Battle Of The Powertrains: Ford 6.7 Vs Three Dodge Cummins In Epic Battle With An Unexpected End
On the left side we have a Ford 6.7 Power Stroke. Power Stroke stays to let the other guys that there is a V8 diesel engine under the hood. Power Stroke could be found in Ford Excursion SUVs, Ford Diesel trucks, Ford Econoline vans and the Brazilian Ford Ranger. Initially all Power Stroke engines were manufactured by Navistar International Corp. until 2010. After 2010 Ford took the decision to build those engines completely in-house.
In the video that we are going to see, the Ford pickup truck is equipped with the first medium duty diesel that was designed in conjunction with AVL of Austria and built by Ford. The code name of this engine line was “Scorpion”. The first generation of this diesel engines line produce exactly 390 horsepower and 735 lb. ft. of torque. Right after the start of the production Ford updated the engines.
The new engine control software of this 6.7-liter diesel engine increased the performance numbers – 400 horsepower and 800 lb. ft. of torque. On the right side we have not one, not two, but three Dodge pickup trucks. All of them got the Cummins B series diesel engine under the hood. We got here the bigger 5.9-liter / 360.0 ci straight-six diesel engine in all three Dodge trucks.

Those straight-six diesel engines are considered to be one of the biggest straight-six motors used for light truck vehicles.

Engines produced up to 2000 produce 235 horsepower and 460 lb. ft. of torque. The higher output is rated at 245 horsepower and 505 lb. ft. of torque.
