The refreshed 2023 Ford Super Duty will usher in a host of changes for the pickup when it debuts later this year, with order banks set to open up on October 17th, 2022, as Ford Authority reported last month. In the meantime, 2022 Ford Super Duty retail order banks closed back in April as demand for that model exceeded the automaker’s production capacity, a common occurrence in today’s supply constrained world. Now, sources familiar with the matter have told Ford Authority that some 2022 Ford Super Duty crossbed toolbox options are no longer available, too.
This list includes the Crossbed Toolbox (option code 62X) and Crossbed Toolbox Premium (62Y), which are no longer available to order. However, the Crossbed Toolbox in matte black (90B) and bright (90P) are both still available. All of these toolboxes are official Ford Accessories that were/are optional on all Super Duty models. This deletion is nothing new, however, as the 2022 Ford Ranger also dropped its Premium Crossbed Toolbox and Black Aluminum Crossbed Toolbox back in March.
Meanwhile, 2022 Ford Super Duty owners continue to be highly satisfied with their pickups, according to J.D. Power’s recently-released 2022 U.S. APEAL Study, which topped the large heavy-duty truck segment in that regard. The Super Duty beat out all of its competition to take home that honor, with the the Ram 2500 and 3500 coming in as the two runners-up.
2023 Super Duty production is currently scheduled 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.
