Ford recently introduced its exciting new 2020 F-Series Super Duty, along with other trucks for the 2020 model year. Now, Ford has announced that the Ford F-Series is being equipped with the all-new 7.3-liter V8 engine, which is a force to be reckoned with.

Specifics on the new engine
The 7.3-liter V8 gasoline engine achieves 430 horsepower at 5,500 rpm and 475 lb-ft of torque at 4,000 rpm. As such, the engine earns best-in-class torque and gas power, promising a smooth and powerful ride.
The engine is also conveniently compact and proves that great things do come in small packages. Able to handle heavy loads for tough jobs, the engine manages the temperature with piston cooling jets.
The overhead valve architecture on the engine also gives you enough power to take large loads long distances by producing the power within the lower portion of the rev range. In addition, the engine features extra-large main bearings, a variable-displacement oil pump, and a forged steel crankshaft.
So, how can you get a hold of the 7.3-liter engine? The very first models to have the engine will be the Super Duty F-350 and F-250. The Super Duty lineup already has the 6.7-liter Power Stroke® diesel V8 engine and the 6.2-liter V8 gas engine. However, the 7.3-liter engine looks to be an impressive addition.
The 7.3-liter engine pairs with the new 10-speed heavy-duty TorqShift® automatic transmission in the Ford F-250 through F-600 models. However, the other models will still be loaded with the TorqShift® heavy-duty 6-speed automatic transmission.
The new Ford F-600, F-550, F-59 and F-53 stripped chassis, F-750 and F-650 Medium Duty, and F-450 chassis cab trucks will have a dyno-certified version of the 7.3-liter V8 engine come standard. This engine reaches 350 horsepower at 3,900 rpm and 468 lb-ft of torque at 3,900 rpm.
