Ford 6.7-liter V-8 Power Stroke Diesel Engine Ratings Leaked (Again)


Edmunds is reporting that their sources say that Ford's all-new 6.7-liter Power Stroke V-8 turbocharged diesel will crank out final power ratings of 400 horsepower and 725 pounds-feet of torque. That's up considerably from today's 6.4-liter PSD that's rated at 350 hp and 650 lbs.-ft. of torque.

We'd say that's amazingly close to the "more than 390 horsepower and 720 pounds-feet of torque" numbers that we told you about in July 2008, when Ford's in-house team was still tweaking with the Scorpion motor's final output figures.

And we'll add this little nugget of unofficial information from our sources: No production decision has been made but we're told that there are several Ford F-150 engineering mules running with Scorpion Power Stroke motors under their hoods. It's possible that Ford's light-duty diesel program could as a way to help recoup the massive investment made in the program.
