I want to know what’s the lowest differential gearing that will be available on the 2020 Ford with the 7.3. That thing would be a beast with the 4.30s! I’m betting with the 10 speed 3.73 will be the lowest available though.

I don't think they're release available gear ratios yet, at least I can't find them.

The hp for pickups is 430. I see they have a reduced 350hp version for mid sized trucks, F-450 and up. I assume those are for commercial use where hill climbing isn't an issue.


I see people my age mountain climbing. I'm lucky to get into my underwear without losing my balance.

Went to the dealer this AM to talk about a pickup, looks like a 19 is in my future. The order banks are open and you can get a 7.3 with 4.30s, should be a monster of a workhorse. But I can’t wait until January to get a truck and the deals on the 19s are just too good, I’ll be saving about $12k off what an ordered 2020 with the 7.3 would cost me.
Sadly the only 6.2 truck with 4.30s we could find nationwide in the configuration I want doesn’t have any other options. No cruise, no power anything, AM/FM radio only, just bare bones basic and I want something a little bit nicer. So I’m hoping that I’ll be okay with 3.73s and I think I probably will, maybe it’ll get better mileage and I’ll forget about it.

Wow! That 7.3 with 4:30s will definitely be a monster!
