2023 Ford F-250 Super Duty Platinum FX4: Real World Photos

The 2023 Ford Super Duty was officially revealed back in September, and in the months since then, Ford Authority has spotted the brand new pickup out driving around in all sorts of colors, configurations, and trim levels. That list features more than one finished in the luxurious Platinum trim, including both an F-250 Tremor and an F-350 Tremor. to Now, Ford Authority has come across yet another version of the redesigned pickup in this configuration – a 2023 Ford F-250 Super Duty Platinum FX4.

The Platinum trim slots in between the King Ranch and top-tier Limited, and adds a host of features to the pickup. On the outside, those include a unique satin aluminum front grille, chrome door and tailgate handles with body color surrounds,  power deployable running boards, body-color front and rear bumpers, a chrome exhaust tip, remote tailgate release and power tailgate, a satin chrome tailgate appliqué, a tailgate step, chrome tow hooks up front, power folding mirrors, LED lighting all around, and 20-inch bright machined and matte black low-gloss painted aluminum wheels.

Inside the cabin, the Platinum Super Duty gains soft armrests and door handles, upper and lower map pockets, an upper appliqué, multi-contour eight-way adjustable leather seats with heat and ventilation, a flow-through console, an easy entry driver’s seat with memory functions, memory power-adjustable pedals, scuff plates with the Platinum logo, and a leather-wrapped power tilt and telescoping heated steering wheel.

The 2023 Ford F-250 Super Duty Platinum FX4 is a bit less hardcore than the Tremor version of the brand new pickup, but still comes equipped with a host of upgrades that make it more capable off-road. Available on all four-wheel drive Super Duty pickups, the FX4 Off-Road Package adds all-terrain tires, an electronic locking differential (single rear wheel models only), Hill Decent Control, off-road tuned shock absorbers, skid plates for the transfer case and fuel tank, and a unique “FX4 Off-Road” box decal.

Otherwise, the 2023 Super Duty represents a total redesign of the venerable pickup, complete with new exterior and interior styling, an all-new head-up display (HUD), as well as a brand new cab, bedside steps, and a tailgate step, the latter of which doesn’t impact the truck’s approach and departure angles, as Ford Authority recently reported. Additionally, the new Super Duty features a revamped engine lineup as well.

Consumers showed immediate interest in the 2023 Ford Super Duty following its debut, as The Blue Oval took a significant 50,000 orders in the first week order banks were open – a number that grew to 150,000 by the end of November. Initial Job 1 production of the brand new pickup will begin in early 2023 for XL, XLT, and Lariat trims in all cab configurations, engines, and series, from the F-250 up to the F-600. Meanwhile, Job 2 2023 Super Duty production for King Ranch, Platinum, and Limited trims will follow in the spring, though it’s worth noting that many options are listed as late availability.

    Not sold on the bedside steps. Seeing them holding water around the edges and rust developing . Rather have a running board run further down the side or a step hung off the frame . Wait a year or so till it hits the local dealerships.

      its an aluminum truck TIM. But lets be honest, the truck is dog ugly. 100 grand for unfinished black plastic, silver painted ugly grill that looks like it come off a 80’s chevy van,
      and who the hell likes the cheap black wheels. Ford re-fresh is so lame , and GM did a awesome job on there front ends this year.

      Same Complaint every time a picture surfaces. those steps compete with GM to make a working truck easier to work with, because actually lowering the body to a usable height is not seemingly an option.

    One thing Ford Authority has not said a word about, is Lariat and above trims will recieve the disgusting all-digital dash cluster from the 2021 F-150.

    I have to agree with mickey that this new model is dog ugly, and the refresh is the worst looking Ford I’ve seen in my 42 years of owning Ford trucks, I was planning on buying one but I can’t get passed the UGLYNESS. However, I disagree with mickey on the GM redo. In my opinion, the GM redo is even UGLIER than the Ford .
    Both companies need to can their designers and hire new ones that have better tastes than what they’ve got now!!

      Tom, GM has had some Ugly front ends in the past 4 – 5 years, even die hard GM guys hated it. the 2024 silverado HD looks great , The GMC HD denali looks great, it flows well , and GM finally listened. GM has cheap black plastic wheel lip moldings and stupid awkward mirrors, Ford gave up on wheel lip moldings all together, the bed steps are an eye sore on both trucks. GM has body side moldings again, Ford does not. The Fords are looking real cheap looking this year.

    The 17-22 MY Super Duty was such a beautiful truck to look at. Cannot believe how ugly they made it. The whole redo is a disgrace from making a large amount of options standard that increases the price dramatically to ugly body changes like this I’ll definitely be looking at used when the time comes. Not interested in ’23+ at all.
