And that’s not all… this bad boy also has awesome features to conquer bad weather like optional windshield wiper deicer, heated steering wheel and heated front and rear seats! The new Snow Plow Prep Package, available for 4×4 pickups, includes heavy-duty springs specific to each configuration and an up-rated alternator to deal with heavy electrical loads.

“Super Duty is a real workhorse in the snow removal industry, with our new Snow Plow Prep Package, we’re really delivering for folks who clear the way after a big storm. Being able to safely hook up bigger plows means roads, driveways and parking lots are cleared quickly and drivers can move on to the next job.”

Mike Pruitt, Ford F-Series Super Duty chief engineer

The F-Series has always been a leader in the snow and ice management industry with nearly 50 percent market share according to a 2019 SIMA survey. The F-Series has always been a reliable choice that’s easy to service with a well rated plow weight.

Along with past reliable features, the new 2020 F-Series will have contractors salivating with new features like a heated windshield that keeps the wipers ice free, as well as a heated steering wheel option and heated front and rear seats. There is also optional white or amber LED strobe lights on XL, XLT or Lariat series trucks that will take a step out of the upfitting process. Deep Snow/Sand drive mode is available on models equipped with the all-new 10-speed heavy-duty TorqShift® automatic transmission. This gives you a special drive mode that changes throttle mapping and traction control for added control on the snow and ice.
