2020 Ford Super Duty Trucks 7.0L V8 10-Speed Review & Changes – We keep on to get numerous questions regarding “What’s next for the Ford Super Duty trucks?” What upgrades and enhancements are approaching up for 2020. It is a small unusual to start referring to what is approaching up for a truck which was just completely remodeled a very little over a year earlier for the 2017 model year. As the market proceeds to get more and more aggressive, each and every producer remains on the foot to take the newest and the very best.
Ford has up to date the power scores on their own 6.7L Power Stroker turbo-diesel V8 for the 2018 model year. We are presently testing this truck. The diesel power and torque conflicts continue to be heated up as Ford arrive 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 (created at the Windsor center with the latest $1.2 Billion expenditure by Ford) that can presumably substitute or dietary supplement the pre-existing 6.2L V8. We inquired Ford about the 7.0L V8 engine specifically and gotten no additional clarification. Suppliers usually will not make known design specifics about approaching merchandise thus far in progress. The 7.0L V8 in a Super Duty continues to only a gossip.
Ford is presently utilizing a 10R80 10-speed automatic transmission in a vast majority of the Ford F-150 trucks they offer nowadays. There is the statement from August 2020 that Ford is preparing to start manufacturing of a heavy-duty 10R140 10-speed transmission in August of 2019. These kinds of a transmission will have a way to manage up to 1,032 lb-ft of torque. This the right time complements Ford’s intention to debut a “new” Ford Super Duty in 2019. Will Ford create this transmission and place it into the next Super Duty? We do not possess formal 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 properly? It certainly would seem probable, but we may have to hold out a tiny 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 electrical generator.” Could a Super Duty truck also reap the benefits of a hybrid powertrain choice? We are going to have to wait around and see.
