2020 Ford F-600 Super Duty Goes Into Production This August At The Ford Ohio Assembly Plant

Sponsored

It might seem like half of 2020 is already over, because, well, it is. But that doesn’t mean that all 2020 model year vehicles have necessarily gone into production, however. In fact, Ford Authority has learned that the 2020 Ford F-600 is scheduled to go into production on August 17th, 2020 at the Ford Ohio Assembly Plant after order banks for the F-600 opened back on March 2th, 2020.

The F-600 is a commercial vehicle with the capability of a Medium Duty F-650, but in the body of a Super Duty. According to Ford, the F-600 fills the “sweet spot” between the F-550 and F-650. The body and chassis are the same size as an F-550, but the F-600 uses a beefier driveline and some other more robust chassis components that give it a higher GVWR. It also gets higher-weight-rated 19.5 inch tires and wheels.

The F-600 delivers the capability of a Class 6 truck, including a maximum GVWR of 22,000 pounds, in a familiar and easy-to-manage Class 5 Super Duty package. It’s powered by Ford’s 7.3L Godzilla V8, which is mated to a 10-speed TorqShift automatic transmission with available live drive power takeoff that provides up to a class-leading 300 pound-feet of torque.

The 2020 Ford F-600 offers an array of driver-assist technology including available automatic emergency braking which can help drivers avoid or mitigate collisions, auto high beam headlamps, and available lane departure warning.

The F-600 also features a standard modem with 4G LTE Wi-Fi for up to 10 devices, along with available Ford Telematics and Ford Data Services, which enable fleet managers to enhance uptime and asset utilization, optimize running costs, improve driver behavior, and protect their fleets using Ford OEM-grade telematics software, integrating with the company’s existing telematics service provider, or taking vehicle data directly into their own IT systems.

Brett's lost track of all the Fords he's owned over the years and how much he's spent modifying them, but his current money pits include an S550 Mustang and 13th gen F-150.

    Beefier driveline and some other more robust chassis components. Could you please go into more details about the components and driveline?

    No 6.7L Powerstroke? What gives, when the F-600 was announced the Powerstroke was supposed to have been available.

    I ordered a 2021 Ford F-600 XL 4X2 7.3L V8 chassis-cab on October 14, 2020.
    The PO I sent to my bank for loan approval has a VIN and stock number.
    The dealer told my bank that my F-600 would start manufacturer around mid November and be delivered around mid-December.
    Does this situation line-up with what you know?
