The new 2023 Ford F-450 will undergo considerable updates. The new truck, according to Blue Oval, will have a more robust exterior and a long list of standard and optional options. Apart from this model, Ford also provides the F-250 and F-350 Super Duty trucks. Both models are available with a single or dually (dual rear-wheel) arrangement.
The F-450 is powered by a 6.2-liter V8 gasoline engine with plenty of power. Furthermore, two other engine options are available: a 7.3-liter V8 gasoline engine and a V8 turbodiesel with an exceptional towing capacity. Here is all we have at the moment.
Ford F-450 Specs, Transmission
The upcoming 2023 Ford F-450 will deploy a 6.2-liter V8 gasoline engine producing 385 hp and 430 lb-ft of torque. The base engine comes standard with a six-speed automatic transmission, although Ford additionally offers a ten-speed automatic transmission. As previously noted, the F-450 truck has a rear-wheel-drive system as standard, with optional four-wheel drive.
A 7.3-liter V8 gasoline engine with 430 horsepower and 475 lb-ft of torque is offered as an option. Finally, a V8 turbodiesel engine is available, producing 475 horsepower and an incredible 1050 lb-ft of torque. The F-450’s most powerful engine, according to Blue Oval, has a towing capacity of about 35,200 pounds.
The 2023 Ford-450 will once again have a contemporary interior design. Regardless, the F-450 truck comfortably outclasses the majority of its competitors in terms of comfort. This model has a simple dash design and an extremely functional seating arrangement. The interior design, on the other hand, will vary depending on the trim level. For example, the XLT trim level comes equipped with an 8-inch touchscreen, a Wi-Fi hotspot, and the latest Android Auto/Apple CarPlay phone integrations.
More premium stuff such as ambient lighting, wireless charging, and leather upholstery, are standard in the range-topping trim levels. The remaining variants include a massive 12-inch touchscreen and the Sync 4 infotainment system, which includes wireless Android Auto and Apple CarPlay functionality.
Retaining a Robust Appearance
The upcoming 2023 Ford F-450 Super Duty is a monster truck that appears to be both robust and attractive. Numerous configurations are available. The Lariat Sport Appearance package is the most popular. This is an optional kit that comprises body-color bumpers, mirrors, and grille. Moreover, this variant comes equipped with a chrome exhaust tip and black running boards.
All XLT models, including the base model, now come standard with the Black Appearance package. This kit includes 20-inch wheels, custom badging, and new running boards. Naturally, the Black Appearance package includes a variety of darker trimmings.
Release Date and Price of the 2023 Ford F-450
Recent reports indicate that the price of the 2023 Ford F-450 may increase. As a result, the new model is estimated to cost around $50,500, slightly more than the outgoing model. The most expensive model, on the other hand, is almost $90k. This model is strong and reliable, making it a good workhorse.
