Half-Millionth 6.7-liter Power Stroke Diesel Installed in 2014 Ford F-350 Super Duty

High Demand for New Diesel That Debuted in 2011

Sep 30, 2013
The Power Stroke diesel brand name has been around since 1994, when it was applied to the 7.3-liter direct-injection turbodiesel co-developed with Navistar. Those who have followed Ford heavy-duty trucks closely know there have been several generations of Power Stroke, and that the latest version, which first debuted for the 2011 model year is a clean break from the Power Stroke's sometimes troubled past. Ford just commemorated the milestone of the installation of the 500,000th 6.7-liter "Scorpion" Power Stroke in a 2014 Ford Super Duty at its Louisville, Kentucky, truck assembly plant.
The 6.7-liter engine was a radically new design for both Ford and the HD truck segment, employing reverse-flow aluminum heads, a compacted graphite iron block, and a twin-compressor turbo. At its debut, the engine produced 390 hp and 735 lb-ft of torque, at the time a class-leading number. GM quickly raised the bar with the LML Duramax at 397 hp and 765 lb-ft. An ECU reflash on the Scorpion quickly brought it up to 400 hp and 800 lb-ft. Just last week at the State Fair of Texas, Ford debuted a revised Power Stroke for the 2015 Super Duty with a new, larger single-compressor turbo and promises of greater power output, although official figures were not announced.
