Ford is no different than other automakers when it comes to updating its vehicles. Blue Oval carmaker will introduce plenty of changes and upgrades in 2020. That includes the upgrades on all of its vehicles in the SUVs, cars and pickup trucks lineup. Whatsoever, Ford will introduce more electrification and advanced driver-assist technology. Even the commercial buyers will be satisfied with new features on some of the models.

For an instance, 2020 F-150 Hybrid pickup truck will offer an onboard generator, which seems to be a smart piece of business from Blue Oval. We will provide you with the latest information about Ford’s upcoming models in 2020. SUVs and pickup trucks are dominating the market, while the car lineup won’t be that much in focus. On the other hand, the future is bright for the Blue Oval kingdom.

What is new for Ford pickup trucks in 2020?

No doubt, Ford’s best-selling vehicle was and it will be the iconic F-150 pickup truck. Besides this model, Ford Ranger is another popular mid-size pickup that will always catch the attention. Interestingly, both models are offering high-performance Raptor versions.  However, the 2020 Ford F-150 won’t offer significant exterior and interior changes. On the other hand, F-150 Hybrid is certain, along with the mentioned F-150 Raptor variant. Regular F-150 will ride on the same 3.3-liter V6 engine that can produce 290 horses and 265 lb-ft of torque. A 5.0-liter EcoBoost V8 will be the optional engine and it will deliver 395 hp and 400 lb-ft of torque. F-150 is a versatile pickup truck and it offers so many special variants and even the diesel model should arrive at some point in 2020. F-150 Diesel will deploy a 3.0-liter V6 turbodiesel and it will tow over 13,000 pounds. According to some rumors the current 3.5-liter V6 powertrain which features 2019
F-150 Raptor
will be replaced with all-new 7.0-liter DOHC V8.

The 2020 Ford Ranger is another model which is making a difference in the markets nowadays. Probably the most famous mid-size pickup truck will introduce a couple of upgrades both in and out. It will arrive with the same 2.3-liter four-cylinder engine that returns 270 horsepower and 310 lb-ft of torque. Ranger Raptor will arrive in the United States as well, but it will be different than the Asian variant. New Ranger Raptor could also introduce a new diesel powertrain that will deliver a class-leading tow rating and mileage figures.

Besides those two models, the 2020 Ford F-250 Super Duty pickup is a heavy-duty model that will bring plenty of changes. A prototype vehicle was spotted recently, and we saw some significant exterior and interior upgrades. However, this model will introduce the biggest upgrades so far, new engine and new transmission.

What is new for Ford SUVs in 2020?

Blue Oval carmaker is also known for its rich lineup of crossovers and SUVs. Whatsoever, you won’t find a carmaker that offers so many upscale SUVs nowadays. In 2020, Ford will surely offer more excitement than ever, especially on the SUV market. The 2020 Ford Expedition recently went through a complete redesign so the new significant upgrades are unlikely. The Expedition will visually stay intact and the interior will get minor refinements only. This full-size SUV will ride on a 3.5-liter V6 turbocharged engine that cranks out 375 hp and 470 lb-ft of torque. On top of that, Expedition Hybrid will arrive at some point next year.

The 2020 Ford Edge is another popular Blue Oval’s SUV. However, just like the Expedition, Edge will also arrive with minor upgrades. It will deploy the same 2.0-liter four-cylinder EcoBoost engine that generates 250 hp and 275 lb-ft of torque. However, one significant change will happen. Edge ST is an all-new high-performance model that will replace the Sport trim level.

The upcoming 2020 Ford Escape will be Blue Oval’s best-selling SUV in 2020. The fourth-gen Escape evolved in one of the best SUVs on the planet. Now, it comes with strong and efficient engines, two four-cylinder units and a hybrid one drivetrain. Escape will introduce plenty of changes. Exterior will suffer a lot, mostly the front part of a vehicle.  This SUV won’t offer 2.5-liter engine anymore and it will offer a new 1.5-liter four-cylinder EcoBoost. This unit is producing 179 hp, while the optional 2.0-liter four-cylinder turbo returns 245 hp and 275 lb-ft of torque.

The all-new 2020 Ford Explorer will arrive with a total redesign. Blue Oval didn’t introduce major changes for Explorer in almost a decade now. The three-row mid-size SUV will hit the roads with the new platform and Explorer Hybrid will become available as well. Visually, Explorer will look like a more aggressive SUV with its long hood, sloping roof, and more pronounced lines. Under the hood, a 2.3-liter four-cylinder turbo engine is creating 290 hp and 255 lb-ft of twists. The hybrid model will burst even more power, up to 340 horses and 310 lb-ft of torque. Explorer ST will be extremely powerful and it will offer over 400 hp. Whatsoever, the hybrid model will be used as a Police Interceptor in the United States.

We saved the best for the end. Blue Oval made a huge splash with the announcement of the 2020 Ford Bronco. The iconic SUV is making a comeback and it will arrive in numerous different versions. Bronco will look to rival Jeep Wrangler in every possible way. For that reason, this body-on-frame SUV will be a 4×4 model that is able to beat the toughest terrains. We can expect a diesel and hybrid variants, along with the Raptor version and the “Baby Bronco” model. Ford will most likely offer both two and four-door versions as well. Powered by EcoBoost engine, Bronco will be rated at 325 horsepower and diesel variant will offer astonishing torque numbers.

What we can expect from the Ford sedans, hatchbacks and minivans?

We’ve already heard the news about Ford’s plan to kill most of its car lineup. All of the models except Mustang will face a discount in the near future. Some of them will most likely survive next year, but Blue Oval is planning to ax all of them before 2022. On the other hand, some of them will be available in Europe and Asia. American soil simply does not have so much room for regular cars as before, and Blue Oval’s plan makes perfect sense. Literally, the whole U.S. market turned its attention to SUVs and pickup trucks.

Besides Mustang, Ford Focus Active will be something closest to the regular transportation car. However, even this model will be available in China and the U.S. variant is still questionable. We can expect some of the cars to be offered next year, for example, 2020 Ford Focus. This model is available in different body styles, such as hatchback, wagon, and sedan. Focus will arrive in four trim levels, ST variant is one of them. The new model will look more stylish than before, but even this model is an uncertain candidate for the future, at least in the United States. When it comes to minivan segment, Ford Transit Connect will most likely survive Ford’s plan and it will be the only minivan offered by the Blue Oval carmaker.
