The all-new 2022 Ford F-450 is another brand’s truck that will arrive with major upgrades. Newest reports are suggesting the next-gen Super Duty lineup. F-450 is a classic work truck that still has to offer something besides its capabilities. Of course, we are talking about the modern exterior design and surprisingly nice interior.
The performances are great and Ford’s Super Duty lineup of trucks is very reliable. The customers can choose between gasoline and diesel engines. However, we don’t expect to see improvements in terms of performance. The sales will begin in the last quarter of 2021 and we also expect a slightly higher price than before.
Ford F-450 Redesign
The forthcoming 2022 Ford F-450 will continue to offer a simple exterior design. And while this truck looks rugged and modern, some changes are about to happen. Every established manufacturer nowadays delivers nice-looking heavy-duty models. You just can’t afford to offer regular design like before. In today’s world, every model has to wear a modern design with something recognizable and unique. Because of that, Ford is improving its lineup with the latest cosmetic upgrades. The next-gen F-450 truck will now look even more aggressive.
The front fascia will gain the most significant changes. New grille is in the works, along with the slimmer headlights and additional chrome accents. The goal is to deliver the F-150-like appearance and Ford is doing that perfectly. The platform will remain but we expect for some changes to happen in the rear section as well. New exterior colors are also a possibility.
The cabin of the 2022 Ford F-450 will also introduce some interesting updates. For a start, this truck will arrive with more standard features. Furthermore, the next-gen F-450 will gain new interior color schemes and some changes on the dashboard. New and larger touchscreen will be optional and even new upholstery is reportedly in the works.
Of course, a new infotainment system will be on the offer. The Wi-Fi will be able to receive more devices and C-ports are also available. The idea is to deliver a more modern interior so all trim levels will gain more luxury.
Power, Towing Capacity
Nothing will change under the hood, so the new 2022 Ford F-450 will arrive with the same powertrain options. The first one is an impressive 7.3-liter V8 engine. This unit comes with a 10-speed automatic transmission and it can produce 430 horsepower. On top of that, the V8 gasoline generates 475 lb-ft of torque. A 6.7-liter V8 turbodiesel is an optional engine once again.
Diesel is known for its impressive torque and Ford will reportedly offer around 1050 lb-ft of torque. We don’t know if Blue Oval plans to improve some other aspects but the F-450 truck will be able to tow 37,000 pounds with all features loaded.
2022 Ford F-450 Release Date, Price
The new-gen 2022 Ford F-450 will now cost more than the outgoing model. Thanks to that, the new model will start at around $51,000. The range-topping trim level will cost $90,000. The sales will begin in the last quarter of 2021 and we are waiting for Ford to reveal more details in the coming months.
