Dearborn, Michigan – Ford has announced a new 6.7-litre Power Stroke V8 turbocharged diesel engine, which will debut in the next-generation F-Series Super Duty Truck.

Engineered, tested and manufactured by Ford, the new diesel engine will deliver significant improvements in torque, horsepower and fuel economy while meeting stringent new emissions requirements.

“This all-new diesel engine has been so extensively tested both in the lab and in the real world that we’re confident we’re giving our customers the most reliable and productive powertrain available today,” said Derrick Kuzak, group vice-president of global product development. “Our Super Duty customers demand reliability and durability in their trucks so they can deliver the best results for their business and their customers. That’s exactly what this engine delivers.”

The new engine uses “inboard exhaust” architecture, an industry-first for a modern production automotive diesel engine, which reduces overall exhaust system volume, produces better throttle response, and minimizes heat transfer and noise, vibration and harshness. The 6.7-litre also includes the first use of a compacted graphite iron engine block, which is stronger than regular grey cast iron, in a super duty-class vehicle in North America; its architecture enables easier service work for all major engine components, potentially reducing down time; and its single-sequential turbocharger delivers the benefits of a twin-turbocharger system in a smaller, more efficient package. The engine is also compatible up to B20 biodiesel fuel.
