Pickup truck tow ratings keep going up, up, up.
Now, it’s not even close.
Ford announced on Thursday that the 2020 F-Series Super Duty diesel can tow up to 37,000 pounds with a gooseneck trailer, 32,500 pounds with a fifth-wheel trailer and 24,200 pounds conventionally, all best-in-class marks.
Ford’s updated 6.7-liter Power Stroke V8 is also the torque king with a 1,050 lb-ft rating, taking the title away from the Ram HD, which was the first to break the 1,000 lb-ft barrier.
Ford also revealed that the F-Series Super Duty Tremor off-road model can tow as much as 21,900 pounds with the diesel and has a maximum cargo capacity of 4,210 pounds when equipped with the new gasoline-powered 7.3-liter “Godzilla” V8, both figures besting those of the Ram Power Wagon, it’s 4x4 rival.
Sales of the 2020 F-Series Super Duty are scheduled to begin before the end of this year.
