The Ford 6.7L engine is number 1, a diesel engine and number 2, called the 6.7 Scorpion motor because it has a turbocharger mounted on it, which was designed by Ford. It is of the same family as the 7.3L engines, called Powerstroke diesel engines. If it’s a Powerstroke, it’s a Ford engine, although the Ford 6.7L Powerstroke engines for sale were not as common, we stock one because we get calls for them periodically.
The reality of the matter is that International Engine Company designed and produced the engine. Yup, it’s a real International engine, designed for Ford trucks only. The important thing to know is that there were some 6.7L diesel engines offered in Ford pickups called the 6.7 IDI [indirect fuel injection]. Built between 1988 and 1994, these are not Powerstroke diesel engines, because they have no turbocharger.
The 6.7L Powerstroke engines are equipped with turbochargers and required a more advance fuel delivery system made by Bosch, which was operated by a sophisticated computer setup that is programmed with Ford software. It puts out 390 horsepower and has an astounding 735 lbs. of torque. Torque is the important power figure for diesel engines. As opposed to horsepower for gasoline engines.
One of the beauties of this engine is that it uses a single-sequential turbocharger by Honeywell, which has an industry first dual compressor turbine and combines the expedient response time of a small turbo with the high capacity pressure of a large capacity turbo.
Considered one of the new generations of ”green” diesel engines, the 6.7 Poerstroke uses several new and efficient methods of controlling emissions, such as integrated exhaust gas recirculation, selective catalytic reduction [SCR], and a diesel particulate filter which virtually eliminates soot.
