New 2022 Ford F-350 is getting a lot of interesting updates. For a start, this heavy-duty truck will introduce a new and larger touchscreen option. Unfortunately, Ford Super Duty won’t feature such radical changes as the light-duty F-150 pickup.
Still, the F-350 model will obtain new exterior colors and optional appearance packages. Besides that, both exterior and interior will gain mid-cycle refreshments. Nothing will change under the hood, so the performances will remain the same. Complete Super Duty lineup of trucks will hit the markets this summer, although this is still not official.
Ford F-350 Gets Minor Facelift and New Appearance Packages
The upcoming 2022 Ford F-350 comes with another mid-cycle facelift. Visually, we don’t expect significant upgrades, but some novelties are about to happen. First of all, the front fascia comes with a slightly modified grille and headlights. Ford will introduce new Atlas Blue exterior color, which is great. On top of that, the Blue Oval manufacturer will add new appearance packages. From now on, you can get the Lariat Sport appearance package.
This package offers the same bumpers, grilles, mirrors, and some other exterior features like the Lariat trim level. Black running boards are on offer and the F-350 truck will sport additional chrome accents. The Black Appearance package is now available on lower-grade trim levels, such as XLT. Previously, this package was available on the Lariat trim level and higher. If you choose the Black Appearance package, you will get blacked-out exterior features, black 20-inch wheels, and body-colored features.
Interior Gets Larger 12-Inch Touchscreen
On the inside, the 2022 Ford F-350 will introduce one major update. It is a new 12-inch infotainment touchscreen. However, this unit is available in the Lariat trim level and trims above that. Ford will also introduce a new Baja interior color scheme, again, in the Lariat variant. The range-topping Limited variant gets Light Slate and Navy Pier interior colors, which is a great addition.
Ford said the all-new display will work with the SYNC4 infotainment system. This new system comes with wireless Apple CarPlay and Android Auto. As for the entry-level models, Blue Oval offers the same 8-inch display. Lastly, Super Duty trucks are about to introduce additional safety aids.
Astonishing Towing Capacity
As we said, nothing will change in terms of performance. Thanks to that, the 2022 Ford F-350 will once again offer a standard 6.2-liter V8 engine. This gasoline unit delivers 385 hp and 430 lb-ft of torque. The first optional choice is a larger 7.3-liter V8 engine. It is another gasoline variant with 430 hp, and it is the most potent gasoline engine in the heavy-duty segment.
Finally, there is a 6.7-liter turbodiesel engine. It is a familiar Power Stroke output that produces 475 horsepower and up to 1050 lb-ft of twists. The F-350 truck offers a standard rear-wheel-drive setup, while the four-wheel-drive system will be optional again. All Super Duty trucks are available with a 6-speed and 10-speed automatic transmission. If you opt for a diesel engine, fifth-wheel, and gooseneck hitch, your F-350 truck will offer 37,000 pounds of towing capacity.
2022 Ford F-350 Price, Release Date
The price of the 2022 Ford F-350 model starts at about $34,500. Ford is yet to reveal more details, but the latest updates will surely increase the starting price. Reportedly, Super Duty trucks will hit the markets this summer.
