2020 Ford F150 Concept Design
Ford F150 Concept Design – Remember the old days when a design was expected to carry pickup truck models for nearly a decade? Well, that’s ancient history. With truck sales continuing to surpass passenger vehicles-Ford sold more than 820,000 F-series trucks by 2016, more than double the sales of Toyota Camry, the best-selling passenger car manufacturer has an interest in keeping the truck fresh. That means a shorter life cycle with lots of updates in between.
Ford does not take risks with aluminum cow cash. Just three short years after the new Ford F-150 debuted at the Detroit 2014 auto show, the automaker has given its styling once and updated powertrains, including adding diesel to the menu for the first time.
Ford reaffirmed its promise of a powerful hybrid pickup truck with the recent announcement of the Ford F-150 Hybrid, which should reach the market by 2020. Specs are still scarce. We do not know exactly which powertrain combination to use the F-150 Hybrid.
Ford said that the F-150 electric aircraft will be built at their Dearborn Truck Plant, it will offer “strong pulling and load capacity”, and will be able to operate as a moving generator. Ford plans to sell the F-150 Hybrid in North America and the Middle East.

2020 Ford F150 Engine
Looking at the average annual mileage of 12,000 miles, the EcoBoost 3.5L V6 will use around 522 gallons while the 5.0L V8 uses 571 gallons (49-gallon difference). With gas prices hovering around $ 2.35 per gallon nationally according to the official website, we can find consumers will save $ 115.19 a year to drive EcoBoost.
This means the consumer’s breakeven point is about 9.5 years. The average pickup possession is less than that and yet, EcoBoost is the best selling machine for the F-150. I mean here being a consumer is not visible in the long run, they see the advantages of short-term fuel economy.
The considerable attention has been focused on the F-150 powertrain product lineup. A newly injected 3.3-liter V-6 engine immediately replaces the previous 3.5-liter V-6 and is expected to produce the same 282 hp power and 253 lb-ft of torque as the previous engine but consumes less fuel.
EcoBoost 2.7-liter V-6 gets some love too; the unit is currently replaced with a new second-generation version with direct injection port technology (2.7 previously only direct injection).
The 3.5-liter EcoBoost V-6 continues for 2018, and the revised 5.0-liter V-8, with expected horsepower and torque improvements. Ford, however, has not released a specific output number for this machine.
The company said that both the EcoBoost V-6s and V-8 will be paired with a 10-speed automatic transmission, and auto stop/start is standard in the lineup.
2020 Ford F150 Concept Specs
2020 Ford F150 joined several other companies to encourage the electrification of trucks. The concept of half-truck Nikola One and Chevy Colorado ZH2 concept target fuel cell technology for the pure electric drive. The W-15 concept of this hard worker targets a pickup truck electric plug-in, with a gasoline engine that provides electricity for long distances.
All of these concepts also offer features of mobile electric generators. Consider turning on your workplace, your home, or your campsite using your pickup. Tesla is reportedly working on an all-electric pickup truck.
Ford did not mention that the 2020 F-150 will be a plug-in Hybrid. This probably means that the F-150 will use a combustion engine and an electric motor to drive the truck. In other words, the truck will not be able to travel long distances with its own power or lift/lift the maximum load solely on electric power.
On the other hand, GM, Ford and Ram offer (or plan on offering) a choice of turbo-diesel engines in their half-ton or intermediate pickup trucks. Ram has sold 3.0L V6 EcoDiesel for several years. GM offers 2.8L I4 turbo-diesel in Chevy Colorado and GMC Canyon.

In addition to the 2020 Ford F150 Concept, Ford also plans to offer a Mustang hybrid, two new hybrid police vehicles, hybrid plug-in transit vans, hybrid autonomous cars, and six yet unrevealed electric vehicles. By 2020, the company targets 40% of its fleet to be powered.
To achieve this, the company invested a total of $ 4.5 billion in electric vehicle technology.
Several key exterior styling tweaks run through the entire lineup, from the XL base to the top-trim Limited. New grille and headlights evolved to look a few steps closer to the twin-bar motifs of the Super Duty brothers.
The twin grille bars on the F-150 Lariats equipped with the Sports package receive body-color treatments. Behind the new taillamps, a bracket is a sculpted truck with the F-150 logo on it. The King Ranch, Platinum, and Limited get a new horizontal appliqué in the tailgate for a touch of exclusivity.
Interior revisions include a pair of new trim colors for the seat. The F-150 Platinum offers a choice of Dark Marsala colors, and High-cut trim dogs see the arrival of the Navy Pier color theme. Sports Sport and Lariat Sports traders can specify faux-carbon-fiber apps, and King Ranch gets a special seat called Kingsville, whose voice matches the king.
The choice of technology and infotainment options bumper joins the list of F-150 options that are already abundant. The adaptive cruise controls have been upgraded and can now bring the truck to a complete halt in heavy traffic, a new collision detection system including pedestrian detection, the available WiFi 4G LTE hotspot lets users connect up to 10 wireless devices.
And Bang & Olufsen audio system handles entertainment needs. Blind point monitoring, line-keeping, 360-degree cameras, and Apple CarPlay and Android Auto all remain on the options list.
But while the exterior adopts the Super Duty appearance and adds an extraordinary dose of adjustment, the cabin does not fall into the trap of being too rough or uncomfortable.
Actually, whirling behind the wheel of Ford F150 Concept 2020 Limited-its how I spent most of my day testing-furthers the idea that some American pickup trucks can stand toe-to-toe with traditional music. luxury sedan and crossover.
