Default 3.2L Powerstroke Diesels will be in 2014.......

Ford announced that their 3.2L Powerstroke diesel engine will be an option for 2014 Ford Transit van coming to North America. The European power specs(which are usually slighlty lower than US SAE Standards) are 197hp and 347lb-ft. you can read the rest of the article here (Ford Is the First Truck Maker With Two Diesels). This brings the F-150 one step closer to having a diesel although I am not sure I would want one with the higher cost and having to mess with DPF filters.

So 200 hp and 350 lb-ft of torque out of a diesel, sounds good to me. Can anyone say engine swap?

Yes!

I would love to have a diesel, but I don't need a 250.


Of course I would never use my f150 on the highway, so who needs that pesky DPF?

Probably won't happen. Ford seems to be focused on Ecoboost technology for the F-150, diesels combined with Ecoboost options would just confuse consumers. By the next gen F150 I'd say probably most if not all of their engine choices will be Ecoboosted. I'd go as far as to say the next gen F-150 (due to being lighter) will have an upstroked 4cyl Ecoboost as it's base motor.

I'd love to see a diesel but it probably won't happen, and due to more strict regulations and technology in a few years I doubt we'd be even able to modify diesel engines. They'll be locked up tight.

Yeah, I already had a customer of mine tell me that he got his truck impounded and a $1,500 fine for taking his DPF off by TXDOT. I spoke with a DPS officer about it and he said that most officers like local police do not know about it, but most state troopers know where to look. If it's not there, then you might as well call a cab in some states. You can run a tune as they do not have a way to tell if you have one or not yet. However thick black smoke with every compression of the throttle is a dead give away almost every time.

Yep, buddy of mine DPF deleted his Duramax (stupid idea) and a cop was behind us, he took off from a light not realizing he was there and left a trail of black smoke evidence, got in some trouble.

Your actualy right about the 4 cyl ecoboost. I have some connections that are pritty high up at ford and I always get the inside scoop on things early. Their adding a small engine with (what they call) a "nano" turbo. So it will b the entry level/base engine ecoboost.

That diesel better get some good mpg to make up for the higher priced fuel and presumed option cost. Plus there's all the pesky EPA crap to deal with too. Would be interesting though.

This makes what about 12 years now with a baby PSD rumor. That along with the EPA's war on diesels I don't see this happening.

I have a Jeep Liberty CRD 2.8L (Stock 160hp/295#torque)...with a tune from GDE (GreenDieselEngineering) it has 200hp/365#torque. With an upgraded turbo and tune 218hp/400#torque is available.

The thing runs great and at 4550 pounds with 4wd and Awd it still gets over 20city and can get near 30highway.
