2020 Ford Super Duty 7.0L V8 10-Speed Review & Changes – We proceed to get numerous questions regarding “What’s next for the Ford Super Duty trucks?” What updates and upgrades are coming up for 2020. It’s a very little strange to start talking about what is arriving up for a truck that was just completely remodeled a small over a year back for the 2019 model year. As the market continues to get more and more competitive, every company keeps on their own foot to deliver the latest and the very best.
Ford recently up-to-date the power rankings on the 6.7L Power Stroker turbo-diesel V8 for the 2018 model year. We are at present testing this truck. The diesel power and torque wars remain heated as Ford will come in with class-top rated 450 horsepower @ 2,800 rpm and 935 lb-ft of torque @ 1,800 rpm. This is five horsepower more than in the 6.6L Duramax turbo-diesel V8 in the GM HD trucks, and five lb-ft of torque more than the 6.7L straight-six Cummins turbo-diesel in the Ram HD.
First, there is the concern about the rumored 7.0L gasoline V8 (made at the Windsor premises with a recent $1.2 Billion purchase by Ford) which will presumably replace or health supplement the pre-existing 6.2L V8. We asked Ford about the 7.0L V8 engine specifically and obtained no further more clarification. Suppliers typically usually do not disclose design specifics about approaching goods thus far in improve. The 7.0L V8 in a Super Duty is nonetheless only a gossip.
Ford is currently utilizing a 10R80 10-speed automatic transmission in a majority of the Ford F-150 trucks they offer nowadays. There is the statement from August 2019 that Ford is organizing to start manufacturing of a heavy-duty 10R140 10-speed transmission in August 2019. These kinds of a transmission will have the ability to manage up to 1,032 lb-ft of torque. This timing fits Ford’s intent to debut a “new” Ford Super Duty in 2019. Will Ford generate this transmission and put it into the next Super Duty? We do not possess established work with this nevertheless.
Is 1,000 lb-ft of torque in a 3/4-ton or a 1-ton Ford Super Duty approaching in 2019 as well? It absolutely would seem possible, but we may have to hold out a small longer to get to a spherical 1,000 lb-ft. Ford also introduced that a “new F-150 will debut in 2020 with new hybrid powertrain featuring a mobile power generator.”
