A new 6.8 liter engine would be planned

If the Detroit Auto Show is likely to be quieter than previous years, Ford will be sure to make a splash in his city by unveiling two famous models: Mustang and a staff car main responsibility. Indeed, a new version of the staff car is planned for 2023 and will bring new features to the range, including a new V8 engine.

This news comes to us from the American media Ford Authority which specializes in the coverage of the manufacturer’s products. It is rare that these media are wrong about this type of information, which allows us to consider it as a reliable source.

If the rumors are true, Ford will launch the next Super Duty with a new standard 6.8-liter engine that will replace the old (Boss) 6.2-liter V8. Remember that the last one has been in production at Ford since 2010. So it is quite natural for the manufacturer to replace it with an engine that is more modern and beefier.

Our source could not find the specifications of this engine. So we will have to wait until its unveiling, scheduled for next week at the Huntington Place apartment, in Detroit. In all likelihood, the other two Super Duty engines, namely the standard 7.3-liter V8 (Godzilla) and the 6.7-liter turbodiesel V8 (Power Stroke) will remain in the game. In addition, spy photos of the hidden concept – also taken by Ford Authority – allow us to assume that this Super Duty will show a design that is the same evolution as the twelfth generation F-150, introduced in 2021.

The RPM team will be at the Detroit Auto Show covering the unveiling, as well Super Duty 2023. So we will get back to you with all the details as soon as they become available.
