The upcoming 2022 Ford F-250 is about to introduce drastic upgrades. According to the latest reports, Ford will reveal the next-gen Super Duty lineup. This is not official yet, but this rumor makes perfect sense. Blue Oval manufacturer does not have a logical order of introducing the next-gen models. For an instance, some Super Duty generations lasted for almost ten years. On the other hand, some generations were present for only three or four years.
If the F-250 model is truly the new-generation truck, then we should expect major changes. First spy photos are already available. However, the camouflaged prototype didn’t reveal so many changes. Some things are changed and those changes are visible but most of the exterior was perfectly camouflaged, including the interior. The sales will begin later in 2021 and we are waiting for a new batch of spy photos.
F-250 Spied with Redesign
The upcoming 2022 Ford F-250 will introduce numerous cosmetic upgrades. The reports predicted exterior overhaul, but the newest spy shots are now showing significant change. The spied prototype looks as robust as the current F-250 model. It seems like the platform is the same, along with the vehicle’s dimensions. The front fascia is definitely hiding something big under the camouflage. The all-new cut grille is rumored.
This grille will provide a sharper design and it will probably wear more chrome trims. The headlights are slimmer so the front section will look incredibly modern. Moreover, we can see wider flared fenders too. Ford will surely introduce new exterior paints and new wheels. The rear part will get a new tailgate step and remote-operated power-locking tailgate.
The forthcoming 2022 Ford F-250 will most likely arrive with major interior improvements. The spy shots failed to provide a closer look inside the cabin. However, various sources are convinced that the interior will suffer major changes. For a start, the cabin will remain practical and spacious. Ford won’t change its layout and the cabin arrangement.
However, Ford will try to modernize the cabin. Thanks to that, we should expect more high-tech features and additional safety aids. Visually, F-250 will probably get new interior color schemes and more chrome materials. We don’t know if the standard cloth and optional leather upholstery will remain. The seats are new and Blue Oval will deliver a new infotainment system as well.
Diesel Engine Will Be Improved
Under the hood, the next-gen 2022 Ford F-250 will probably stick to a current engine lineup. That means this truck will offer the same engines as before. However, Ford could deliver small improvements, especially for its diesel engine. But first, a 7.3-liter V8 gasoline engine with 430 hp and 475 lb-ft of torque is available. Ford says this is the most powerful gasoline powertrain in the heavy-duty segment. It comes with an almost brand-new 10-speed automatic transmission.
As for the diesel, a 6.7-liter PowerStroke is optional. It is a very popular and reliable engine that delivers up to 1050 lb-ft of torque. Ford could improve the torque figures, but this is just a rumor at the moment. As we said, the platform is unchanged so the F-250 truck remains a rear-wheel-drive pickup truck.
2022 Ford F-250 Price and Release Date
The price of the next-generation 2022 Ford F-250 will start at around $35,500. The range-topping models such as Limited or Platinum will cost over $50,000. Some speculations are writing about a hybrid variant, but this is unlikely to happen. On the other hand, the Tremor package is available once again. The Blue Oval manufacturer will release its new Super Duty lineup of trucks in the later stages of 2021.
