The current generation of the famous Super Duty series has been around for a couple of years, so the upcoming refresh for the next year definitely sounds natural, especially if we consider that HD models of closest rivals are coming. Therefore, it’s not strange that the company made modifications in various aspects. As you’ve probably heard, a new gasoline engine is coming, but that’s not the only powertrain change to come. The 2020 Ford F-250 Diesel will also receive changes, as the company promises power and torque increase.
A new transmission is here as well. Besides these powertrain upgrades, the 2020 Ford F-250 Diesel will also come with more typical mid-cycle changes, such as new styling, new standard equipment, and similar things. On the other side, the cabin will remain pretty much untouched.
2020 Ford F-250 Diesel Specs
Of course, the first things that come to mind about this refresh is powertrain. As we already mentioned, there is an all-new 7.3-liter gasoline engine, but we will focus on 2020 Ford F-250 Diesel specs in this article. Latest reports suggest that the company will make a couple of modification on this engine, which will provide more power and torque. This makes perfect sense if we consider that the new Ram HD models will feature a diesel engine with more than 1000 pound-feet of torque.
On the other side, Ford’s well-known 6.7-liter turbodiesel currently delivers around 450 horsepower and 935 pound-feet of torque. We have no doubt that the new version of this turbodiesel will reach four figures as well. Of course, this will have a positive effect on working capabilities as well, though we don’t expect that the 2020 Ford F-250 Diesel towing capacity will bring some significant improvements. The current version can tow up to 18.500 pounds.
Another big novelty for this update is a new transmission, as the 2020 Ford F-250 Diesel is about to come with a new 10-speed automatic gearbox.2020
Ford F-250 Diesel Exterior
This update also brings various changes in terms of the exterior design. Despite the fact that the current generation is present for only a couple of years, the 2020 Ford F-250 Diesel will come with some notable styling changes. Of course, most of them are at the front end. You can notice a reshaped grille, which is also slightly bigger and looks far more massive. Headlights are new, as well as the front bumper.
On the other end, there are new taillights and some revisions on the tailgate. If we add to this a couple of new styling additions from the side, this looks like a fine portion of changes. Still, the overall design remains largely the same. Proportions are the same, as well as the offered body styles. Once again, you can choose between regular, extended and crew cab layouts. Also, there are two-bed sizes in the offer – 6.8- or an 8.2-foot bed length.
On the inside, things are pretty much the same. The dashboard design, as well as the rest of the cabin carried on with a familiar look and the only differences that can be noticed, are in the top-range Limited models, which came with new color schemes, some materials revisions, and similar things. Still, there is a fine portion of novelties in terms of tech goodies. Despite we are talking about a model that is primarily a working machine, the 2020 Ford F-250 Diesel will be very generous in terms of tech features. All models will be equipped with 4G LTE modem and Wi-Fi hotspot.
In terms of safety, a big novelty is an optional Pro Trailer Backup Assist, which is a system that helps to reverse while towing a trailer. Of course, those are just some of the novelties for this update. Each trim level comes with a couple of more interesting additions to the list of standard equipment.
2020 F-250 Diesel Release Date and Price
Despite that the new model has already been presented, it won’t go on sale before the third quarter of the year. When it comes to the 2020 Ford F-250 Diesel Price, it definitely won’t be much different compared to the current model, which starts at around 42.000 dollars.
