2023 Ford Super Duty Spied Wearing Less Camo Than Ever

Ford Authority spies spotted a 2023 Ford Super Duty prototype for the very first time last October, previewing the pickup’s upcoming refresh. Since then, those same spies have spotted a host of other 2023 Super Duty prototypes out driving around in various configurations, ranging from a single cab dually to a SuperCrew dually, a SuperCab with a standard bed, a Platinum-trimmed model with black wheels, and an F-450 towing a gooseneck trailer. Later on, we were treated to our first look at the refreshed Super Duty’s interior, which was followed by a glimpse of the bare-bones XL cabin. Now, Ford Authority spies have spotted a 2023 Ford Super Duty SuperCrew prototype wearing considerably less camo than the previously-spied models, giving us a good look at the pickup’s refreshed front and rear ends.

This 2023 Ford Super Duty prototype features a familiar look up front, one that isn’t terribly different from the current model, yet also clearly influenced by the all-new 2022 Ford Maverick and redesigned next-generation Ford Ranger. The familiar split twin-bar treatment is present in the center, with a camo’d Ford oval, which is flanked by the automaker’s signature C-clamp headlights that surround additional lighting, including an amber turn signal in the center.

Moving down the side, we get a better look at this prototype’s wheel design, but otherwise, not much has apparently changed in the center of the 2023 Super Duty, as the shape of the cab carries over from the current-gen model.

In the rear, we get our first look at the new taillight design present on the 2023 Ford Super Duty, which is a bit different than the current model. Red sections on the top and bottom are intersected by a black element, while the white reverse lamps are vertically-oriented and placed off-center towards the tailgate. Everything else, including the rear glass, is covered in checkered camo. It’s unclear what trim level this particular prototype is, but it appears to be either a Lariat or perhaps an XLT with some sort of black appearance package.

On the inside, the 2023 Super Duty will feature an overall look that’s similar to the redesigned 2021 Ford F-150. That means a new steering wheel, gauge cluster, and likely larger infotainment screens, as well as the addition of SYNC 4. 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 last 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.

    No mention of the bed step located behind the obviously padded camo in the area in front of the rear wheels.

    No need for camo covering. Just do the usual. Change the grill, reconfigure the red and clear plastic on the rear lens, and call it a new model. Been doing that for years with Escape/Edge/F150.

      Not exactly. The 2021 F-150, while based on the 2015 truck has completely new sheetmetal with exception of the roof panel. We can expect the ’23 Super Duty to take a similar path.

    Kudos for not jumping on the no bumper Grill only front end design that seems tobe the norm these days. Looking at you Toyota and GM to an extent. also it appears you should be able to see over the hood, which is an improvement over the current design.
