They do a lot of things wrong in Europe, from fashion to music (you’ll never catch Kenny Chesney in a mesh tank top, mark my words. Oh, and why is the pizza crust so dang thin?), but one thing they do right is diesel. Sadly, diesel engines have received a bit of a bad rap recently, to which we say — lying, das not nice! That’s why the fine folks at Ford set out to make a diesel truck engine built on the award-winning, environmentally conscious EcoBoost engine, without skimping on what makes a diesel truck engine great in the first place: raw power! We’re talking the type of low-end torque that’ll take your towing to the next level. So read on, and learn how Ford has (once again) elevated the art of engine design with their new Power Stroke® Turbo Diesel engine.
Now I know, some of you will be wondering, “Why should I pay extra to upgrade my already stellar EcoBoost engine?” Why do anything? Why upgrade to the BLIS® Towing-system? Probably the same reason you bought a Ford truck in the first place — because there’s no tougher truck on the market. And when you are tacking on 10,000 plus pounds of trailer or boat, and hauling it up and down the Rockies (or any Alberta highway for that matter) you want to feel confident that’ll you’ll get to your destination with exceptional control, lower fuel consumption, and a more polished driving experience. This is where Ford’s new Power Stroke® Turbo Diesel truck engine comes in to play. Not only did they minimize the friction inside their new Type Direct injection Turbo-diesel powerhouse, but they balanced airflow and lessened noise, which is no small feat. Not to mention, they did this while increasing the thing that makes a diesel truck engine so damn great in the first place — low end torque. That lag you feel when you’re towing in a non-diesel? Non-existent. Nothing but pure pull from the moment your foot touches the pedal.
Surely, some of you are now thinking, “Well, if they increased power, they increased emissions. And I don’t need any enviro-nerds givin’ me grief over the engine that helps me get the job done.” But that’s why we’re here, to set you and your misconceptions straight. Yes, Ford increased power in their Power Stroke® Turbo Diesel truck engine, but increased emissions? Please. We’re professionals over here, and we’re focused on giving the people what they want. That is why, in addition to reducing fuel consumption, Ford’s new diesel engine has reduced CO2 and NOX emissions (take that, Al Bore). Don’t believe me? Maybe some numbers will convince you: Ford’s new Power Stroke® Turbo Diesel truck engine has reduced fuel consumption and CO2 emissions by 13%, and improved its low end torque by 20%. Any more questions? I didn’t think so (disclaimer: more questions below).
So, does your truck need Ford’s new Power Stroke® Turbo Diesel engine? I don’t know — do you like the power and the toughness synonymous with Ford trucks, with a sprinkling of reduced fuel consumption and emissions? Do you like driving past gas stations and checking your cup holder to see if you need a fresh cup of joe, as opposed to checking your fuel gauge? Do you know how to use the trailer hitch on your truck for something other than ornamentation? If you answered yes to any of these questions, come down to the Ford truck specialists at Team Ford and learn about the soon to arrive, better than ever, Power Stroke® Turbo Diesel truck engine.
