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 wheels, an 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.
