Ford is trying to stay ahead of the pack with their freshly-redesigned 2023 Ford F-250. This is a big-size truck that has some fierce competition. But it has already been selling like crazy for several past years. We are bound for some refreshments and improvements as every couple of years Ford blesses us with their latest designs.
Their newest creation must check all the boxes to win the crown of the best heavy-duty truck. So it needs to haul a lot of cargo, be able to tow excess amounts, and also be stylish. If someone could do it, it is Big Blue Oval. They have repeatedly made trucks that seem to win the hearts of pickup enthusiasts.
Not everything is still clear about the extent of the changes that are coming to the new 2023 Ford F-250. But we are hoping for an improved interior, updated technology and perhaps some gadgets that don’t usually come free. On the outside, Ford knows what it is doing. Keep the style contemporary and make it look like it is angry. According to the FordAuthority, we can expect a full redesign of the F-250 and F-350 models.
Read along to find out more detail about the upcoming refreshment.
As soon as we step into the cabin of the new 2023 Ford F-250 we can see what makes this pickup so special. Right off the bat, you can see that the seats are more sports-like. They resemble those of racing cars or rally speeders. This is not a bad thing, imagine you are off-roading or you might sit for a prolonged time in your truck. This adds to much-needed comfort and will make the bumpiest of rides seem like a breeze.
Along with new cushioning and design, we should be getting a larger palette of colors to choose from. Contrast stitching is a must in a truck of this age. It simply adds some style and dazzle, which we don’t mind, even though most people look at trucks as not more than working horses. The instrument panel is a bit outdated if you ask us. So we are hoping for a brand new one when the 2023 Ford F-250 hits the road. Maybe putting some chrome or wooden accents along the panel would do wonders.
Safety Features and Infotainment System
Luxury is also something greatly appreciated in a pickup. As we all know they are not just for work anymore. Some style is needed regardless. The steering wheel will probably have a lot of buttons so you can keep your eyes on the road while changing certain settings. Speaking of safety, Ford is sure to install its driver aid software into the new F-250. This artificial intelligence software is proven to help out drivers on the road and pull them out of dangerous situations.
A panoramic roof would be a nice addition but it is not something you can’t live without. Dashboard hopefully is all digital, Ford has done that on several other models with success. The cabin will surely be able to seat five people without too much trouble, after all this is a huge truck. The cabin should show just how big it is. The infotainment system is a central touchscreen unit, still no reports on the size but we hope for at least 10 inches. You will be able to control everything from that unit and also enjoy some entertainment.
On the outside, the new 2023 Ford F-250 doesn’t look anything less than spectacular. The big truck shows off its menacing and aggressive look. The redesign did wonders for its style. Although the changes weren’t drastic, designers were able to do a lot by changing just a tad bit. They haven’t forgotten all about the blocky look.
They did give the truck some curves, just to make it contemporary and modern. But this also gives it better aerodynamics and ergonomics. This helps a lot with fuel economy, makes the truck drive better, and gives it more stability on and off the road. The ride height was increased, it was already tall, to begin with. Wheels are humongous, and it is not only because of beefy tires.
The alloys are huge as well and they are lightweight aluminum. This shaves off much-needed weight and improves the power-to-weight ratio. The back row of wheels is doubled which means you can put some extra cargo on the back and the truck won’t sink. The cargo bed is extra long which comes in handy more than you know. On the front, we have a huge grille also made from aluminum. The headlights are the latest LED technology and they are C-shaped. Of course, we still have huge side mirrors to see if your cargo is still there.

First up is the 7.3 liter V8 that runs on gasoline. It produces 430 horsepower and 475 pound-feet of torque.
There is a 6.7-liter diesel that gives 475 horsepower and 1050 pound-feet of torque.
We get a 10-speed automatic transmission and all-wheel drive which will come in handy with a lot of cargo.
It can tow up to 37.000 pounds which is a whole lot.
