The 2022 Ford Super Duty Series of pickup trucks will be available in the summer of 2021.

The 2022 series will be available with Ford’s new cloud-connected Sync 4 infotainment system and a 12-inch color touchscreen. For those who prefer traditional knobs or buttons, they’ll be offered for frequently used functions.

The current Super Duty series features Sync 3 and an 8.0-inch screen. Sync 4 has twice the computing power. Its upgrades include wirelessly connect to smartphones for easy integration of Apple CarPlay, Android Auto and Sync AppLink apps.

Sync 4 will be standard on Lariat and above models; Sync 3 will be standard on the XLT and as an option on the XL.

The 2022 F-Series joins the 2021 Ford F-150, 2021 Ford Mustang Mach-E and 2021 Ford Bronco offering Sync 4 technology.

Ford hasn’t yet released pricing for the 2022 Super Duty lineup, which the manufacturer announced will be available in the summer of 2021.
