Can Ford do it?

Do you think that Ford will get this new engine right? With all the new epa mandates, there sure is a steep learning curve. Will they test and fix the problems before releasing it on the public? With navistar there sure seems to be a gap between a released product and what they ended up with just a few years down the line. Yes atleast they fixed them, but with thousands of miles of testing, i would think some of the problems would have came upand benn solved. Can Ford do it right in house???

I have faith in them. After all they do have a lot riding on it and they know it.

Has anyone heard anything about Ford using their Volvo connection as part of the Scorpion development team?

All I have heard about Volvo is they are 2 separate divisions, and have no connection what so ever.

I read that there are some 6.7s on the road already - Canada maybe?

Please correct me if I am wrong.

I plan to hold out for a new PSD. I am interested in the performance of these new diesels.

Ford just has to make these engines B100 capable, IMO.

Ford has plenty of diesel technology being used in Europe, and I hope some of that experience is being shared on this project. When this new power plant is successful, I would hope they will expand their diesel program here to include cars.
