Ford recently announced a new engine to replace the V-10 and use it in a new class A chassis. Does anyone know when this chassis and engine will be released?

House and chassis model years sometimes do not match with a chassis being a year older than the house plus builders might want to burn thru V10 inventory before they start using the newer stuff (first in, first out). So,,, maybe about this time next year or a little earlier.

You might see a builder beat everyone to the punch and push a completely new model out the door on the new V8 chassis while they still have V10 chassis inventory in house.

OK help me out here, I'm not the sharpest knife in the drawer.

I waded through the four links and was not able to determine the horsepower nor the torque.

Can some somebody tell me those numbers?

This seems to be what many are predicting;

"This will push the 7.3L V8 estimates to: 482 hp and 557 lb-ft of torque. The 7.3L V8 will make its debut in the 2020 Ford Super Duty (F250 and F350) trucks later this year. The engine will be mated to Ford's new 10-speed automatic transmission".

I certainly hope they addressed the abysmal handling of the F53 as well as the power! Hopefully they now have independent front suspension as well as an air ride option. I'm sure I can speak for everyone when I say the handling is bad enough that it should've been addressed before the power.
