Re: 2020 Super Duty Tremor

Im curious though, a lot of speculation that the off-road SD would be Timberline. Wondering where that name will be used.

Fortunately I am one of the few that remember the actual debut of the Tremor name, and that it had nothing to do with off road prowess.

Me too. It was a high-watt sound system option package for Ford Ranger SuperCab that was offered for a few years.

So fascinated with Ford's EcoBoost technology!!!

So the SD's largest gas V8 is beaten by the F-150's biggest turbo V6. I was expecting it to at least match the Ecoboost at 450/510.

I expected a bit more, and this does not provide Ford the significant competitive advantage I had hoped for. It does barely shade GM's new albeit smaller 6.6 401 HD V8 , and quite frankly Dodge could easily match this with the 6.4 392 HD V8. I am sure it is far more profitable for Ford to sell the Powerstroke diesel to HD truck buyers, and that definitely figures into the equation.

Re: 2020 Super Duty Tremor

The power figures make sense, as the torque is what actually matters and the torque band most of all. As much as we're all used to gaudy power numbers for some time, now, this is the engine's debut and initial production tune(s). Its power levels are starting at the upper echelon of the market, is much less complex than the Ecoboost motors, and is built for endurance/packaging/simplicity.

I fail to see the problem. It's not some part of the pony car hp wars, it's for hauling/towing while being less expensive than the diesel.

If GM can justify Buick, and if Honda can justify Acura, we can damned well have Mercury back.

Re: 2020 Super Duty Tremor

Yup, the motor was designed as a cheap alternative to Diesel, which the SD and commercial market demands. It will also replace the legacy modular motor. Area under the torque curve is the name of the game here, as is it's long term durability targets with it's cast iron block. Pretty sure Ford knows how to make more peaky power, but there is pretty much zero demad for it in this segment. When I heard D35 turbo like power/Tq numbers, I guess I assumed Raptor numbers. But still, being King is not a bad place to land.

And no, this would make very little sense in a Raptor. You would give up a lot of power, and gain a lot of weight.

I did hear that it exceeded all their fuel efficiency goals, for what that's worth.

The issue is that a clean sheet design is still only broadly competitive with its competition. That includes torque which GM is only 11 lb ft shy with even less displacement.

That being said there was a statement about many hours of wide open throttle testing , and bearing as well as cylinder wall wear was said to be negligible.

Re: 2020 Super Duty Tremor

I see very little applause by guess who, and a lot of crying in his breakfast cereal. Any reason I wonder why he can't applaud an excellent replacement to the thirsty mod motor in a value package that is very capable, in a high volume product, while continuing to pursue leadership as King of the segment?
