Ford Unveils New 2020 Super Duty Pickup With Huge 7.3-L Engine

Most powerful Super Duty yet launches with two new engine offerings including all-new advanced 7.3-liter gasoline V8 and upgraded third-generation 6.7-liter Power Stroke® diesel V8; all-new heavy-duty 10-speed TorqShift® automatic transmission

Ford has unveiled the new 2020 Super Duty pickup with a huge 7.3-L gasoline engine.

On the same day that Chevrolet unveils the 2020 Silverado HD, Ford takes the cover off their 2020 Super Duty. Coincidence? Probably not. However, one can’t help but think this reveal is a little bit rushed as Ford neglected to include any numbers along with their press release.

Except for one very impressive number: an all-new 7.3-L gasoline V8 engine. That’s the biggest engine in its class.

Of course, engine displacement isn’t necessarily an indicator of performance. For all we know, this brand new 7.3-L engine makes the same power as the old 6.2-L V8. However, Ford did at least say that it would be the most powerful V8 in its class, so it’s probably more powerful than the old 6.2-L.

Along with the big new gas engine is a redesigned 6.7-L Power Stroke turbodiesel V8. In its third generation, the Power Stroke gets all-new injectors, a redesigned electronic-actuated variable-geometry turbocharger, stronger cylinder heads, a strengthened block, and more durable connecting rods, bearings, and pistons. All this combines to provide more power than the current 450 horses and 935 lb-ft of torque, but Ford doesn’t say by how much.

And the 6.2-L V8 is still here too with 385 hp and 390 lb-ft for those who can’t afford the latest and greatest Ford has to offer.

Also new for 2020 is a 10-speed automatic transmission that is only 3.5 lbs heavier than the old 6-speed and fits into the exact same space. That’s good since it seems the 6-speed auto is nowhere to be found.

New F-Series Super Duty now offers class-exclusive Pro Trailer Backup Assist, while its Trailer Reverse Guidance is now compatible with fifth-wheel and gooseneck trailers; standard FordPass Connect™ with 4G LTE modem and available wireless charging keep you connected; smart driver-assist features such as automatic emergency braking are standard on XLT series and above

New engines are exciting, but so is new technology. The 2020 Ford Super Duty will now get Pro Trailer Backup Assist, which is basically a little knob that lets you fine-tune your steering with a reverse camera. Trailer Reverse Guidance provides suggestions as you try and shoehorn your horse trailer through a barn door and now works with fifth-wheel and gooseneck trailers.

Now standard is FordPass Connect with 4G LTE modem with wireless phone charging an available extra.

Pricing and availability have yet to be announced, but we expect to get those along with the power figures sometime in the coming months.
