2011 Ford Super Duty receives all-new 6.7-liter V8 turbocharged diesel engine

Article by Christian A., on August 29, 2010

The most reliable and productive powertrain available today, according to Ford, is its new 6.7-liter Power Stroke V8 turbocharged diesel engine that will be fitted to its next-generation F-Series Super Duty truck. In a press release, Derrick Kuzak, group vice president of Global Product Development said that we should expect the new Super Duty truck to get major improvements in power, torque and fuel economy.

He said that this all-new diesel engine has been extensively tested both in the lab and in the real world. The engine has a new architecture that provides easier access to most components, thus reducing down time.

Reduced noise, vibration and harshness are the result of a new inboard exhaust and outboard intake architecture. The high-pressure Bosch system was especially introduced to inject fuel at up to 30,000 psi, contributing to the final output of the engine. Aluminum components reduce the overall weight of the car by around 160 pounds (72.5 kg).

Barb Samardzich, vice president, Global Powertrain Engineering, said that Super Duty customers are no-nonsense, no-compromise individuals." These are reportedly the attributes the team focused on when engineering this all-new diesel engine so it can deliver 'Built Ford Tough' capability, reliability and enhanced productivity."
