We've seen spy photos of next-generation Ford Super Duty prototypes for nearly a year, but the wait is nearly over. Save the date for September 27, because that's when all the tarps and camo wrap will peel away from Ford's lineup of beefy trucks.
The news was revealed by Ford on social media. Specifcally, the official account for Ford Trucks shared a short video offering glimpses of the headlights, grille, and tire. With the video is a simple message: The all-new Super Duty truck is coming on September 27.
As of now, we're aren't sure if this will be a 2023 or a 2024 model. We are sure that it will borrow heavily from the F-150 for its updated look, and numerous trim levels will be available. We've already seen XL spy shots as well as XLT, King Ranch, and Platinum test vehicles. The latest teaser clearly shows a face that closely resembles the F-150, though the headlights are a bit more square. Spy shots have revealed a variety of lighting arrangements, trim, and grille designs that will denote lower-cost trucks from range-topping versions, some of which already get very close to $100,000 before adding options.

The exterior makeover will come with a digital upgrade inside. Sources tell us a large center screen up to 12 inches in size should grace the central dash, and a digital instrument cluster will face the driver. Analog gauges could remain available on lower trim levels, but regardless of the spec, there should be plenty of tactile buttons and knobs for controlling basic functions. In this instance, a digital makeover doesn't mean a minimalist layout.
We expect gasoline and diesel engine options to largely carry over from the current generation, which launched for the 2017 model year. A recent report claims a new 6.8-liter V8 engine could enter the lineup, possibly replacing the 6.2-liter engine. This is supported by a possible leak from the former Canadian Auto Workers Union president, who mentioned a 6.8-liter engine for Ford trucks and the new Mustangat an event in 2020.
Our questions should be answered soon, as September 27 is just around the corner. We will have all the latest information on the new Ford Super Duty as soon as it's available.
