We’ve known for a while that Ford is working on a new V8 engine, and we know what its displacement will be: the engine that will debut in the Super Duty truck series for 2020 is a 7.3L unit.
This past week the company revealed more details about the engine’s output.
Buyers getting a Super Duty truck with this new engine will benefit from 430 hp at 5,500 RPM, as well as 475 lb-ft of torque at 4,000 RPM.
Among the innovations featuring in the new mill is the presence of an overhead valve configuration, designed to maximize torque at low RPM. A variable-displacement oil pump allows for adjusting the flwo or oil depending in what the engine needs. The unit also gets a forged-steel crankshaft and a jet system for the pistons to reduce the temperature when the truck is working strenuously.
