Power Stroke is the name used by a family of diesel engines for trucks produced by Ford Motor Company. Since 2010, Ford has designed and produced its own diesel engines. Let’s talk more about which PowerStroke Engine is running your Ford.
How does it work?
- The fuel instantly ignites because of the high temperature of the air.
- The explosion pushes the piston down, which transfers power to the crankshaft.
- The 4th stroke is the process where the spent fuel-air mixture exits through the open exhaust valves, and the stroke cycle is repeated again.
This spring, Ford Motor company introduced the first ever PowerStroke option for the iconic Mustang car. The 3.0-liter diesel V6, which dances to the tune of 250 horsepower and 440 lb.-ft. of torque, brings the Mustang’s engine options up to three. The motor features a commercial-grade design similar to Ford’s larger 6.7-liter PowerStroke V8 and the same compacted graphite iron block and forged-steel crank as in the company’s high-performance 2.7-liter EcoBoost engine. Ford engineers gave it a high-efficiency turbocharger, a common rail fuel injection system, and a high pressure injection calibration, giving Mustang drivers more options for power and performance.
Last 2017, Ford announced that a 3.0-liter V6 diesel engine would be available for the 2018 F-150, and now it has landed at Koch Ford! The following are the full specifications for the newest and smallest PowerStroke motor: 250 horsepower, 440 lb-ft of torque, an estimated 30 MPG on the highway, and 11,400 lbs of towing capacity. The PowerStroke engine is available on the XL, XLT, Lariat, King Ranch, and Platinum trims.
Ford Super Duty
The output of the 6.7L PowerStroke V8 Turbo Diesel engine speaks volumes to people who work in tough Albertan industries, people who rely on it daily. This proven diesel is paired with an equally rugged 6-speed automatic transmission. Both are designed, engineered, and built to deliver its highest combination of horsepower and torque. Twin pilot injection delivers smooth, quiet acceleration. A driver-controlled engine exhaust brake with on, off, and auto settings enables engine braking to help slow the truck down and control vehicle speed. The 6.7L PowerStroke V8 yields 450 horsepower and 440 lb-ft of torque. However tough the work gets, you can always count on the Super Duty to get it done.
While the EcoBoost engine has its own strengths, PowerStroke engines unlock a lot of options whether you’re driving a Mustang, an F-150, or a Super Duty. Varying factors such as horsepower, torque, fuel efficiency, and towing capacity come into consideration when picking out which PowerStroke engine is right for you. Need more information?
