The Ford Power Stroke® Diesel engine remains an integral part of the Super Duty lineup. It comes standard on all Ford F-450 trims, as well as an optional feature for the remaining models. Since 2011, this masterly innovation for performance capabilities continues to earn top awards and boast multiple class-leading statistics.
Best-in-ClassThe current iteration of the Ford Power Stroke® is a 6.7L V8 Turbo Diesel. As the title indicates, this beast is equipped with a turbocharger located between the cylinder heads at the top of the engine block. A bit larger than previous years, the turbocharger has greater airflow capacity and increased power for monstrous hauling and towing performance, and you get the advantage of a closely positioned exhaust manifold for quicker air displacement and additional strength.The result is a myriad of best-in-class badges to show off:
- Horsepower: 440 @ 2800
- Torque (lb.-ft.): 860 @ 1600
- Gross Combination Weight Rating (GCWR): 40,400-lbs.
- Fuel economy
Let us also not forget the Power Stroke®'s 31,200 lb.s of maximum towing capacity.
