  1. Someone tell him the same for electric cars too.

    GT500 powered Raptor

    Nice to see the pending TRX pushed Ford to reconsider the no V8 option, which the Raptor should have always had IMO.

    New light & medium duty news

    Interesting for sure, I wonder how it makes sense to make a seperate steel cab (from 20 something years ago) and interior bits rather than just switch over to the new aluminum cab.
  4. Yes, not a video from Ford though. 6.2 has never been offered in anything above 350. Media from Ford yesterday “New for 2020 Super Duty chassis cab, customers can choose from three engines - the 7.3 liter gas V8, a third generation 6.7 liter Power Stroke or a 6.2 liter gas V8” I think they took that as all CC will have 6.2 when in actuality it’s probably only 350.
  5. I think the 6.2 listed as option is a misprint.

    Doesn’t have much to do with cab style changes? Sounds like a business decision to me.

    Seems it would be cheaper to replace a cab in limited production with the one used extensively on other products. Makes Ford look cheap IMO also.

    Wonder why they kept the old SD cab on Medium Duty?

    IFS is disappointing, hopefully a special edition/model with SFA is available.
  10. Yup, the sound difference alone would be worth it. Hearing a new Raptor it’s as if Honda or Toyota built the motor. 😓 Atleast now we can stop talking about EB 5.0’s or the like in SD’s as Ford themselves admits that the Ecotrash is nothing more than a marketing gimmick that doesn’t cut it in the real trucks. They must have gotten tired of the GM 6.2 beating them in performance and economy and more than likely long term reliability.
  11. 7.3 will likely not weigh much more than 6.2 that had no problems being in last gen Raptor. Based on what we have heard with 7.3 being 50lbs less than V10 it could actually be around 120lbs more than 3.5EB. 😂
  12. Because Ford’s building a new big block and the Raptor is supposed to be the baddest truck Ford builds. EB V6 is the most overrated motor on the market today from Ford. The 7.3 would put out similar power NA, should be more reliable long term, cheaper to build, and sound a heck of a lot better. It’s not like the EB’s have earth shattering fuel economy either.
  13. Raptor needs this motor, it most assuredly fits and how much more would the 7.3 weigh? I feel most Raptor buyers would prefer a V8 if the option.

    New Ford 7.0 L....?

    I don’t really think the type of people who will be buying the 7.3 want AFM anyway.
  15. Can’t wait, very excited the 7.3 does appear to be available across the lineup.
