Default Ford Keeps V-10 Gasser in Super Duty Lineup; Will Be Chassis-Cab-Compatible for 2012

<p> Once upon a time, 10-cylinder engines were considered a normal presence in the heavy-duty truck market, but those days have since passed us by. Big-displacement engine programs have been curtailed, but Ford is keeping its 6.8-liter V-10 in the Super Duty lineup for just a bit longer.</p>
<p>Sure to delight fans of the gasoline engine, Ford's V-10 continues to employ a three-valve, single-overhead-camshaft setup to help put out a reliable 362 horsepower and 457 pound-feet of torque. While not as powerful as Ford's newly developed 6.7-liter Power Stroke V-8, the V-10 gasser can be prepped for alternative fuels, including compressed natural gas and liquefied petroleum gas. The transmission selected to accompany the engine is the six-speed TorqShift automatic transmission, the same choice for the Power Stroke diesel, and the engine and transmission combo can be ordered for Ford's 2012 Class 6 and 7 chassis cabs, indicating gross vehicle weight ratings up to 30,000 pounds are serviced.</p>
<p>Now you may be wondering, what's the appeal of the gasoline-fueled V-10 if the diesel provides more capability? In commercial sales, pricing is often a big factor to fleet managers, and the V-10 helps provide an attractive option in between the most basic V-8 and the top-shelf turbo-diesel engines, which typically cost multiples of thousands of dollars for the engine alone."No other manufacturer offers this wide of a range of options and solutions for truck customers," said Len Deluca, director of Ford's commercial truck sales and marketing. "The availability of a gas engine in this medium-duty segment will be welcome news to many businesses and municipalities."</p>

the V10 gas engine was huge when I worked up in Northern Alberta. Didnt have to worry so much about finding power to plug the truck in over night. You'd be suprised how cold those engines can be, and still fire up

Dont admire my truck too much, your daughter is probably in my back seat
