2020 Ford 6.7 engine changes

Guys, what updates are in store for the 6.7? A friend of mine says major updates but I donít think so. Iím thinking only minor changes and minor hp/torque changes. Thoughts?

Rumors say it will have over 500hp and over 1000 ft lb torque. Specs are going to be released nearer the time of production in the fall of this year.

Just found this today. I found it interesting if nothing more than speculation like everything else.

It's going to be awhile before we know. I'm waiting on the 2020 7.3L gas specifications, too. Since RAMs new high output model is over 1,000 ft-lb, you can guarantee Ford will be since they can use this as marketing leverage such as "comes standard." I don't know why an F-250 or F-350 diesel needs 490-500 HP though. I'd like to see MPG innovation with what's available today.

The pistons are the biggest update, I am sure there will also be a price increase on the diesel option. Ram has upped their HO to nearly 12k.

I agree kper. Like they say, horsepower is how fast you hit the wall but torque is how far you take the wall. Torque IMHO is where it's at.

x2 on the new 7.3 gas monster. I can't wait to see what it does. Not that I would trade my 6.7, but I'd like to take one for a test drive for sheets and giggles.

from past experience, I can say I am comfortable with the 4th year production run of the gen II 6.7 so I bought a 2019 last week. The gen II 6.7 was introduced in 2015 with a ton of fixes for the gen 1 6.7 introduced in 2011 which already had a tone of fixes based on 6.0 and 6.4 lessons learned.

from past experience, I can say I would not be comfortable with a 1st year production run of any new major engine change. The first year 6.4 and 1st year 6.7 were disasters.

Disasters? Hardly...Ö.that is 6.0 territory. A tiny percentage of valve issues does not constitute "disaster" in my book...

I'm really close to purchasing a 2019 F350 SRW or wait for the 2020 . I just sold a 2015 F-350 and my 2016 F-450 ... I loved the F-450 but its was at the top of its game for value but the underside rust on the steel bodies starting to comeback thats what motivated me to upgrade to newer aluminum .
500hp would be nice but not sure about any first year Transmission change .

I wish they'd invest a little more R&D on coolant leaks and fuel pump failures instead of chasing power.

The 6.4 never had a good year.

Congrats on the new truck. Enjoy!

If you're in the rust belt like I am, you either park the truck during winter or get it oiled like I do. We bought my wife's 09 Ford Escape brand new and like a moron, never got it oiled. Boy, do I regret that decision.

I'm curious how well that 10 speed is going to perform and if it will affect mileage. Time will tell.

We shall see. Maybe they went back to a regular gasket for the upper oil pan and fixed coolant leaks. But I'm willing to bet it's still the same CP4.2.
