    Ford Updates the SuperDuty for 2020

      ...takes multiple 'Best in Class'...

    The 2020 F-Series Super Duty has been updated to take on the most difficult challenges. For 2020 it gets a new available PowerStroke V8 diesel displacing 6.8 liters and producing 475 horsepower and 1,050 lb.-ft of torque. The diesel enables the SuperDuty to tow up to 37,000 lbs on a goodneck trailer, 32,500 lbs. using a 5th wheel trailer, conventional towing of 24,200 lbs., and a payload capacity 7,850 lbs. Power is delivered by an all-new 10-speed automatic. 

    The SuperDuty keeps customers connected with a FordPass Connect embedded 4G LTE modem with Wi-Fi access for up to 10 devices to keep crews in communication no matter where the job might take them. Modern touches include the addition of wireless charging for compatible mobile phones and USB-C ports to power your devices.

    Standard features on XLT and above Super Duty trim levels include Lane-Keeping Alert to help you stay in your lane and Blind Spot Information System with Trailer Coverage to monitor for vehicles in blind spots – even with one next to your trailer. Also standard on XLT and above is Pre-Collision Assist with Automatic Emergency Braking to alert you of potential collisions with vehicles in your path. Should an accident occur, class-exclusive second-row seat belt pretensioners, standard on all Super Duty models, are activated.

    The SuperDuty starts shipping to dealers by the end of the year.

    Jeez, when will this "I have more power and payload capacity and can haul more than you" game end at 2,000 lb.-ft and 50k lbs. GVWR? You need a CDL to operate a truck that's pulling anything over 26k lbs. anyway. Who's going to load almost 8k lbs. in the bed of their pickup, dually or not? That's dangerous if anything, it would need to be a flatbed with side racks to hold the load in place that's most likely going to be stacked pretty high. Wonder if the 1050 lb-ft. is available in the first few gears for this Ford like GM's Duramax 910 lb-ft. is with the new Allison 10 speed? Ram's 1,000 lb. ft. isn't available in 1-3, so what's the point (other than bragging rights) when that's when you need the most torque available to get a heavy load moving. I find it pretty awesome that GM can get from 300 hp 500 lb-ft. when the 6.6L DMax originally came out in 2001 HD's to the current 445 hp 910 lb-ft. L5P where Ford and Ram have had to bore and/or stroke their diesel engines to get more along with other upgrades. I know GM has beefed up the internals and redesigned the fuel delivery as well as having better variable vane turbos in the new 6.6L, but it's a pretty amazing engineering feat all while still having the same 403 CID.

    Interesting...a Super Duty regular cab dually..don't think I've seen one of those in the wild, at least not of the current generation.

    Standard cab long bed dually is the rare configuration that they build to get to the highest GVWR they can. GM builds it as well and it's how they get the new 2020 Silverado Duramax HD to 35,500k GVWR.

    Wouldn't want ANY of that.

    Blind spot monitoring is one of the only ones I've ever left on, that and the Adaptive Cruise Control is pretty sweet, the trailer blind spot would be a good one as well. All the other nannies are too intrusive, especially the emergency auto braking, for instance when you're overtaking a vehicle and briefly let up on the accelerator thinking you saw another car coming from behind and it slams on the brakes thinking you're going to rear end the car in front, first time it did that I shut it off for good. I'm an involved driver that pays attention when driving, I don't even like to be on the phone hands-free and I'm pretty good at multi-tasking.

    Just don't want it. Not necessary / wouldn't use it.
    Wife's car and my son's Sonic both have backup cameras; even my son doesn't use the camera (he's 22). Not every 'just-because-we-can' tech is useful or desirable; not sure why some people assume a feature is unilaterally desired just because it exists... AND everyone should demand it to boot.

    There is ONE thing I think is a great advancement, and that's the 'trailer hitch camera'. Everything else recently trotted out is of no interest, and I've 'dismissed' GM trucks on the lot that have the safety package.

    Everybody is different!

    It's funny because I've had a backup camera on my last few vehicles and I still usually forget. I mostly like to use the mirrors, just natural thinking to look up and out not down at a screen, but the camera does give a nice wide view on my '18 Silverado so it's nice that I can see pretty far down in both directions when backing out of a parking spot in a busy lot.

    '16 Sonic camera is not great. '16 Malibu is much better, but I'm so used to my Silverado's giant mirrors; not only are the mirrors like 4X better, but I get a wider panorama in the Silvie's 2 mirrors (because they're 7 feet apart), as opposed to the Malibu's central, single-lense camera. Camera really does not give you much in the way of a sideways view.
    You just have better / more peripheral vision with your head up & moving, rather than looking down at your dash. It's NOT an improvement in safety (other than a bicycle directly behind you).

      Rumor has it that Ford is working on a V8 powered version of their Ranger Raptor currently sold in overseas markets. Only available in other parts of the world, the current Ranger Raptor is powered by a 2.0-liter 4-cylinder diesel that produces 210 horsepower and 369 lb.-ft of torque, but a report in Wheels magazine says that Ford Australia is working with an external engineering company to swap the 2.0 diesel for a 5.0-liter V8 from the Mustang GT.  The odd thing about this is that the Ranger Raptor 5.0 would be still built with the 2.0-liter diesel under the hood and then later converted to V8 gasoline power.
      Expect power to be about the same as it makes in the Australian spec Mustang GT, a healthy 455 horsepower and 410 lb.-ft of torque. 
      If it all comes together, the Ranger Raptor 5.0 is expected to go on sale in Australia next year, sold by Ford dealers and backed by the full 5-year warranty. For now, the Ranger Raptor remains forbidden fruit to the U.S. no matter what engine is under the hood.

      The first product to come from Ford's investment into startup automaker Rivian will likely be a Lincoln SUV due to arrive sometime in 2022.  The vehicle will be all-wheel drive and compete against Rivian's own R1S which is priced at $72,500.  The models will share Rivian's skateboard platform, a design that combines the motors, batteries, controls and suspension into a single unit that the body can be built around.  
      The Rivian R1S is a three-row EV crossover with a range of up to 410 miles and will be built in Normal Illinois at a former Mitsubishi plant. It is expected to go into production sometime in 2021.
      There will also be a compact Lincoln EV crossover coming for 2021 that could be built on the same platform that the Ford Mustang Mach-E rides on. 
      EV sales have been tepid so far in the US, but Lincoln is banking on the EVs to be bigger sellers in the Chinese market.
