2020 Ford F-Series Super Duty can tow 37,000 pounds
The company is staking claim to several "best in class" titles.
Ford has finally announced towing and payload ratings for the 2020 F-Series Super Duty lineup, claiming several "best-in-class" titles.
The company says trucks equipped with the 6.7-liter Power Stroke diesel engine lead in maximum gooseneck towing of up to 37,000 pounds, maximum fifth-wheel towing of 32,500 pounds, and maximum conventional towing of 24,200 pounds.
The diesel engine is Ford's most powerful ever, with 475 horsepower and 1,050 pound-feet of torque. An available 7.3-liter V8 is also said to offer best-in-class power in the gasoline segment, with 430 horsepower and 475 pound-feet of torque.
The standard 6.2-liter engine may not be the most powerful but achieves a segment-topping payload rating of 7,850 pounds.
"To put the capability of Super Duty into perspective, its maximum available towing figure means a properly configured F-450 could tow about as much weight as 31 American quarter horses at 1,200 pounds," Ford says. "That is one big trailer."
Maximum towing capacity has increased across the entire Super Duty lineup including the F-250, F-350 and F-450 for the 2020 model year.
