Ford Super Duty 7.3-liter V8 Could Also Power the Mustang

Ford’s new Super Duty is the latest full-size truck to hit the market and like its rivals it packs plenty of power under its massive hood.

Powering the new 2020 Ford Super Duty will be a new 7.3-liter naturally aspirated V8 gas engine or a 6.7-liter Power Stroke diesel with an updated fuel injection system. Both get paired with a 10-speed automatic gearbox that’s similar to the 10-speed box found in the Ford Mustang.

That led many to speculate including the folks over at MotorAuthority that maybe, just maybe, this new 7.3-liter monster could eventually find itself powering the Mustang. In a sit down with Ford’s spokesman Mike Levine, the site was told that it was technically possible to use the V8 in the Mustang, but we shouldn’t hold our breath.

Designed specifically for the Super Duty, the V8 is a heavy engine that would give the Mustang plenty of power, sure, but that would probably come at the expense of balance and stability.

On the other hand, aftermarket tuners putting the 7.3-liter in the Mustang wasn’t ruled out by Levine.

We don’t know yet how much power the new Ford V8 will develop, but the automaker did predict it would be the most powerful in its segment.
