The current generation of Ford’s Super Duty series came about two years ago. Still, it looks like we are about to see bigger changes already for the 2022 Ford F-250 Diesel Super Duty. No, it won’t be a mid-cycle refresh. We won’t see visual upgrades either. This time, it is all about mechanics. The new version of the truck is about to get a new gasoline engine, as well as a new transmission. Other than that, we probably won’t see more important changes. The styling will definitely remain the same, while new features on the inside are quite possible.

Pros

  • Superior capabilities
  • Comfortable cabin
  • Lots of options

Cons

  • Price raises pretty fast

Exterior

Unlike most updates, this one probably won’t bring anything new in terms of aesthetics. The 2022 Ford F-250 Diesel Super Duty is about to continue in a familiar manner. It should keep the same styling and overall shape. It will continue in three familiar layout when it comes to cab design. This means following models – Regular Cab, Extended Cab and Crew Cab. Base mechanical characteristics will also remain the same. The 2022 Ford F-250 Diesel Super Duty will continue to ride on the same platform, utilizing lots of lightweight materials but keeps high rigidity and overall strength. The biggest novelties for the next year will be new color options and similar things.

Interior

The current model already offers plenty of comforts and it seems like there isn’t too much space for bigger improvements at the moment. The cabin of this truck is pretty much the same as in light-duty models, which practically means almost on par with SUVs, crossovers and other modern vehicles. In higher trims, you can even count on latest tech features, including 8-inch touchscreen, Bluetooth and other connectivities, premium sound system and much more.

Engine

The most important novelty of this update will be under the hood. It looks like the new 7.0-liter V8 engine is ready for serial production. This huge unit is about to come as a replacement for the current 6.2-liter engine. We expect to see lots of power, as well as improved efficiency. The exact numbers, though, are still unknown. We can’t say for sure how powerful the new engine will be. In any case, expect much more power compared to current 385 hp and 430 lb-ft of torque, which is amount that characterizes 6.2-liter unit. Also, we should see a new 10-speed automatic transmission in the offer. Other than that, the 2022 Ford F-250 Diesel Super Duty will continue with a familiar 6.7-liter diesel engine, which is good for about 450 horsepower and 935 pound-feet of torque and provides spectacular performances.

2020 Ford F-250 Diesel Super Duty Release Date and Price

The exact launch date is yet to be announced, but we are pretty sure that the 2022 Ford F-250 Diesel Super Duty will hit the market sometime in the second half of next year. Don’t expect bigger changes in price compared to current model, which starts around $ 32,000 and goes all away up to $80,000.
