2023 Ford Super Duty Debuts With New V8, Pro Power Onboard

Over the past several months, Ford Authority has reported on the 2023 Ford Super Duty extensively, revealing many of the redesigned pickup’s new features, styling cues, and technical details, while also showing off a host of spy photos and teasers released by the automaker itself. It was all leading up to this big moment – the official reveal of the all-new Super Duty, which will launch with not only fresh interior and exterior styling, but also a brand new powerplant and various other features.

On the outside, the 2023 Ford Super Duty takes more of an evolutionary approach than a revolutionary one, which is understandable given the truck’s enduring popularity. A grand total of seven front grille designs are available depending on trim and configuration, while Ford’s signature “C-clamp” headlights bring the Super Duty in line with the rest of the automaker’s truck lineup, with LED units now available across the range and functional side vents aiding cooling efforts.

A variety of packages will continue to be available, including the Tremor Off-Road, STX, Sport, and Black Appearance Packages, as well as the new XL Off-Road Package, which is available on F-250 or F-350 models equipped with four-wheel drive and single rear wheels, adding 33-inch tires, a raised air dam, water-fording axle vent tubes, skid plates, and an electronic locking rear differential.

Inside the cabin, the 2023 Super Duty features a host of changes as well, with a single binnacle design and either a standard 8-inch touchscreen for the XL or a 12-inch display that’s standard on higher trims, a customizable 12-inch digital instrument cluster, an available wireless charging pad, four USB ports, Max Recline Seats, an eight-speaker B&O sound system or optional 18-speaker B&O Unleashed system, and a center console slot that’s designed to hold a tablet in an upright position for easy viewing. The new Super Duty is the first pickup in the United States with embedded 5G capability, and is available with a full suite of Ford Pro services – including the Upfit Integration System – to boot.

In terms of powertrains, Ford says that the 2023 Super Duty offers the most towing, payload, torque, and horsepower of any heavy-duty full-size truck, but the big news here is the addition of a brand new 6.8L V8 as the model’s standard powerplant – a notable detail that Ford Authority was the first to report earlier this month. The automaker isn’t talking power figures just yet, but the new engine lineup will consist of the new 6.8L V8, as well as a more powerful version of the 7.3L V8 Godzilla, the 6.7L V8 Power Stroke diesel, and a new high-output version of the Power Stroke that features a unique turbo, tune, and upgraded exhaust manifolds.

All of these powerplants are mated to Ford’s 10-speed automatic transmission, while four-wheel drive is standard on all XLT trimmed trucks and above. The automaker’s Pro Power Onboard feature is also making its debut on the 2023 Ford Super Duty, offering 2.0 kW of portable power, while a host of driver-assist technologies including Onboard Scales with Smart Hitch, the 360-Degree Trailer Camera System, Blind Spot Information System for Fifth Wheel & Gooseneck, Tailgate Down Camera and Tailgate Down Reverse Sensing System, Pro Trailer Hitch Assist, and Trailer Navigation aim to make hauling and towing much simpler.

Ford Pro Upfit Integration System available spring 2023. Preproduction model shown with optional features. Available early 2023.

On top of those features, the 2023 Super Duty also offers a full suite of safety and security tech including Intelligent Adaptive Cruise Control with Stop-and-Go and Lane Centering, Trailer Theft Alert, Vehicle Security, Fleet Start Inhibit, Forward/Reverse Sensing System, Front and Rear Brake Assist, and a full-color head-up display. Meanwhile, Ford Power-Up software updates help keep the Super Duty up-to-date over time.

The 2023 Ford Super Duty will continue to be produced at the Kentucky Truck plant and Ohio Assembly plant and is expected to launch in early 2023, with some trims and features available starting next spring.

    Not sure about the interior’s single-binnacle design, but Ill still buy one. Take my money…

    The model badging looks stupid now that it runs the length of the door. Also really not liking the new front grills. Everything else is great though.

    1. Beardman

      Badging is over kill definitely

  3. Anders Nyquist

    I just hope they don’t mess with the XL trim and force you to add all the bells and whistles. Keep it simple.

