For some of us, it’s always all about the power. And if you’re the kind of person who needs a truck that dumps, can haul big hay bales or be converted for contractor or utility work, Ford’s got you in mind. The chassis-cab version of the 2020 Ford Super Duty is ready to start printing your paycheck, with additional horsepower and other powertrain upgrades leading the list of improvements. Leading the way, literally, is an all-new 7.3-liter V-8, the biggest gasoline-fueled engine in its class, rated at 350hp with 468-lbs.ft. of torque on tap at 3,900 RPM.
Need still more torque? Then you can opt for the new, Navistar-built 6.7-liter Power Stroke V-8 diesel, which produces a maximum of 825-lbs.ft. of axle-twisting work ability, all at just 1,600 RPM, a boost of 75-lbs.ft. over the previous diesel’s output. There’s also a 6.2-liter gasoline V-8 in the Super Duty power lineup. All can be connected to a new 10-speed TorqShift automatic transmission. Depending on engine selection, the Super Duty can be optioned to produce best-in-class payload capacity of 12,750 pounds. Interactive Ford Telematics and Data Services are available to help fleet operators keep track of their trucks’ productivity, among other functions.
