Meet the Scorpion: Ford debuts a new 6.7-liter Power Stroke Turbocharged Diesel V8, called Scorpion!

Ready to make its debut in the next-generation F-Series Super Duty trucks, Ford just unveiled its new and awaited 6.7-liter Power Stroke Turbocharged V8 diesel engine designed to deliver more horsepower, torque, fuel-economy, while offering best-in-class towing and payload. Ford like to call this engine, the Scorpion!
“This all-new diesel engine has been so extensively tested both in the lab and in the real world that we’re confident we’re giving our customers the most reliable and productive powertrain available today,” said Derrick Kuzak, group vice president of Global Product Development. “Our Super Duty customers demand reliability and durability in their trucks so they can deliver the best results for their business and their customers. That’s exactly what this engine delivers.” Ford says that that durability testing, put the new Power Stroke diesel engine through the equivalent of 250,000 miles.
The engine also features the industry’s first single-sequential turbocharger. The unit has double-sided compressor wheels driven off one turbine impeller. This technology offers faster throttle response without turbo-lag, and yet with the boost of a larger turbocharger for maximum power. This new engine also boosts-up fuel economy, as it features 4-valves per cylinder, with inboard exhaust and outboard intakes.

Look for the new 6.7L Scorpion V8 at next year's F-150 Super Duty truck.
