When will the 2020 Ford Superduty trucks be out

It is already the very end of the year. I expected the new Fords to be out and in dealer lots by now.

Anyone know of issues/problems Ford is having getting the new model ready? What are the delays?

I havent heard anything at all. I wonder if 19s are still being produced. I cant see the assembly line sitting idle and ford losing all that money when they can still be building 19s.

I live where they are made. There are trucks sitting in lots waiting to be shipped. One lot has been cleared and is filling up again. So they're getting shipped now.

That is great news - thanks for that update.

I can't wait to see the 2020 F-350 SRW with the 7.3 gas engine and it's payload.

I'm guessing mid January, based upon a TFL truck video where Andre said he wasn't allowed to talk about the driving experience of a 2020 Tremor till then.

I'll say, Merry Christmas to you. You lucky dog. Try not to smile too much. That looks like a very official notification.

Thanks for sharing.

Can't wait!! Once your ordered vehicle is assigned a VIN you can go to Ford.com and track your build. Been checking every day and finally got a delivery date this morning. Just hoping things stay on schedule.

Dealers have them on the lots around here. They haven't been in production but about 3 or 4 weeks so it is going to take some time to hit all the lots.

I worked as a software engineer for a Honda plant when they introduced a new model. There are growing pains on any new model. Target was to build 1,500 cars a day but only built 1,200 - 1,300 a day while I was there. Good to hear Ford seems to be ramping up production.

I saw that TFL can not talk about the truck they got until mid Jan...anyone know what is up with that if trucks are on dealer lots now?

Job #1 was definitely in November.

The 2020 is virtually a "carry over" except for the all new 7.3L gas engine and 10 speed transmission.

A few things that jump out at me when I compare the new 2020 GM 2500HD 6.6 gas vs my 2017 F-250 6.2 gas.

GM has a 2,000lb factory hitch weight my F-250 only has a 1,500lb factory hitch weight. (Max tongue weight).

The GM drove a tiny bit nicer than my current truck. Must be the independent front suspension.

The GM truck had a bit more powerful engine.

My F-250 still had more payload by a few hundred lbs.

My F-250 still had a longer wheelbase by a little bit.

So, is it the general opinion that there is no changes to the frame or wheelbase?

On the fords? I would be really suprised if they change anything about the trucks 3 years into a run as far as the frame, body, and running gear goes. Putting in a different engine is way easier than stretching a wheelbase. The bed alone probably has......a dozen sets of dies that would need changed to move the rear end at all. I think dies were around a million a piece when i was at fisher body, and ivery single panel probably has at least 4 dies, so a dozen panels with 4 dies per panel would be a good guess of at least 40 individual dies for one bed type. Theyve GOT to get their moneys worth out of those things.

Beast of a gasser

Ordered a 350 srw 7.3 4wd short bed with 4:30 gears. Have been pulling with a V10, 4:30 that I bought new in 2001. Never had an issue with the 2001 and expect the new one to be even better.
