One Engine? All the 2020 Ford F-450 Needs!

When you choose a truck with the stature of the Ford F-450, power is guaranteed. While other Ford Super Duty models have varied engine lineups, the F-450 gets all it needs from a 6.7L PowerStroke® V8, the top-tier diesel engine.

With this potent motor under the hood, your truck will deliver 475 horsepower and 1,050 lb-ft of torque. To keep all that power in line, there's a 36,000-psi fuel-injection system, stronger cylinder heads and connectors rods, and forged-steel pistons. Getting you from one gear to the next is an intuitive 10-speed TorqShift® automatic transmission.

With this dynamic duo, the 2020 Ford F-450 delivers robust power in a composed and responsive manner!

Towing and Payload Capacities

It's important to drive a truck with the horsepower and torque you require; however, it's equally important to understand how these outputs can help you during your day-to-day duties. Luckily, the Ford F-450 has incredible towing and payload capabilities to help you get the job done.

No matter the type of towing you prefer, the Ford F-450 will come prepared to the worksite. The maximum conventional towing peaks at 24,200 pounds. The maximum gooseneck towing capacity of 37,000 pounds inspires confidence even on the roughest of jobs too.  

The payload is also impressive, reaching 7,850 pounds when properly equipped. If you're curious, the Ford F-450 flexes all this strength with a max GVWR of 14,000 pounds.

Technology Designed for Your Needs

The Ford F-450 wants to make it easy for you to utilize all its tremendous power. To do this, it offers a range of helpful technology features.

The 10-speed automatic transmission comes armed with four drive modes. With these modes, it's easy to customize the driving dynamics of your Ford F-450. The modes are:

  • Normal
  • Tow-Haul
  • Eco
  • Deep Sand/Snow

With the available Tremor Package, you can also add on a fifth mode: Rock Crawl!

To keep you safe while navigating tight areas in this large truck, the F-450 also comes equipped with advanced safety systems. With the Ford Co-Pilot360™ Technology, you can get assistance from Pre-Collision Assist with Automatic Emergency Braking, BLIS® (Blind Spot Information System) with Trailer Coverage, and Lane-Keeping Alert.

Ready to Battle the Outdoor Elements

As soon as you see the Ford F-450 in person, you can tell that the truck will hold its own over rugged terrain-even on the standard trim. Still, certain drivers may want more off-road capabilities, which can be accomplished with additional packages.

For a go-anywhere performance, choose the FX4 Off Road Package. With this setup, the F-450 comes with Hill Descent Control™, a system that increases stability on slopes. It also provides specially tuned shocks to ensure your ride feels composed over rocks and across dirt roads. Finally, it comes with a transfer case and fuel tank skid plates.

You'll be able to quickly identify Ford F-450 trucks equipped with the FX4 Off Road package because they'll have FX4 Off-Road decals on the side.

If it's not an off-road trail that you want to conquer but a snow-packed driveway or parking lot, then you're in luck. The Ford F-450 also has an available Snow Plow Prep Package!

A Comfortable and Accommodating Cabin

A long day spent working outdoors can be draining. As the sun starts to set, it's nice to settle into a cozy cabin for the ride home. With the Ford F-450, you'll benefit from a range of accommodating and intuitive features.

We'll start with the front seats, which blend comfort with luxury. First, they can be draped in a two-tone limited leather seating surface. The second favorable feature is the 10-way power-adjustable driver's seat with memory. What does this mean for you? Well, as soon as you find the right position, you can set it as the default.

Lastly, the front seats can be heated and cooled. Whether you're working in the blazing sun or the frost-bitten winter, the cabin of your truck will serve as a soothing getaway.

Drivers who are situated in the second row can also enjoy heated seats along with 60/40 flip-up/fold-down bench seats with integrated cupholders.

Entertainment Technology for Lengthy Road Trips

Even though infotainment technology may not be at the top of your must-have list when you're considering a Ford truck, these features certainly go a long way towards improving your commutes to worksites.

Whether you want to make a phone call, pull up your favorite playlist, or listen to a podcast, the SYNC® 3 system will serve as your infotainment hub. This user-friendly system can be paired with an intelligent navigation system, which proves to be helpful when you're trying to locate a nearby gas station, restaurant, or local attraction.

Finally, you have the superb B&O Sound System by Bang & Olufsen. With 10 strategically placed speakers, this premium audio system will boost the clarity and richness of your favorite songs and podcasts.
