Here is a 2020 Ford Super Duty prototype caught in the wild by Joe S. The new 2020 Chevy HD and 2019 Ram HD have been making lots of news lately, but we all know that Ford is also working on updates for their heavy duty trucks. This exhaust on this prototype suggests this may be a gas-powered truck.
Ford has not officially announced any specifications for the upcoming Super Duty trucks, but we do know that it will potentially be revealed before the we see the new Ford Bronco, and that production 2020 SD trucks should roll off the factory line in November 2019.
However, unconfirmed reports suggest that it will be powered by a new 7.3L V8 gas engine that should offer a big boost to the power and torque ratings of the current 6.2L gas V8. HD truck manufacturers are not abandoning big gas V8 engines yet.
Let us know your guesses (in the comments below) on how much power and torque the new gas V8 engine might produce.
There are other reports that suggest that the 2020 Super Duty trucks will offer a heavy duty version of the 10-speed automatic transmission. GM announced that they plan to offer an Allison-branded 10-speed automatic transmission in the upcoming 2020 Chevy HD trucks.
If you are wondering how the current HD trucks compare? Here are the “big three” dually trucks towing over 22,000 lbs up and down the Ike Gauntlet – world’s toughest towing test.
