Why weren't they released on reveal night?

It won't lose out to the outgoing 2020 F150 so we know it'll have a max tow capacity of at least 13,000 pounds, but should we expect an increase in towing capacity or just the same?

Most of the discussion regarding towing now is touching upon the fact that the tow numbers are already so high that you're towing more than 2x what the truck its self ways. To do much better, safely, you're going to be forced into a super duty just to have a heavier, more stable tow platform (the truck its self). Even at the 13k lb. level, you're really better off in an F-250. More rigid frame, bigger breaks, heavier vehicle, etc.

I'm mostly concerned with payload. Yes, Ford claims a maximum payload of over 3,000, but of course none of the trucks really have that much. I'm hoping they hold the line or slightly improve payload capability for the average SuperCrew platform. Something north of 1,700 for a Platinum or King Ranch would be nice. ;-)

HDPP with more option selection would be great. I'd kill for a Lariat Sport 5.5 with HDPP.
