Ford Super Duty 7.3-liter V8 To Make 430 HP

Ford’s new 7.3-liter V8 will make 430 horsepower in its most powerful version.

Unveiled back in February at the Chicago Auto Show, the new 2020 Ford Super Duty’s 7.3-liter V8 will produce 430 horsepower at 5,500 rpm and 475 pound-feet of torque at 4,000 rpm. It will have a variable-displacement oil pump, larger main bearings, and a range of temperature management features such as piston cooling jets.

The Super Duty’s V8 will also be available in a 350-horsepower version with 468 pound-feet of torque. This engine will be standard fare on the Ford F-450, F-550, F-600, F-650, and F-750. The 450-horsepower version will power the Ford Super Duty F-250 and F-350 versions. The 6.2-liter and 6.7-liter Power Stroke diesel V8 engines will continue to be offered.

A new 10-speed automatic gearbox will pair with the 7.3-liter V8. No word yet on towing numbers but Ford says they are coming. We will also get upgraded numbers on the Power Stroke diesel.

“The 7.3-liter is designed for maximum durability in the harshest environments given that our customers live and work in these conditions every day,” said Joel Beltramo, Ford manager for gas V8 engines. “This engine has the largest displacement in its class and is designed to provide benefits in key areas like power, durability, ease of maintenance and total operating costs.”
