Ford Installs 6.7L Powerstroke V8 in Half Million F-Series Trucks

Ford Installs 6.7L Powerstroke V8 in Half Million F-Series Trucks
ST. CLAIR SHORES, Mich. - Having just built its 2 millionth EcoBoost engine, Ford reaches another engine milestone after installing the 6.7L Powerstroke V8 in a half-million F-Series trucks.  This milestone is especially sweet since Ford continues to be the only company that sells a heavy duty diesel truck in the U.S. that has a drivetrain that is designed and built in-house.

This in-house built and designed 6.7L Powerstroke V8 engine was first introduced in 2010 and has only been around for three years. Even with so few years beneath its belt, this powerful engine has hit the half million mark for the 2014 model year - all possible because of the high demand for the engine. Customers rave about how the engine is able to combine performance, towing capability, and fuel economy, and it is because of this combination that the engine is so popular.

Ford has just installed the 6.7L Powerstroke V8 in a half million F-series trucks but the vehicle that was lucky to receive the 500,000th 6.7L Powerstroke V8 was a 2014 Ford Super Duty F350 Lariat. This Super Duty truck is well-deserving of the milestone engine, as it will produce 400 hp and 800 lb.-ft. of torque - talk about power!

Some characteristics of the 6.7L Powerstroke V8 diesel engine that make it high in demand are:
  • Aluminum Cylinder Heads
  • High Pressure Fuel System
  • High Mid-Mounted Turbocharger
  • Compacted Graphite Iron Engine
  • B20 Biodiesel Capability
  • Unique Inboard Exhaust/Outboard Intake Architecture
While these are only a few of the features that make this engine Ford Tough, there are many aspects of this great V8 that make it clear this engine is built to last and be powerful.
