If you are looking for the working truck – the search is over. The 2023 Ford Super Duty will meet all your demands and finish every job. Although it is a priority, the F-250 and F-350 can also deliver a high dose of comfort and luxury, reaching premium levels of equipment, like some smaller vehicles. Limited packages are coming with the best features the US truckmaker can offer. Still, the prices of those models are just under $100k. Still, there are plenty of other build options.
For several years, fans are asking about the Raptor package for the HD segment. Well, that is not going to happen on the 2023 Ford Super Duty, since the company is currently focused on the Raptor R for F-150 to become competitive with Ram Rebel TRX Hellcat and its 702 horsepower. Meanwhile, F-250 is there with the Tremor bundle. This is a rival to Ram Power Wagon, another off-road specialist in the Series 2 heavy-duty truck segment. Finally, the top of the range version is the F-350 Dually, with the capability to tow more than 35k pounds.
2023 Ford Super Duty Specs
There are a few things in common for all 2023 Ford Super Duty trucks. That is a lineup of engines supplying the system with power. The entry-level drivetrain is a 6.2-liter petrol unit with 385 horsepower and 430 lb-ft of torque. The company will probably discontinue the powerplant after a successful run. The reason is a new engine – a 7.3-liter Godzilla V8 petrol mill. It improves outputs to 430 hp and 475 lb-ft of torque, as well as the towing capacity.
Still, if you need a truck for towing, the 2023 Ford Super Duty Diesel is the best option. The Powerstroke unit is available all across the lineup (F-250, F-350, F-450). It is a 6.7-liter V8 displacement with incredible level of torque. When you convert 1,000 lb-ft of twisting power to the towing capacity, you will get 21,000 pounds. But, it is without further upgrades. The fifth-gear/gooseneck and dual rear wheel setup increase the hauling capability to 35,000 lbs. Chevy Silverado is a leader in this segment with 36,000 lbs.
Let’s go through the trim levels and see highlights of each version. The base model comes with the XL badge, carrying standard SYNC features and a single USB port. This is the version built for work, and nothing more. The new generation of the SYNC system will be out soon, so expect updates in this segment. The XLT adds a blind-spot monitor and automatic high-beam, improving the safety. Lariat will already deliver some of the premium options, such as leather-trimmed interior, SYNC4 package, or 8-inch screen.
Lariat is also the mid-range offer, since the 2023 Ford Super Duty King Ranch requires a serious investment. You need to add at least $15k for trailer camera, heated and ventilated seats, two-tone paint, and the special upholstery material. Platinum comes with adaptive cruise control, as the most important difference. Plus, there are quad-beam lights, and power running boards. The 2023 Super Duty Limited will prepare something special, like always. After all the updates, the price is probably hitting $90k on the F-350 and $95k on the F-450.
