Ford Claims Top Plowing Rating
The available Snow Plow Prep Package F-Series Super Duty delivers a claimed best-in-class.
The 2020 Ford F-Series Super Duty will tackle winter’s worst weather with the claimed heaviest snow plow rating in the segment.
With the available Snow Plow Prep Package, Super Duty features a maximum 1,400 lb snow plow rating accounting for mounting hardware, which is best-in-class for gasoline-powered trucks in the segment1, and maximum 1,290 lb which is also best-in-class for the diesel segment2.
The new Snow Plow Prep Package, available for 4×4 pickups, includes heavy-duty springs specific to each configuration and an up-rated alternator to deal with heavy electrical loads.
Owners will also appreciate other new features such as a windshield wiper de-icer, which pre-heats the windshield under the wipers to keep blades free of ice, as well as available heated steering wheel and heated front and rear seats.
Optional white or amber LED strobe lights on XL, XLT or Lariat series trucks take a step out of the upfitting process. Deep Snow/Sand drive mode is available on models equipped with the all-new 10-speed heavy-duty TorqShift® automatic transmission.
The special drive mode changes throttle mapping and traction control settings to allow for added control and greater confidence in snowy or slick conditions.
Plow operators can rely on the quality and craftsmanship of a high-strength steel boxed frame and high-strength, military-grade, aluminum-alloy body that provide a sturdy backbone.
Customers have a choice of engines, including a standard 6.2-litre gasoline V8, an available all-new 7.3-litre gasoline V8 with claimed best-in-class 430 hp and 475 lb/ft of torque and an available third-generation 6.7-litre Power Stroke diesel V8 with claimed best-in-class 475 hp and 1,050 lb/ft of torque.
