Default Rumor: Ford May Increase 2011 Super Duty Power Stroke Diesel to 800 Lb-Ft of Torque

<p></p>
<p>The battle in the pickup truck power wars is far from over. Although General Motors' revised Duramax engine is presently king of the hill, reports suggest the engineers at Ford are hard at work revamping the 2011 Super Duty's Power Stroke diesel to throw down a whopping 800 pound-feet of torque.</p>
<p>Presently, GM's revised 6.6-liter, twin-turbocharged Duramax diesel V-8 cranks out 397 horsepower and 765 pound-feet of torque -- roughly seven horsepower and 30 pound-feet better than the new 6.7-liter Power Stroke turbo-diesel V-8 offered in the new 2011 Ford Super Duty. According to the folks at PickupTrucks.com, that could change within the next several months.</p>
<p></p>
<p>&nbsp;</p>
<p>According to the truck enthusiast site, Ford is working on a high-output version of the 6.7 Power Stroke that could produce around 400 horsepower and "at least" 800 pound-feet of torque by tweaking the engine controller. This coincides with earlier reports that suggested Ford could easily tune the engine to produce more power, but it seems the revised ECU may be accompanied by a few extra hardware changes to either the engine or transmission.</p>
<p>If all goes according to plan, look for the upgraded Super Duty trucks -- possibly billed as 2011.5 models -- to roll off the line in Louisville, Kentucky, later this year.</p>
<p></p>
<p>&nbsp;</p>
<p>Could we see a diesel counterstrike from either GM or Dodge/Ram? Perhaps, but not in the near future. We've heard Dodge is working with Cummins to release the full potential of the turbo-diesel inline-six, although a revised package may not arrive until 2012 or so. GM, on the other hand, has admitted its current Duramax is about as far as it can go without crafting an all-new engine.</p>
