I wonder why Int'l is gonna make a V-6? If anything at all Ford should modify the underhood space to accomodate the 466. That has been proven to be a reliable engine fer the last 20+ years. A V-6 design will still use more fuel then a I-6 design due to extra moving parts. Every new highway tractor uses a I-6 engine and if that wasnt the way to go with them guys worried bout power n fuel economy well then they would have something different.

Hammerdown I am in agreement with you the 466 is better engine choice than the cummins or the duramax and it will make up to 850 ft lb of torque with out much problem either, but the current ford truck wont handle that kind of power very long but it would be nice to see that engine in a superduty.

Dt466

Hello If you knew what was coming for emissions on Dt's you would not want to get tangled up with one a friend works for Chevron carriers and he was telling me the engine in a international is going up in price by near 10 grand and the required maintence is going to be enormous the muffler is 6 feet long and is a case you have to open when light on dash says its plugged and remove a ceramic core thats platinum coated in front of cat. cartrige and have it cleaned
costs big bucks and needs special oil and changed very often wil need many thousands a year in special maintence plus its to cost 2 miles per gallon in milage for this clean burn tech. WOW what a deal

Ford had bettert get their act together on this diesel change. just the cost of maintaining the 6litler is enough to go broke on. the filters are sky high. just look at the new cummins, filters are still low and the oil change intervals for dino oil has been increased, fuel mileage is better as well. now i love my ford but if they come out with another one like the 6er is then i might have to make the switch just on the sheer cost of operation alone.

I would love to have a 6 cylinder td in a f-150. Can you imagine the fuel efficiency? It would probably get close to 30 mpg in a two wheel drive that is unloaded. I think people would buy them up fast especially if they were quiet and had enough power to tow a medium sized trailer. Just like somebody said in here above: not everyone needs a truck that can haul and pull close to 20,000 pounds.

it really dowsnt take much to reach 20k anymore. think about it.....
for arguments sake we will say the dually weighs in at 8k then you put a gooseneck behind it and its around 4k.your alreay at 12k. then the load...60 - 70hp tractor weighing in at 8k-10k on the conservative side you would be right at 20k not including whatever implement you need.

I like the idea of a diesel in light duty pickups. However the 5.4 is already made to tow a medium trailer. I'm curious though, I believe dodge makes a medium size 6 cylinder different from that big cummins 6. What does it get fro gas mileage. The idea that a light duty pickup even with a small 6 cylinder diesel get 30mpg seems lofty to me. I think the best you could expect out of a truck is 25 best.

I would seriously look at half ton Ford diesel in my next truck unless the 6.4 just absolutely WOWs me.

My boss has a 2006 Trail Rated Jeep Liberty CRD. That is one sweet running little SUV and I think it has something like a 5000lbs tow rating. I'm not sure who makes the engine, but I don't think it's Cummins maybe it's Mercedes. I would love to see Ford use something like that in the Ranger or Escape. Something a little bigger would probably even work well in a F150.

The 4.5 is suppose to go into the F150. Ford is working on producing the 4.5 on there own from across the pond. Same plant the Landrover diesel engines are manufactured. (the name escapes me at the moument)

The 4.5 is supose to be a cg block.

I read this from the Diesel Forecast.

Ford was saying that the 4.5 from International weighed to much. (I think it was the VT265)
