From the sound of things, it seems that the ongoing power war amongst America’s many fullsize pickup trucks will continue unabated for at least the next few years. To wit, the next Power Stroke diesel engine from Ford that we’ve recently heard so much about is reportedly going to be quite a powerhouse. According to Straightline, the Blue Oval’s 6.7-liter V8 powerplant will put out 400 horsepower and a whopping 725 lb-ft of torque. That’s mighty impressive, to say the least.
By way of comparison, the current 6.4-liter Power Stroke is competitive for its class with 350 horses and 650 lb-ft of torque. Fortunately, all that extra stump-pulling power will reportedly come along with both an increases in fuel efficiency and cleaner emissions. Plus, the new engine will be fully compatible with B20 biodiesel blends, unlike the current 6.4L diesel.
