We know that Ford is taking the new 7.3-liter gas-powered engine called “Godzilla” and cramming it inside its Super Duty pickups. The company is also cramming that big V8 into its Super Duty Chassis Cab, and it gives the vehicle best in class gas-torque rating of 468 foot-pounds and a horsepower rating of 350 horsepower. The Super Duty Chassis Cab is a truck that is built for heavy upfit equipment and industry demands.
The truck is rated for a maximum payload of 12,750 pounds. Buyers can also opt for the 6.7-liter Power Stroke diesel V8 engine that makes 330 horsepower and 825 pound-feet of torque. Ford says that the 7.3-liter gas V8 is built with commercial durability in mind and delivers its peak horsepower and torque at 3,900 rpm.
The 2020 Ford Super Duty Chassis Cab will use Ford’s Heavy Duty 10-speed automatic no matter which engine is chosen. Ford says that the truck has an available programmable upfitter interface module and flat underseat storage. Ford’s Super Duty Chassis Cabs are number one in commercial truck class 2-5 registration with 65.6 percent total share of the U.S. market.
The trucks will be offered with Ford Telematics and Data Services to help commercial customers operate their fleets more efficiently. Chassis Cab trucks also come with PreCollision Assist with Automated Emergency Braking and Audible Lane Departure Warning. Ford says that the trucks are available today, with the all-new Ford F-600 Super Duty Chassis cab that slots between the F-550 and F-650 available to order later in 2020. The F-600 is aimed at buyers needing additional payload or the ability to mount heavier upfits without moving to a larger truck.
