Once again, Ford is setting a new standard for
capability with the unveiling of its all-new 7.3-liter V8 gasoline engine. Available
for the 2020 Ford F-Series Super Duty, the new gas V8 engine offers
best-in-class horsepower and best-in-class torque, and it’s expected to provide
The 2020 Ford F-Series Super Duty 7.3-liter V8
will deliver 430 horsepower at 5,000 rpm and 475 lb-ft of torque at 4,000 rpm, both
of which are best among heavy-duty pickups powered by gas V8 engines. The new
V8 joins the 6.2-liter V8 that comes standard for the F-Series Super Duty as
well as the third-generation 6.7-liter Power Stroke® V8 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.”
Ford intends to offer a version of the 2020
Ford F-Series Super Duty 7.3-liter V8 for standard for its F-450 chassis cab,
F-550, new F-600, F-650 and F-750 Medium Duty trucks, and F-53 and F-59
stripped chassis models. This version of the 7.3-liter gas V8 will
generate 350 horsepower and 468 lb-ft of torque and be made available with fuel
consumption-improving calibration, making it a must for commercial customers.
The new 2020 Ford F-Series Super Duty will be available later this year at Robbie Roberson Ford. For more information on this mighty truck, stop into the showroom and pick the brain of one of our friendly experts.

It’s been about five years since the Ford Ranger completely replaced the Ford Courier on the global market and even longer since Ford offered a petite pickup in the United States. With the Ranger set to make a return to the United States for 2019, rumor has it that there could be a Ford compact pickup in the works.
Per Automobile, Ford is in development on a compact pickup truck that will slot below the Ranger. This truck would likely arrive by 2022, and it could be based on the architecture that underpins the new Ford Focus. Ford says that it will be “significantly expanding [its] North America lineup with all-new vehicles and entering new segments with fresh designs and white-space silhouettes,” which mainly means building on the success of its trucks,crossovers, and SUVs while moving away from conventional sedans.
Whether this Ford compact pickup truck would readopt the Courier name remains to be seen, but Road & Track reports that Ford has moved to trademark the name with the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office. Ford has not offered any official comment on whether this shall come to pass, but the team at Robbie Roberson Ford would like to offer a comment to Ford on behalf of truck-lovers everywhere: yes, please.
