2020 Ford F-450 could be a fully redesigned heavy-load truck as a part of F-series made in Ford. We said “could be” since nothing particular has been confirmed from the manufacturer. However, we have reasons to believe that the truck that spy photos caught is completely new F-450.
Even though there is a limited series of crew cab version for special buyers last year, we believe that this time they tested a commercial edition for new buyers on the test we saw on photos.
- The model is fully redesigned and larger now.
- There is a new, significantly stronger engine under the hood.
- There are no changes in equipment in the cabin.
- There is no information about the price so far.
The reason that we believe in new 2020 Ford F-450 on spy photos is extremely large grille and a front end that is not common in high trims of lower models in F-series. It is not strange, as the matter of fact.
Competitors already have redesigned their models, so now we have completely new Chevrolet Silverado, and Ram 1500. You will be able to see how new F-450 becomes larger and longer, with wider trunk door and surely redesigned lights, that could be made in LED technology this time.
The manufacturer has not said much about the changes in the cabin of 2020 Ford F-450, so we have no other options than presume upgrades of existed performances and equipment. Since it has not so much impressive technology and entertainment options, we will not expect it in the new model either. However, there could be great safety performances as well.
There is a significant change in the engine that Ford offers in F-series, so 2020 Ford F-450 could have it as an option. Let us to not forget on two strong and very attractive engines that Ford offered in the past. The first one is 6.2-liter V8 petrol engine with 385 horsepower and 430 pound-feet of torque (with the option of increasing those numbers to 400 horsepower and 500 pound-feet of torque) .
Other is a 6.7-liter V8 turbodiesel engine with 950 pound-feet of torque in the new version. However, there could be another option, a 7.3-liter V8 petrol engine with the strength of 475 horsepower and 550 pound-feet of torque. All engines could be matched with ten-speed automatic transmission.
2020 Ford F-450 Release Date and Price
There is information that we could see the 2020 Ford F-450 before the summer, but the manufacturer has not confirmed it yet. Do not forget, the competitors have already released their upgraded models, so it is the last moment if Ford wants to catch the opportunity to remain in demand. The price could be slightly higher than $47,000 which was the price for the last year base option. With the new engine, it could be much higher.
