The 2023 Ford Super Duty is an all-new model, representing a redesign for the popular pickup, even though it may look quite a bit like the current-gen example. There are many new features present throughout the 2023 Super Duty that differentiate it from its predecessor, however, and that list includes a brand new cab, too.
“Yeah so the cab is new, it has the P702 F-150 cab and also even the interior,” Ford Super Duty engineering manager, Aaron Bresky, told Ford Authority Executive Editor, Alex Luft, at the truck’s reveal in Kentucky. “It’s not the P558 wrapped up in new jeans and a pair of shoes, it is a significant change.”
Aside from its brand new cab, the 2023 Ford Super Duty is also equipped with a host of other new features, including an enhanced, integrated tailgate step, as well as a brand new 6.8L V8 as the model’s standard powerplant – a notable detail that Ford Authority was the first to report. That particular engine doesn’t have a name like most of The Blue Oval’s other offerings, however. One notable omission from the new Super Duty is Ford’s BlueCruise hands-free highway driving feature, partly because it isn’t currently operable with a trailer.
Because Super Duty owners tend to tow a lot with their pickups, that was a no-go, and also the reason why Ford chose to beef up the frame of the new pickup, as Ford Authority reported last month. But when it comes to the off-road-focused Tremor, Ford remains open to the possibility of offering it with a front electronic-locking differential, a feature that’s present in several of the model’s competitors including the refreshed 2024 Chevy Silverado ZR2 and 2024 GMC Sierra AT4X – which have a front e-locker differential – as well as the Ram 2500 Power Wagon, which is equipped with an electronic-locking front differential.
