2020 Ford Mustang Shelby GT500
The 2020 Ford Mustang Shelby GT500 is the most powerful street-legal Ford vehicle ever, thanks to a supercharged 5.2-liter V8 producing more than 700 horsepower. This makes the new GT500 capable of getting to 60 mph in the mid-three second range and passing the quarter mile in less than 11 seconds.
Straight-line performance is impressive, but the Mustang Shelby GT500 also features a race-bred chassis, custom Michelin tires, massive front brakes and an aerodynamic design for better handling. Ford Performance driver control technologies also give drivers more customization from behind the wheel, further enhancing the GT500’s performance.
Built by hand, the 5.2-liter aluminum alloy V8 is impressive on its own, but Ford engineers added a 2.65-liter roots-type supercharger and air-to-liquid intercooler for even more power. Power goes through a TREMEC 7-speed dual-clutch transmission for lightning-fast shifts, and then through a custom carbon fiber driveshaft for strength and weight savings.
The GT500’s larger grille opening allows for 50 percent more airflow compared to the GT350, and the louvered hood vent features a removable aluminum rain tray for improved air extraction and increased downforce. The wider front fenders give the car a nice stance and hug the 11-inch wide front and 11.5-inch wide rear wheels.
Of course, the interior has been upgraded as well, with race-inspired premium materials throughout the purpose-built cockpit. Recaro racing seats are available with pass-throughs for safety harnesses as well. A 12-inch full-color LCD instrument cluster, 12-speaker B&O Play audio system and 8-inch SYNC 3 touch screen are all standard on the 2020 Mustang GT500.

2020 Ford Super Duty Tremor Off-Road Package
For truck owners who want even more off-road capability for their heavy-truck, Ford is offering the 2020 Ford F-Series Super Duty with an all-new Tremor Off-Road Package. This new package allows the Super Duty to handle all kinds of rough terrain, while still providing more towing and payload capacity than competitors like the Ram Power Wagon.
“A growing number of Super Duty customers use their trucks for more than work,” said Todd Eckert, Ford truck group marketing manager. “They’re fishing, camping and towing boats on weekends and the go off-road, so we designed this truck specifically for them.”
The Super Duty with the Tremor Off-Road Package gives drivers more ground clearance, as well as bigger shocks, bigger tires, a locking rear differential, beefy skid plates and more off-road capability. All of these off-road ready upgrades don’t hurt towing and payload ratings for the Super Duty either, so you can still do all of the work you need.
The Tremor Off-Road Package is available for F-250 and F-350 models, and can be had in XLT, Lariat, King Ranch and Platinum trim levels. Engine options are either a 7.3-liter gas V8 or a 6.7-liter Power Stroke diesel. All Tremor Super Duty trucks are 4×4 single-rear-wheel models with the SuperCrew cab and 6.75-foot box.
Selectable drive modes give customers more options depending on weather and road conditions, and include normal, tow/haul, eco, slippery for ice and deep snow/sand for low traction conditions. The 2020 Super Duty with the Tremor Off-Road Package also gets a standard 10-speed automatic transmission and Trail Control.

Ford Completely Reinvents the 2020 Escape
Redesigned from the ground up, the 2020 Ford Escape is the latest in a line of completely reinvented SUVs from Ford. The all-new Escape is sportier than ever before, with a sleek new design, four efficient powertrain options and standard selectable drive modes.
The 2020 Ford Escape is built for the long haul, with each of its available powertrain options offering at least 400 miles per tank of EPA-estimated driving range. If you want even more miles per gallon, the all-new Escape Hybrid and Escape Plug-in Hybrid will offer over 550 miles of extended range.
With influence from high-performance Ford models like the Mustang and Ford GT, the 2020 Escape is one of the most stylish SUVs Ford has ever designed. The new Escape is longer, lower and wider than the current model, giving it a purposeful stance, and the optimized aerodynamic design helps with fuel economy and wind noise.
Like other Ford vehicles, the new Escape is lighter than the previous model with over 200 pounds in weight savings. By using high-strength, lightweight steel and new ultra-high-strength 3D-rolled tubes along the roofline, the new Escape is stronger than ever. Aluminum components like the hood and certain suspension components also help lower the weight.
Useful features like a sliding second-row seat and Active Park Assist 2.0 are unique in the small SUV segment and make the 2020 Escape even better than before. Smart technology like FordPass Connect with 4G LTE Wi-Fi, SYNC 3 with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, Waze navigation and Ford+Alexa make the new Escape one of the most connected vehicles on the road.

The 2020 Ford Super Duty will offer its highest-ever towing and payload ratings, as well as new engine options and class-exclusive technology.

“Super Duty customers have demanding and diverse needs – from towing heavy trailers to repairing critical infrastructure,” said Kumar Galhotra, Ford president, North America. “Our new Super Duty has more power, more payload and towing capability and better technology than ever to help these customers build a better world.”
All-new for 2020 is a Ford-built 7.3-liter V8 that joins the standard 6.2-liter V8, giving truck buyers two gasoline-powered options. The third-generation 6.7-liter Power Stroke diesel V8 has also been upgraded with more power and torque and comes standard with the 10-speed heavy-duty TorqShift automatic transmission.
The 2020 Ford Super Duty also receives Pro Trailer Backup Assist for the first time, which makes it easier to backup large trailers into tight spaces. Drivers can use a dash-mounted knob to steer the trailer via the reverse camera with their hands off the wheel. The system works with conventional, gooseneck and fifth-wheel trailer styles.
Additional upgrades for the 2020 Super Duty include standard FordPass Connect with 4G LTE and Wi-Fi, wireless charging, USB-C ports and a variety of advanced active safety features.
