2020 Ford Super Duty 7.0L V8 Engine Review & Changes – It is a tiny strange to start discussing what is arriving up for a truck which was just completely remodeled a small over a year back for the 2017 model year. As the market proceeds to get increasingly very competitive, every single company remains on their own foot to deliver the most up-to-date and the greatest.
Ford recently current the power reviews on the 6.7L Power Stroker turbo-diesel V8 for the 2018 model year. We are presently testing this truck. The diesel power and torque conflicts keep heated up as Ford is available in with class-top 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 issue about the rumored 7.0L gasoline V8 (made at the Windsor premises with the latest $1.2 Billion purchase by Ford) which will presumably change or health supplement the pre-existing 6.2L V8. We questioned Ford about the 7.0L V8 engine immediately and gotten no more clarification. Companies usually do not reveal design specifics about approaching items thus far in progress. The 7.0L V8 in a Super Duty is nevertheless only a gossip.
Ford is presently making use of a 10R80 10-speed automatic transmission in a bulk of the Ford F-150 trucks they offer nowadays. There is a document from August 2019 that Ford is preparing to start the creation of a heavy-duty 10R140 10-speed transmission in August 2019. This sort of a transmission will have a way to deal with up to 1,032 lb-ft of torque. This the right time suits Ford’s purpose to debut a “new” Ford Super Duty in 2019. Will Ford create this transmission and use it into the next Super Duty? We do not possess established work for this nevertheless.
Is 1,000 lb-ft of torque in a 3/4-ton or a 1-ton Ford Super Duty arriving in 2019 as nicely? It definitely would seem feasible, but we may have to hold out a very little 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.” Could a Super Duty truck also make use of a hybrid powertrain choice? We shall have to wait around and see. In this article is a 2017 Ford F250 towing a heavy trailer on the Ike Gauntlet™ – World’s Most challenging Towing Test.
