In 1992 the truck was given a few new engines to choose from, while a few others were discontinues, along with the many firsts, like gas charged shocks, and improved handling. Also added which was new to the Ford F-Series would be the third brake light, a new interlock for the brake-shift, and a new kind of air conditioner that was chlorofluorocarbon free. The discontinued engines from this line total in all the engines it used, which were the IDI Diesel and turbo IDI diesel V8 (185 horses, and 190 horses respectively) the Windsor V8 5.8 Lightning, Windsor V8 5.8, Windsor 5.0 V8 (240 horses, 210 horses, and 185 horses respectively) along with the straight 6, the 385 V8, and the Power Stroke Diesel.

The Ford F-Series underwent a major overhaul in its design and where it was made, culminating in the new style of the Ford F-Series nose, and the reassignment of numbers along with the Super Duty truck names being given to a whole line, while two others were delegated to just being regular (and the 250 being regular lasted a year). There was a new four and five speed automatic transmission, with a six speed manual, and a new line of engine to choose from. The new Engines consisted of the Essex 4.2L V6 at 202 horses and was discontinued in 2003, the Triton 4.6L V8 220 horse engine, which was discontinued a year after 1997 and replaced with a new Triton 4.6L V8 engine that had 231 horses.
