2015 Ford F-350 Engine
Paragraphimage The video begins on a stretch of motorway in Davis Dam, Ariz., where the trucks race two each time up a 6-percent grade while dragging a 20,000-pound trailer for seven miles. The very first opposition for the 2015 Ford F-350, which is powered by the updated 6.7-liter Powerstroke turbodiesel V-8, is the 2013 Ram 3500 with its 385-hp, 850-lb-ft 6.7-liter Cummins turbodiesel I-6.
The brand-new Powerstroke has yet to receive output scores, yet Ford flaunts it will make greater than the outward bound engine’s 400 hp and 800 lb-ft of torque. The vehicles should climb up in 90-plus-degree warmth to the finish line, which is around 3000 feet over sea level. In the video, Ford declares the F-350 sped up from 0-45 miles per hour seven secs a lot faster compared to the Ram, and a time-lapse shot exposes the Ram was likewise 21.3 seconds behind the Ford at the goal.
Next up is the 2014 Chevrolet Silverado 3500 with its 397-hp, 765-lb-ft 6.6-liter Duramax turbodiesel V-8, which additionally carries over in the just-revealed 2015 model. The Ram obtains the leap on the F-350 off the line, however the Ford closes the gap and finishes the four-mile course almost 10 secs in advance.
We have yet to test the brand-new 2015 Ford F-Series Super Duty, but when we checked the current version throughout our 2011 Truck of the Year regimen, we found the Powerstroke didn’t live up to its ratings. The engine was exceeded by the diesel in the GMC Sierra Denali 3500 HD in 0-60 mph testing by 0.7 2nd vacant, and half a second when filled, even with being acclaimed as “class-leading.” We’re troubled to sample the upgraded Powerstroke and see exactly how it accumulate to the competition for our own selves. For now though, take pleasure in the Ford-produced video here.
