Ram made headlines when they released their 2019 Ram HD, capable of producing 1,000 ft/lb of torque with the Cummins/Aisin powertrain combination. Ford didn’t stay idle for long. The new 2020 Superduty with the revised 6.7L Powerstroke engine will offer Ford customers 475 horsepower and 1,050 lb-ft of torque. The most exciting part? These numbers apply to every 2020 Superduty with the 6.7L Powerstroke, not just the F-350 or F-450 Dually.
Horsepower and torque are a pretty number, but how about tow capacity? The 2020 Superduty equipped with the 6.7L Powerstroke will also feature best in class tow capacity at 37,000 lbs. That is a little higher than the 2020 Ram HD at 35,100 lbs or GM’s 2020 Silverado HD at 35,500 lbs. Obviously, tow capacity is not standard across the board. 2020 Ford F-Series Superduty trucks will also boast best in class conventional tow capacity of 24,200 lbs.
Ford also took a significant step to appease Powerstroke owners who want better off-road performance. 2020 Superduty trucks featuring the Tremor Off-road package offer customers 35″ all-terrain tires and a 2 inch front lift from the factory.

Other 2020 Ford Superduty Improvements
Other 2020 Superduty changes include a new 10-speed TorqShift transmission, Pro Trailer backup assist, and trailer reverse guidance. Many features that are considered premium, like lane keeping assist, pre-collision assist with emergency braking, and blind spot monitoring will be standard on XLT trims and above. This gives customers buying lower trims access to better features and more value. Overall, Ford made their trucks safer, more powerful, and more off-road capable than they have ever been before. Be on the lookout for the new 2020 Superduty. They will be hitting dealerships by the end of this year!
