The next-generation Ford Super Duty pickup is just days away from its debut. However, the automaker is not done with the teaser campaign. The latest preview, a short video posted to Ford Trucks’ social media pages, doesn’t reveal much — they never do. It’s similar to the first, showing three brief glimpses of the truck interspersed with a build montage.
The video shows the wheels of the truck, the chrome door handles and the tailgate. It paints an incomplete picture of the vehicle, with the previous teaser not revealing much. However, countless spy photos have captured a pickup that clearly borrows styling details from the F-150.
The truck will be available in a variety of combinations and trims, with XL, XLT, King Ranch and Platinum models appearing during its development. Customers should expect Ford to offer multiple grille designs, wheels, and lighting options, which will help differentiate the different Super Duty trims.
Powertrain details remain a mystery, but there are some indicators that Ford is considering revamping the engine lineup. More than one report has hinted at the automaker replacing the 6.2-liter engine with a larger 6.8-liter unit. The engine could end up in the next-generation Mustang if a 2020 leak turns out to be accurate. The new engine is expected to join the 7.3-liter Godzilla engine and the 6.7-liter Power Stroke diesel. The truck’s 10-speed automatic is expected to be retained, likely receiving several upgrades.
We haven’t seen the inside of the truck, but our sources say the cabin will get a major overhaul. The next-gen Super Duty will feature a large central screen measuring up to 12 inches. Top-trim trucks will likely feature a digital dash with lower trims getting analog gauges.
We don’t know if the truck will arrive as a 2023 or 2024 model. However, the fine print in the video revealed that the “standard model” will be available in early 2023, which is ambiguous enough for us to guess. Ford will announce the next-generation Super Duty on Tuesday, September 27. If Ford plans to launch it early next year, it will be a long time before production starts.
