Ford introducing integrated winch for 2020 F-Series Super Duty pickup trucks
The winch is offered for both Tremor gas and diesel trucks
It's a Ford F-Series Super Duty first – the 2020 model will be available with an integrated electric winch that offers 12,000 pounds of winching power. The winch will be available as a factory-orderable option or a dealer-installed after-sale accessory for both gas and diesel-powered Super Duty Tremor pickups.
Developed with both crash safety and capability top of mind, the fully integrated winch is mounted behind the steel bumper, providing optimized airflow and clearance regardless of engine choice. Customers who select the winch can rely on high-tensile-strength, abrasion-resistant synthetic cable to drag almost any rig out of the muck or over an obstacle, or to move trail-clogging barricades like fallen trees. It includes the only wireless remote control in its class along with a provision for wired remote control.
The 2020 Super Duty with available Tremor Off-Road Package has maximum towing of 15,000 pounds for conventional trailers and up to 21,900 pounds for goose neck trailers with the available diesel. It also has up to 4,210 pounds maximum payload capacity with the all-new available 7.3-litre gas engine.
The Tremor Off-Road Package is available for XLT, Lariat, King Ranch and Platinum F-250 and F-350 Super Duty trucks with available all-new 7.3-litre gas V8 or third-generation 6.7-litre Power Stroke diesel V8.

Industries such as construction, mining, energy, utilities and forestry, face many challenges when it comes to tracking assets and employees. Equipment often has to be transferred between locations, or monitored while it is dormant during off seasons. Lone workers may have to travel long distances or visit multiple sites during the course of their activities. And, all of this is further complicated today with shifting supply chains and economic realities putting further strain on the bottom line.
