I noticed that the new Ford class A motorhomes built on the F53 chassis are now using the V8 engine instead of the 6.8 V10 does anyone know the why? How does the V8 compare to the v10?

The Godzilla is a better engine in a lot of ways. More efficient, more power, more torque and quieter.

I thought Ford dropped the V-10 engine when they started producing the 7.3 gssoline V-8 engine.
Is the V-10 still being produced?

Dont forget,,,, 2021 Class A's are being built on 2020 Ford Chassis and drivetrains.
There is some overlap.

The 7.3V8 has about 21 year newer technology and from the reports I have read it shows. Not the the V10 was bad, but Ford learned a lot in those 21 years.

From my reading the engine makes less HP but is more efficient. I haven't read any reviews yet that say it's worlds better. The V-10/6spd was amazing. The 7.3 has got big shoes to fill, and so far I'm not seeing it anywhere!

Maybe the doghouse will be smaller giving you more room in the cockpit. V-10 was 362 HP then detuned to 320 HP in the newer engines the 7.3 is supposed to be 350 HP. Only time will tell if performance or MPG will improve in a 18,000 lb MH. Some initial reports I have read about Class C's with the new engine have been good.
