The new V8 produces 430 horsepower and 475 lb.-ft. of torque in Super Duty pickups, slightly less in some of Ford’s other commercial trucks.

The engine is paired with Ford’s new 10-speed automatic transmission on F-250 through F-600 trucks.

The 7.3L engine is an upgrade from the Super Duty pickups’ previous gasoline V8, a 6.2L that produced 385 hp and 430 lb.-ft. of torque. The 6.2L remains the base engine in the F-250 and 350.

General Motors also introduced a new 6.6L gasoline V8 — its biggest gas V8 — for its Class 2 and 3 (Chevy Silverado and GMC Sierra 2500 and 3500) pickups this year. It produces 401 hp and 464 lb.-ft. of torque. Ram’s biggest gasoline V8 for its 2500/3500 trucks is the 6.4L Hemi.

Ford has a new diesel V8 coming this fall, too, but it hasn’t revealed its power output yet.
