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.
