This is an exciting year for the SUV and pickup truck segment. One of the most awaited models in the truck segment will be the 2020 Ford Super Chief. The introduction of the upcoming model will most likely happen later this year. This model started as a concept back in 2006 and it was astonishing.
Now, 13 years later, the concept could finally transform into production. Of course, the new Super Chief will largely depart from the original concept for so many reasons. Whatsoever, this F-250-based variant looks very aggressive from the outside. The interior will be more subtle and modern. However, the greatest thing about the arriving Super Chief model is its powertrain.
Premium Exterior Design
We can call the upcoming 2020 Ford Super Chief a stylish SUV. It is an aggressive exterior design that also looks subtle at the same time. The exterior design will surely depart from the original concept. For the start, the concept is introduced in 2006, and times have changed since then.
Whatsoever, Super Chief will offer 79 inches of ground clearance and the boxy shape will remain. On the other hand, plenty of styling cues are borrowed from the current Ford F-150 model. Premium features such as LED headlights, taillights, and additional chrome inserts are all standard. This truck will most likely ride on 21-inch wheels.
2020 Ford Super Chief Interior Features
Most importantly, the cabin of the all-new 2020 Ford Super Chief will be premium. That means you can expect plenty of wood materials and leather upholstery. For such a monstrous truck, Super Chief will offer a quiet interior with plenty of room. The interior will also be similar to the cabin of the F-150 model.
Modern features are everywhere and most of them will be standard. An 8-inch touchscreen will be standard but Blue Oval will surely offer optional and larger unit. Wi-Fi, satellite navigation, Apple CarPlay, and Android Auto will be in the offer as well. Safety rating will be very good at least.
Powerful V10 Tri-Flex Engine
Perhaps the best part about the 2020 Ford Super Chief will be its engine. A 6.8-liter V10 Tri-Flex powertrain is one very unique type of engine. Powerful V10 is producing 510 horsepower and 400 lb-ft of torque. However, the best part about this engine is its ability to drink three different types of fuel. Strong powerplant runs on E85, Ethanol, and Hydrogen.
Thanks to that, this engine is providing very low emissions of carbon dioxide. It is one of the most eco-friendly powertrains on the market. Also, Blue Oval automaker states the fuel economy will be above average for the segment. According to Ford, mileage efficiency will see around 12 percent of improvement. Furthermore, the driver can now select which fuel type this pickup will use, during the ride.
2020 Ford Super Chief Price and Release Date
The forthcoming 2020 Ford Super Chief won’t come cheap. After all, it is a premium pickup truck with plenty of luxury. The all-new Super Chief will cost around $66,000. We can expect a couple of trim levels and probably the even higher price for upper trims, optional packages, and special variants. This model will go on sale in the last quarter of 2019.
