The forthcoming 2020 Ford Super Duty is a pickup truck that will hit the roads next year. We had an opportunity to see new Super Duty truck on the road testing just outside Detroit. The arriving model is subject to changes and improvements. However, those changes are mostly mechanical and some trim levels will see changes as well.
There is no doubt, this is the strongest heavy-duty lineup at the moment. Models such as F-250, F-350, and F-450 will see additional aluminum work, along with the powerful diesel engine. However, Ford’s diesel engine still slots slightly below Ram’s diesel powertrain. Tow rating is great, performances are astonishing and the interior offers a great level of comfort.
2020 Ford Super Duty changes, rumors
When it comes to exterior design, the 2020 Ford Super Duty will see some improvements and upgrades. The grille is bolder and the headlights will suffer a redesign. The rear end will get the same changes as the current F-150 model. That includes revise of the tailgate and the all-new tailgate latch is available.
The rest of the exterior will stay intact. Just like in the previous years, the body will get additional aluminum work and the grille comes with chrome accents. The list of optional equipment is long and it includes power mirrors and assist-step system. The sunroof will be optional as well and Super Duty comes in three cab configurations.
2020 Ford Super Duty interior offers high comfort
The interior of the upcoming 2020 Ford Super Duty perfectly combines fashionable design with the functionality. The cabin looks upscale and handsome and the level of comfort is higher than before says officials. However, at this moment we don’t have an image that will prove that.
Also, the manufacturer states that the whole cabin is practical, especially the layout of the controls. Additionally, dashboard holds astonishing design and upper trims are really luxurious. This is one of the Ford’s strongest points, especially because the arch-rivals are opting for a more economical approach as this is a heavy-duty segment.
However, Ford is doing things in a different way, so if you want luxury, you can equip your pickup via optional features and upper trims. Two-tone leather seats are available, along with the microsuede materials. The technology is great, and the Super Duty lineup supports the latest phone integrations.
2020 Ford Super Duty engine improvements
Perhaps the biggest change on the 2020 Ford Super Duty will happen in the engine department. If the rumors are true, a new 7.0-liter V8 will replace the current 6.2-liter V8. Current powertrain delivers 385 HP and 430 lb-ft of torque. The new engine should offer more power and better fuel economy, but we’ll have to wait for the official specs.
A 10-speed transmission is available and it should handle additional torque in a better way. Of course, a 6.7-liter turbodiesel V8 engine will remain as an option. This powertrain can produce 450 horses and up to 935 lb-ft of torque, which is a slight torque improvement.
When it comes to the towing capacity, the model 2020 Ford Super Duty F-450 gives best towing with the 33,000 pounds. Also, this model will get many features that will give this pickup best stability and easy tow.
2020 Ford Super Duty price and release date
The 2020 Ford Super Duty will start at $35,000. However, the prices could go up to $80,000, it all depends on customers needs. The Super Duty lineup will go on sale later next year as a 2020 model.
