Model Preview

The Ford F-150 continues to lead the segment, especially after its full redesign for the 2021 model year. Coming off of a recent redesign, we expect the 2023 Ford F-150 to arrive as a carryover model.

When the fully redesigned F-150 arrived in 2021, it featured a similar design to the last-gen model with a few tweaks. As a carryover model, the 2023 F-150 will have the same design as the one that’s currently on sale. The current F-150 features squared-off front and rear ends and a boxy silhouette. The C-shaped running lights, a split grille, tiny square headlights, and a healthy amount of chrome give the current F-150 a classier look than previous generations.

Depending on trim level, the current F-150 ranges from a work truck to a luxurious vehicle. All F-150 trims feature chunky interior styling and a straightforward design that prioritizes ease of use. The center console is split into two sections with a large touchscreen sitting above physical buttons and dials. The stocky steering wheel has well-placed buttons, while higher trim levels come with a traditional shift knob on the center console instead of a column-mounted shifter. The 2023 F-150 should have the same interior design as the current pickup truck on sale.

Tech features for the upcoming F-150 should match the current model’s. The F-150 comes with an eight-inch touchscreen, Bluetooth, Apple CarPlay, Android Auto, and a Wi-Fi hot spot as standard equipment. Available features include a 12-inch touchscreen, navigation, a Bang & Olufsen audio system, wireless Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, a wireless charging pad, satellite radio, and an HD Radio.

Ford offers the current F-150 with a dizzying number of powertrains. The standard engine is a 3.3-liter V6 that produces 290 horsepower and 265 pound-feet of torque. The next step up is a twin-turbo 2.7-liter V6 engine that’s rated at 325 hp and 400 lb-ft of torque. A 5.0-liter V8 engine is also available, producing 400 hp and 410 lb-ft of torque. There are two different versions of a twin-turbo 3.5-liter V6 engine that makes between 400 hp and 500 lb-ft of torque up to 450 hp and 510 lb-ft of torque. A turbocharged 3.0-liter diesel engine is also offered, making 250 hp and 440 lb-ft of torque. Lastly, Ford offers the F-150 with a hybrid powertrain that consists of a twin-turbo 3.5-liter V6 and an electric motor for an output of 430 hp and 570 lb-ft of torque. All of the pickup truck’s engines come with a 10-speed automatic transmission. When properly equipped, the F-150 can tow up to 14,000 pounds and has a payload capacity of up to 3,325 pounds.

In crash-testing conducted by the NHTSA, the current F-150 earned a five-star overall safety rating. The IIHS named the 2021 F-150 a Top Safety Pick vehicle. As a carryover model, we expect these ratings to remain the same.

The current F-150 doesn’t come with a lot of advanced safety features as standard. Forward collision warning, automatic emergency braking, and pedestrian detection are standard. Available safety features include blind-spot monitoring, adaptive cruise control, lane-keeping assist, evasive steering assist, traffic sign recognition, intersection assist, rear cross-traffic alert, a surround-view parking camera, reverse automatic emergency braking, park assist, Ford’s Active Drive Assist system, and Ford’s BlueCruise hands-free system. These features should be available on the 2023 F-150.

Pricing & Release Date

We expect Ford to officially announce the 2023 F-150’s on-sale date at a later time. Typically, we’ve seen Ford introduce new model years in the fall, which means we could see the 2023 F-150 arrive in fall 2022.

Without any major changes, the 2023 Ford F-150 should have a price tag that’s similar to the current model on sale. Pricing for the F-150 ranges from $30,985 to $74,800 (with destination). The high-performance Raptor costs $65,840.

The full-size F-150 competes against the Toyota Tundra, Chevrolet Silverado 1500, GMC Sierra 1500, and Ram 1500.
