2020 Ford Super Duty F250 Diesel Redesign
As the competition is fierce in the truck market, Ford must make the Super Duty F250 as one of the best trucks on the market. For that, some redesigns for its exterior and interior are expected. While the redesigns will not change the appearance of the F250 significantly, they will give a fitting look for a 2020 heavy-duty truck.
Total redesigns do happen in the truck industry. It happens once in a while. However, the Super Duty F250 lineup is unlikely to get it soon. Expect Ford to play it safe. In other words, the overall look of the 2020 Ford Super Duty F250 will be more or less the same as the 2019 model. It is not a bad thing, though. After all, the Super Duty F250 lineup already has a good look. There is no need to fix something that isn’t broken.
How will the exterior of the upcoming Ford Super Duty look like? We can’t say for sure as the mule is covered. That being said, we can see the shape of the grille is a bit different than the current model, which means the 2020 model is likely to get a brand-new grille. The same goes for the headlights. The headlights appear to be different from the current model’s headlights, so expect changes here, too.
The front end gets some redesigns, what about the rear end? Interestingly enough, the 2020 Super Duty F250’s taillights, tailgate, and tailgate latch look quite similar to F-150’s. There are two possibilities. That is, either the taillights, tailgate, and tailgate latch of the 2020 model are the same as F150’s or they are only inspired by F150’s.
So far, there are only spy shots of the mule. There is no interior shot yet. That being the case, we expect the interior will not be that different from the 2019 model’s interior. There should be redesigns here and there, but it will not change the appearance significantly. There will be good quality materials, decent storage space, and more or less the same comfort level. Of course, these aspects will depend largely on the trim level. The higher the trim level is, the better these aspects will be.
Besides, the 2020 Ford Super Duty F250 should have an updated infotainment system. The truck market, after all, is a fierce competition. Ford could not afford to neglect the Super Duty’s interior and features aspect if it were to keep its share in the market. As with its predecessors, we expect optional features such as driver safety technology, ventilated seating, climate control, sunroof, and a premium audio system.
New Ford F250 Super Duty Gas Engine
A large engine on the brand-new pickup truck, 2020, the Ford Super Duty will get a super-large 7.3-Liter V8 engine. Ford officially announced Brand-new V8 for the F-250 and F350 Superduty lines; this pushrod V8 is the largest displacement engine available in any new pickup truck today.
Ford hasn’t provided the details of the power produced by the new engine. However, they say it should be the strongest engine in its class. The super-duty generation that previously offered a 6.2-liter SOHC V8 385 Horsepower engine. In addition to the Ford F250 7.3-liter V8 Gasoline, Ford still provides 6.7-liter PowerStroke TurboDiesel V8 and 6.2-Liter Gasoline V8.
2020 Ford Super Duty F250 Powerstroke Engine Specs & Towing Capacity
For the engine, Ford claims that the 2020 Super Duty’s engine will be fuel-efficient and more powerful than the 2019 model. Ford didn’t say exactly how much more powerful, though. The current model is already powerful enough. It is a good thing if 2020 will be even more powerful than that.
There will be no 6.8L for the 2020 Super Duty. The iconic Triton V10 engine will not be used to power the heavy-duty truck. Instead, it is likely that the 2020 Ford Super Duty F250 will inherit the 2019 model’s engine. If this is true, then the 2020 mode will be powered by a 7.0L Powerstroke V8 diesel engine.
The engine is quite capable of offering the power a heavy-duty truck needs. It is measured to have up to 7,360 pounds of payload capacity and up to 21,000 towing capacity. This engine should be paired with a 10-speed auto transmission gearbox.

As for the price, while we don’t know exactly how much it will be, we can use the current model’s price as a prediction. The current model’s starting price is in the $33,000 range. The 2020 model should be more or less in the same range, albeit we expect it to increase slightly.
