What’s new for the 2020 Ford F-150?

Advanced driver safety aids – including blind spot monitoring – are now grouped into packages, making it easier to choose the features you want. There are also new appearance packages for the XL, XLT, and Lariat models, so you don’t have to spend a lot to cruise around in a stylish truck.
How much can the 2020 Ford F-150 tow and haul?
Depending on equipment, this full-size truck can tow class-leading loads of up to 13,200 pounds. It’s pretty capable on the hauling front, too, moving max payloads of up to 3,270 pounds. You won’t find a more capable truck in this segment.
What are the 2020 Ford F-150 configurations?
This full-size truck is highly configurable. First, choose from six main trim levels: XL, XLT, Lariat, King Ranch, Platinum, and Limited. These range from work-ready to downright luxurious. Three cabin options – regular, extended SuperCab, and SuperCrew – are available to suit your passenger-hauling requirements. Then there are three bed lengths, with availability depending on cabin style.
Every F-150 trim model comes standard with forward collision warning with automatic emergency braking. With the XLT and up, you’ll enjoy complete smartphone integration, complements of Apple CarPlay, Android Auto, and Ford’s Sync 3 infotainment system. The Lariat and up feature Ford’s Co-Pilot360 bundle of driver safety aids, which includes blind-spot and lane-departure warning systems.
What are the 2020 Ford F-150 engine options?
At the heftier end of the F-150 engine spectrum, you’ll find even more to like. Drivers who crave classic V8 performance can select the 5.0-liter V8 engine, a beast that pumps out 395 horses and 400 pound-feet of torque. This engine will help you haul those max payloads.
To help you tow max loads, you’re going to need the 3.5-liter turbocharged V6. This is the F-150’s most powerful engine; it generates either 375 horses and 470 pound-feet of torque or 450 horses and 510 pound-feet of torque, depending on configuration.
