With its new hybrid powertrain and extra high-tech features, it’s easy to see why the 2020 Ford F-150 is America’s best-loved truck.
What’s new for the 2020 Ford F-150?
Hybrid power! Incredibly, Ford has plans to introduce a torque-heavy, hauling-friendly hybrid engine for the F-150. All the details have yet to be released, but you can expect a work-friendly combination of power and fuel economy.
Greater safety: This year’s high-tech driver aids are grouped into packages. The Lariat and up now come standard with some of these helpful features, while others are reserved for the top-of-the-line F-150 Limited.
Standard connectivity: Now you can take the internet with you wherever you roam, because every F-150 comes standard with a 4G LTE Wi-Fi hotspot.
Which configurations are confirmed for 2020?
Once again, the F-150 is available in six trim models: base, XL, XLT, Lariat, King Ranch, Platinum, and Limited. There are three cabins (regular, extended SuperCab, and SuperCrew) and three bed lengths on offer. You can pair your regular or SuperCab trucks with the standard 6-foot-6-inch bed or the long 8-foot bed. Choose the SuperCrew, and you can have either the standard bed or the short 5-foot-6-inch bed.
What are the 2020 Ford F-150 engine options?
Power and performance are still the F-150’s middle names. In addition to the upcoming hybrid powertrain option, shoppers can choose from the same six tried-and-true engines that were available last year.
The base engine is still the 3.3-liter V6. It gets you in gear with 290 horsepower and 265 pound-feet of torque. Upgrade to the turbocharged 2.7-liter V6 for both increased power (325 horses, 400 pound-feet of torque) and fuel economy (up to 22 miles per gallon combined).
For strong towing and hauling performance, drivers love the 5-liter V8 engine. It supplies a classic truck performance with 395 horses and 400 pound-feet of torque. Even more powerful is the top-of-the-line turbocharged 3.5-liter V6, an engine that helps the F-150 move max loads. It’s available with one of two power grades: 375 horses and 470 pound-feet of torque or 450 horses and 510 pound-feet of torque.
Ford’s turbocharged 3.0-liter diesel V6 was also designed to help you maximize fuel economy without forgoing towing and hauling performance. It earns up to 25 mpg, even as it spits out 250 horses and 440 pound-feet of torque.
When is the 2020 Ford F-150 release date?
