The 2020 Ford F-MAX is a heavy-duty cabover (cab over engine) flat-nosed truck used for commercial and industrial applications. Produced by Ford Otosan, a subdivision of the Ford Motor Company in Turkey, the F-MAX was introduced in 2018 as a replacement to the long-running Ford Cargo.

Sold as a “one size fits all” Tractor configuration, the F-MAX comes with a 4×2 axle and powered by the Ford 13.0L Ecotorq (12.7L) diesel straight six engine capable of delivering close to 500 horsepower and 1,843 lb-ft of torque. This engine is mated to a 12-speed ZF Traxon automatic gearbox.

Changes, Updates, New Features

Since the F-MAX was introduced in 2018, it doesn’t undergo many changes for the 2020 model year. Except for a reshuffling of the available trim levels and configurations, the F-MAX Tractor carries over unchanged in 2020.


  • Prominent vertical LED headlights positioned low on the truck’s fascia
  • Large “flat-nose” type windshield for optimal visibility
  • Aerodynamic side profile for maximum efficiency


  • Driver-oriented “cockpit-type” dashboard layout
  • Ergonomic seats that provide superior lumbar support for long drives
  • Integrated rest and storage area with bed

Body Styles

There is only one body style for the 2020 Ford F-MAX called the Tractor series. This body style is designed to accommodate large trailers, with the front section comprised of only the engine, transmission and cabin. The entire front fascia is flat in order to better maneuver the vehicle in tight urban areas.

The F-MAX’s cabin – or as Ford calls it: the 2.5m Mega Cab – is high and narrow, allowing its driving to stand and walk around in it. The cabin also incorporates a small resting area behind the driver and passenger seats. This is designed to allow its driver to nap during long-range trips. The roof also incorporates a large storage area.

The 2020 Ford F-MAX comes in only one configuration, with a unique wheelbase and drivetrain combination.
