Good. Details ought to start trickling out, soon. I wonder if the 10R140 will debut simultaneously.

So this is apparently not an evolution of the 6.2L Boss?

Don't think it's a Boss 777.

This will replace the V10, correct?

 

Edit: Yes it will missed that paragraph. Goodbye MOD V10

This and a 10 speed auto would be amazing in a Class C motorhome.

 

I envision that coming, along with the Class A chassis being upgraded. A VERY much-needed upgrade if you ask me! Now, if only they would put the PowerStroke in that chassis...

I would love to have one of these with the 7.3 gasser or 6.7 Powerstroke.

I'm not sure why they would keep the 6.2 alongside this new mill, at least not in the long term. IIRC, the F-250 and F-350 make up the bulk of non-F150 F-Series sales, so that's where the volume to justify developing this mill will be, and they don't really need two gassers for those two.

I say the 6.2 will stay, a 7l may be overkill for some....always wondered why the 5.0 didnt get utilized, but my guess would be the 5.0 is a more spendy engine than the 6.2.

The 5.0 isn't in the same class as the 6.2 when it comes to power output--the 6.2 is a torque monster. The Coyote is great, but it's not built for Super Duty, umm, duty; it builds its power and torque too high up in the revs for that kind of work. Edited by SoonerLS

There is no 6.2L listed in Ford’s 2020 engine list, only the 7.3.

Hard to imagine that the new 7.3 would replace the 6.2 in most applications,

there's a fuel economy improvement target for Class 2B.......

 

Interesting to see how Ford plays this out, I hope they do a great job on this engine

and that it surprises many with its fuel efficiency, especially under load..

If you are talking about that 'leaked' 2020 engine oil requirement document, the 6.2L is on it.

 

I think the 6.2L stays, and the 7X replaces the V-10 in the 450 and larger trucks.

Probably hidden behind the 5.0 @akirby.

 

Hidden? There's nothing there.

Sorry RMC. I guess I need to use the sarcasm tag. I was poking at akirby for his inability to notice the 5.0 listed in the sheet (earlier in the thread).

I saw that but it doesn’t make sense. All the others are in numerical order.

 

Also - the specification (ends in H1 or B1) doesn’t match the current oil specification (ends in A).

 

It is possible but it doesn’t add up.
