Ford Super Duty Performance is Best-in-Class

Ford Super Duty Performance | Phoenix, AZThe 2020 Ford F-Series Super Duty pickup truck is already living up to its predecessors with incredible capabilities. Thanks to its range of powerful engines, including a 7.3-liter V8 gas-powered engine and the 6.7-liter Power Stroke® diesel V8 engine, Ford Super Duty performance is already the best in its class in a number of ways.

  • With the Power Stroke engine, the 2020 F-Series Super Duty manages:
    • Best-in-class diesel power and torque at 475 horsepower and 1,050 lb-ft of torque.
    • Best-in-class max diesel conventional towing at 24,200 pounds.
    • Best-in-class diesel fifth-wheel towing at 32,500 pounds.
    • Best-in-class diesel gooseneck towing at 37,000 pounds.
  • With the standard gas-powered 6.2-liter engine, the 2020 F-Series Super Duty boasts best-in-class max payload capacity at 7,850 pounds.
  • With the 7.3-liter V8, the 2020 F-Series Super Duty achieves best-in-class horsepower and torque ratings at 430 hp and 475 lb-ft, respectively.

For improved towing, the Ford F-Series Super Duty is available with new technologies, including optional class-exclusive Pro Trailer Backup Assist and Trailer Reverse Guidance.

“Ford truck customers are building a better world with Super Duty, and we’re helping them work even harder with the most available diesel towing, payload, torque and power you can get in a heavy-duty pickup,” commented Mike Pruitt, Super Duty chief engineer. “We’re excited to be in the nation’s largest truck market at the State Fair of Texas announcing we’ve surpassed the kilotorque barrier and made it standard with every pickup truck featuring a Power Stroke diesel engine.”

The Ford F-Series of trucks has been the nation’s best-selling truck lineup for 42 years. With this latest iteration of the Super Duty, we don’t suspect that will change any time soon. Check out the 2020 Ford F-Series Super Duty trucks at Sanderson Ford!

Ford to Increase Super Duty Production

Ford is taking its Kentucky Truck Plant and making a huge $80 million investment.  The Kentucky Truck Plant is responsible for the production of the F-250, F-350, F-450, and F-550 versions of the beloved Super duty.  With Ford making this hefty investment, a total of 350 jobs will be added to the factory.

Other helpful contributions this $80 million will make is a possible 15% increase in the annual Super Duty production because of the facility upgrades and other retooling projects Ford is planning on doing with the plant.  These upgrades equal approximately 55,000 extra units of production.  This could mean some serious profits for the American manufacturer since they make more off of their Super Duty production than they do off their #1 truck, the Ford F-150.

The $80 million worth of upgrades to the Kentucky Truck Plant will definitely help seal its fate as the one of the top-selling manufacturers when it comes to pickups.  Want to help Ford keep up its long standing tradition of being a top-seller in the class of pickups?  Look no further than Sanderson Ford!  Check out our expansive Super Duty inventory and let us know how we can help you purchase one of America’s best-selling pickups!

“Customer demand for F-Series Super Duty trucks is growing substantially, and F-Series overall is America’s best-selling truck for 37 years running,” explains Ford president of The Americas, Joe Hinrichs. “Building on more than 100 years of manufacturing in Kentucky, we are proud to expand our profitable growth in the region as a result of our leadership in trucks and SUVS.”

Ford’s Kentucky Plant works efficiently to produce the F-250, F-450, F-550 Super Duty pickups as well as the popular ford Expedition SUV and the Lincoln Navigation. With the new facility upgrades and Ford’s plant investment, production will substantially increase in 2014 leading to the 5-millionth Ford F-Series Super Duty truck to be built!
