2020 Ford F-600 Super Duty Production Officially Begins

Sponsored

As we reported in early July, the 2020 Ford F-600 Super Duty officially entered production on August 17th, 2020 at the Ford Ohio Assembly Plant in Avon Lake, Ohio after order banks for the F-600 opened back on March 2nd, 2020.

However, as we previously reported, only models powered by Ford’s 7.3L Godzilla V8 will be available at first. The F-600 will be available with Ford’s 6.7L Power Stroke as well, but not until the 2021 model year goes into production in early 2021.

The Godzilla V8 used in the F-600 will be the “Premium tune” version, which means that it makes 350 horsepower at 3,900 rpm and 468 pound-feet of torque at 3,900 rpm. When it arrives, the Ford 6.7L PowerStroke V8 diesel F-600 will be rated at 330 horsepower and 825 pound-feet of torque.

The F-600 is also equipped with Ford’s 10-speed TorqShift automatic transmission, which sends power to either the rear wheels in two-wheel-drive guise, or all four wheels in four-wheel-drive configuration.

The 2020 Ford F-600 Super Duty is geared towards fleet buyers who need a GVWR capacity of the larger and heavier F-650 Medium Duty, but desire the size and maneuverability advantages of the F-550 Super Duty. In other words, the F-600 is a Class-6 truck in a Class-5 package.

As Ford Authority recently learned, the F-600 features upgraded driveline and chassis parts compared to the F-550, on which the F-600 is based, which help increase its GVWR to an impressive 22,000 pounds.

Those upgrades include the F-650’s heavy duty wheels and tires, enhanced brakes, larger and heavier U joints / drive shaft joints, a beefier front axle, and frame reinforcements behind the cab. The new commercial chassis cab model is offered in a single cab option – the Regular Cab.

Originally set to go on sale in the middle of 2020, the 2020 Ford F-600 is launching now with a starting price of $44,695.

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.

    They have the specs on the 2020 stripped chassis on the fleet site.
    I don’t know why they can’t offer the 6.7L
    diesel as an option on those.
