Ford 6.8 Liter being replaced

Recommended Posts

Attended a RV show in Chicago this weekend.  Talked with a REV/Fleetwood sales rep and he indicated Ford is discounting the 10 cylinder 6.8 gas engine, we did not discuss F53 chaise. Curious if anyone else has heard similar news and what will be replacement?

Yes, it has been well publicized that a brand new 7.3 liter V8 will replace the 6.8 liter V10 in HD applications including E350, E450 and F53 chassis.

There is a thread on another forum about the new V8, same old complaint, terrible gas mileage.

Yeah, you cannot make enough power with gasoline to move something as large and heavy as an RV and get decent MPG’s.

IMHO Ford messed up when they dropped the 460 engine. It was a workhorse.

This is basically the 460 re visited. With output of 350 or 430 horsepower at 5,500 rpm and torque of 475 ft.-lb. at 4,000 rpm depending on which web site you look at. It looks like a step backward to me.
