Ford is rolling out new upgrades for the 2022 F-Series Super Duty, the automaker announced.
“Super Duty customers aren’t just working harder these days; they are also working smarter,” said Todd Eckert, Ford Truck Group marketing manager. “We’re further helping our customers raise their games and get the job done with purposeful technology through the introduction of SYNC 4 with a larger 12-inch screen and 24/7 cloud connectivity for both their truck and mobile devices.”
The all-new, landscape-oriented 12-inch center touchscreen with SYNC 4 is standard on Lariat and above models, with physical controls below for quick access to commonly used functions. Occupants can multitask functions by splitting the screen to see navigation, music, truck features and the new digital owner’s manual.
With twice the computing power of the previous-generation system, all-new SYNC 4 can wirelessly connect smartphones without the USB cord for seamless integration of Apple CarPlay or Android Auto compatibility, as well as SYNC AppLink apps. Customers can interact with the truck using more conversational natural voice control to ask for points of interest or delays along a route. SYNC voice control and a 4.2-inch center screen remain standard on the XL series trucks with SYNC 3 available while an 8-inch center touch screen and SYNC 3 are standard on XLT.
“These additions build on the major updates we made for 2020 and we keep working hard to bring the best in capability and productivity to assist our hardworking Super Duty customers everyday,” said Eckert.
For 2022, Super Duty offers a new Lariat Sport Appearance Package that includes body-color bumpers, exterior mirrors and grille, as well as a chrome exhaust tip and black platform running boards.
The Black Appearance Package is now being made available for XLT models for 2022. This includes 20-inch Ebony Black-painted wheels, body-color front and rear bumpers, grille bars and six-inch Ebony Black running boards. The front and rear Blue Ovals have also been painted black. The Black Appearance Package will be available fall 2021.
New colors available inside and out include a Baja interior for Lariat, a Navy Pier and Light Slate interior for Limited, and an Atlas Blue exterior color.
The current-generation Super Duty is powered by an available 7.3-liter V8 with 430 horsepower and 475 lb.-ft. of torque. The available third-generation 6.7-liter Power Stroke diesel V8 delivers 1,050 lb.-ft. of torque and 475 horsepower.
