If all we have heard about 2020 Ford F-150 is true, the new era in the heavy-load truck is coming. The reason is planned replacements of the current petrol engines with electric and hybrid ones, meaning that all new series of the trucks could be driven by combining of petrol and electric units. Since Ford already announced that its Bronco and even Mustang Shelby GT500 gets the hybrid unit, we have a lot of reasons to believe them in this amazing news. When talked about this possibility, they in Ford compared heavy trucks with the sporty cars which already took their parts in replacing of the engines with the hybrid ones, while classic electric sporty cars manufacturers, like Tesla, are planning to offer trucks.
There are no planned or announced changes in the design of 2020 Ford F-150, at least for now. If a hybrid engine take a place under the hood that could change the shape of the car and cargo space, but that is still on designer’s tables for now.
There are some clues about the equipment that the manufacturer offers in new 2020 Ford F-150. First of all, there should be Co-Pilot 30 Suite that is a part of the driving assistant unit in the cabin of the new Fords, and includes very helpful and improved devices like automatic emergency braking, a blind spot warning system, lane keeping assist, a rearview camera and automatic high-beam headlights. This model has always been known to large and comfortable cabins, with wide dashboards and a large touchscreen in the middle.
Even the engine that manufacturer is planning to offer in 2020 Ford F-150, they still have not précised which of them will actually be under the hood of this car. It is expected that petrol unit could be one of the V8 versions, or maybe a current 3.5-liter V6 Eco Boost one. This engine already showed great fuel economy numbers with impressive 450 horsepower and 510 pound-feet of torque, so combining with the electric model could only be a good decision for future buyers. However, other information says that we should expect a brand new electric model, that any old truck used by now, since they in Ford are working on designing of completely new series of the engines for the future.
