Ford’s well-known plan of a three-year transition is still present. After new bodywork in 2017, the rest of the vehicle has to be completed. New F-350 will get new powertrain option and we can expect great towing and payload capacity.
New F-350 Gets New Daytime Running Lights
In order to improve its towing capacity, Ford will offer stronger steel frame. The 2020 Ford F-350 Super Duty will look very modern for heavy-duty segment. Front fascia looks intimidating with new LED daytime running lights. On top of that, halogen headlights are available as standard.
Tow hooks are horizontally-mounted this time. Front grille looks huge and it comes with two long chrome strips. Huge mirrors are visible at first glance and side profile won’t offer plastic claddings. Boxy appearance will remain and we can expect some new optional features.
Interior is More Comfortable
Blue Oval manufacturer is improving the cabin of its Super Duty models year after year. The 2020 Ford F-350 Super Duty will be the best one so far. The cabin is additionally modernized and it looks more upscale. Most of the systems will remain but all of the systems will gain important updates. On top of that, Ford will offer more safety equipment.
Seats are extremely comfortable, especially on the upper trim levels. Power adjustable pedals are now available as an option. Dark interior theme looks perfect and stylish. Front seats are 10-way power adjustable. B&O 10-speaker sound system comes as optional feature. Six-inch angular step bars are standard on higher trim levels.

However, a 6.7-liter V8 is still the most popular choice among the customers. This turbodiesel powertrain is producing 450 hp and 935 lb-ft of torque. With this engine Ford F-350 can tow up to 35,000 pounds. Payload capacity is rated at 7,640 pounds. Unlike the new gasoline engine, diesel is available with a 6-speed automatic gearbox.
