As the battle of the pickup truck wages on, Ford (F) is coming to the table with a new 430 horsepower V8 gasoline engine in its F-Series pickup trucks this fall. Ford announced the availability of the engine in its upcoming 2020 models on Thursday.

The new 7.3-liter engine will drive 475 pounds per feet-of-torque at 4,000 rpm in the trucks and will be mated with a 10-speed heavy-duty TorqShift transmission. The engine will be an option on the 2020 F-Series Super Duty and standard on the F-550, F-600, F-650, and F-750 medium-duty trucks as well as the E-Series and F-53, and F-59 models.

“The 7.3-liter is designed for maximum durability in the harshest environments given that our customers live and work in these conditions every day,” Joel Beltramo, Ford manager for gas V8 engines said. “This engine has the largest displacement in its class and is designed to provide benefits in key areas like power, durability, ease of maintenance and total operating costs.”

Details on the V8 engine include overhead-valve architecture for greater power in the low rpm range to pull heavier loads sooner, and with a greater degree of confidence, Ford said. The engine also has a variable displacement oil pump, extra-large main bearings, forged steel crankshaft, and piston cooling jets for better heat management under heavy loads.

Ford said it will offer the V8 in its 2020 Super Duty F-250 and F-350 pickup trucks first, which are also available with a 6.2-liter V8 gaseous-powered engine and 6.7-liter PowerStroke diesel V8. The company said it will be announcing upgrades to the PowerStroke diesel as well as towing and payload rating upgrades later this year.

Shares of Ford stock were down 0.16 percent as of 1:04 p.m. ET on Thursday.
