With today’s full-size pickup trucks, the term “light-duty” should be stricken from our vocabularies. The Ford F-150, the “light-duty” member for the Ford F-Series lineup, boasts tow ratings of up to 13,200 pounds and payload capacities of up to 3,270 pounds. That’s just about what you could get from the Ford F-250 Super Duty when the company debuted the “Super Duty” name in 1999.
Still, when you need to handle an even mightier load, or when you’d rather risk overkill than risk overworking a smaller truck, the current Super Duty lineup is stronger than ever. The 2020 Ford F-250 Super Duty is freshly updated with upgraded powertrains, new technology, and, of course, mightier specs than ever. It’s the entry level to the Super Duty lineup, known as a three-quarter-ton pickup, and that’s already more than enough to trounce the F-150 — and, in many ways, the competition. Prices start at $33,705 for a base-model work truck and surpass $90,000 with all the options. Let’s go over what you get for that money to see whether this mighty truck is for you.
