August 27, 2005A friend of mine that works in a ford dealership told me that in late 2006 into 2007 they are coming out with a 6.4 liter twin turbo diesel to replace the dicked up 6.0 they run now. Any one else hear anything?

August 27, 2005Havn't heard nothing. Dad had a 2002 I think, or 01, and It was awesome. That was the 7.3. Don't know why the hell they went with the 6.0, I guess cause all the gas motors were weak, they decided to make the desel weak also
August 27, 2005why are we getting so many ford threads?!?
sounds like a rumor
August 27, 2005I've heard the same rumor. But just that, a rumor.
August 27, 2005Yes, Ford is getting a 6.4 Twin turbo engine. International is building it for them just like they built the 7.3 and the 6.0. We work close with International and have been told they are building the engine. We hope to have a module out by the time the engines are available. The only question is, will Ford screw with the programming on the 6.4 and mess it up just like the 6.0. If you get a 6.0 straight from International, it will have good power and no problems. But after Ford gets it they change the progaming, decrease the power so it won't rip right through the tranny and sell it to the public.
August 27, 2005^^^learn something new each day!
August 28, 2005I hope Ford plans on putting something behind that motor other than the joke of a tranny they have now. If they program that twin turbo diesel any close to the way it should be then look out cuz they will be recalling the trannys left and right...good luck whoever buys the twin 6.4!
August 28, 2005you know this is the chevy Gmc site so why are you asking about a ford here
you will proble get more info over at the
diesel stop its a good ford diesel site
October 2, 2005i guess thats why you can get those fords for so cheap! you get what you pay for!
October 3, 2005Those 6.4s should be an awesome motor. Its definitly interesting how the diesel competition is heating up between the Big 3. Frankly I think we have enough power we dont need any more but thats probaly just me.
October 3, 2005if all the roumors are right it could be 4 or 5 with toyota and nissan in 07 and 08 more competion means better prduct for us
October 7, 2005I just hope thereare a GM an Ford left both are in financial trouble. GM has way to many cars for the market place an has lost market share. Same way with Ford. Toytota a major force in the automotive world nowdays. If GM an Ford lose the truck market it will be curtains lets hope that doesnt happen.
