For nearly 40 years, the Ford F-Series of trucks have been the best selling vehicles in America, and that pedigree is built on their reputation for unparalleled power and performance. The 2020 Ford F-150 continues this legacy with an array of impressive options and work potential that truly sets it apart from other pickups on the road. While the F-250 and F-350 offer even more power, the Ford F-150 is truly the perfect truck, offering tremendous towing potential and payload for getting work done, with plenty to offer on the weekend.
There are six different engines available for the 2020 Ford F-150, so no matter what you are looking for, you will find it here. Of course, some of these are restricted based on trim levels, but with seven trims to choose from, there is no shortage of options available to you. This really gives you the freedom to lean into what you are looking for most and pick the F-150 that will deliver. If you want unbeatable off-road potential, for example, then choose the gorgeous Raptor edition, while the Limited offers luxury and sophistication that matches anything on the road.
Gorgeous looks and serious power are great, but all of that is meaningless if your vehicle cannot also keep you safe. The 2020 Ford F-150 includes one of the best safety packages on the road, with incredible standard features and available options that take it even further. Inside, the F-150 is an incredible example of modern sophistication in a pickup, with great options for luxury, convenience, and tech features that make it a true joy to drive. Come visit us at DePaula Ford today to see the F-150 and the rest of the modern Ford lineup for yourself.
There are six different engine options available for the 2020 Ford F-150, which means you can find an engine that is perfect for you no matter what you are looking for. This includes standard gas engines and a diesel engine, so keep that in mind as you consider your options. Two of these options are essentially the same engine with one of them boosted for high output, but that boosting makes a big difference.
It all starts with a 3.3L Ti-VCT V6 engine that offers up to 290 hp and 265 lb-ft of torque, which is plenty for a starting option. This engine comes with a 6-speed automatic transmission and is standard on the starting trims. From there, you can step up to a 2.7L EcoBoost V6 engine, which can provide up to 325 hp and 400 lb-ft of torque. That is a pretty solid upgrade if you want more power but do not need the highest amount possible.
Then there is a 5.0L Ti-VCT V8 engine, which is one of the best “middle of the road” options anywhere, offering up to 395 hp and 400 lb-ft of torque. While there are options with more power, this is the best engine choice if maximum payload is your primary concern, and it comes paired with a 10-speed automatic transmission. There is also a 3.0L Power Stroke Turbo-Diesel V6 engine available, which offers just 250 hp but an impressive 440 lb-ft of torque. If you want a diesel engine with great fuel economy, then this is a solid choice: it gets an estimated 22 mpg in the city and 30 mpg highway, for a combined 25 mpg.
Finally, there is a 3.5L EcoBoost V6 engine available, which offers up to 375 hp and 470 lb-ft of torque for great towing potential. If you still want even more power, then there is a High-Output version of the 3.5L EcoBoost engine, which can provide up to 450 hp and 510 lb-ft of torque for the most power available with the 2020 Ford F-150. This comes standard in the off-road-focused Raptor and the Limited trims.
While towing and payload might be the biggest consideration for someone looking at a super-duty pickup, the 2020 Ford F-150 can still get a lot of work done. If you are interested in the F-150, then you no doubt want to be sure it can handle whatever you plan on throwing at it. The F-150 offers fantastic towing and payload capacities, but specific numbers depend on which trim you look at and the overall configuration of the truck.
For example, the 2020 Ford F-150 XL, with the 3.5L EcoBoost V6 engine, a SuperCrew cab, and the 6-foot box, with the Max Trailer Tow Package, offers a maximum towing of up to 13,200 lbs. The same trim and engine, but with the SuperCab, however, has a maximum towing of up to 11,900 lbs. Other engines and configurations can bring that down to as low as 5,000 lbs of maximum towing, but that amount is the lowest it can go. That is why it is so important to look at different options and configurations before you make a final decision.
The maximum payload of the 2020 Ford F-150 is affected in much the same way by different trims and options. For example, the XL trim, with the available 5.0L V8 engine and a regular cab can have a maximum payload of up to 3,270 lbs. By comparison, the same trim and engine but with a SuperCrew cab has a maximum payload of up to 2,890 lbs. That is not a huge difference, but if the payload is your primary concern, then it is certainly something to keep in mind when shopping for your truck.
As you would expect, the interior features and options can vary between different trim levels of the 2020 Ford F-150. With that in mind, let us take a look at what you get with the Limited, which is the highest trim of this pickup. This gives you a good sense of the heights of sophistication and luxury that the modern F-150 can reach.
The 2020 Ford F-150 Limited features a twin-panel moonroof if you choose a SuperCrew cab model, and has Limited-exclusive detailing throughout. You get a dual-zone electronic automatic temperature control system, wood interior trim accents, and a heated, leather-wrapped steering wheel. The front seats are heated and ventilated, and both the driver and passenger seats are 10-way power-adjustable for optimal comfort.
Ambient lighting makes the interior of the F-150 come alive at night, and the Limited features rain-sensing wipers and an auto-dimming rearview mirror. There is an 8-inch productivity display in the driver’s dashboard, along with all the necessary gauges and meters. A 10-speaker B&O Premium sound system by Bang & Olufson creates an incredible driving experience, and there are numerous USB and power outlets for connectivity, along with voice-activated navigation and power-adjustable pedals with driver memory.
The 2020 Ford F-150 is one of the safest trucks on the road thanks to a full suite of passive and active safety features designed to protect you and your loved ones. These include great options for trailering such as Pro Trailer Backup Assist, which lets you turn a knob to adjust the direction of your trailer in real-time, and hill descent control that helps you maintain your speed when going downhill. There are also numerous airbags in the F-150, including front and seat-mounted side airbags, as well as safety canopy side curtain airbags.
Additional safety features that are available on the 2020 Ford F-150 include a blind spot information system with cross-traffic alert, which includes trailer coverage for safer lane changing while towing, and auto high-beam headlamps that can sense oncoming traffic and dim to avoid blinding other drivers. There is an available lane-keeping system, as well as a pre-collision assist feature with automatic emergency braking and available adaptive cruise control with stop-and-go. An available 360-degree camera gives you a bird’s eye view of your surroundings that makes it easier to navigate in tight areas and to line up with a trailer.
