The F250-350-450 will all have the same engine as they do now. Unfortunately, Ford is doing absolutely NOTHING to the F450-F550 C&C truck engines.
There are two seperate F450 engines, one is in the pickup configuration that has the "higher horsepower" and the detuned version for the C&C trucks.

I guess I should clarify my question. I realize the new engine configuration will be in the F250/F350. I assume also they will have the exhaust brake. Are there any other things changing?

There are a couple things I'd really like to see added or atleast a freaking option for these trucks that are close to 70K!!!

- Push button start (dodge, and I chevy have this already)
- HID/Projector head lights: Common Ford get with the freaking program here, GMC has it, and the Raptor and F150 have it.. Why not the 70k superduty lol??
- Exhaust Brake: Dodge has had this for a while now.. Step it up..

/Rant lol

In all seriousness though I can't wait to see the engine and how it preforms! BUT I'll be keeping my truck until they add the above features.

Turbo lag was addressed by Ford at the intro in Texas. "The new turbocharger is 8.5 millimeters larger in diameter than before, which allows Ford to tune the Powerstroke to make more usable power, using less boost than before. That, in turn, meant Ford was able to eliminate the wastegate and its associated controls from the Powerstroke, making it simpler and more reliable.

Ford boasts that high-altitude performance is also improved, as is engine exhaust braking, thanks to the larger turbocharger. Other changes Ford made to the second-generation Powerstroke include a new high-pressure fuel pump and fuel injectors, reduced friction on the engine's internals, and a new torque converter for the six-speed automatic that allows it to handle the extra power."

they addressed the issue of turbo lag in the interview that said through a combination of the above and system management software, they believed that this would be a non-issue. I'm sure we'll find out when people get their hands on one!

So when do you guy's think dealers will have one on their lots? Looks like Ford isn't going to be officially releasing any info about power numbers until after the dealers see them. You would think if it's a big difference between the two engine set ups they would be itching to release the info.

Production on the Super Duty's is scheduled to begin on March 17, 2014 - someone else might have some more details but usually production begins so that they can get trucks onto dealer lots. I'd guess that we'll get info, anytime from mid Feb on.

Word on some blogs state that 425hp and 850 lb/ft will be close to the final numbers...guess we'll have to wait for the Official PR to know.

If history is any indicator, as soon as Ford announces, the competition will bump their numbers to slightly beat Ford. If you look at the 2011 introduction, Ford Announced 390hp and GM promptly announced 395, So Ford released their 400/800 flash to bump back to the top. I often think that they planned that just to thwart the competition.

I would expect Ford to hold the numbers till the last possible announcement.

I completely agree and every blog I read in 2011 said that's what they had planned, to come out with a lower number so that GM could beat them by a little and then they would up the number to be "best in class".

I suggested the mid-Feb date as an early date, because production begins in March, they'll need to have brochures ready, etc and I'm sure that someone will leak the numbers once they are building web site / printing brochures, etc.

Could be in March but that would seem like it's cutting things pretty close, but I agree with you, they'll try to hold off until the last possible moment so that GM/RAM can't play with the whole "best in class" bragging rights.
