As reported on Blueovalnews, a baby Powerstroke diesel engine is being made. It is a 4.5 litre V6 turbo diesel (a 6.0 liter V8 minus two cylinders), which puts out 175kw and 556Nm. This engine was supposed to be ready by 2002, I guess it will still become available, and to me, it would make sense for Ford offer it in the R7. Hopefully Ford and Navistar will fix the emissions ready for production soon.
It will be a good idea for Australia too. Farmers and others in rural areas may see it as a viable alternative to their current offerings. But that is only if Powerstroke is made to suite our poor quality diesel.
