2023 Ford Super Duty Order Banks Open Up In October

As Ford Authority reported back in September of 2021, the 2023 Ford Super Duty is set to undergo a mid-cycle refresh that will introduce revised styling inside and out, as well as some new tech features. Since then, Ford Authority spies have spotted a number of 2023 Ford Super Duty prototypes out driving around wearing varying levels of camouflage, giving us a sneak peek as to what to expect from the pickup’s exterior and interior design. Now, sources familiar with the matter have told Ford Authority that 2023 Ford Super Duty order banks are set to open up on October 17th, 2022.

Additionally, 2023 Super Duty production is currently set to begin at the Kentucky Truck plant on January 3rd, 2023, as well as the Ohio Assembly plant on February 13th, 2023. As always, however, these dates are subject to change in a world full of supply chain constraints, and as of now, only apply to fleet and commercial vehicle production. It’s currently unclear if retail units will start being produced on these same dates as well.

In the meantime, Ford Authority spies have spotted a number of 2023 Ford Super Duty prototypes out testing in recent months as the long-running model prepares to undergo a refresh, including a single cab dually, a Crew Cab dually, a SuperCab with a standard bed, a Platinum-trimmed model with black wheelsan F-450 towing a gooseneck trailer, a Crew Cab prototype wearing considerably less camo, another offering up a view of the truck’s new bed step, and an F-450 King Ranch dually, as well as our first look at the refreshed Super Duty’s interior, a glimpse of the bare-bones XL cabin, and an assembly line video showing off the inside in better detail.

On the outside, the 2023 Ford Super Duty incorporates styling influenced by the all-new 2022 Ford Maverick and next-generation Ford Ranger, with a split twin-bar grille and C-clamp headlights, as well as a new taillight design in the rear. Inside the cabin, the pickup features an overall look that’s very similar to the 2021 Ford F-150, with a new steering wheel, gauge cluster, and likely larger infotainment screens.

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.

    Dear Ford, I’m trying to understand why your new Super Duty truck grill design looks just like a 2002 Chevy van??!!! I thought the bar design was reserved for Chevrolet and now the integrated grill into the headlights? Help!!

    1. Matthew

      Right on. I was really looking forward to this redesign as I’m getting close to buying my dream retirement truck for our RV. So far I’m disappointed.

    Please Ford, change that terrible grill/headlight combo. With this design you have completely abandoned the rugged/serious work ethos that the F250 is known for. This look is soft and silly, it might as well be a Super Duty Rivian.

    I was hoping that the FORD diesel would be upped in horse power to 490 hp and 1100 pounds torque or more. I also hoping that ford can delete the outside push button enter on the door.

    In 2023 there Definitely needs to be a option for 6-speed transmission on the F450. The grill and headlights on the 23 prototype look ridiculous doesn’t even look like a Ford. Ford please use something similar to chrome grill and headlights that is on the F450’s years 20-22 for the new Superduty its the best looking grill/headlight combo actually looks like a ford truck.

    I currently own a 2017 F250 and 2022 F350. Ready to place an order for a 2023 and sell the 2017. If that’s the grill they are using, I won’t buy another new Super Duty until they change that ridiculous looking atrocity. Horrible! I’m hoping this is a head fake and the Platinum will have a nice looking grill like the 2022 that has NOTHING to do with the headlights. Come on FORD. I currently own 5 Ford trucks. the other 3 are F150’s.

  6. TG

    One other thing, the picture of the last truck looks like there is a STUPID step like a Chevrolet on the bed in front of the rear tire. That better not be standard on all trucks. If I wanted a stupid step cut out in the bed I would be buying a CHEVY! Ford used to be a leader…… WTF is going on.

  7. JEF

    That is a god awful lookin grill and the body of the bed does not seem to match the cab very well.

  8. Darrell Lemaster

    That grill has got to go! If I wanted a truck that resembled a Chevy I’d buy a Chevy. I don’t know who’s ideal this was with Ford but they should be fired!
