A new 2020 Ford Super Duty engine will be available on
heavy-duty models like the F-250 and F-350. It’s a 7.3-liter V8, and it is

“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,” commented Joel Beltramo, Ford manager for gas V8 engines, in a recent Ford press release. “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.”
In F-250 models through F-600 models, this engine will be paired with a 10-speed heavy-duty TorqShift® automatic transmission. Commercial models above the F-600 will instead match the engine with a TorqShift® heavy-duty six-speed automatic transmission. The Ford Super Duty is the only truck in the segment to offer such a potent, advanced powertrain among such a wide cast of models. The 2020 Ford F-Series Super Duty is coming soon to Shults Ford Harmarville. Call, email, or visit the showroom to learn how you can be the first on your block with one of these wonderful toys.
