2020 Ford F-Series Offers Best-In-Class Snow Plow Rating with All-New Snow Plow Prep Package


Winter is in full effect, and while many see a snow day in their future, the 2020 Ford F-Series never rests. Now equipped with an available Snow Plow Prep Package, F-Series plow drivers can work through any storm. In fact, the Super Duty prepped with the Snow Plow Prep Package features a maximum 1,400 pound snow plow rating for a best-in-class rating for gasoline powered trucks, and a maximum 1,290 pound rating for a best-in-class rating for diesel powered trucks.

 

“Super Duty is a real workhorse in the snow removal industry,” said Mike Pruitt, Ford F-Series Super Duty chief engineer. “With our new Snow Plow Prep Package, we’re really delivering for folks who clear the way after a big storm. Being able to safely hook up bigger plows means roads, driveways and parking lots are cleared quickly and drivers can move on to the next job.”

 

Snow and Ice Management Association and Wolfworx/Singer Consulting conducted a study that showed snow plowing is currently an $18 billion industry that grows by 3 percent each year in the United States. A 2019 SIMA survey showed that nearly 50 percent of the industry is comprised of Ford F-Series trucks.

 

As the industry grows and Ford continues to increase its presence, the 2020 F-Series has been equipped with features catered to those driving in snowy conditions. The new F-Series includes a windshield wiper de-icer that preheats the windshield under the wipers. F-Series models equipped with the all-new 10-speed heavy-duty Torqshift automatic transmission will also enjoy the Deep Snow/Sand drive mode.

 

Those looking at the all-new F-Series will have their choice from a three-engine lineup with the standard 6.2L gas V8, an available all-new 7.3L gas V8 and an available third-generation 6.7L Power Stroke diesel V8. The 7.3L gas V8 boasts best-in-class 430 horsepower and 475 lb.-ft. of torque, and the 6.7L Power Stroke diesel V8 produces best-in-class 475 horsepower and 1,050 lb.-ft. of torque.
