With the goal of expanding its commercial vehicle range and ensuring its dominance in the segment, Ford will launch a new variant of its Super Duty Series in 2020, named the F-600. Until recently, the range of Ford Super Duty pickup trucks stopped at the F-550 before moving to the two-ton trucks of the F-650 and F-750 series. According to Ford, its customers were left with some problems when bringing them into narrow or muddy paths. Think, for example, of the maintenance trucks of the Hydro-Québec workers who have to repair an electric pestle at a remote location. A two-ton truck is sometimes too big and awkward for such a location. Also, when it comes time to add pods and small cranes top the F-550 pickups, they are sometimes unable to support the weight of all the accessories. As a reminder, the current gross weight (GWP) of the current Ford Super Duty F-550 is 19,500 pounds (8,845 kg). The F-650 is rated at 25,999 lbs (11,792 kg). Listening to the market's demands, Ford found an opportunity to satisfy its customers and the result is the new F-600. This new machine is essentially identical to the F-550 in term of mechanical, but only available as chassis-cab configuration. The chassis and tires were reinforced, giving it a 22,000 lb (9,979 kg) net weight, making it a sturdier commercial truck than its rivals in the same segment. Available with a four-wheel drive or rear-wheel drive, the 2020 Ford F-600 will be powered by the same powertrains as the rest of the Super Duty 2020 series, ie a 6.7-liter V8 turbodiesel or a brand new 7.3-liter gas V8 engine. No technical data has yet been released on these two engines, but they will be paired with a new 10-speed automatic transmission. Like the rest of the Ford Super Duty lineup, the new F-600 will be on sale next fall. Technical specifications, such as power, torque, and towing capacity, will be available a few months before its release.
