2022 Ford Super Duty Owners Are Highly Satisfied With Their Pickups

The Ford Super Duty has faired quite well in some recent owner surveys, as the F-350 was named as one of Consumer ReportsMost Satisfying Trucks of 2022 while the F-250 made the cut in the same survey back in 2021. Now, the 2022 Ford Super Duty is being recognized as the top ranking large heavy-duty truck in J.D. Power’s 2022 U.S. APEAL Study – which saw Ford rank above the mass market segment average and Lincoln land below the premium segment average – joining the Ford Bronco Sport in that regard as well.

The 2022 Ford Super Duty led the large heavy-duty pickup segment in this particular survey, beating out the Ram 2500 and 3500 to take home top honors. Meanwhile, the mass market segment of the automotive industry as a whole experienced a four point decline over last year, while the premium segment increased by eight points.

J.D. Power’s APEAL Study measures owners’ emotional attachment and their level of excitement with their new vehicle by asking them to consider 37 different attributes ranging from the sense of comfort they feel when climbing into the driver’s seat to the exhilaration they get when they step on the accelerator. Those responses are then used to calculate an overall APEAL Index score measured on a 1,000-point scale. The 2022 U.S. APEAL Study is based on responses from 84,165 owners of new 2022 model-year vehicles who were surveyed after 90 days of ownership. This year, overall satisfaction dropped by one point, its first decline since 2014 and just the fifth in 27 years, which can be attributed to one major factor.

“The most important factor leading to the industry decline this year is owners’ perception of their vehicle’s fuel economy,” said David Amodeo, director of global automotive at J.D. Power. “The study was fielded as fuel prices were experiencing a meteoric rise, and that pinch at the pump is conveyed in lower vehicle satisfaction. Battery-electric vehicles have not been negatively affected by the increase in fuel costs but do have issues related to battery range and charging time.”

    I would of liked to purchased a 2022 F 250 superduty however with wait of 30 weeks plus it wasn’t even feasible to order one and wait a 1/2 ,year. I guess I’ll just drive my 2017 until Ford sorts out its problems.

    Really like my 22′ F-350 Lariat with the 7.3L V8. First vehicle I ever ordered so it was nice getting it custom with every option I wanted – waited 7 months for it to be built and didn’t have to sacrifice any options. Fuel economy (and the requirement for a subscription for the connected nav system to work….to which I have not subscribed) is the only real downside (though I’m averaging around 15.5 actual mpg per tank in mostly highway driving) but it is a joy to drive. Used to have a 2012 F-150 Lariat ecoboost and the superduty is much more fun and comfortable.

    Wondering why the F450 was not mentioned. We have a 2022 F450 King Ranch which we use to pull our 5th wheel and to haul our Arctic Fox truck camper. We also tow a cargo trailer when we have the camper on. The F450 website gives lots of information for anybody considering the best tow vehicle for the r.v market which is huge.
    Except for the poor quality Continental tires,which are stock, and No tire choices from Ford, we really like our truck. When we picked up our truck,we drove straight to a tire shop and had Michelin xds2 installed. Look forward to comments, Cheers.😃 Hoffys.

      I ordered my 2022 F250 lariat on Jan 29 2022 and took delivery April 17 2022. Only 2 items I kept off was the trailer back up dial and the surround camera system. Have the 7.3L with dual batteries and alternators.

    I know I’ll enjoy my Super Duty when it arrives, ordered my F350 Nov 2021 and was notified that Ford will start to build it July 25th. It’s been a long and frustrating wait.

      Ordered my 2022 F250 Super Duty diesel back in November 2021. Received one email from Ford saying it was delayed. Dealer is no help at all and not another word from Ford. Disgusted.

    Ordered a 2022 F250 diesel in January. Received a non-descript email in March saying, “Sometimes certain features or options can lengthen the time before a vehicle is scheduled for production.” No communication since and the Dealer is zero help. Most companies would put a little effort into servicing customers who are willing to spend $80k+ on one of their products. I’m not asking for much, just a little communication on anticipated build timing. Very frustrated. Ford, treat your customers better!!!

    I put my order in on 2/28/22 for a Platinum Dsl and received an email 4 weeks ago saying Ford was experiencing supply chain issues. Still don’t have a build date or VIN for my truck. I understand Ford is dealing with delays but I agree with a lot of people that they need to do a better job of communicating with their customers.

    I ordered the lariat diesel value package, with 20 “ wheels. The order was placed 8/21 and received it 3/22 I couldn’t be more pleased with it. I work out of my truck and spend a lot of time in it. The diesel has more maintenance, but for what it delivers it’s worth it.
