Expert Rating

Not Available

Unlike other websites and magazines, our ratings are not based solely on a singular road test, but rather a more encompassing batch of criteria: quality, safety, comfort, performance, fuel economy, reliability history and value. When comparing vehicles using our Rating System, it's important to note that the rating earned by each vehicle correlates only to the models within its class. For example, a compact car cannot be compared to a SUV—They are different vehicles altogether.

You can interpret our ratings in the following way:

5-Star: Outstanding vehicle. Only the most exceptional vehicles achieve this rating.

4-Star: Very Good vehicle. Very good and close to being the best vehicle in its class.

3-Star: Good vehicle. Decent, but not quite the best. Often affordable, but lacking key features found in vehicles of the same class.

2-Star: Below average vehicle. Not recommended, and lacking attributes a car buyer would come to expect for the price.

1-Star: Poor vehicle. Simply does not deserve to be on the road.

2020 Ford F-450 Overview

John Diether
Automotive Editor

What's New

The 2020 Ford F-450 Super Duty gets more power from its diesel engine and a new heavy-duty transmission for even greater towing capacity. The redesigned grille and front bumper enhance engine cooling, while the latest LED highlights provide better illumination under load. The rear fascia has been freshened to complement the visual changes in the front.

With the newly available Pro Trailer Backup Assist, drivers can steer a reversing trailer using a knob synced with the rearview camera.

Choosing Your Ford F-450

Like the rest of the Ford F-Series, the F-450 comes in six trims: XL, XLT, Lariat, King Ranch, Platinum, and Limited. Pricing starts at $51,475 including destination for the XL and tops out at $92,125 for the Limited.

The XL and XLT are available with the two-door Regular Cab, with the four-door Crew Cab available for $4,420. The other four trims are only available in Crew Cab form.

Engine Choices

The F-450 comes standard with Ford's brawniest truck engine, the 6.7-liter Power Stroke diesel V8, which now lays down 475 horsepower and 1,050 pound-feet of torque. Dual rear wheels and a 10-speed automatic transmission complete the mechanical setup. The F-450 is rated to tow up to 37,000 pounds, more than any other vehicle in its class.

Four-wheel drive costs $2,765 on the Crew Cab and $3,315 on the Regular Cab. All models are eligible for a FX4 Off-Road Package ($400) with hill descent control, off-road shocks, and underbody skid plates.

Heavy-duty vehicles like the F-450 are exempt from EPA fuel economy testing.

Passenger and Cargo Capacity

The XL and XLT feature a front bench and seating for up to three (Regular Cab) or six (Crew Cab). The Lariat and above have individual front seats, which reduces capacity to five. All models have an 8-foot bed with 78.5 cubic feet of cargo volume.

Safety Features

The XL starts with automatic high beams and a rearview camera. To that, buyers can add automatic emergency braking and forward collision warning ($115) and blind-spot monitoring with rear cross-traffic alert ($540).

These features are standard starting with the XLT, along with lane departure warning. Rear parking sensors are part of the $1,600 XLT Value Package and come standard on trims above it.

Adaptive cruise control is optional on the Lariat ($740) and standard on the King Ranch, Platinum, and Limited.


Ford's SYNC infotainment voice control system is standard on the F-450 XL, along with a seven-speaker sound system (five on the Regular Cab), a built-in wi-fi hot spot, and two front power points. For $450, buyers can upgrade to SYNC 3 with enhanced voice recognition, a touchscreen, and Apple CarPlay and Android Auto compatibility.

The XLT gets SYNC 3 as standard, plus satellite radio and front and rear house-hold style power outlets (front only on the Regular Cab). Navigation is available for $570.

Starting with the Lariat, the F-450 carries a 10-speaker Bang and Olufsen sound system, an 8-inch touchscreen, and two rear power points. Among other features, the Lariat Ultimate Package ($3,495) adds navigation, HD radio, and wireless device charging. These items are standard on the King Ranch, Platinum, and Limited.

Models with those packages in place are eligible for Pro Trailer Backup Assist, priced at $1,600.

The XLT gets everything in the XL's option packages, plus the safety and connectivity upgrades. The XLT Value Package ($1,460) tacks on fog lights, a power driver seat, power adjustable pedals (Crew Cab only), an exterior keypad, and the rear parking sensors.

CarsDirect Tip

The 2020 Ford F-450 XL serves just fine for field work, but the XLT's driver assistance features make it a better companion on the street. Whether to upgrade further is a matter of how much style, luxury, and exclusivity you want in a heavy-duty truck.
