How about that new 7.3-liter V-8 in the Ford Super Duty? It measures up at 430 hp and 475 lb-ft, and it’s able to hit 60 mph in a 7,200-pound F-350 Tremor wearing knobby off-road tires in just 7.3 seconds. Not just poetic, but pretty good for a factory-built monster truck, right? Eh. Have you heard you can get it with a diesel?
And not just any diesel. The 2020 Ford F-Series Super Duty trucks get a 6.7-liter Power Stroke turbodiesel V-8 that makes 475 hp and, seriously, a ridiculous 1,050 lb-ft of torque. But wait, there’s more. You can get this gargantuan engine with the new Tremor off-road package on most F-250s and single-rear-wheel F-350s. A thousand lb-ft of torque in a factory off-roader with a lift, 35-inch tires, and a winch. It’s a beautiful thing.
