When the redesigned 2020 Ford Super Duty launches later this year it’ll be ready to quake with a new off-road package. Ford says they’ve designed this truck for the Super Duty customer who uses their truck for more than just work. More ground clearance, bigger shocks, and bigger tires add more off-road capability for the outdoorsman. Pricing and specs will be announced closer to launch.
2020 FORD SUPER DUTY FIRST LOOK BY AUTO CRITIC STEVE HAMMES. Serious work trucks are judged on 2 main criteria; towing and payload.
So Ford is ratcheting up both in their all-new 2020 Super Duty. Shipping to dealers this fall, the Super Duty lineup which includes the F-250, F-350 and F-450 is powered by a 6.2-liter gas V8 as standard or customers can upgrade to the next generation 6.7-liter Power Stroke diesel V8 making more horsepower and torque or opt for a new entry; a 7.3-liter gas V8.
Though numbers have not been released, Ford says they expect the 7.3 to be the most powerful gas V8 in its class. All 3 engines will use a new Ford-developed 10-speed automatic transmission designed for the harshest towing conditions.
Without citing specifics, Ford says this Super Duty offers its highest-ever conventional, gooseneck and fifth-wheel towing and payload ratings. Optimized cooling across the range is courtesy of a new front-end design that also enhances the performance of the LED headlamps.
Ford says the improved front bumper also makes using the utility hooks easier. The cabin has been completely refreshed, crafted with the use of even more luxurious materials on the Limited model and modern touches such as wireless charging, Wi-Fi, and Pro Trailer Backup Assist add technology, connectivity and convenience.
Though pricing has yet to be released, the current Super Duty lineup starts at under $35,000 while an F-450 Limited can cross $90,000.
