The 2023 Ford Super Duty launched last year as a fully redesigned model with revised styling inside and out, a revamped engine lineup, and plenty of new tech features aimed at keeping the larger F-Series pickup at the top of the sales charts. However, as is typically the case with any vehicle (or pretty much any type of consumer product out there), there are some areas for improvement, as well as the potential to make the 2023 Ford Super Duty a bit better or more useful than it already is. And that had us wondering – what would our readers like to see changed or improved?
On the outside, the 2023 Ford Super Duty takes more of an evolutionary approach than a revolutionary one, which is understandable given the truck’s enduring popularity, but it might also leave some pining for more. Customers can choose from seven front grille designs depending on trim and configuration, while FoMoCo’s signature “C-clamp” headlights align with the rest of the automaker’s truck lineup.
Inside the cabin, the 2023 Super Duty features a host of changes as well, with a single binnacle design and either 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, an available wireless charging pad, four USB ports, Max Recline Seats, and an eight-speaker B&O sound system or optional 18-speaker B&O Unleashed system.
In terms of powertrains, the big news for the 2023 Ford Super Duty is the addition of the brand new 6.8L V8 as the model’s standard powerplant – a detail that Ford Authority was the first to report. In addition to this new offering, a more powerful version of the 7.3L V8 Godzilla, the 6.7L V8 Power Stroke diesel, and a new high-output version of the Power Stroke that features a unique turbo, tune, and upgraded exhaust manifolds have joined the lineup as well. All of these engines are mated to the 10-speed automatic transmission, while four-wheel drive is standard on all XLT trimmed trucks and above. Finally, Pro Power Onboard offers up to 2.0 kW of portable power.
All of these changes have helped the 2023 Ford Super Duty remain immensely popular with truck buyers, but it stands to reason that there are some things that at least a few folks would like to change or improve.
