2020 Ford Super Duty Chassis Cabs Ready for the Next-Generation of Work


The 2020 Ford Super Duty is the toughest, hardest-working generation of Class 3-5 chassis cab vehicles yet. Its high-strength, military-grade, aluminum alloy body is lighter than steel yet incredibly strong, meaning some of that weight savings can be invested in more robust axles, chassis and steering components. The fully boxed under-cab and C-channel aft-of-cab frame are 95 percent high-strength steel. This makes for dependable towing and hauling performance with a wide weight range of service bodies suitable for any vocation.

The lineup has been given a technology update for 2020 starting with standard modems featuring 4G LTE Wi-Fi for up to 10 devices to help keep drivers and crews connected whether on the job or on the road. Ford Co-Pilot360 technologies are now available. These include available auto high-beam headlamps and available lane departure warning. Automatic Emergency Braking, now available on 2020 Super Duty starting with the base XL truck, can help operators avoid or mitigate collisions. Vocational customization is simplified with an available programmable upfitter interface module.

New Ford Telematics and Ford Data Services are available across the Super Duty lineup to help commercial customers operate their fleets more efficiently. The technology enables fleet managers to enhance uptime and asset utilization, optimize running costs, improve driver behavior and protect their fleets using Ford original equipment-grade telematics software. It integrates with a company’s existing telematics service provider or can take vehicle data directly into its own information technology system – giving customers the power of choice. Vocational customization is simplified with an available class-exclusive programmable upfitter interface module.

Ford is the only Class 3-5 manufacturer that designs and builds all of its own engines and transmissions. Offering a choice between the standard 6.2-liter gas V8, all-new 7.3-liter gas V8 and third-generation 6.7-liter Power Stroke® diesel V8 allows customers to spec the performance, efficiency and cost benefits that are right for their business. All engines are available with Ford’s all-new TorqShift® heavy-duty 10-speed automatic transmission with optional live drive power takeoff, which comes standard with diesel-powered models.
