If you need to tow heavy loads, then few options can compare to the F-250 Super Duty. If you don’t need to tow heavy loads but still want an F-250 – then you like being excessive.
But who am I to talk? I want it too.
For 2022 the F-250 is mostly the same; however, there are a few much-needed changes especially on the inside – let’s have a look.
2022 Ford F-250 Exterior and Engine Options
Not much has changed on the outside – the only differences are some package options and new colors. So, no worries here – no one can tell you have the old truck.
The same is true under the hood where the well known three engines are still available to choose from.
At base, we have the 6.2-liter gasoline V8 with 385hp and 430 lb-ft of torque. This engine is paired with a six-speed transmission.
The more expensive options include the 7.3-liter gas V8 producing 430hp and 475lb-ft of torque and the monstrous 6.7-liter turbo diesel Powerstroke which pumps out an earth-moving 475hp and 1050 lb-ft of torque.
Both engines are paired to the heavy-duty 10-speed automatic transmission.
No hybrid versions appear to be making their way into the lineup soon.
F-250 Towing and Payload
Towing and payload also remain unchanged. The strongest super duty can tow 24.200 pounds with a normal trailer hitch and 37000 pounds with a gooseneck hitch. Rated payload comes in at 7850-pounds.
2022 Ford F0250 Interior
On the inside is where Ford’s engineers have spent most of their time fixing their previous mistakes.
They seem to have listened to customer complaints about the poor interior fit and finish by redesigning the center stack, dashboard and adding an updated 12-inch display.
Don’t get too excited though – the 12-inch display is only available on the higher specced options. The base model gets a 4.2-inch screen while the mid-level XLT has an 8-inch.
Both 4.2 and 8-inch screens use Ford’s old Sync 3 whereas the 12-inch uses the newly introduced Sync 4.
The Sync 4 system will offer WIFI capability, wireless updates, Apple car play, and Android auto. The vehicle’s manual along with the ability to stream how-to videos can also be accessed through the truck’s display.
Other luxuries include dual-zone climate control, wireless charging, and ventilated and heated seats – it’s crazy how luxurious these trucks are getting.
Of course, trailer backup is still available; however, Ford has not introduced the 4WD auto mode to the F-250.
On the center stack, you will also find 110V AC and 12V outlets.
As you can probably tell, updates for the 2022 Ford F-250 have been limited. Although, Ford has focused on the areas that needed changing; so, no complaints here.
As excessive as it may be, I do love the F-250. The ample amounts of space mean it can be accessorized to your specific needs – you can even turn its bed to a small camper trailer.
If you are already an owner of the 2021 F-250 there is no point in upgrading – but if you are in the market for a towing monster look no further!
Oh, and save up some cash for the 6.7 diesel – that’s the one you want in the 2022 Ford F-250.
