When it comes to heavy-duty commercial trucks, locating the exact features and specifications you're curious about can be a thoughtful process. At Richmond Commercial Truck Center, we want to help you quickly learn about any vehicle you're interested in.

On this page, you'll find links to various reviews and other in-depth resources for the hearty Ford F-550. After learning about the features, specifications, and customizable options for this truck, you can speak with our staff about a test drive or just to answer any questions!

Standard and Optional Engine

You can go one of two ways when selecting the performance setup for your 2020 Ford F-550. There's a standard V8 motor settled into the truck or an optional diesel V8. Either choice will deliver superb strength, so it's more about personal preference.

The standard 7.3L V8 generates 350 horsepower and 468 lb-ft of torque. Step up to the 6.7L diesel V8, and you can expect 330 horsepower and 825 lb-ft of torque. A hearty 10-speed automatic transmission with SelectShift® and TorqShift® capabilities is a worthwhile inclusion, given how much power this commercial truck is putting down.

Maximum Towing and Payload

Just from the specifications of the engines, it's clear the Ford F-550 means business. So, how does all that power translate to real-world performance? The best way to determine capability is by looking at two staples of any truck: towing capacity and payload.

For the Ford F-550, a maximum payload figure of 12,750 pounds inspires confidence. The maximum conventional towing capacity peaks at 18,500 pounds when properly equipped. There are still other ways you can use your F-550 to tow, though. For example, the maximum fifth-wheel gooseneck towing for this Ford commercial truck measures 31,600 pounds!

Customizations Galore

Every business is different, having unique needs and myriad jobs waiting to be accomplished. Ford wants to ensure your commercial truck, such as the Ford F-550, is perfectly suited to what your business does. To help, the F-550 comes in three trim levels and offers a host of packages and accessories.

The base trim is called the XL, while the following two trims are called the XLT and the Lariat. This specific trim trio falls in line with other Ford commercial trucks, such as the F-350 and F-450, which each offer XL, XLT, and Lariat options, too.

The packages are where you can really hone in on the proper vehicle. A few favorites include the LARIAT Value Package, the Heavy Service Front Suspension Package, and the Extra Heavy Service Suspension Package.

Others include:

  • High-Capacity Trailer Tow Package
  • Snow Plow Prep Package
  • Payload Downgrade Package
