Why dont Ford use Cummings engines in their trucks.


Ford currently offers the Ford-designed and built 6.7L Power Stroke® V8 for the F-250, F-350 and F-450 Super Duty® pickup trucks and F-350, F-450 and F-550 Super Duty chassis cabs. We offer the Cummins ISB 6.7L diesel for our F-650 and F-750 commercial trucks.

Normand G Please, don't use an engine from an outside source, we all know what happen with that experience, keep the powertrain an in house equipement, for the one comparing the Cummin's that Dodge use and the ISB that Ford uses in the medium series, let me bring up the big difference in the two, mainly the light duty(Dodge) has front engine gears and the medium duty has rear gears drive, a big difference ! ! !

William The 6.7 Ford diesel has been the best diesel engine out in years for the 250 to 550 trucks. Many of the fleets I take care of have well over 110k on them already and they just don't break. A dramatic fuel economy improvement over the 6.4 and no fuel contamination problems except for one customer that poured his def in the fuel tank. Don't do that, it didn't like it!
