To show you just how much weight you can tow or load in the bed of this truck and all of the features that help make your drive easier, our team here at Fred Beans Ford of Mechanicsburg made this 2020 Ford F-250 review for you.

Three Powerful Engine Options

With the 2020 F-250, there are three engines you can choose from, each delivering robust strength. The standard 6.2L Flex Fuel V8 engine creates 385 horsepower and 430 lb-ft of torque. Standard with this engine is TorqShift® G 6-speed automatic transmission that has Tow/Haul mode for smooth shifting even when the engine is working harder.  

Also available is the 7.3L V8 engine. This produces 430 horsepower and 475 lb-ft of torque. At its most powerful, the Ford F-250 can generate 475 horsepower and 1,050 lb-ft of torque when equipped with the available 6.7 Powerstroke® V8 Turbo Diesel engine.

With these two available engines you also will have the available TorqShift® 10-speed automatic transmission that features Normal, Tow-Haul, Eco, and Deep Sand/Snow modes.

Towing and Payload Capabilities

With all of that strength provided by each of these engines, the 2020 Ford F-250 is capable of pulling and hauling heavy equipment, tools, and other gear you want to take along with you.

Its conventional towing capacity is able to reach 20,000 pounds. At its maximum, the 2020 F-250 has a towing capacity of 22,800 pounds with 5th wheel/gooseneck towing.

While towing heavy trailers and equipment, the bed of the Ford F-250 can also be loaded up with supplies for the workday or your next home improvement project thanks to a maximum payload capacity of 4,260 pounds.

More Confidence When Towing

When pulling along all of that weight, there are systems and technologies that you can get with your 2020 F-250 that helps make your time towing safer, smoother, and easier.

Trailer Sway Control will help keep your trailer steady while driving and available Trailer Brake Control can help make sure when you need to slow down or stop. Even when towing heavy equipment, you will still be able to do so smoothly and quickly.

The available Blind Spot Information System has Trailer Coverage, which will be able to account for both your truck and trailer when scanning your blind spot. This will give you more confidence when changing lanes.

Then, when you need to back up your trailer to park it or turn around, the available Pro Trailer Backup Assist™ makes this an easy task. All you will need to do is turn the knob the direction you want to go and this system will help guide your trailer that way.
