Saw an article the other day if I remember correctly it'll be available on the Raptor in MY 2019 along with the 10 speed transmission. Once again if my memory serves me correctly that's how ford introduced the 6.2... it was available in the Raptor first then moved to the SD the article explained....sorry don't have the link.

I was told by a Ford engineer it will be a 7.3 size to hearken back to the original powerstoke, and will be a push rod engine.

And I second that same information. I’ve heard it verbatim as you mentioned.
I don’t know launch schedule yet.

I hope they do. If it's here by 2020, I'll probably be ready for a new one.

This is a new gas or diesel engine? 8 or 10 cylinders?

gas engine, v8. I was also told by the same engineer that they are testing steel pistons in the next gen powerstroke, and they will be the first to break 1000 ft lbs, handily.

While 1000 lb.ft. of torque is all fine and well, I'd like to see them make some real headway on the fuel economy front. In 15 years Ford almost doubled horsepower and torque. While that IS nice. I'd be really impressed if these trucks had doubled their fuel economy. If Ford could do that, they'd own the truck market.
Well, I guess I'd better rephrase that, they'd own the truck market,,, even more.

I agree about fuel economy. I can't imagine what mileage they expect to get out of the 7.3. My dodge cummins friends claim 20+ mpg routinely.

20+ mph out of which engine? Dodge gas engines? Wow. That would be great! I wonder what differential gears they have.

20-22 mpg was normal at 60-65mph in my Cummins, but that was the 305hp, 555ft-lbs, 5.9 engine with little emissions equipment.
The newer 6.7 Cummins are not getting anywhere near as good.

Increase the horsepower, torque and displacement to 440, 925, 6.7 L plus the additional emissions equipment and it's hard to complain about the 17-18mpg you get out of a Powerstroke at similar speeds.

Very interesting! I had heard it wasn't much more than an enlarged version of the 6.2L and it probably wouldn't be offered in pickups. Story was the 7X will be a replacement for the V-10 and go into the F-450 and larger chassis-cabs.

GM is supposed to be working on a big gas V-8 that they will probably share with Navistar.

My Cummins gets that 20-22 mileage, on the lie-o-meter.
Actual hand calculated is right at 18. Not much better than most report here.
Most of my Cummins friends use the meter for mpg average, my experience with them is it varies vehicle to vehicle and make to make. My Jetta TDI is off by .1, Passat TDI is off by about .5, BMW is off by 1 but it's actually low (reports 25, actual is 26), and Cummins is high but 2-4 mpg.
Mega Cab, 4x4, SB, biggest truck they made until they put the Mega with the LB.

Seems to me that if you want it to be a throw back to the original 7.3L Diesel, why would you make it gas?
That would be like Dodge calling a Diesel a Hemi. Just seems odd to me.

I have a contact at Windsor Engine. talked to him Friday, and he indicated the old line had been pulled out, and that very little equipment has been brought in for the assembly line as yet. They are doing the assembly line, but he does not know where the blocks and heads are being made as yet.
