Sharp looking truck, but this 2020 release is making me wonder how much different the new Gen 14 F150 is going to look if it's a 2020 launch.

The beauty of pushrods is you can make a more compact engine.....the 6.2L is likely the same size and weight as this new engine. Iím excited, itís a beautiful engine on paper for the Super Duty. Big displacement is the most economical for a big truck and hauling weight all the time.

Ford engineer said in the new TFL video it will be more efficient than the 6.2/6 combo.

I'm with you guys. Too big. Too heavy. The HP they're pushing out of the 5.0 and 5.2FPC/CPC is incredible, but higher in the RPM's. This 7.3 will be a grunt down low I'm sure.

Plus, 7.3L is 445 CI, so it can't be a Boss 429.

That's actually not bad, I think I like it better than the current gen. At least, on that dually it looks good.

Headlights look to be improved as well. Appears to be LED projectors versus a LED reflectors.

Could this be the 7L Raptor motor we've been hearing rumors about?
