The all-new 2023 Ford Super Duty was revealed last September, ushering in a new era for the ultra-popular model with fresh styling inside and out, new tech features, a brand new engine among a revised powerplant lineup, a new cab, and many other updates designed to keep the pickup fresh amid heavy competition. Of the many new features and options available in conjunction with the 2023 Ford Super Duty, one of the more intriguing is the XL Off-Road Package, which adds a bevy of equipment to the entry-level trim. Recently, Ford Authority was able to check out a 2023 Ford Super Duty equipped with this package up close.
The 2023 Ford Super Duty XL Off-Road Package is available on F-250 or F-350 models (though not in conjunction with the STX Appearance Package) equipped with four-wheel drive and single rear wheels, though in this particular case, we’re looking at an F-350 SuperCab. The package includes a set of 33-inch LT285/70R17 Goodyear Wrangler all-terrain tires, which are wrapped around 17-inch Argent-painted steel wheels.
Those bits are jointed by a unique front air dam that improves the truck’s approach angle for improved off-road performance. Also helping out in that department are a set of water fording vent tubes in the transfer case and axle, a rear electronic locking differential, and skid plates to protect both the transfer case and fuel tank.
This particular F-350 is also equipped with the optional Chrome Appearance Package, which adds chrome front and rear bumpers, fog lights, and chrome hub covers and center ornaments for the front and rear wheels. The XL Off-Road Package gives the entry-level 2023 Super Duty some extra off-road capability at an affordable price point, with a price tag of $995, while the Chrome Appearance Package adds another $225 to the tally.
After The Blue Oval racked up over 200,000 orders for the 2023 Ford Super Duty as of this past January, the new model remains as popular as ever, recently ranking as one of the most considered new vehicles among shoppers in Q1 2023 in Kelly Blue Book’s Brand Watch Report. All trims and configurations of the new Super Duty began shipping out to customers in late May, meaning that we’re already starting to see them populate our roads, though that will only become more common in the coming months and years.
