They could easily have a 6.2 test mule for publicity. 6 2 has a redline of 6k.

I looked at the F 600 publicity pics from a few months ago and the dash pics in those show a redline at 5200-5300 on one, and about 4800 on another. shrug........ https://www.motortrend.com/news/ford...00-super-duty/

Nice find! 5K seems about right; I hope it is 4.8K. No way the 7.3 is every going to see 6K in a truck platform.

I'm assuming that with this new gas engine not only would they want to be top with power, but also towing capability. Think they're going to try and beat Rams 17,200 lbs?

it took ram a couple year to catch up now by a few thousand pounds if im not mistaken (at least diesels i think) and its gonna take them another couple years to catch up again in a few months. then ford will blow them out of the water again or eventually its gonna have to level off before tow ratings of 80,000 GCWR. pretty sure these diesel pickups have the power to do it

2019 diesel f450 reg cab pickup 4.30s has a 43.3k gcwr!

The f450 pickups can tow lots but when loaded to the max can barely maintain 50mph on big grades, 80000gcwr will never happen on a pickup, however used to have a ford l900 with a 475 gas engine with a gvwr of 61000lbs, was a dump truck

the most improvement will be in the gasser department. ford might just meet and beat or shoot for the moon. i think they should shoot for the moon. this might prolly be the last v8 ford might ever design and see hybrids in the not to distant future so might as well sell as many as possible to cover developmental costs. not a big believer in tesla but im sure it lit a fire under most buts

the 10 speed loaded to the max should be a huge improvement on big grades. seems like in the f150 its not as important with lower gcwrs and pretty powerful engines for the loads

surprisingly f750 only has a max 50k gcwr. obviously pickups will never reach class 8 loads but the new f600 could be upfitted as close to a pickup and will probably have some impressive capabilities
