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>
