2020 Ford F-150 Will Reportedly Come Before 2020 Ford Bronco dug around and discovered a product timeline illustrating that a new 2020 Ford F-150 will come before the highly anticipated 2020 Bronco. They say that Ford plans to introduce new versions of the 2020 Explorer, 2020 F-Series, and 2020 Ford Bronco—in that order.

Just when we thought we wouldn’t have to wait any longer for a modern Ford Bronco, it looks like the timeline has added another vehicle in front of the Bronco. The silver lining is that a new F-150 is coming out much sooner than we thought. Ford has been firm on saying the Bronco is “coming in 2020”, dating back to the 2017 North American International Auto Show in Detroit, so if that remains true, when will the new 2020 Ford F-150 arrive?

It’s anticipated that Ford will storm the 2019 Detroit Auto Show with new and exciting products, as it often does. Aside from the 2020 Mustang GT500, the 2020 Ford Explorer is expected to bow at the show as well. Adding a teaser of the 2020 Ford F-150, or even the 2020 Ford Bronco, would have the Blue Oval dominating the headlines in January.

After all, there are already tons of spy shots of the new Explorer. The question remains then, when exactly will we know more about a new F-150? It should be sooner than later, and with the current competition from RAM and General Motors, it’s not a bad time to spice up the highly competitive truck market with a redesign.

Little is known about the 2020 Ford F-150. A big rumor is that Ford will move away from an aluminum body style, as found with the current-generation F-Series, which still tops the sales charts despite being the oldest of all-three American full sized pickup trucks. Additionally, a Ford F-150 Hybrid has been confirmed, and will be built at the River Rouge, Michigan plant. Crosstown competition should be worried, and Wall Street should enjoy the news of Ford’s next-generation money printing machine.

    Can F150 Diesiel pull 9500# trailer OK In Colorado mountains or should you have a F250 Diesel. I do have F250 but would like to have F150 for ride and size. I am retired pulling airstream trailer.

      Pulling with a heavier truck is always better because they usually have beefier drive train and suspension. All manufacturers try to out do tow ratings with the 150/1500 trucks. They could tow 20k lbs but they won’t last. Like everything else use the 80% rule. If the truck has a 10k lb rating, keep the tow weight to no more than 8k including gear and what’s in the bed.

    I’ve pulled an 11000lb 5th wheel with the 2013 eco boost in Colorado over the mountains with ease. How much and how often would be my criteria. I was on vacation for a few weeks. Doing it every day might shorten life but occasional I would have no hesitation. Newer models have better towing capacity than mine.

      My trailer weighs 8000# empty , so it sounds like I should be all right. Thanks Steve

    I thought I would have more cushion with my 7200# dry 5th but super close on rear axle.
    I was able to shift gear, not carry H2O.
    Too bad Ford not able to give another 200kg on axle. That would be handy given other towing specs.

    “A big rumor is that Ford will move away from an aluminum body style”. So what does that mean? Are they going back to steel again? Or is something else new coming? They took a HUGE gamble going to aluminum and it has definitely paid off and I imagine it cost a lot to do it. What else can they use???
