The 6.7L Power Stroke® V8 Turbo Diesel Engine has a standard power rating of 270 hp/700 lb.-ft. of torque. You also have your choice of available 300 hp/725 lb.-ft. of torque and 330 hp/750 lb.-ft. of torque power ratings.20 The 6.7L was tested to over 800,000 simulated customer kilometres, which contributes to a B10 design life of more than half a million kilometres. The unique inverse-flow design locates the Turbocharger between the Cylinder Heads and the top of the Block, with the Exhaust Manifold inboard and close to the Turbo, for faster air displacement and greater power. The Driver-Activated Engine Exhaust Braking restricts exhaust flow to create back pressure for seamless braking and reduced brake wear on downhill grades.
The Ford TorqShift® HD 6-Speed Automatic Transmission is specially designed with a Three-Plate/ Two-Stage Torque Converter and Gearsets strengthened with extra Pinion Gears to handle the heavy demands of the V8 Turbo Diesel and V8 Gas Engines. The SelectShift® feature has two modes: Progressive Range Select that limits the range of gears to lock out overdrive, plus Full Manual Control. Another feature is Tow/Haul. On an uphill, it selects the gear that minimizes gear hunting; on a downhill, it prevents upshifting and an increase in speed, reducing reliance on brake pressure to slow down. And the TorqShift® offers the available Live-Drive Power Takeoff Provision with Stationary and Mobile Modes.
The Ford Power Stroke® Turbo Diesel offers features to monitor and initiate diesel particulate filter regeneration. When exhaust soot builds up in the Diesel Particulate Filter (DPF), the engine will need to clear the filter of soot through a process called active regeneration. The Power Stroke® Turbo Diesel offers an available Active Regen Control that delays this auto regeneration if the truck is idling over combustible material such as dry grass. When idling, especially for extended periods of time, the engine doesn't generate enough heat to automatically clear the DPF. That's when the standard Manual Regen Initiation feature comes in. A light on the Instrument Panel alerts the driver of the need for regeneration, and pushing a button starts the process of raising the exhaust temperature to burn off the soot in the DPF.10
