While the light-duty F-150 is here, completely redesigned, the Super Duty series is about to carry on in the same way. This refers to the F-350 as well, which will continue to deliver familiar design characteristics, which are mostly about hard work. This model offers class-leading numbers in terms of towing, but also offers a decent level of convenience. It is a perfect work machine, which can also be pretty luxurious if you pick higher trim levels. For the next year, we will see a couple of small but very nice novelties.
AS we’ve just mentioned, the next year’s model will come with a couple of nice novelties. We are about to see new color options in the offer, while the biggest novelty will be a new infotainment system with a much bigger screen. Other than that, we will also see new appearance packages.
2022 Ford F-350 Redesign
The current generation has been around for a while, but the Blue Oval company won’t rush with changes. Simply, the current model is still a class leader in many aspects, so we don’t see a reason why there would be any significant changes. We count on a familiar layout, with the same styling. One of the interesting novelties will be a new exterior color in the offer, called Atlas Blue.
You may also count on some interesting appearance packages in the offer. For example, there is a new Black Appearance package, which makes lower-grade models look much better. It comes with a body-color grille, bumpers, etc. On the other side, there are numerous blacked areas, such as 20-inch wheels, running boards, and front and rear Blue Oval badges.
Also, there is the Lariat Sport Appearance package, which includes goodies like body-color front and rear bumpers, exterior mirrors and grille, as well as a chrome exhaust tip and black running boards.
The inside of the 2022 Ford F-350 will include a couple of pretty nice novelties. First of all, we are about to see the new SYNC 4 infotainment system, which will include new software and wireless Android Auto and Apple CarPlay, among other goodies. Furthermore, you may count on new interior color schemes: Baja scheme for the Lariat trim, while the Navy Pier and Light Slate will be offered in the Limited trim.
Other than that, the cabin will remain pretty much the same. We are about to see a familiar cabin layout, which comes in a typical pickup truck manner, with lots of hard-touch surfaces and similar things. Still, higher-grade models can look pretty luxurious.
Although there is a possibility to see a couple of novelties, the next year won’t bring any crucial change. So, the trim level organization will remain the same. The offer will start with the XL model, which is a typical workhorse that comes with manual accessories and essentials only. The XLT adds convenience features, such as alloy wheels, chrome grille, heater mirrors etc.
The Lariat will continue to be a perfect mid-level option, with upgrades like leather upholstery, power-adjustable front seats, foglights, LED lighting and similar things. The King Ranch will once again come with several unique styling details, as well as standard features like navigation, wood accents, heated and ventilated seats etc.
Finally, there are Limited and Platinum trim levels, the most luxurious variants of this pickup. They both come with unique styling details and also gradually add more standard equipment.
2022 Ford F-350 Engines
The engine lineup will definitely remain the same. You may count on three familiar engine options in the offer. Base versions use a familiar 6.2-liter V8, which puts out around 385 horsepower and 430 pound-feet of torque. There is also a relatively new, 7.3-liter V8, nicknamed Godzilla, which puts out 430 horsepower and 475 pound-feet of torque. Both come in pair with a 10-speed automatic transmission.
Of course, you may also count on the monstrous 6.7-liter turbodiesel, which puts out around 475 horsepower and 1.075 pound-feet of torque. With this engine under the hood, you may count on class-leading towing capacity, which goes up to 37.000 pounds. This engine also comes paired with a 10-speed automatic transmission.
2022 Ford F-350 Release Date and Price
We expect that the 2022 Ford F-350 will arrive sometime in the last quarter of the year. Base models should be available already at 36.000 dollars, roughly. Of course, key competitors will be Ram 3500 and Chevy Silverado 3500.
