Anyone have a 2020 yet (gas or diesel), or towed with one yet?

They are just hitting the dealers so probably not many yet. Join the Ford Truck Enthusiasts Forum, 2017+Super Duty (ford-truck.com/forums/forum279) and you might get more information. It's a pretty active forum and a few have had their ordered 7.3's delivered. I haven't seen any reports of anyone towing anything yet with either the 7.3 or the newly upgraded 6.7 diesel. Initial reports are good on both.

A friend of mine test drove a 2020 model F-450 diesel, and told me he could tell a pretty significant difference in it versus his 2017 F-450 set up the same way. He said it's a hoss, and it has a little different sound to it when idling, he said a more noticeable lop to it, versus the previous. He was very impressed with the overall performance. I have yet to test drive one, but hope to soon. We have quite a few diesels showing up on our local dealers lots, but no big gasser's yet. You look like you have one coming, how is it speced out, obviously a diesel, single rear wheel, long bed, 4wd, it looks like from your signature. What all will you tow? Sounds like a nice rig!

Is the 7.3 an available option on the F450 King Ranch pickup? If it is, I couldn’t figure out how to change it from the Diesel engine it defaults to.

It looks like the 7.3 will only be available in the chassis cab in the F-450...if I am reading this correctly. I don't think Ford makes the chassis cab in anything higher than an XLT trim:

I pick mine up in the morning. It is being delivered to the dealer this afternoon. Besides the 4X4 Platinum, diesel, long bed it will have the 3.31 e locker, bed spray, 5th wheel prep, upfitter switches, customer installed trailer camera, block heater, rapid heat with 397 alternator, cab lights, and fitted floor mats. It will pull our fifth wheel and bass boat, not at the same time. We are looking at maybe downsizing our fifth wheel in the next year.

Thanks. That’s disappointing though. Hopefully it will be an option in later model years. I still like the other options that are available on the F450, like the wide track front axle, 19.5’s, and one of those e-locker axles would be awesome. I’m not ready for a new truck though, so I can wait. Give that 7.3 a few model years to mature.

I’m really liking these new ‘20 Super Duty’s and yes I’m also hearing the 6.7 PSD feels really strong but I haven’t heard anything on the 7.3 yet

I wonder if Ford has fixed the death wobble on the new 2020. Over on the IRV2 site there's a thread about Fords death wobble and the TSB thats out. Looks like a band-aide fix coming Jan.
