The 2020 Ford f150 is a feature-filled, leather-lined luxury truck that has been the best-selling vehicle in the United States. In 2019, it returns with some deep bench of players. And while its current generation is older than its competitors, this vehicle is still very competitive and a must-drive. A significant part of the truck’s appeal is its compelling lineup of advanced engines. This aluminum-bodied truck is sophisticated in many ways from its diverse trim levels to its ample technology.
This year, this truck from Ford gets minor feature upgrades. The diesel V6 engine is currently available on the XLT and the Lariat has the Ford Ci-Pilot 360 driver assistance technology. The XL gets the STX Sport Appearance package while the Black Appearance package is available on the Lariat and XLT.
Interior and Technology
The interior of the 2020 Ford F-150 ranges in materials and technology throughout its trims. Its general look is made constant with the straight lines and angles retained all the way to the expensive Limited trim. The King Ranch, Raptor, Platinum, and Limited also include special badging inside. Although Ford cannot match the optional 12-inch screen of the Ram, the base XL comes standard with a responsive 8-inch touchscreen running the Sync3 tech interface.
The F-150 is made in three body styles: Regular, SuperCrew, and SuperCab. The SuperCab has an 8-foot bed and is the longest F-150 available on the market that measures 250.5 inches. This means sacrificing interior space, making this option suitable for short trips. Also, the F-150 SuperCab uses annoying clamshell doors instead of the regular front-hinged doors available on rival extended-cab trucks.
Moreover, the SuperCrew has regular doors and offers the most interior space. And as with other full-size pickups, it has an immense back seat. But, the seat does not have the option of reclining. A 6.5-foot bed is the biggest available on the SuperCrew. The Regular Cab also has an 8-foot bed.
Fuel Economy and Performance
The 2020 Ford F0150 has a diverse array of engines. Almost all engines are paired with a 10-speed automatic transmission. The six-speed auto paired with the base 3.3liter V6 that makes 290 horsepower and 265 pound-feet of torque is the exception. Then Ford provides a pair of turbocharged V6s as upgrades. These include the 2.7-liter EcoBoost V6 and the 3.5-liter EcoBoost.
For this year, the vehicle maker still provides the 5.0 liter V8 as an engine upgrade. Thus, those who have traditional truck tastes can still opt for maximum displacement.
