Ford is making some tests on its heavy-duty pickup truck somewhere near Detroit. The vehicle was wearing camouflage, so we were unable to see what’s going on beneath. Still, according to the newest reports, the 2020 Ford Heavy Duty will most likely get pretty much the same styling changes as the 2018 F-150.

The changes include a totally new grille which features a bit rounder and softer look, as well as a notably larger “Ford” logo. The truck will probably get the same headlights and taillights, as well as a totally new exhaust system which has to be improved irrespective of engine choice because the carmaker prepares a totally new gasoline and updated diesel mill for the 2020 Ford Heavy Duty.
Regarding the oil-chugging option, well, the truck will keep the current 6.7-liter Powerstroke turbodiesel V8. However, the mill will reportedly deliver more power and torque from today’s 450 horsepower and 935 pound-feet of torque. More precisely, some reports claim that the carmaker finally made to lift torque to 1,000 lb-ft, which is the absolutely astonishing result.
The gasoline-powered 2020 Ford Heavy Duty is going to lose both existing options in favor of one completely new V8 engine. More precisely, the 6.8-liter Triton V10 and the 6.2-liter V8 will make space for the 7.0-liter V8 mill which should deliver more power from the predecessors, as well as notably better fuel economy.
The carmaker plans to update the current tech of the truck and to add Ford’s Co-Pilot 360 safety tech for the first time. The camouflaged truck has been spied form the outside only, so we have no idea what the automaker plans to do with the interior. Still, we do expect some better quality materials and an updated dashboard.
The 2020 Ford Super Duty will reportedly be introduced in the second half of 2019. The updated pickup truck will probably cost a few hundred more form today’s model.
