Here’s a first look at the ’23 Ford Super Duty King Ranch with its front end completely exposed.
The exposed front end shows off a completely revised design which includes a new hood, fenders, grille, lower front clip and headlights that are incorporated into the grille design (which appears to share its design with the King Ranch logo). Ford also carries over the C-clamp corporate look, although this time it encompasses the LED running light design. The King Ranch and Platinum are expected to share the same front-end design, minus paint combos. Around back, the changes appear to be minimal, with the addition of revised LED tail lamps.
Inside, the Super Duty will gain a sleek new 12-in. touchscreen mounted horizontally along with all the King Ranch touches, which include leather, and then more leather.
Power is still expected to come from a 3-engine portfolio: 6.2L V8, 7.3L V8 and the 6.7L V8 Turbo Diesel. All engine options are expected to be mated to the TorqShift 10-speed automatic transmission. There should be a slight bump in power when it comes to the 6.7L Turbo Diesel.
Production of the Ford Super Duty will continue at the Kentucky Truck Plant in Louisville. Expect an official debut sometime this fall.
