After the introduction of the F-150 Lightning model, Blue Oval will focus on the F-Series Super Duty lineup. The 2023 Ford Super Duty F-350 Platinum is just one of the models in the lineup. However, we are writing specifically about F-350 truck because the first spy photos are already here.
Of course, the F-250 and F-450 models will get the same refreshments. The F-350 prototype has been spotted doing some testing, mostly on-road. Interestingly, it is the prototype of the Platinum trim level. While we expect various exterior and interior changes, nothing will change under the hood.
The engine options for the future 2023 Ford Super Duty F-350 Platinum will be the same as those offered by Blue Oval now. Diesel and gasoline engines are still available for purchase in their existing versions. The base model is powered by a 7.3-liter V8 petrol engine with 430 horsepower and 475 lb-ft of torque. According to Ford, this is the most powerful gasoline engine on the market right now.
Furthermore, the maker features a turbodiesel engine for improved performance. These trucks are powered by a 6.7-liter diesel engine that produces 475 horsepower and 1050 lb-ft of torque. Furthermore, when properly equipped, Super Duty F-350 trucks can pull around 37,000 pounds. Some sources claim that the diesel engine will offer somewhat higher torque, but Ford has not confirmed this.
Ford Super Duty F-350 Platinum Spy Shots
The prototype shown here is dressed in Platinum trim level, as shown by the chrome highlights on the door mirror caps and the bottom of the window surrounds. The 2023 Ford Super Duty F-350 Platinum also wears black wheels. This leads us to the Tremor off-road package. Only this package currently offers the same wheels.
The presence of black wheels on this prototype, on the other hand, is notable. Currently, the Tremor Off-Road Package is the only option to purchase black wheels on an F-350 Platinum. Right now, the Tremor package is available on King Ranch and Platinum trim levels. XLT no longer offers this off-road kit, unfortunately. While the prototype wears heavy camouflage, we can spot nice upgrades. Generally, new F-350 model borrows a lot of things from the F-150 light-duty pickup truck.
The 2023 Ford Super Duty F-350 Platinum is more premium than the base trim level. Because of that, the level of luxury is naturally higher. The Platinum variant delivers gorgeous Dark Marsala interior color schemes. On top of that, it comes with ambient lighting, leather seats and various Smoke Metallic accents.
Furthermore, F-350 Platinum provides standard features such as forward collision warning and adaptive cruise control. The cabin will also host a 12-inch touchscreen using a new SYNC4 infotainment system. Generally, the Platinum trim level provides a true SUV-like cabin with premium comfort and lots of high-tech features.
