The Power Stroke V8 Turbo Diesel Engine

Tehama County and Red Bluff business owners have come to rely on the Power Stroke V8 Turbo Diesel engine throughout the years to keep their goods, services, and equipment on the move. The Power Stroke V8 Turbo Diesel is a 6.7-liter V8 engine driven by a cutting-edge 36,000-psi-fuel injection system. This system is new for the most recent model year, and features injectors that atomize fuel up to eight times per stroke to enhance combustion. Throttle response has always been more than adequate, but the latest Power Stroke engine also sports a refreshed electric-articulated variable-geometry turbocharger that reduces "turbo lag". Hit the gas and you'll feel a quicker response and less hesitation no matter the tow load. Block strength has also been improved while forged-steel pistons have been added to ensure long-term durability and peak power output.

That's just a glimpse at the groundbreaking new Power Stroke V8 engine. We recognize that you're really here to learn about its capabilities and output. Check out the specifications below to better familiarize yourself with this legendary engine:

Not an expert when it comes to heavy-duty trucks? No problem -- our Ford Super Duty truck experts at Corning Ford are here to assist you in any way they can. One of the largest draws the Power Stroke engine offers is the fact that it runs on diesel leading to maximum torque output. In simple terms, torque is the grit and raw force that gets your heavily-laden truck moving from idle. Diesel powertrains are the go-to option for drivers in and around Chico, CA as they provide ample muscle to get you moving and ensure you have enough power to cruise at that rate without sacrificing fuel-economy ratings. The 1,050 pound-feet of torque that's generated by the Power Stroke engine is produced at only 1,600 rpm and is the best in its class. If you require a truck that can offer just as much hauling strength as towing capabilities, this advanced powertrain kicks out best-in-class horsepower.

Unsurprisingly, Ford F-350 and F-450 trucks armed with the 6.7-liter Power Stroke V8 Turbo Diesel Engine allow for a maximum tow rating of 37,000 pounds in a gooseneck configuration. Fifth-wheel towing comes in at slightly under 32,500 pounds. Both are class-leading capabilities. Simply looking to tow your fishing boat out to the lake? Leave the Ford Super Duty in its standard towing configuration for a best-in-class maximum diesel conventional towing capabilities rated at 24,200 pounds.
