TThe 2023 Ford Super Duty was officially revealed back in September, and in the months that have passed since that debut, Ford Authority has spotted the new pickup out driving around sporting all sorts of colors, configurations, and trim levels, including an F-450 Limited finished in the darker Rapid Red hue. Now, Ford Authority has come across yet another version of the new pickup, this time a 2023 Ford F-250 Super Duty XLT SuperCab finished in the brighter color dubbed Race Red.
On the outside, this redesigned 2023 Ford F-250 Super Duty features a revised front end with a new grille and headlights, a brand new cab, and the new Integrated Side Bed Steps and Integrated Rear Bumper Step, both of which are designed to make reaching cargo in the bed or gaining access to it, in general, a bit easier. This XLT-trimmed pickup also features chrome bumpers and fixed side steps to make ingress and egress a less taxing task. Inside the cabin, the 2023 Super Duty is available with a new head-up display, and features an interior design that’s been completely overhauled for the new model year.
In addition to fresh styling inside and out, as well as the presence of new tech features, the 2023 Ford Super Duty also gets a revised powertrain lineup with a new gas 6.8L V8 that replaces the outgoing 6.2L V8 as the entry level offering. More power across the board, along with a strengthened frame – give the new Super Duty the most towing, payload, torque, and horsepower of any heavy-duty full-size truck.
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 and 245,000 at the conclusion of December. 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.
