Ford Motor Company is recalling select 2020 Ford Super Duty vehicles equipped with Ford’s 6.7L Power Stroke diesel due to overstated payload capacity values on the tire and loading information label, overstated accessory reserve capacity values on the safety certification label, and overstated weight values on the truck camper loading documentation.
The defect: affected vehicles display overstated payload capacity values, accessory reserve capacity values, and overstated weight values.
The hazards: If the vehicles are loaded to the payload stated on the tire and loading information label, they may exceed the gross vehicle weight rating or gross axle weight rating. This may result in tire loading beyond rated capacity, suspension overload, and increased stopping distance, which could increase the risk of a crash.
Ford Motor Company is not aware of any accidents or injuries related to this condition.
Components: tire and loading information label, safety certification label, and truck camper loading documentation.
Number of vehicles affected: 11,729 vehicles with:
- 9,979 vehicles in the U.S. and federal territories
- 1,750 in Canada
The fix: Dealers will replace the tire and loading information label, safety certification label and if needed, the truck camper loading document.
Owners should: wait for communications from Ford, which will begin the week of March 22nd.
