The forthcoming 2020 Ford F-450 will be even more versatile and more reliable truck than the current 2019 model. Blue Oval company will additionally upgrade the Super Duty lineup which includes the F-450 model. The new model will get a more modern look that is closer to the look of the F-150 model. Both General Motors and Dodge already started with the same strategy.
Heavy-duty model is based on the light duty model. Ford is now continuing with the same steps. After the latest spy shots, more exterior details are visible. However, the interior is still quite a mystery for everyone. On top of that, F-450 will get mechanical changes. That means the Super Duty model will get a new engine and possibly a new transmission.
2020 Ford F-450 Facelift
The forthcoming 2020 Ford F-450 comes with a striking design and it looks more attractive than before. We can’t say it is one of the best designs that we saw in the heavy-duty segment. However, Blue Oval did make it shinier and more modern. After the latest spy photos, we have a closer picture of how the ongoing model will look like. Ford will introduce a facelift. The grille is more open and it sports a large Ford’s badge in the middle.
LED headlights are brand-new and front fascia holds more chrome trims. The rear end comes with a modern pair of taillights that are even more sculpted than before. The F-450 truck will arrive in numerous different styles and trim levels. The trim level will largely determine the level of luxury from the outside, but especially from the inside.
The interior of the arriving truck will be even more pleasant. The cabin now looks closer to the F-150 light-duty model, which is a good thing. The 2020 Ford F-450 offers a high level of comfort and plenty of room. Some upgrades will surely happen, but spy photos didn’t show any interior detail. We can bet on the updated infotainment system and new Co-Pilot 360 safety suit.
The layout will surely largely remain. We expect for the base model to introduce even more standard equipment. Higher trim levels will offer premium amenities such as leather upholstery as standard.
2020 Ford F-450 Powertrain
The most significant change will happen under the bonnet. According to the latest reports, F-450 Super Duty will get a new powertrain. For the start, a 6.2-liter V8 remains standard powertrain option. This engine is producing 385 HP and 430 lb-ft of torque. Optionally, a 6.7-liter Power Stroke engine is available.
Strong turbodiesel variant generates 450 horses and up to 930 lb-ft of torque. Now, the all-new 7.0-liter V8 powertrain could find its place under the hood. This engine is more fuel efficient than the previous options. Also, it will be mated to a brand-new 10-speed automatic transmission. According to the latest information, the towing payload will be improved with up to 35,000 pounds.
Price and Release Date
The price of the 2020 Ford F-450 will be $45,000 or slightly above that. We believe the price of the base model will be increased but not significantly. However, opting for the Platinum trim level could cost you around $70,000. The Super Duty truck will go on sale in the third quarter of 2019.
