2020 Super Duty

DURABILITY

DEPENDABILITY FOR TODAY — AND OVER THE LONG HAUL.

You drive a heavy-duty pickup not just for its power and capability. You drive it also because it’s incredibly durable and can withstand the rigorous demands of hauling large loads and pulling huge trailers. That’s why the Ford Super Duty® is designed to work for you over the long haul, whether you use it on the job or for recreation.

BUILT FORD TOUGH® .

Built Ford Tough® isn’t just a slogan. It’s an attitude that has produced America’s premier line of rugged and dependable pickups for 42 straight years.* Success on this high level is achieved by never letting up, never allowing the competition to catch up. One example: Super Duty is the first and only pickup truck in its class with a high-strength, military-grade, aluminum-alloy body and a frame made of more than 95 percent high-strength steel. Super Duty. It’s Built Ford Tough.
*Class is Full-Size Pickups over 8,500 lbs. GVWR.

HIGH-STRENGTH, MILITARY-GRADE, ALUMINUM-ALLOY BODY

The Super Duty® has the only high-strength, military-grade, aluminum-alloy body in its class.* Aluminum alloy is substantially lighter than the previous steel body, yet it’s remarkably strong. It’s also more dent-and-ding resistant and not subject to rust. Use of aluminum alloy allowed some of the weight savings to be reinvested where it matters the most, especially in the frame, that’s the foundation of strength and toughness.

FULLY BOXED HIGH-STRENGTH STEEL FRAME

The fully boxed frame, built of more than 95 percent high-strength steel with up to 10 cross members, is 24 times stiffer than the previous design. The frame is designed to minimize flexing and twisting while maximizing strength and torsional rigidity and serves as the foundation for Super Duty® achieving the highest payload and tow ratings in its class.*
*Max. payload rating of 7,850 lbs. available on F-350, Regular Cab 4x2, 6.2L gas. Class is Full-Sized Pickups over 8,500 lbs. GVWR.

TESTED MORE THAN 19 MILLION MILES

The latest generation of the Ford Super Duty®  was subjected to more than 19 million miles of testing, under real and simulated conditions, at temperatures from -20 to 120 degrees Fahrenheit. Powertrain tests replicated going up a six-degree grade over 500 miles. Super Duty was also subjected to four-post frame twists, gravel, dust, water, brine, mud baths and even intentionally tested with worn or broken parts. Such extreme conditions often went far beyond what you would likely encounter on your toughest of jobs.
