The forthcoming 2022 Ford F-250 has been spied testing two days ago wearing heavy camouflage. At first glance, the next-gen pickup truck will definitely bring some upgrades over the current one. Generally, this model will keep the same shape and dimension, but it will receive some small exterior modifications. Overall, the design is visually better, and we can expect some updates inside, too.
However, as before, Ford F-250 will keep the same potent engines. That means it will deploy three engine variants. The range of engines starts with a 6.2-liter gasoline V8, and it ends with the most potent 6.7-liter turbocharged diesel V8 that delivers 450 horsepower and amazing torquing of 1,050 lb-ft of torque.
2022 Ford F-250 Exterior
The prototype of the upcoming 2022 Ford F-250 has been just caught testing on the road. From what can we see, the next-gen truck will receive more updates and changes than the previous one. First of all, the design is robust and stylish. However, consider that the caught model is heavily camouflaged, it’s hard to guess what is going on under the skin. Moreover, we heard that the famous Blue Oval would deliver various visual updates, and it will continue to ride on the same platform as before.
The stronger construction of the F-250 will, for sure, introduce some design changes. As we can see, the grille looks sharper, and more chrome accents are present around it. On top of that, headlights will receive some small modifications, and they look slimmer than before. Tremor package is available as well, and it will bring tons of visual and mechanical upgrades, including four-wheel-drive, the Crew Cab cabin, and the 6.75-footbed.
Ford F-250 Might Borrow Infotainment System From F-150 Pickup Truck
The upcoming 2022 Ford F-250 is a heavy-duty truck that will not differ inside from some of the nowadays SUVs. Basically, this truck provides a roomy interior with a high level of comfort. However, this time cabin revamp will not happen, and Blue Oval will only deliver more high-tech features.
From what we heard, Ford F-250 will borrow many cues from the smaller version F-150. As you probably know, Ford F-150 is one of the completed pickup trucks in the segment. Generally, this is a really great idea to make Ford F-250 more competitive. So, expect great comfort inside and features that will be standard like 10-way power adjustment seats, Apple CarPlay, Android Auto, Wi-Fi with a maximum of ten devices, Type-C ports, and much more. We also heard that F-250 might receive the same infotainment system of an 8-inch touch screen as the F-150.
2022 Ford F250 Powertrain Options
After the popular F-150, the new Ford F250 will also be a carryover model. This model offers three drivetrain options. The first engine is a 6.2-liter gasoline V8 that makes 385 horsepower and 430 lb-ft of torque. This engine comes with a 6-speed automatic transmission, and it uses Rear-wheel drive (RWD) as standard.
The next one is stronger 7.3-liter V8 gasoline, delivering an output of 430 hp and 475 lb-ft of torque. Unlike the first engine, this one uses a more economic 10-speed automatic transmission. Lastly, the most potent offer is a 6.7-liter Power Stroke turbodiesel V8 that produces 450 horsepower and an unbelievable 1,050 lb-ft of torque. This model also uses a 10-speed automatic transmission with the option to choose 4-wheel drive (4WD) optionally.
Release Date and Cost
The redesigned version of the potent 2022 F-250 is spied testing recently, and we must say, it looks more robust than before. Blue Oval revealed that the next generation would arrive next year as 2022YM.
The forthcoming model will cost slightly more than the predecessor because of many improvements over it. Manufacturer’s Suggested Retail Price of the newest XL trim regular cab will be less than $35,000. In the same price range are models like Chevy Silverado 2500 HD, GMC Sierra 2500HD, and the Ram 2500 HD.
