Ford Reveals Key Updates for 2022 Super Duty

The F-Series is America’s bestselling truck for 44 years, and Ford is aiming to extend that streak to 45 years and then some. Ford announced a host of updates for the new 2022 Super Duty, including new style options and a big addition in terms of tech.

Perhaps the biggest update coming to the 2022 Ford Super Duty is SYNC® 4 infotainment with a landscape-oriented 12-inch touch screen. Standard on the Super Duty Lariat and up, SYNC® 4 brings features like wireless Apple CarPlay® and Android Auto™ as well as cloud-based connectivity.

“Super Duty customers aren’t just working harder these days, they are also working smarter,” said Todd Eckert, Ford Truck Group Marketing manager. “We’re further helping our customers raise their game and get the job done with purposeful technology through the introduction of SYNC 4 with a larger 12-inch screen and 24×7 cloud connectivity for both their truck and mobile devices.”

The 2022 Ford Super Duty lineup also gets updates in terms of looks with a pair of new packages. The Lariat Sport Appearance Package adds body-color bumpers, grille, and mirrors for a more unique look that contrasts sharply with the chrome exhaust tip and black running boards.

Ford is also offering up its Black Appearance Package on the Super Duty XLT. This popular option swaps in 20-inch Ebony Black-painted wheels, 6-inch Ebony Black running boards, and blacked out Blue Oval badges. The XLT Black Appearance Package launches in the fall.

Also new for 2022 is a Baja interior option for the Super Duty Lariat as well as Navy Pier and Light Slate interiors for the Super Duty Limited. Joining the lineup is a new Atlas Blue exterior color that makes the 2022 Super Duty pop even more.

Add all that to incredible performance and capability, including best-in-class maximum conventional towing and maximum payload capacity, and you’ve got a winner on your hands. Check out the new and improved 2022 Ford Super Duty when it arrives at Two Rivers Ford in Mount Juliet, Tennessee.

Super Duty® Tremor Trucks Are Offering an Integrated Electric Winch

The 2020 Ford Super Duty® is available with the Tremor Off-Road Package, which enables the truck to handle off-road paths with ease. Now, 2020 Super Duty® trucks with the package also offer an available integrated electric winch for improved capability.

The Ford Performance Parts winch by Warn is a powerful feature, bringing 12,000 pounds of winching power to the table. You can select the winch for your 2020 Super Duty® Tremor whether it’s powered by a gas or diesel engine.

The winch is situated behind the truck’s bumper to allow for an ideal amount of clearance and airflow when embarking on an adventure. The winch is incredibly strong and features a synthetic cable that you can utilize to pull a rig over an obstacle on a trail or out of the mud. You can also count on it to move barriers, such as fallen trees, out of the way.

The winch comes with a wireless remote control, though you can also elect to have a wired remote control. With the Tremor Off-Road Package, the 2020 Super Duty® also has an impressive maximum payload capacity of up to 4,210 pounds.

The 2020 Ford Super Duty® is a great option for working on a job site or traversing off the beaten path. Learn more about the truck’s available features when you take a test drive at Two Rivers Ford.

New 2017 Ford Super Duty is Too Tough for Ford’s Old Testing Equipment

How tough is the new 2017 Ford Super Duty? According to Ford, so tough that it had to build a completely new dynamometer sled to simulate traveling up steep mountain grades when testing on the flat roads of the automaker’s Arizona Proving Grounds.

Normally, a dynamometer is hooked up to the back of a truck to test its capability. However, the new 2017 Ford Super Duty was so powerful that the old dyno simply didn’t challenge it, leading Ford to build a completely new one and properly test its mountain-climbing limits.

By using a brake limiter, which essentially mimics the effects of gravity while driving up an incline, the dyno is able to simulate steep grades. The old one was capable of a maximum drawbar pull of 2,000 pounds and to simulate a 7% grade; by comparison, the new one is capable of a drawbar pull of over 5,600 pounds and to simulate up to a 30% grade.

“In more than 25 years of doing this work, we used the same dyno, which did the job, but the new truck is so powerful we needed new equipment to test out its capability,” explained Jim Sumner, Ford product development engineer. “The fact that even under full load, Super Duty didn’t have any trouble at all is a testament to just how capable this new truck is.”

We look forward to challenging the 2017 Ford Super Duty with real-world tests at Two Rivers Ford!
