I am new to the diesel world but i understand that the 2020 F250 will have a 10 spd trans instead of the 6 spd.  What will that do for the trucks performance?  Why would I wait instead of getting a 2019?

 

thanks

Mike

I would expect the 10 speed to really keep the PowerStroke in the meat of it's powerband full-time.  Expect minor changes in engine RPMs with shifts, and just a much smoother, refined delivery of power.  That's what I expect the main difference for the 10 speed in the PowerStroke.  I would expect a slight increase in fuel economy (5-10%), and slightly better performance, but nothing earth shattering.  The PowerStroke has so much torque, it pulls hard in every gear.

 

For a good comparison, go drive a 2016 F150 with the 3.5L EcoBoost with the 6-speed and compare it to a 2018 F150 with the same engine but 10-speed.

Diesel.  F250.  That would be the 6.7L PowerStroke.  :)
