Spy shots are there, so it is just a matter of time when the new 2020 Ford Super Duty series is coming out. With Detroit auto show moved for the summer, one of the big happenings late in 2019 will host the premiere of the heavy-duty trucks. Ford is preparing big changes for its F-250 and F-350 pickups. Updates under the hood will create more power and torque. Besides that, the styling will be new, and it will serve as the base for series 4, 5, 6, and 7 trucks.
The 2020 Ford Super Duty could also get a new engine. For some while, we are listening to rumors about a 7.0 engine. Ford is developing the new petrol unit which will deliver more power than the current largest drivetrain. We will also find a 6.2-liter V8, while the F-650 and F-750 are using an old-school V10 engine. Interior updates, additional features, and improvements in safety system will highlight the new model.
2020 Ford Super Duty New Engine
The new F-250 and F-350 trucks will continue to use the Power Stroke diesel engine. But, the future of petrol units is not certain yet. The new engine is definitely coming, but we don’t know exactly when, and if it is going to replace a current powertrain. The 2020 Ford Super Duty 7.0 V8 engine will be capable to produce around 500 hp and 500 lb-ft of torque. For example, the current 6.2-liter unit is good for 380 hp and 430 pound-feet. The extra power will improve the towing capacity to 20,000 pounds. Still, the new unit could be also used by the new F-150 Raptor. Some rumors go too far by announcing Super Duty Raptor model.

Properly equipped, this one offers the best towing capacity.
