One would have to go back as many as four decades back in time when a Ford vehicle wasn’t the best-selling in America. The Ford F-150 is the most popular truck in the country and although it is very potent there are some tasks that it can’t do, and enter Ford’s F-250 Super Duty. It offers capabilities more than most might ever need and also manages to impress everyone with its upmarket cabins and the latest technology on offer.

Expert Review, Pricing Analysis and Buying Guide


The 2022 model year does not see a comprehensive update for the F-250 similar to the F-150 but Ford is offering the new larger screens inside the F-250’s cabin with additional color schemes for both the interior and exterior. The SuperCab does compromise on certain premium elements offered only on the Crew Cab but yet feels worth the starting price of $38,980 against its age-old rivals, the Chevrolet Silverado 2500HD and GMC Sierra 2500HD Double Cab and the RAM 2500HD Crew Cab.

2022 Ford F-250 SuperDuty SuperCab Features

The Ford F-250 is not expected to change the trims and cabs packages and is expected to be offered in three trims with the SuperCab along with an option for two-bed sizes and two drivetrain choices. The base XL trim is mostly just the bare bones and is targeted for just fleet operators, while the XLT adds a lot more safety and convenience features. The Lariat trim is the one to go for if creature comforts are absolutely necessary for you. There are also plenty of options and packages available that can be opted for at an additional cost.

We Recommend

As the base trim is very utilitarian and the fully loaded Lariat trim becomes too costly to buy, it is best to opt for the mid-range XLT trim with a short bed and 4WD drivetrain which adds more practicality to the truck and saves money to opt for the desired optional features. 

2022 Ford F-250 SuperCab Release Date

Ford hasn’t announced the official prices of the F-250 yet but we don’t expect the prices to appreciate much when it officially launches. That being said, Ford has started pre-bookings since March 2021 and is expected to begin production this month and deliveries to begin through the summer of 2021. 

2022 Ford F-250 SuperDuty SuperCab Engine and Performance

The SuperCab version of the F-250 gets only a single engine option and misses out on the more powerful V8 engine and the mighty Power Stroke diesel engine known for its colossal 1050 lb-ft of torque. Instead, the 2022 F-250 SuperCab gets the base 6.2-liter V8 engine which produces 385 hp and 430 lb-ft of torque. The engine is mated to a 6-speed automatic transmission that powers the rear wheels as standard with an option for the 4-wheel drive setup. 

Although the larger and more powerful engines would be missed by many, the base V8 engine has plenty of grunts as it manages a 0-60 mph sprint in 8.5 seconds. The acceleration performance might not be the quickest in the segment, it does not lack in terms of the maximum payload and towing capacity, which is rated for over 4,000 lbs and 13,000 lbs respectively for the 2022 model year.

The Ford F-250 is the most affordable one in this segment but it does fall apart in terms of performance as it has the lowest towing capacity here. The RAM 2500HD might have the most sluggish acceleration, it has the best towing capacity to offer. Both the GM trucks offer the best combination of payload and towing capacities and yet have a quicker acceleration performance which makes them very desirable. 

2022 Ford F-250 SuperDuty SuperCab Fuel Economy

The heavy-duty range of trucks is not mandated by the EPA to be tested for efficiencies and hence it has become a trend for manufacturers to completely skip on this aspect of the tests. The 2022 Ford F-250 hasn’t been tested by the EPA but the older F-250 returned about 15 mpg of fuel economy on a combined city and highway driving without any load at its back, which together with the 34-gallon fuel tank translates to over 500 miles of driving range.

None of the other trucks in this segment have also been tested by the EPA for their frugality. The Chevy Silverado and the GMC Sierra 2500HD feature larger gas tanks to compensate for the slightly lower 14 mpg of combined fuel economy while the RAM 2500HD returns the highest 17 mpg combined as per multiple tests and hence employs a much smaller capacity gas tank. 

2022 Ford F-250 SuperDuty SuperCab Interior

To match up with the premium cabin and vertically mounted large infotainment screen offered by RAM, Ford has updated and introduced a new and larger screen this year. Apart from that and a few new interior color options, there have been no changes made for the 2022 model. The F-250 SuperCab misses out on many of the premium features offered by Ford and has to make do with limited options.

The base trim gets vinyl upholstery while the XL trim features cloth upholstery. Only the Lariat trim features leather upholstery and a steering wheel. There are no heated seats and steering wheel functionality available at all. In terms of space, there is an ample amount of space for the front seat occupants but the rear seat is best suited for young kids due to lack of legroom, headroom is of no concern though.

