Default Official: Ford 6.7-liter Power Stroke Diesel to churn out 800 lb-ft of torque

Report: Ford 6.7-liter Power Stroke Diesel to churn out 800 lb-ft of torque



In February, the specs on Ford's 6.7-liter Power Stroke turbo-diesel V8 were announced: 390 horsepower and 735 pound-feet of torque. A month later, General Motors laid out the specs on its 6.6-liter Duramax turbo-diesel: 397 hp and 765 lb-ft. According to PickupTrucks.com, the Duramax could be shoved to the corner again later this year, when a high-output Super Duty blows out the footlights with 400 hp and 800 – or more – lb-ft of twisting gumption.

According to the unknown source within the Blue Oval, Ford's new 6R140 TorqShift six-speed transmission has strong enough guts that Ford can open up the taps on that engine a bit. And give GM something to think about. If this absurdly powerful dream does come true, the behemoth motor will be seen in the second wave of 2011 Super Duty pickups that begin production in a few months. No word on whether early adopters of the 6.7-liter will get a free upgrade.

A friend of mine that owns a 2004 or 2005 E350 diesel and a 2007 or 2008 F350 diesel, says that the van almost doubles the MPG of the pickup. These new diesels may be cleaner, quieter and more refined, but they are certainly not as economical as the traditional diesels.

Yeah the new diesels suck on MPG, few years ago you could tweak out 20mpg in a f350 towing a load

The 800lb of tq is nice but unless they bump up the standard towing rate it does not do much for me, sure it will tow a ton with a goose though

Fantastic motor, hideous and garish bodywork. Pull the EGR and EGR cooler off the 6.7 (or 6.4.. or 6.0), and the urea system, and the carbon trap... and you'll have an amazing powertrain.

Default Official: Ford 6.7-liter PowerStroke gets 800 lb-ft

Official: Ford 6.7-liter PowerStroke gets 800 lb-ft as of next week, upgrades available



Ford has made it official: beginning with next week's production, the 6.7-liter PowerStroke turbo diesel in the 2011 Ford Super Duty pickup will be upgraded to 400 horsepower and 800 pound-feet of torque. That's a bump of 10 hp and a jump of 65 lb-ft, enough to leapfrog General Motors' 6.6-liter Duramax by 3 hp and 35 lb-ft. Or, to put more bluntly, enough to run over the Duramax on its way to the top of the heavy duty engine heap.

Further, at the end of August, the Super Duty's frame will be strengthened, upping its payload rating by 550 pounds (to 7,070), which will also increase its fifth-wheel tow rating by 1,000 pounds to 22,600.

Although not much can be done for your tow rating if you bought a Super Duty as soon as it hit the showroom, you can get the power upgrade from your suddenly feeble 635 torques. For one year starting on August 31, 2010, will be able to take their pickups into Ford dealers and get their engines tweaked to the new standard. Since there's no hardware involved, Ford says it should take just 20 minutes to get the reflash job done – learn more with the official press release after the jump.

UNIQUE CUSTOMER PROGRAM ALLOWS ALL PICKUP OWNERS TO GET 2011 FORD SUPER DUTY POWER GAINS

* The 6.7-liter Power Stroke® V8 turbocharged diesel powering the 2011 Ford F-Series
Super Duty is now rated at best-in-class 800 lb.-ft. of torque and 400 horsepower
* Existing 2011 Ford F-Series Super Duty diesel pickup owners can get the increased power along with additional fuel economy improvements through a free dealer-installed software upgrade to the truck's powertrain control module

For more news from the CAR Management Briefing Seminars, please click here.

TRAVERSE CITY, Mich., Aug. 3, 2010 – In an industry first, Ford Motor Company will make sure all 2011 Ford F-Series Super Duty pickup customers – past and future – receive the added power produced by the all-new 6.7-liter Power Stroke V8 turbocharged diesel.

The new Power Stroke is now rated at a best-in-class 800 lb.-ft. of torque and 400 horsepower. Owners who purchased a 2011 Super Duty diesel earlier this year will receive a letter inviting them to their dealership for the free 30-minute software upgrade to the truck's powertrain control module.

The upgrade program will begin by Aug. 31 and continue for the next 12 months. The 2011 Super Duty diesel pickups in dealer inventory also will receive the upgrade.

"We want to take care of our loyal, F-Series Super Duty pickup owners who supported us when we debuted our all-new Ford-designed, Ford-engineered and Ford-built Power Stroke earlier this year and reward them by offering them the same best-in-class torque, horsepower and fuel economy our new customers are receiving right now," said Barb Samardzich, Ford Motor Company's vice president of powertrain engineering.

Samardzich made the announcement at the Center for Automotive Research's annual Management Briefing Seminars.

Marc Cross, co-owner of Jordan Ford in San Antonio, is eager to share the news with his loyal customers. His store is in the center of the largest truck market in the country – about 20 percent of truck sales nationally – and among the top 100 retail Super Duty volume dealerships in the country.

"Simply put, I love it," said Cross, who has been with the dealership since 1987 and a co-owner since 2003. "Not just the increased power, which is fantastic, but the fact that I can call my loyal customers who bought the 2011 Super Duty diesel pickups at the outset and let them enjoy this upgrade, too.

"It's human nature to say, 'Darn, I should have waited.' But with this program, there's no penalty for being an early adopter, so to speak."

Cross' affiliation with Ford dates back to 1978; he says this type of program is a first as far as he can remember.

"I think this is unprecedented; I don't remember anything like this," said Cross, who added the 2011 Super Duty diesel pickup is outselling the outgoing product about 3:1. "This shows the tremendous alignment between Ford Motor Company and its dealers and its customers. I also think in a way people expect this type of action from Ford. Ford is operating differently – at a higher standard."

This latest initiative complements ongoing customer service related to the introduction of the new Power Stroke. 2011 Super Duty diesel pickup customers also can return to their dealers for one no-charge DEF (Diesel Exhaust Fluid) top-off. DEF is used in the aftertreatment system to help reduce emissions. It generally is topped off during oil-change service intervals, depending on customer use.

"For customers who haven't yet taken advantage of this free offer for a DEF top-off, the software upgrade might be the perfect time to come in and have both services at once, free of charge," said Doug Scott, Truck Group Marketing Manager.
