It’s been eight years since Ford Super Duty released its new generation. The latest one is the fourth-gen that was released in 2017. Many people have waited for the new gen to come, and those years of waiting have finally been paid. It is almost decided that the company will release a new 2022 Ford F350 Super Duty in a year.
To be true, this news isn’t that surprising at all. Since the company released the latest version, which is right a year ago, Ford’s competitors have already improved their cars. So, to keep up with them, it’s inevitable to release a new F-generation.
Though the company has told about releasing a new-gen, there is no official information about the car’s change or upgrade. However, we can still predict what the company does to upgrade this new series.

2022 Ford F350 Changes – What’s New?
When talking about the change in the newest Super Duty, the first thing that comes to mind is its exterior. There is a high possibility that the upcoming car will get a redesign, though it may not be drastic. After all, this car’s architecture is still the same, so there will be no change in its dimension. With this car getting a redesign, it will look more stylish but still aggressive.
As for the front part, we can expect some change in the front fascia that will be sharper thanks to the additional chrome accents. The headlights of this car will also undergo some change. It will be slimmer than before. Also, the bumper may look more robust and remarkable.
For the rear part, there will be a change in the tailgate. The upcoming Ford Super Duty will offer the remote-operated-power-locking tailgate. Additionally, there will also be a new-tailgate step. Although there are changes here and there, this new car still provides a tremor package.
The newest Ford Super Duty’s change is not just about the exterior alone. The safety system also changes and improves a lot. There is also new technology that’s included in this car.
Interior & Features
The 2022 Ford F350 Super Duty will have no significant change in the interior. That means the cabin of this car remains the same. It’s still spacious and comfortable. The seating setup and the buttons’ arrangement also don’t change to be confusing for you. Though the interior is practically the same, it does not mean there will be no change. After all, this car will introduce more color schemes.
The approaching Super Duty also offers features that are not less interesting than its interior. First, this car will have WiFi to put up to ten devices that offer type port C. There are also driver-assistance aids that will help to operate this car. The massaging seat with a 10-way power adjustment will also be one of this car’s redeeming features. Furthermore, the seat’s materials will be better than the previous version, so it will make you more comfortable.
With this kind of seat, you won’t get tired quickly when driving this car. Moreover, Android Auto, Apple CarPlay, Bluetooth, and navigation will be included in the base trim level. This way, you will not have to buy a higher level to get all of this luxury. Also, don’t forget about the new floor mats that will make this car more refreshing.
Unlike the exterior and interior, the engine of the 2022 F350 Super Duty won’t change. It means that this car will offer two kinds of engines, gasoline, and diesel.
The base engine is a 6.2L V8 Gasoline with 385 horsepower and 430 lb-ft of torque: a 7.3L V8 430 horsepower and 475 lb-ft of torque are also available for a more powerful option.
With this engine, the truck can produce 430 horsepower and 475 lb-ft of torque. Besides, this car also comes with 10-speed automatic transmission to support the engine.
Other than the gasoline engine, there is also the optional engine, a 6,7-liter PowerStroke turbo diesel. It is no different from the last-gen of this car. However, although it’s just an optional engine, surprisingly, it’s popular among the customers.
The reason for the popularity lies in the power of this engine. With the 6,7 PowerStroke turbo diesel, this car can produce 450 horsepower and 1050 lb-ft of torque, which makes it impressive.
2022 Ford F350 Performance & Fuel Economy
We already know that the upcoming Super Duty will not change its engine, so this car’s performance will be relatively unchanging. With an engine that can produce up to 430 horsepower and 475 lb-ft of torque for gasoline and 450 horsepower and 1050 lb-ft of torque for a turbo diesel, this car can tow up to 32.000 pounds.
However, for the newest F350, the company promises to make the car better, so the towing capacity will be higher than the current series. Besides the towing capacity, the engine makes the car quite fast though it’s not that remarkable. In other words, this car’s velocity is above average but not outstanding.
As for the fuel economy, since there is no change in the engine, there is no difference between the current generation and the approaching generation. It means that, as in the previous version, the 2022 Ford F350 fuel efficiency is about 14,6 mpg. On the highway, the fuel consumption can be up to 15 miles per gallon.
2022 Ford F350 Release Date & Price
Though there is no exact date, the newest Ford Super Duty will be released in the second half of 2021. As for the price, this car’s price will start from $35,000 for the standard trims level.
For the higher trims level, the cost can be over $50,000 or even $85,000. There is also a Tremor package for F350 and F250 series with better performance in off-road capabilities.
The upcoming Ford F350 Super Duty may be one of the most anticipated cars in 2021. After eight years of waiting, finally, this car will launch the new generation. We hope that the upcoming Super Duty will bring a new wind that satisfies those years of waiting with changes in various parts. So, let’s wait a little bit to know more about this car.
