Each passing model year brings about a host of changes to the automotive world in general, with some new models making their debut, others getting discontinued, and more receiving refreshes or redesigns. That’s true for a variety of Ford models coming for the 2023 and 2024 model years, as there are a host of refreshed and redesigned vehicles set to launch in the ensuing months, each of which we’ve outlined here to prepare us for the new year. If you’d like to check out the list of all the changes coming for international Ford models, you can do so by heading over here.
The refreshed 2023 Ford Escape was revealed back in October bearing revised styling inside and out, with a totally revamped trim level lineup, including the addition of the new ST-Line and Active variants. Inside the cabin, the 2023 Escape offers a standard 8-inch infotainment screen or a larger 13.2-inch unit, both running Sync 4 with standard wireless Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, while a 12.3-inch digital instrument panel cluster is also available. Engine options consist of the turbocharged Ford 1.5L I-3 EcoBoost, Ford 2.0L I-4 EcoBoost, and both hybrid and plug-in hybrid powertrains. Production of the refreshed crossover began earlier this month at the Louisville Assembly plant in Kentucky, with deliveries expected to begin in early 2023.
The 2023 Lincoln Corsair – like its platform mate, the Escape – has also been treated to a refresh for the new model year and debuted in September. The luxurious crossover has also been treated to updated exterior styling and a redesigned interior, as well as Lincoln’s ActiveGlide hands-free highway driving feature. The 2023 Corsair gets a new 13.2-inch infotainment screen, two new interior themes, and the turbocharged Ford 2.0L I-4 EcoBoost engine as standard equipment, while the 2.5L plug-in hybrid setup is present in the Corsair Grand Touring. Deliveries of the refreshed Corsair are expected to begin in early 2023.
The all-new, S650 Ford Mustang is set to debut in 2023 for the 2024 model year after its unveiling this past September. The redesigned pony car features all new styling inside and out, new option packages, and revised versions of the the Ford 2.3L I-4 EcoBoost and Ford 5.0L V8 Coyote powerplants. Inside the cabin, the new Mustang has been completely overhauled and treated to a fighter jet-inspired cockpit with a flat-bottom steering wheel, a 12.4-inch digital instrument cluster, and a new Sync 4 powered 13.2-inch infotainment screen. The all-new 2024 Ford Mustang is scheduled to launch in the summer of 2023.
Ford Super Duty
The Ford Super Duty also gets a total redesign for the 2023 model year, ushering in a host of changes including updated exterior and interior styling, 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, integrated steps in the bed and rear bumper, and a totally revamped engine lineup that gives it class-leading towing and payload capacity. The new Super Duty is expected to launch in early 2023, with some trims and features available starting next spring.
The all-new, next-generation Ford Ranger has already launched in a number of global markets, but won’t arrive in the U.S. until 2023 for the 2024 model year. Regardless, the new mid-size pickup gets new exterior styling that better aligns it with the rest of the Blue Oval truck lineup, a brand new interior, and various other changes that could vary from the international market version. Perhaps more notably, the Ranger Raptor will also make its debut in the U.S. next year, giving that country another high-performance off-road vehicle to choose from.
The current-gen Ford F-150 debuted for the 2021 model year, though the 2024 model year will see the popular pickup receive a mid-cycle refresh. Not much is known about the 2024 F-150 at this time, though Ford Authority did spot a prototype out testing for the first time in early December. The refreshed pickup is expected to get revised styling at the front and rear (at a minimum), along with a revised interior, and perhaps a multi-function tailgate option, too.
The Lincoln Aviator is also set to receive a refresh for the 2024 model year, one that will entail exterior styling revisions, as well as some potential interior updates and new wheel designs. Looking further down the road, an all-electric version of the luxurious crossover is expected to debut in 2025.
Like its platform mate – the Aviator – the Ford Explorer is also getting a refresh for the 2024 model year, one that will bring about freshened exterior styling, as well as some interior updates. The rugged, off-road focused Timberline will live on with this refresh as well, while an all-electric variant is also set to debut in 2025.
