The new unit, created "solely to deliver class-leading diesel to the next-generation Super Duty," develops 390 horsepower at 2,800 rpm and 735 ft.-lb. of torque at 1,600 rpm, that's 85 ft.-lb. and 40 horsepower more than the previous generation.
All that power is being translated in a towing capability of 24,400 pounds, while the payload capability of the new Super Duty stands at ,520 pounds.
“Developing the new 6.7-liter Power Stroke V-8 turbocharged diesel engine was an awesome endeavor,” Adam Gryglak, lead 6.7-liter diesel engineering manager said in a release. “The extensive engineering and testing made us confident this engine ensures the new Super Duty’s leadership in capability, reliability and productivity.”
According to the carmaker, the 6.7l Power Stroke V8 turbocharged diesel powertrain is capable of meeting the 2010 federal emissions requirements for nitrogen oxides (NOx), now sitting some 80 percent lower than the previous requirements. This makes the new Super Duty the cleanest off all previous generations.
To add to those green attributes, the engine has been made to be compatible with up to B20 fuel, allowing greener fueling options of up to 20 percent biodiesel and 80 percent petroleum diesel.
