News New 2020 Ford Super Duty Reclaims Its Towing Crown

New 2020 Ford Super Duty Reclaims Its Towing Crown

Capable of towing up to 37,000 lb thanks to its revised Power Stroke Diesel and its 1,050 lb.-ft. of torque

And in this corner, the new heavy-duty full-size pickup torque and towing king, the undisputed sales champion for as long as anyone can remember: the new 2020 Ford F-Series Super Duty!!!

We could have added “for this round” following the title of king. We’d seen the new 2020 Super Duty earlier this year but Ford was koi with revealing details about power and overall capacities. Truth be told, this bit of news is of no surprise to anyone that has a minimum interest in trucks.

With the newly revised brute is a selection of three engines. The first is the 6.2-litre petrol V8 which makes 385-horsepower and 430 lb.-ft. of torque. The second is the new 7.3-litre petrol V8 which is good for 430-horsepower and 475 lb.-ft. of torque.

The third and the clincher, the powerhouse, is the 6.7-liter Power Stroke turbodiesel V8. This guy puts out 475-horsepower and a skull-crushing 1,050 lb.-ft. of torque. It is with this mill that towing gets done. Conventional tow rating is of 24,200 lb. (10,976 kg.) Fifth-wheel rating rises to 32,500 lb or 14,741 kg. And finally, with a big gooseneck, the rating shoots up to 37,000 lb or 16,782 kg.

What’s not worked out in the press release about the truck is if all 1,050 lb.-ft. are available in first gear, from a dead-stop. GM was adamant that their Duramax and Heavy Duty Chevrolet Silverado and GMC Sierra trucks, despite lower towing and torque ratings, is a better tow vehicle than the RAM HD, for example. We’ll see soon enough we think.

Finally, this is not a new vehicle per say. It’s more of a revamp and brings with it some tech upgrades such as FordPass Connect with a 4G LTE modem with Wi-Fi on which up to 10 devices can connect.

The 2020 Ford F-Series Super Duty arrives at the end of this year.
