2020 Ford F-350 Platinum, Super Duty, Specs

0

The 2020 Ford F-350 is the mightiest truck in the world. It can tow over 32,000 pounds. Also, class-leading torque lands above 900 lb-ft. That is not all. The working mule offers petrol and diesel engines, as well as the dual-rear-wheel configuration (also known as F-350 Dually). The new generation of the Super-Duty truck is on the way. We expected to see it at Detroit Auto Show, but it seems like Ford has some problems in the final phases of development. During 2018 we could see spy photos of the next-gen truck, but the official debut will wait for a bit longer.

Whatsoever, the 2020 Ford F-350 will have plenty of features and build options. Engines and its outputs are not the only things that draw so many attention. There are also high-end trims. The most expensive unit is F-350 Limited and it will stay for the 2020 season. This time, the price will go beyond $85,000. Well, the base model is also offering cool stuff. So, with some upgrades, you can build comfortable and elegant working mule. If you need less power and options, we recommend you the F-250 or even F-150 full-size truck. Ford F-350 is for serious truckers only.

Under the hood of the 2020 Ford F-350 will lay a 6.2-liter petrol engine. This V8 unit is paired with a six-speed automatic transmission. This combo is good for 385 hp and 430 lb-ft of torque and towing capacity of 17,000 pounds. Models that use this engine are available with a short and long bed. Also, the towing capacity and fuel consumption depend on drive mode. Both 4×2 and 4×4 are available for F-350.

Petrol engine can offer nice outputs and performance. But, the favorite engine remains a turbodiesel unit. PowerStroke delivers a 6.7-liter V8 drivetrain, a monster that is capable to compete with other trucks in the heavy-duty class. The total output of this one is 440 hp and 935 lb-ft of torque. With further improvements, Ford will beat Ram 3500 HD, which was able to create 930 lb-ft of torque. Again, a 4×4 and 4×2 modes are available. Maximum conventional towing capacity is 21,000 pounds. A 6R140 automatic transmission is there to handle massive torque.

Towing capacity of 21,000 pounds is not the best you can get from the F-350. 5th-wheel/gooseneck towing will allow you to haul 34,000 pounds. Special setup is required here. The truck needs dual-rear-wheel configuration. This will be a well-known 2020 Ford F-350 dually model. You won’t get it with F-250 or F-150 trucks. Ram and Chevy Silverado are also in the market with such setup. But their configurations can’t reach the towing capacity of the F-350.
