Shopping for pickup trucks is fun. You get to choose from different trim levels, bed sizes, power outputs, accessories, packages, and more. In the end, you build a truck that fits your exact needs for work or leisure around Niagara Falls, Buffalo, and Grand Island.

The Ford F-150 is a common place for truck shoppers to begin their search. To make research easy, our team at Basil Ford of Niagara Falls has developed a 2020 Ford F-150 review. You won't have to leave this page to learn about the towing capacity, payload, engine specifications, or off-roading capability of the 2020 F-150!

Capability to Serve All Drivers


You can't call yourself a capable pickup truck without having impressive towing and payload figures. As expected, the 2020 Ford F-150 debuted with the type of elite capability that has made it such an acclaimed model for so long.

The maximum towing capacity, when properly equipped, is a tremendous 13,200 pounds. That means easy sledding when it's time to take the boat up to the cabin for a weekend.

There's also the matter of payload, which measures 3,270 pounds at its peak. If a project around the house springs up, the F-150 will be more than ready.

Performance: Horsepower, Torque, Transmission

Choosing the engine you want to power your 2020 Ford F-150 is an enjoyable process because there are 6 different options, and each one offers ample power. The towing capacity of the Ford F-150 is also determined by the engine you choose!

For instance, there's a 3.3L V6 with the ability to churn out 290 horsepower and 265 lb-ft of torque. There's also a 2.7L V7 that produces 325 horsepower and 400 lb-ft of torque.

At the top of the pecking order would be the 3.5L High-Output V6, which generates 450 horsepower and 510 lb-ft of torque.

Other engines include:

  • 5.0L V8
  • 3.5L EcoBoost® V6
  • 3.0L Power Stroke® V6

Once you've settled on the right motor, choosing the transmission is next. A 6-speed automatic and a 10-speed automatic are the two options.

Move Across any Terrain with Confidence

Perhaps an upcoming worksite requires some off-road travel, or maybe you just like exploring the wilderness during long weekends. No matter your reason for travelling off-road, the Ford F-150 will prove to be a fun and reliable companion during each exploration.

To get the most out of the truck, you'll likely want to opt for the FX4 Off-Road Package, which includes:

  • Electronic-locking rear differential
  • Hill Descent Control™
  • Off-road tuned shock absorbers
  • Skid plates

For the truly devoted, there's the Ford Raptor trim level. If you decide to go for this no-nonsense trim, features such as BFGoodrich® All Terrain KO2 tires, bead lock-capable wheels, and a Torque-On-Demand transfer case will be included.

In Review: the 2020 Ford F-150

Many of the features you likely expect of the Ford F-150 can be seen in the 2020 edition. The truck is highly capable, as versatile as always, and can handle the most demanding off-roading trails around Buffalo, Grand Island, and Niagara Falls.
