The world’s best-selling pickup truck has just been redesigned and that’s why we expect no significant changes in the next few years. As the 2022 Ford F-150 Diesel is about to represent the second production year of the current generation, it’s obvious that it won’t bring any particular novelties. You may count on familiar design characteristics, which offer a lot of good things, whether it’s about convenience or capabilities.
This pickup is capable, but also offers a high level of comfort. Furthermore, we really like the fact that there are so many variants on the offer, even with a diesel engine. The best we could see for the next year are minor novelties regarding the standard and available equipment. Other than that, things will remain the same.
As there are no significant changes to come, we expect that the 2022 Ford F-150 Diesel will hit the market sometime in the last quarter of the year.
2022 Ford F-150 Diesel Design
Design-wise, the 2022 Ford F-150 Diesel will carry on in the same way. This model has just been redesigned and it’s now notably better than before. The recent redesign has brought evolutionary changes only. Most of the platform remained the same as in the previous generation, though the blue oval company continued to develop its unique all-aluminum chassis. Also, there is a new suspension setup, which makes the ride quality better, though still not as impressive as the one that characterizes the Ram 1500.
Visually, the 2022 Ford F-150 Diesel could bring new color options to the table but the overall aesthetics will remain the same. You may count on a styling that has brought evolutionary changes only, but which makes this truck look more mature than before.
The same thing can be said for interior design. This truck looks nice from the inside, though the Ram 1500 looks better. Still, most drivers will be satisfied with the build quality, as well as with the materials. Still, keep in mind that materials and color schemes largely depend on the version you choose.
Of course, you may count on three familiar cab styles on the offer. There is a single–row Regular Cab model, which is available with either 6.5- or 8.0-foot bed. The SuperCab model comes with two rows of seats and also comes with two bed lengths on the offer. You may choose between 6.5- and 8.0-foot beds. Finally, there is the SuperCrew model, with more passenger space, which comes with either 5.5 or 6.5-foot bed.
2022 Ford F-150 Diesel Engine
Things under the hood will also remain the same. The 2022 Ford F-150 Diesel will continue to use a familiar 3.0-liter V6 turbodiesel, which puts out around 250 horsepower and 440 pound-feet of torque. Of course, it also comes in pair with a 10-speed automatic transmission, which does a pretty fine job.
Although with less power than rivals, the F-150 Diesel is quite capable and competitive. You may count on a max towing capacity of 12.100 pounds, which is slightly less than Ram 1500 Diesel, but a lot more than you can tow with Chevy Silverado Diesel. The max payload capacity goes around 1.840 pounds.
The diesel engine will be available in the following trim levels: XL, XLT, Lariat, King Ranch, and Platinum, which is pretty much all except for the range-topping Limited trim, as well as for the new Tremor model.
The XL is the most basic version of the truck, a workhorse. It comes with manual accessories, steel wheels, vinyl upholstery, but also with tech features like an 8-inch touch screen, a Wi-Fi hot spot, USB ports, Bluetooth, Android Auto, and Apple CarPlay. You may also count on safety features like a rearview camera, forward collision warning, pedestrian detection, and forward automatic emergency braking.
The XLT is a bit of an upgrade, which adds standard features like power windows and door locks, lane keep assist, rear parking sensors, blind spot monitoring.
The mid-range Lariat adds goodies like leather upholstery, power-adjustable front seats, heated and ventilated front seats, dual-zone automatic climate control, push-button start, remote start, a 12-inch digital gauge cluster, a 12-inch touch screen etc.
The King Ranch is where luxury starts. Some of the highlights are features like an in-bed power outlet, heated rear seats, a heated steering wheel, adaptive cruise control, front parking sensors, intersection assist, navigation, an eight-speaker Bang & Olufsen audio system, HD Radio, and wireless charging.
Finally, there is the Platinum trim, with goodies like massaging front seats, traffic sign recognition, and power-deployable running boards.
