The 2015 Ford Power Stroke will make its debut sometime in the spring of next year. A lot of thought and work has been put into this new 2015 truck, however there is still some work to be done. If you know anything about working vehicles then you understand that most complete changes and creations cannot be completed all in one day.
When this truck debuts next spring, you will notice that the upgraded 6.7 liter Power Stroke V8, will have improved changes that will not disappoint you. The Ford Power Stroke is currently ratted at 400 hp and 800 pounds-feet of torque.
The engine will receive a new GT37 turbocharger along with a larger 88 millimeter compressor wheel in which will take place of the previous GT32. The compressor will be a way for a larger amount of air force to travel into the cylinders, which in turn will improve the trucks performance. Ford also redesigned the the oil and cooling lines. You can now control the engine exhaust braking by a simple button on the dashboard.
Do you like what you’re reading? well, there is more. The Ford Power Stroke is also getting a new high pressure fuel pump with injectors that will give way to more fuel and better combustion. Since the engine will have more power,other changes had to be made in order to help the engine handle that added power. With that being said, the engine will have a brand new five layer head gasket, a new four layer exhaust manifold gasket, a stronger crankshaft, and last but not least, stronger piston assemblies.
The automatic transmission which is a six speed is assembled with a stronger torque converter. With all of the changes and new things on this truck, it is said to create performance that is quieter than most trucks. Ford says that the upgraded diesel engine creates much more power, more robust and then of course more efficient than any of the trucks before, however they are still patiently waiting for the horsepower and torque figures. Don’t worry, The wait will not last much longer.
