2020 Ford F-Series Super Duty - What's New?
If you love or just need a heavy-duty truck for work or play, the odds are good you've driven a Ford at some point. Ford trucks simply do everything better and for that matter… bigger! It comes as no surprise to Southern California Ford Dealers that the upcoming 2020 Ford F-Series Super Duty will be packed with next-level power, capability, and technology. Though it won't hit showrooms until later in the fall, we thought this would be a perfect time to take a first look at the heavy-duty truck that is sure to make some serious waves across Southern California.
The 2020 Ford F-Series Super Duty, which will come with three engine options, picks up where the 2019 models left off when it comes to power. Returning for 2020 are the 6.2-liter are the 6.7-liter Power Stroke diesel V8 engines. The 6.7-liter Power Stroke gets an upgrade with a new 36,000-psi fuel
injection system with all-new injectors that will help deliver more power and torque while controlling noise levels and optimizing combustion. The big news is the addition of the all-new Ford-designed and Ford-built 7.3-liter V8 engine. This new engine, which will come with all-new cam-in-block, overhead valve architecture, will be the most powerful gas V8 in its class, and rumor has it, it could even exceed 1,000 lb.-ft. of torque. No matter which engine you chose, you'll be able to pair it with the all-new 10-speed TorqShift automatic transmission. This transmission promises a wider gear ratio span that will be able to handle even the most challenging towing conditions. It will also come with selectable drive modes including normal, tow/haul, slippery, and deep sand and snow. Speaking of towing, initial reports say that the 2020 Ford F-Series Super Duty will offer its highest-ever conventional, gooseneck, and fifth-wheel towing and payload ratings ever.
Technology to Improve Productivity
At Southern California Ford Dealers, we've always respected the fact that Ford doesn't add technology to their trucks just to prove they can. The 2020 Ford F-Series Super Duty continues that trend by adding some exciting new hi-tech features that help increase productivity. Perhaps the most impressive addition for 2020 is the class-exclusive new Pro Trailer Backup Assist. This modern tool helps owners tow larger trailers with accuracy and ease. Drivers can take their hands off the wheel and use the Pro Trailer Backup Assist knob and the standard reverse camera to guide trailers on the street or at the worksite. This new feature will work in combination with all trailer styles, even the always-challenging gooseneck trailers. Other major available and standard driver-assist technology features include:
- FordPass Connect with embedded 4G LTE modem with Wi-Fi access for up to 10 devices,
- Blind Spot Information System with trailer coverage monitors
- Pre-Collision Assist with Automatic Emergency Braking
- Wireless charging and USB-C ports
When it comes to style, the 2020 Ford F-Series Super Duty will not disappoint. You'll be the envy of all your friends and co-workers thanks to the uniquely designed high-airflow grille, LED headlamps, and a bold new bumper. The interior of the 2020 Ford F-Series Super Duty will feature available Onyx Argento wood, leather-wrapped instrument panel topper, wrapped door armrests, and Miko suede headliner.
