More production of Super Duty diesel

Ford has now confirmed that its Chihuahua Engine Plant (CEP) in Mexico will produce over 750,000 diesel engines a year.

According to plant manager, Enrique Araiza, CEP's new Plant 11 facility has capacity to assemble 400,000 of Ford's 4.4-litre V8 diesel engines a year, as well as 200,000upa of the 6.7-litre V8 diesel.

Both engines are completely new and make use of compacted graphite iron (CGI) cylinder blocks.

Araiza forecast that production capacity for the 6.7-litre unit will be expanded to 380,000upa, bringing total diesel engine capacity at the plant to over 750,000 upa.
--------------------
This means that the 4.4-litre diesel will come in more models. F-150 ?

What else would they use that engine for if not for a half-ton? This is another example of Ford thinking ahead. I'll bet the take rate will be high.

If the new 4.4 is as good out the chute as the 6.7 has been, I may have to trade Debbies truck for a new F150 powered by one.
