Exterior looks modern and practical while the interior will get further technology updates.

2020 Ford F-750 Exterior Updates
You probably think that there is no need to pay special attention to the design of the medium duty truck. Ford clearly thinks the opposite. Blue Oval manufacturer still prioritize the performance. However, the 2020 Ford F-750 will look surprisingly pleasing and modern. The inspiration is taken from Ford’s E-Series vans.
Plenty of similar cues are visible at first glance. However, the same cues and features are enlarged on the F-750 truck. That includes the hood, bumpers and even the headlights. Generally, F-750 looks like the larger Super Duty model. However, Medium Duty models are coming with a chassis cab configuration. The list of standard equipment is impressive and this truck looks practical.
Don’t expect any type of luxury inside the cabin. The 2020 Ford F-750 will get pretty basic stuff. The goal is to deliver a workhorse that will get the job done. However, we can’t say the comfort is awful. Far from that. However, base vinyl seats, standard radio and the lack of some systems are making the interior average. Thanks to the optional equipment, you can load more luxury if you need to.
The infotainment system is up to date. The instrument panel is upgraded and the steering column is all-new. Even the instrument cluster and the steering wheel are changed. Bluetooth and USB ports are available as standard. However, if you want something premium, you won’t find such a thing inside the F-750 model.

Optionally, you can buy adaptive cruise control, lane departure warning, and electronic stability control.
