and the Ford Maverick back in January. As Ford Authority reported in September, the Super Duty will receive a more comprehensive redesign in 2023 following a refresh for the 2020 model year and some additional changes that took place for the 2022 model year.
