This was bantered about a little bit almost a year ago. It was a fun possibility but it doesn't appear that Navistar North America is using technology from their South American subsidiary. Who knows though? I never had complete closure on this. Read the link below for more info.

My calcs show the 6.07TCA would be about 175hp and about 375 lbft. That pretty good for a small diesle like that and would be tons of power in a F150...bump the hp up some american engineering and then we are talking.

Those things are ancient. MWM was a German industrial corporation that went broke back in the 60's. They had an operation in Brazil that was able to stay in business, and they became a pretty large supplier of truck and industrial engines in South America. They were (and looks like they still are) good at stuffing their engines in U.S. trucks as replacements for gas engines to make them more suitable for South American markets. There used to be large numbers of 60's era 2.5 ton Dodge trucks running around in Brazil and Argentina with MWM diesels in them. The MWM was supposed to be reliable, but not too powerful. Pretty dirty I would imagine. International bought them a few years ago.

I heard a rumor that the F-150 was going to come with a 6 cylinder diesel as an option......available in 08.....which might make sense if the other rumor I heard was true.......that Toyota was going to start offering a diesel as an option in 08.

I hope the 6.4 works out well for everyone, both FMC and the new owners. I wonder if any of the OEMs will ever field, even as an option, a truck that's badged "Powered by CAT"...

That F-450 looks neat but only comes as a dually? Not that I need that much truck, heck my F-350 is more than plenty for what I do. The only reason I got it is that I may one day be pulling a large travel trailer. The one the wife and kids liked at this past spring's camper show was 9400# dry weight, just a tad too much for the F-250....
