All-new 7.3-liter V8 in 2020 Super Duty cranks out best-in-class gas horsepower and torque | Heartland Ford of Heber Springs




The numbers are in on the all-new 7.3-liter gasoline V8 available in the 2020 Ford Super Duty, and they're big. REAL big. As in Ford just announced that the new 7.3-liter V8 produces class-leading power when it comes to both horsepower and torque for Ford trucks that can take on your toughest towing and hauling jobs and come back for more. 

 

Paired with an all-new ten-speed TorqShift automatic transmission, the massive new pushrod V8 delivers best-in-class gas V8 horsepower of a whopping 430 hp, plus class-leading torque of 475 lb.-ft., for workhorse capability when towing or hauling.
 

“The 7.3-liter is designed for maximum durability in the harshest environments given that our customers live and work in these conditions every day,” said Joel Beltramo, Ford manager for gas V8 engines. “This engine has the largest displacement in its class and is designed to provide benefits in key areas like power, durability, ease of maintenance and total operating costs.”

Ford drew on decades of heavy-duty commercial engine design experience when developing the all-new 7.3-liter V8, which features tried-and-true overhead valve architecture for superior durability and power low in the rev range, right where you need it when towing, to help get big loads moving quicker off the line. Inside, the 7.3-liter V8 is built for the long, tough haul as well, with features like a forged steel crankshaft with jumbo-sized main bearings for durability, a variable displacement oil pump, and pistons with cooling jets for extra chill when the going gets tough.

The latest in one of the best engine lineups of any heavy-duty truck, the 7.3 gas V8 joins the 6.2-liter gas V8 in the Super Duty's arsenal of available power plants, along with the third-generation 6.7-liter PowerStroke V8. The new engine will be available in the 2020 F-250 and F-250 Super Duty truck at launch this fall and will be available later in Ford Commercial trucks, including the F-450 chassis cab, the F-550, the F-600, the F-750, F-53 and F-59.
