The upcoming 2022 Ford F-350 will be the next-gen model. The Blue Oval prepares a lot of upgrades for its Super Duty lineup and some of them will be significant. The F-350 truck will look better than before and its cabin will introduce more high-tech features. The styling will be refreshed, along with the cabin design. While nothing is official yet, reliable reports are strongly suggesting drastic upgrades.
We don’t know what will happen with the engine options, but things will probably remain intact. As before, the F-350 model will rival Ram 3500 and Chevy Silverado 3500 models. Super Duty is one year away and here’s everything you need to know.
Ford F-350 Redesign
The all-new 2022 Ford F-350 will reportedly arrive with brand-new looks. The redesign is about to happen and the new model will look very upright. The platform won’t change, so the vehicle’s dimensions are intact. Even the shape is the same. However, the front fascia will host a new grille that looks more modern and sharper. The same grille will wear more chrome materials so everything will look very stylish. That includes slimmer headlamps and a more aggressive bumper.
Ford will offer new exterior paints and the next-gen F-350 will also host a new tailgate step. The remote-operated power-locking tailgate is available as well. Blue Oval will continue to offer a relatively new Tremor off-road package. It is an affordable model that offers some interesting features and it improves the truck’s off-road capability.
New Infotainment System
The biggest change on the inside will be the all-new SYNC4 infotainment system. Ram plans to offer the next-gen Uconnect5 system so it is the right time for Ford to make a statement in this category. New infotainment offers Wi-Fi that can receive ten devices. Moreover, new C-ports are available too. We think the touchscreen options won’t change but Blue Oval could surprise us, who knows.
New interior color schemes and new floor mats will be optional. The next-gen model will also provide a longer list of standard features. This is not everything, because the Super Duty lineup will obtain the latest driver-assistance aids. The cabin design won’t be changed and that includes the interior layout and passenger room.
F-350 Diesel and Gasoline Engine Specs
As we said, things under the hood will most likely remain intact. This means the new 2022 Ford F-350 will continue to offer the same 7.3-liter V8 engine. It is a relatively new powertrain option and this gasoline unit can produce up to 430 horsepower. Moreover, it is the most powerful gasoline engine in the segment and it generates 475 lb-ft of torque.
A 10-speed automatic transmission is in the offer, which is great. Optionally, you can get a familiar 6.7-liter PowerStroke engine. This turbodiesel engine delivers 450 horsepower and up to 1050 lb-ft of torque. Thanks to that, the next-gen F-350 will tow over 32,000 pounds.
2022 Ford F-350 Release Date, Price
The price of the all-new 2022 Ford F-350 will start at $36,000. If you want real luxury, the range-topping trim levels are available for $75,000 and even above that. The Blue Oval manufacturer will launch its complete Super Duty lineup in the second half of 2021.
