The 2015 Ford Super Duty F450

2015 Ford Super Duty Diesel Gets Bigger Turbo - Bigger Power

Ford Motor Company announced this morning that when the 2015 Ford F Series Super Duty pickups begin hitting dealerships around the country, they will feature a massive new high tech turbocharger that will make the Super Duty more powerful, more capable and more efficient than ever before.

The current Ford F Series Super Duty pickup powered by the 6.7L PowerStroke diesel V8 is among the most powerful engines available with 400 horsepower and 800lb-ft of torque but this monster mill falls a bit short of the 6.7L Cummins Turbo Diesel I6 that packs 385 horsepower and 850lb-ft of torque under the hood of the Ram 3500. In an effort to close that gap, Ford has revamped their PowerStroke V8 for the 2015 model year and while the Motor Company hasn’t quoted any exact power figures for the 2015 Super Duty – Ford has promised that the new PowerStroke will offer more power than the current heavy duty diesel engine.

“Truck leadership means never resting, and the Super Duty team has been tireless in finding ways to improve the industry’s most popular heavy-duty pickups,” said Joe Hinrichs, executive vice president and president of The Americas, Ford Motor Company. “Super Duty diesel customers will benefit from improved performance and features backed by outstanding Built Ford Tough durability.”
