Ford F650 Exterior Facelift
Don’t expect significant exterior upgrades. The all-new 2020 Ford F650 is mostly a carryover. However, the side profile will get a more subtle approach. Visually, this medium-duty truck looks very stylish and modern. The front grille is unchanged, along with the headlights and the hood. Speaking of hood, its sloped design looks very impressive.
Whatsoever, F150 wear a similar bonnet. Roof, door sills, wheels and windshield will remain. Styling-wise, F650 is similar to the F250 heavy-duty pickup. The same cab variants are available once again. On the other hand, the Blue Oval could introduce one or two brand-new exterior paints.
This time, Ford’s medium-duty pickup truck will get more tech updates. Furthermore, the list of standard features is longer now.

All of these features are standard on the range-topping trim level. Interior is practical like before and room from the inside is generous.

New Gasoline Engine

Mid-range trim levels are good for 330 hp and 725 lb-ft of torque. Now, the time has come for the new gasoline unit. Ford will from now on offer a 7.3-liter V8.
We are still waiting for the official engine specs to go public. New gasoline V8 will arrive with the TorqShift 10-speed automatic transmission. The new gearbox will provide better ride quality, no doubt about it. Ford also promised a better tow rating for the diesel powertrain. On top of that, new F650 will lose some weight so the fuel economy could also be improved, but not significantly.
