The 2020 Ford F-150
The Ford F-150 is the perfect example of a pickup truck that has transformed into a luxurious cruise machine. You can still get the typical work truck with the 8.0-foot bed and regular cab, but the family-friendly four-door truck with the shorter bed still reigns supreme!
Folks who like to mix work and play can opt for the extended cab. The 2020 Ford F-150 offers several driveline combinations and a range of engines. Unlike their competitors, Ford still constructs the pickup body panels from aluminum.
What Changes are in Store for the 2020 Ford F-150?
Not much has changed from the previous model. In fact, experts dub this as a maintenance year for the F-150. Perhaps the biggest change is that the affordable XLT trim model also features the Power Stroke turbodiesel V-6 engine.
Lariat trucks, which are a level higher than the XLTs, are equipped with a standard suite of various driver-assistance tech specs called Co-Pilot 360. The Base XL models can be outfitted with the STX Sport Appearance bundle.
The Lariat and XLT models have a Black Appearance package. Three new colors are also offered, including Rapid Red with Tinted Clearcoat, Star White Metallic Tri-Coat, and Iconic Silver.
The 2020 Ford F-150 has a superb selection of powerful engines, such as the 3.0-liter diesel with 440 lb-ft of torque. The strongest engine so far is the twin-turbo V-6, capable of towing up to a whopping 13,200 pounds! If you don’t opt for the Trailer Tow package, your F-150 can still haul nearly 7000 pounds with either a top-tier V-6 or V-8 engine.
The King Ranch model with 375-hp and V-6 engine is perhaps the best in all; even compared to large V-8 engines. The V-6 model boasts a 10-speed automatic that's slow at reacting during hard acceleration but still functions without issues. The V-8 F-150 takes 6.3 seconds to reach 60 mph and is slower than the V-6.
The ride in an F-150 is ideal over smooth surfaces. Overall, the model is a smart purchase and offers a range of engine options, such as the V-6 and diesel.
