2022 F-250 Super Duty Interior

The F-250's interior is more about functionality than anything else. All occupants get a decent amount of space, especially in the Crew Cab. On base XL models, you get the necessities like manual air conditioning, a 2.3-inch productivity screen, and a rearview camera, but that's about it. This isn't great but it's a lot better than workhorses from the early '90s that came with a windscreen and some air on the inside. We also liked the fact that the climate control gets big knobs which are great when working with gloves. High-end models get a larger infotainment screen running SYNC 3. Higher-trim models also get leather trim and more features. We can't fault the quality of the base model as expectations are low, but the high-end models are starting to show their age in terms of build quality. Ram does a better job of crafting a truck interior that feels luxurious.

Seating and Interior Space

After using our grappling hook and air sickness medicine to get into the cabin (the Tremor Package that this truck features raises the ride height considerably but thankfully it has step boards), we were greeted by seats wide enough to fit President Taft's generous behind and armrest storage that would probably fit your average-sized globe.

It has a little less front headroom than the Chevy Silverado 2500 with 40.8 inches of space, about the same as the Ram Heavy Duty. It has more shoulder room than its American counterparts and falls in the middle in hip room. As you can see, all three are within inches of each other.

The F-250 will seat five passengers in the Super Cab and Crew Cab configurations, but can fit six with a front bench seat. In the back of the Crew Cab, riders get 40.4 inches of headroom, 43.6 inches of legroom - which was plenty for an average-sized human - 65.9 inches of shoulder room, and 64.7 inches of hip room. Each of those dimensions are bigger than the Silverado Crew Cab and the Mega Cab version of the Ram.

Interior Colors and Materials

With around $50,000 separating the base XL and the top-spec Platinum, there's going to be a big difference in terms of interior quality. Since durability is a top priority in fleet specification, the XL comes with tough vinyl in Medium Earth Gray, although this can be upgraded to cloth in the same color for a minimal cost. XLT trim upgrades to cloth seats in either Medium Earth Gray. From the Lariat upward, leather upholstery is standard on the seats and steering wheel. In Lariat trim, you can choose between Black Onyx or Baja, the latter being a new color for the 2022 model year.

After that, the F-250 gets quite a bit more luxurious. The King Ranch specification includes model-specific Kingsville Antique Affect leather in a Black/Java mix, while the door trim gets higher-quality panels with leather trim and woodgrain inserts. The Platinum trim comes with premium leather in Black or Dark Marsala. The Limited trim only has one option: Two-tone premium leather in Admiral Blue/Light Slate. It also boasts dark ash swirl wood trim, a Miko suede headliner, and a leather-wrapped instrument panel.

2022 F-250 Super Duty Trunk and Cargo Space

The six-and-three-quarter foot bed has 65.4 cubic feet of cargo capacity, while the eight-footer takes it up to 78.5 cubes. The Chevrolet Silverado's longest box is a bit bigger but not enough to make a difference when it comes to deciding. Maximum loading capacity depends on the model, but even the Crew Cab 4x4 is rated to carry up to 3,210 lbs. The Regular Cab 4x2 can carry up to 4,260 lbs.

Interior storage space also depends on body style. Five-seat models get a big center console, while six-seaters get a smaller compartment. SuperCab and Crew Cab models have under-seat storage (optional on some trims) hidden beneath the rear seats. The six-seater XLT model's front seats also fold flat in a 40/20/40 configuration, offering more under-seat storage. There are plenty of cupholders to go around, and every model in the lineup can be ordered with a bed step for easier access to the rear.

2022 F-250 Super Duty Infotainment and Features

Features

Again, the result of such a big price difference is a massive difference in the specification. The base XL gets manual air conditioning, a rearview camera, a small 2.3-inch productivity screen within the instrument cluster, automatic on/off headlamps, and a tilt-and-telescoping steering column. XLT models are equipped with more family-friendly features like blind-spot monitoring, pre-collision assist, and regular cruise control, plus it gets a larger 4.2-inch LCD productivity screen. As you work your way up the trim levels, this hard-working truck gets a lot more pleasurable to live with every day. Higher-spec models add features like power-adjustable front seats, rear parking sensors, dual-zone automatic climate control, ambient interior lighting, power-adjustable pedals linked to a memory system, intelligent access with push-button ignition, and heated/ventilated front seats. Adaptive cruise control, adaptive steering, and lane-keeping alert are some of the useful driver-assist technologies that are included or available on the upper trims.

Infotainment

The best thing about Ford's infotainment setup is that it features two big knobs for volume and tuning. Those are easy to grab without looking and the most important functions to control easily. On the base XL, the SYNC interface consists of a tiny LCD screen in the center stack, allowing access to App-Link, voice recognition, Bluetooth, and 911 Assist. A Wi-Fi hotspot is standard too. This basic setup gets you only four speakers in Regular Cab models and six speakers for the Super and Crew Cabs. The SYNC 3 system in the XLT is far more comprehensive and includes an eight-inch touchscreen, Apple CarPlay, Android Auto, SiriusXM satellite radio, and two USB-C ports. At this level, the speaker count climbs to five for the Regular Cab and seven for the Super/Crew Cabs.

The Lariat takes a welcome step up by introducing a 10-speaker B&O premium sound system along with SiriusXM Traffic Plus and Travel Link. In the King Ranch and above, voice-activated navigation and HD Radio are added.

SYNC 3 continues with the function bar at the bottom, allowing drivers to swap between navigation, radio and phone. It also features new more natural voice commands. It has new points of interest too, and remembers your previous entries to learn more about your habits. The system works adequately, but doesn't feel as exciting or new as some of the German or Korean makes. But it was glitch-free and worked quickly to start Apple CarPlay, which is one of the most important things as that's what we use most often when taking a drive.

For 2022, Lariat trims and above come with the faster SYNC 4 infotainment system that includes enhanced voice recognition, wireless Apple CarPlay/Android Auto, and a much nicer 12-inch touchscreen display.