    I’m not sure how I feel about the new fender badges, they seem a bit large. I do like the interior and it is absolutely an improvement over the previous truck.


    Front grill reminds me of a 1980’s GMC Econovan. Nearly identical. Still better features than a gmc denali 2500 I guess

  5. NeverSeenClam

    Identical to a GMC Ford van huh

    What’s wrong with this part, I can’t find it. Emission sensor, or oil deposit, It is for 2019 ford ranger xlt 2.3l. The scanner shows the code: U060E. The part I need is MoFoCo M799G, KA1A-6D610-AB. Thanks.

    So why waste all the engineering and design when you just could of applied Ford nameplates to a GM?
    Note “some packages available by next spring” the others not so much. Another vehicle full of dreams that will be non existent.

  9. Keith

    Guess I will buy a GM and save money, what a disappointment for the long wait.

  10. PT

    As soon as I saw all the foot holes I shut the introduction off.

  11. Guitarded

    All of these people complaining about the side steps and the bumper steps. How dare Ford try to make the box a little more accessible. I mean, trying to make it easier to get stuff in and out of the box? The audacity, right?

    Lolz. I’m rolling my eyes at you people.

    1. Shawnski

      I agree, they make sense. Who cares who came out with i first. Children…

      1. ray

        GM stole the bumper steps idea from Ranch Hand bumpers. My brother bought a Ranch Hand bumper for his ’92 f350 in ’92 with bumper steps (their idea).

        1. Robert.Walter

          These are all obviously modernized copies of stirrups which have been around 2 BC.

          Debate solved.

    I have had a 2022 F250 Lariat on order since November 2021. Recently communication from Ford they are going to build week of November 28th. That’s 14 months from order to delivery. Price has gone up more than $1,000 and any incentives at order time are now gone. I ended up ordering / buying a 2022 GMC 2500HD AT4, but did not load it up with navigation safety drive devices, HUD, running boards, so it was 8 weeks from order to delivery on January 2022. I’ve had it to utilize all this year (minus the heated / cooled seats, which not sure ever going to see those). Personally, new 2023 Ford Super Duty looks much better than 2022 model, but new 2023 GM Heavy Duty looks better than Super Duty. Comes down to personal preference, but want to see more drivetrain / suspension / work focus performance and economy vs pretty grills / headlights, and bigger infotainment screens. Regardless, order anything now, it’s over a year away, guaranteed to be at least $1000 higher, and delivery is quickly approaching $2000 a vehicle. I live 50 miles from the GMC factory. At 57 years old, this was my first, and last, new vehicle. The F250 I ordered is going to be refused when it comes in. Someone who has been waiting a very long time is going to be very happy.

      I had a friend order a 22 lariat in august 21 and he had it in november 21. So not everything is delayed. And if you order they honor the price at the time you order even should the price increase. If the dealer is telling you otherwise he’s lying to you. Ford requires them to honor the price.

    I have a 2022 Lariat Super Duty. I like what I have better. Glad I didn’t wait for the 23. Glad to read that led lights will be offered for all trim lines. I love mine but had to order a Lariat to get the option of led headlamps.

  14. Terell Stormer

    I want a bronco because it’s my favorite and I would love to be f financed and driving by my birthday which is November 4th

  15. cj

    Thought the Chevy HD had the worst looking grille….this matches it ..i pay extra not to have that grille…unreal…

  16. Chris D.

    Seven grill designs based on trim level…wow! Not a huge fan of the one above with the chrome horizontal bars; it’s a little too busy looking for my taste. But the black grill that comes in that appearance package looks great. I’ll have to find pics of the other five to see what the rest look like.


    How about our engineers design a suspension by copying the Germans? They get it .
    We still have to get upgrades from aftermarket. Compression , rebound ,unsprung weight … come on man! Every Ford I own rattles its interior and it pisses me off. From the F250 XLT, the HDF150 or the Mustang GT. Only until recently did the Mustang kinda come around. Kenny Brown figured it out 25 years ago…..
