Another new article on the 6.7L... With a sneak peak under the hood...
 
The picture does not show much, but does answer the question of the taller hood...

PickupTrucks.com: Caught! Underhood Pic of Ford's 6.7-liter Scorpion Diesel V-8

it probably has the bigger radiator to compensate for the larger engine, higher engine op temps and more aggressive egr usage in the engine. wonder how many egrs it will have 3,4,5 anyone's guess now along with dpf,diesel oxidation unit, horse pi** injection (or should i say urea injection??) the epa is putting a strangle hold on these things, the engines price will probably be another 2-4 grand on top of the 6.4 price now.

Due to the addition of SCR (horse pi** injection as you call it), it is expected significantly to reduce the amount of exhaust gases that are recirculated back into the system...

Exactly!!!

I wish I had a six speed transmission.:-tap

Nice find. A radiator that is 50% bigger than the 6.0s is huge and looking at the 6.4s radiators it's clear that raising the hood was the only way to squeeze in more.

The 6-speed will really help and will the main thing behind the claimed 3mpg improvement, though they didn't mention that that would be highway.

However, none of this is enough to make me wait as the 6.4L and 5-speed Torqshift have proven to be rugged. First year for the Scorpion is for the brave, but maybe it'll go smoothly.

Finally, seems like Ford are deep into the power battle. In which case, expect the finished product to produce 10bhp more than the 390bhp quoted in the article ;)

they are testing at much higher levels then that........... those numbers are what they will de-tune it to for emmisions and reliability

People are forgetting that you can get both a six speed and the fuel mileage increase right now.


Get the stick shift.....

it looks like it's tilted backwards..... were did they get the room for that?

Something is fishy about that picture. The radiator is at an angle that doesn't look like it would allow for much else. If you look at the many radiators crammed in the 6.4's, there would be no room for those in the nose of this truck. Not to mention the lack of space for the engine. Something just isn't right here.

This is my first post here, I'm coming over from The Diesel Stop. The more I looked at this picture, I noticed it looks a lot like the V10. The airbox looks the same, and the radiator looks almost identical. Look at a picture of a 2008 V10, then look at the spy photo, they look pretty close to me.

Something doesn't seem right to me. The "effort" to reduce exhaust emissions is resulting in the engines getting worse fuel mileage and now having to add fertilizer, which costs money to produce as well put in your truck, to keep it all clean.
I wonder if anyone has ever heard about diminishing returns. Yea, we are getting cleaner exhaust, but how much more is being produced since we have to put more fuel in the trucks and to produce and transort urea that will now have to be added?? Can someone explain it, because it's not making any sense to me.

I was thinking the same thing, unless they made the engine compartment longer? Which I doubt. Or maybe they are using some sort of funky radiator thats angled? (Is that even possible:-huh)

rollerstud98 11-18-2008 08:39 PM

the current rads are tilted back as well, looks to me to be on the same angle even but that one is just longer

mnmwhit 11-26-2008 11:08 PM

that would be kewl in an Exedition.....I was hoping for the 4.4 to come out and go in an Expy but this engine would be a real hero
