What does it mean to be best in class? Simply stated, it means that you – or in this case, the 2020 Ford Super Duty® – can carry more, pull more and has the most power.1 It also means that there’s only one choice if you’re looking for the most capable full-size truck with a GVWR of more than 8.500 pounds.


Let us give you the specifics:

·        Best-in-class maximum gooseneck of up to 37,000 pounds1

·        Best-in-class fifth-wheel towing of 32,500 pounds1

·        Best-in-class maximum conventional towing of 24,200 pounds1

·        Best-in-class maximum payload capacity of 7,850 pounds1

·        Best-in-class diesel power and torque with third-generation 6.7-liter Power Stroke® V8 delivering 475 horsepower and 1,050 ft.-lbs.1

·        Best-in-class gas power and torque with 430 horsepower and 475 lb.-ft. from all-new 7.3-liter V81


To make sure this truck would be ready to meet the demands we knew you’d ask of it, we put it through serious testing, to the tune of 19 million miles, pushing its high-strength steel boxed frame; high-strength, aluminum-alloy body; integrated gooseneck hitch mounts; third-generation 6.7-liter Power Stroke diesel and all-new Ford-designed, Ford-built 10-speed heavy-duty TorqShift® automatic transmission.  


“Ford truck customers are building a better world with Super Duty and we’re helping them work even harder with the most towing, most payload, most torque and most power you can get in a heavy-duty pickup,” said Mike Pruitt, Super Duty Chief Engineer. “We’re taking this truck to the next level by enhancing owner productivity through purposeful innovations and new technology.”


That new technology includes the available class-exclusive Pro Trailer Backup Assist.™ The system allows you to easily steer your trailer by way of the reverse camera, including into the tightest of spaces. The truck’s Trailer Reverse Guidance system shows trailer angle and direction and provides steering suggestions to most efficiently direct your trailer backward. Both systems are built to accommodate all trailer styles, including fifth-wheel and gooseneck. More useful trailering tech: BLIS® (Blind Spot Information System) with trailer coverage, which monitors for vehicles in your blind spots – even when you’re towing.


We also made connectivity standard with FordPass Connect™ embedded 4G LTE modem with Wi-Fi access2 for up to 10 devices, keeping crews in communication no matter where the job takes you. Modern touches include the addition of wireless charging and USB-C ports to power your devices.


The 2020 Ford Super Duty will arrive at dealerships at the end of this year.
