Ford introduced the 2023 F-Series Super Duty lineup of pickup trucks and chassis cabs.

Every Super Duty features a Ford-designed and built 10-speed TorqShift automatic transmission, and every chassis cab model comes standard with a power take off connection to run added equipment, like boom lifts and plows. Four-wheel drive is now standard on XLT models and above. The new Ford Pro Upfit Integration System (UIS) is a game changer for customers who rely on body equipment and upfits to accomplish a job, such as utility cranes or plows.
This digital solution provides aftermarket equipment makers with improved access to Super Duty’s electrical system and signals to seamlessly integrate and operate their hardware into the truck’s digital displays. Cloud-based software connects to the UIS so equipment makers can add digital buttons that allow drivers to control their equipment from inside the truck. The system also allows for high levels of customization and safety interlocks, like preventing the transmission from shifting into drive with a raised boom lift.
Pro Power Onboard is now available for Super Duty, featuring more exportable power than any heavy-duty pickup or chassis cab. The 2.0-kilowatts of output can power a jobsite or tailgate party. Power outlets are accessible inside the truck and cargo box, or they can be mounted on chassis cabs with a special outlet installation kit. Approximately 96% of heavy-duty pickup owners use their trucks to tow, and with targeted best-in-class payload††† and towing‡ for every trailer type, Super Duty ensures customers can haul with confidence.
The 2023 Ford Super Duty is the first pickup in the United States with embedded 5G capability. AT&T’s high-performance 5G network can deliver faster navigation, mapping and music downloads with higher quality than 4G. Super Duty’s 5G modem from Qualcomm Technologies can also provide a Wi-Fi hotspot for up to 10 devices†† to help keep workers and families connected on the go, and support Ford Power-Up software updates while driving to keep making the truck better over time. ■
An upper-level trough over the Four Corners region currently will move east across the Southern Plains through this evening which will help to focus a strengthening area of low pressure north of the Red River Valley as a couple of trailing cold fronts drop southeastward across Texas.
