For 2020, the Ford F-150 enters the final year of its current generation, the first to use a lightweight aluminum body. The F-150 is carried over from 2019.
Ford offers the F-150 in seven trims: XL, XLT, Lariat, King Ranch, Platinum, Raptor, and Limited. Body styles include regular cab, Supercab and SuperCrew. There are five engines on offer: a 3.3L V6, a 5.0L V8, 2.7L and 3.5L turbocharged V6s, and a 3.0L turbodiesel V6. In addition, the 3.5L turbo comes in two versions, the more potent of which goes into the F-150 Limited and Raptor models.
XL and XLT use a six-speed automatic transmission; all other trims are matched with a 10-speed. The base driveline in most trims is rear-wheel drive, but 4WD is available.
F-150 XL models comes with 17-inch steel wheels, air conditioning, pre-collision assist with automatic braking, manual door locks, intermittent wipers, tilt-and-telescopic steering, an AM/FM stereo, black bumpers, capless fuel filling, manual windows and side mirror adjustments, automatic high beams, and tire pressure monitoring.
XLT adds power locks with keyless entry, satellite radio, Sync 3 infotainment, a Wi-Fi hotspot, aluminum wheels, chrome bumpers, fog lights, automatic on/off headlights, power-adjustable side mirrors, and power windows.

The F-150 Raptor shares its engine with the Limited model, but is otherwise much different, sporting an off-road, long-travel suspension and 17-inch all-terrain tires. It also gets a special overhead console with auxiliary upfitter switches. Raptor also gives up many of the Limited model's upscale features, including (but not limited to) dual-zone automatic air conditioning and ventilated front seats.
