Ford installs 500,000th 6.7-liter power stroke V8 turbocharged diesel engine

Ford announced the installation of its 500,000th 6.7-liter power stroke V8 turbocharged diesel engine, which went into a new 2014 Ford Super Duty F-350 Lariat pickup truck. The engine was installed at Kentucky Truck Plant in Louisville.

"This is a significant milestone
for an engine that was introduced just a few years ago," said Doug Scott, Ford Truck Group Marketing Manager. "Demand for the engine has outpaced our expectations; our customers love the combination of performance, towing capability, and fuel economy."

The 6.7-liter Power Stroke V8 diesel engine delivers 400 hp at 2,800 rpm and 800 lb ft of torque at 1,600 rpm, along with class-leading fuel economy while adding more fueling flexibility and easily meeting stringent emissions requirements. The 6.7-liter diesel shares super duty's legendary reliability and durability while enabling up to 24,700 pounds towing capability for F-450 pickup and up to 26,600 pounds for F-550 chassis cab.

"Our Super Duty customers are no-nonsense, no-compromise individuals," said Joe Bakaj, Vice-President of Powertrain Engineering. "Those are the attributes our team took to heart when engineering this diesel engine so we can deliver Built Ford Tough capability, reliability and enhanced productivity."
