The all-new 2020 Ford Super Duty F-600 Chassis Cab pickup debuted over a year ago at the 2019 Work Truck show in Indianapolis, Indiana. At that time, Ford was quick to point out that the commercial pickup, which slots between the F-550 and F-650, fills a “sweet spot” between the two. Meaning, the mid-sized heavy duty F-600 delivers the capability of a Class 6 truck in a Class 5 package that’s easy to maneuver around the job site.
As we previously reported, the F-600 Chassis Cab will initially be available with Ford’s 7.3L Godzilla V8, which produces 350 horsepower and 468 pound-feet of torque in “Premium Tune” form. We later learned that the F-600 will also be available with Ford’s 6.7L Power Stroke diesel, but not until 2021. The F-600 is also equipped with a 10-speed TorqShift automatic transmission with available live drive power takeoff that provides up to a class-leading 300 pound-feet of torque. Now, we have details regarding the F-600’s standard and optional features and packages.
On the inside, the F-600 comes with six factory-installed auxiliary upfitter switches – two 40 amp switches that work with the ignition on or off, and four 25 amp switches that provide power with the ignition on. Those switches, along with fuses and associated relays, are located in the overhead console/storage compartment.
The 2020 Ford Super Duty Chassis Cab also comes with Ford’s AdvanceTrac with Roll Stability Control (RSC) and trailer sway control, which use gyroscopic sensors to apply a combination of reduced engine power and selective wheel braking to help maintain control of the truck and the trailer while towing.
Ford offers a host of available options for the F-600, including dual alternators and/or batteries, an engine block heater, programmable engine idle shutdown, an aft-axle frame extension, and integrated trailer brake controller. The truck comes with 19.5 inch Argent Steel painted wheels and 245/70Rx19.5G BSW A/P tires, but is also available with stainless steel wheel covers and 245/70Rx19.5 BSW Traction tires.
On the outside, the F-600 comes standard with a black painted steel front bumper, black lower air dam, quad dual-beam halogen headlights, black door handles, a black bar-style grille, manual telescoping trailer tow mirrors, LED roof marker clearance lights, black tow hooks, and front mud flaps.
Exterior options include a chrome steel front bumper, platform running boards, fog lamps, a chrome bar-style grille, power heated glass side tow mirrors, and a Utility Lighting System with LED side mirror spotlights.
The F-600 can be equipped with a variety of option packages, including the XL Value Package, XL Decor Group (fleet only), Power Equipment Group, Ambulance Prep Package (fleet only), Low Deflection Spacer, CNG/Propane Gaseous Engine Prep Package, and Advanced Security Pack, which includes SecuriLock Passive Anti-Theft System (PATS) and Inclusion / Intrusion Sensors.
The F-600 XL starts out at $44,555, while the F-600 XLT has a base price of $49,170.
