Michigan 6.7L Power Stroke Experts
The 6.7L Power stroke is the first Power Stroke built by Ford and not their partner of almost 30 years, International Navistar. To retain profitability and a competitive edge in the expanding diesel category, Ford made the decision to design, engineer, and manufacture its own diesel engine. The lack of a partner appears to have provided Ford an edge over rivals by allowing Ford the opportunity to create an engine that meets both their unique requirements and those of their customers.
6.7L Power Stroke Features And Specs
The 6.7L Power Stroke is a V8 diesel engine that was used in a variety of Ford vehicles, including the F-650 and F-750 models. The engine is said to provide quicker starts in even the coldest of weather, thanks to its “instant start” glow plugs. The engine also features piston cooling jets, which help to lower combustion temperatures and increase engine longevity. Additionally, the engine is compatible with B20 biodiesel, and it is reported to get 18% better fuel mileage than the previous 6.4L Power Stroke engines.