The GMC Sierra 2500 and the Chevrolet Silverado 2500 are identical corporate cousins of one another offers a massive cabin in the double cab form and opens up huge amounts of front and rear seat space when compared to the F-250. RAM does not offer a double cab with the 2500HD and instead offers a Mega Cab which is larger than the crew cab. The crew cab offers the best amount of space in this comparison.

How intuitive is the 2022 Ford F-250 SuperCab’s infotainment unit?

The new and updated larger 12.0-inch touchscreen is now available for the 2022 F-250 but only for the Lariat trim for the SuperCab body style only. That means the base XL trim gets a small 4.2-inch screen while the XLT trim gets last year’s 8.0-inch system with the SYNC 3 system. Most of the technology and features are only available with the Lariat trim and hence most of the buyers would be missing out on most of them with the lower trims. 

  • 12.0-inch SYNC 4 touchscreen infotainment system
  • 10-speaker Bang & Olufsen premium audio system w/subwoofer
  • Apple CarPlay and Android Auto compatibility w/AppLink app catalog

2022 Ford F-250 SuperDuty SuperCab Exterior

The exterior design of the 2022 F-250 does not get any major updates like the F-150 but instead continues with the same design as last year with new paint schemes to keep things fresh. As before, the base model comes with black bumpers with the chrome treatment being offered only for the Lariat trim. 

The truck feels massive from every possible angle and employs a boxy and muscular styling that demands respect when on the road. Only 18-inch wheels are offered with the SuperCab and the 20-inch ones are available as an option only. Similar to the interior features, many of the exterior features are only available for the Lariat to trim with the XLT trim getting only a handful of them.

The Ford F-250 offers a pretty high ground clearance of 8.5-inch which means one has to haul themselves while getting into the cabin. The GMC and Chevy trucks ride even higher and are also longer and wider in dimensions and hence feels more spacious when compared to the F-250. The RAM 2500HD crew cab on the other hand is similar in terms of dimensions as that of the Ford and also has the lowest ground clearance.

2022 Ford F-250 SuperDuty SuperCab Safety

Being a low-volume and high price vehicle, Ford hasn’t got the crash test ratings from both the NHTSA and the IIHS. That being said, the strong and lightweight aluminum panels and the latest safety features on offer should keep the anxiety at bay. The base trim gets all the mandatory safety functions while the driver aids are as we go up the trim ladder. Therefore, many of the features are only available with the Lariat trim. A highlight of the most prominent safety and driver assistance features available with the F-250 SuperCab has been listed below.

  • AdvanceTrac Electronic Stability Control (ESC) w/Roll Stability Control
  • Pre-Collision Assist with Automatic Emergency Braking
  • Cross-Traffic Alert
  • BLIS with Trailer Tow Coverage Blind Spot
  • Rear Parking Sensors w/Back-Up Camera

2022 Ford F-250 SuperDuty SuperCab Competition

2022 Ford F-250 SuperCab vs Chevrolet Silverado 2500HD Double Cab

The Chevy Silverado 2500HD double cab is only marginally pricier than the F-250 SuperCab but employs a larger engine under its hood which generates higher output that helps accelerate faster and offers a superior tugging power. It lacks a bit in terms of fuel efficiency but offers a more spacious cabin with plenty of technology on offer. It too lacks many of the premium features and technology with the double cab similar to the F-250. But since the performance cabin is superior to that of the F-250, we would prefer that over the Ford.

2022 Ford F-250 SuperCab vs GMC Sierra 2500HD Double Cab

The more premium alternative to its sister Chevrolet Silverado, the GMC Sierra 2500HD costs a bit more and offers a more premium interior and exterior design than the Silverado. This ultimately means that the Sierra feels a lot more premium than the F-250. The acceleration performance and tugging prowess are identical to the Silverado and superior to the Ford, hence it feels worth the additional cost when compared to the 2022 F-250 SuperCab.

2022 Ford F-250 SuperCab vs RAM 2500HD Crew Cab

The most expensive truck of this segment, the RAM 2500HD also offers a larger crew cab cabin against the double cabs and SuperCabs of the segment, which translate to superior cabin space on offer. The acceleration performance may be lackluster but the towing prowess and frugality are the best in the segment. The cabin too feels a lot more premium and also has more technology on offer. It also looks more modern than the F-250 and hence should be the preferred choice amongst the two. 

2022 Ford F-250 SuperDuty SuperCab Final Verdict

The 2022 update for the Ford F-250 sees a lot of positive changes that help it stand tall against its rivals. The SuperCab though misses out on many features offers plenty of them but only on the top Lariat trim which gets very costly for many. Rivals offer more features lower down the trim ladder and also have a larger cabin to offer. With no redesign being done of the 2022 model year, the F-250 still feels lacking in the heavy-duty segment of trucks.
