2015 Ford Power Stroke: 440 hp and 860 lb-ft of torque

Jaw dropping factory horsepower, torque, and towing

The quest for dominance in the torque, horsepower, and towing categories continues in the diesel pickup truck world between Ram and Ford. The plot has thickened today as Ford announced the much-anticipated figures for its second generation 6.7L Power Stroke V8 turbo diesel engine slated for the 2015 Ford Super Duty trucks. The current Power Stroke puts out 400 hp and 800 lb-ft of torque. As you can imagine, Ford upped the power and torque figures of their new heavy duty trucks to a class-leading 440 hp and class-leading 860 lb-ft of torque, indeed becoming the most powerful diesel engine you can buy in a consumer-grade truck - a bold claim we predicted when covering the 2015 F-450 in the February 2014 issue. Our initial predictions of 425 hp and 875 lb-ft of torque were close, but actually underestimated horsepower and overestimated torque. These power figures stand for all Super Duty models from the F-250 to the F-450.

Towing:
The 2015 Ford F-450 will up its maximum towing capacity by 6,500 pounds for a class-leading 31,200 pounds; gross combined weight rating increases by 7,000 pounds to a class-leading 40,000 pounds.

The 2015 Ford F-350 will up its maximum towing capacity to 26,500 pounds; gross combined weight rating increases by 5,000 pounds to a 35,000 pounds.

Will this be enough for Ford?

Jason, that is more torque than my 500 cummins in my freight liner.has. You better check with cummins, Chrysler is messing up the air intake on the Dodge. Causing engine to fail. Yes guys let's get off of the motor stuff here. We are talking about ENGINES.

Im not a Ford hater. But If what you write is true...then why did Ford out sale everyone with the 6.0 engine. What I piece of crap that was. After the first year, everyone knew it was junk! But yet, year after year Ford stayed on top of sale!?! Why? Fleet sales. I had a buddy that was a fleet manager. He had 48 6.0L in his motor pool. I asked him straight up why his company kept buying junk? It all came down to they were the cheapest by thousands...since they always got rid of the trucks before warranties ended...they kept buying them. Thank God Ford finally killed the 6.0L!!

I still am trying to understand why ford gets to compare a 450 to others 350 models. I was not happy with the first test and still don't think it belongs. How about sticking with apples to apples like always done in the past.

I think my 6.7 cummins in my 08 puts it to shame. 700hp 1350FT/lbs TORQUE. International should of insisted on sticking with the 7.3l instead ford has had nothing but junk ever since. 6.0 liter? Need I say more? You will never get the torque out of a 8 cylinder diesel ford as you can a inline six cummins.

Still couldn't get me to buy one even if they nearly gave it away!

Will the original motor go over 100k? Probably not! #emissions nightmare!

A true truck guy will appreciate any truck regardless of make or model, if you don't like Ford than don't troll around. plain and simple.

It would be a lot better if it was getting 20+mpg on the hwy.

James: He speaks from experience, unlike me he continues along the diesel mechanic tradition in our family. Also, my 99 Powerstroke has 327K with no work done to it whatsoever. Andrew: He wasn't bashing Powerstroke, it just looks that way from how he typed it. Thomas: Before you insult someones intelligence, learn proper grammar and punctuation.

They made all those changes and only 860 torque? Weak.

I would agree that the F150 is the best selling truck.

I wish the manufacturers would state the actual HP, torque when measured at the wheels instead of an estimated number at the crank.

The best thing Ford could do is reinstate the 7.3 .

They have too keep changing the turbo radiator and they still have the same look from 99

VM Morti is a 50:50 Joint Venture between GM and Fiat Group(Chrysler). Cummins has had a long relationship Chrysler since the LCF commercial trucks, and then the trucks since 1985.

Still not enough to beat a duramax! Haha!

I love ford. Always have. There the best trucks built. Period. Cummins is an overrated joke. But I will say I was hoping for more. Just a mild factory tune and the faggy ram will be caught up to these numbers.

Semis make twice the torque and will pull 80000lbs all day every day and can go a million miles with out an overhaul these pickups are still toys when compared to a semi.

Great starting point on the power eh Dylan hope. Can't wait for the tunes to start rolling out.

i would love to drive the ford if they have fixed their emission sensor problems. I have driven 2012 350 which is awesome in personal opinion. also driven 2008 chevy duramax also awesome. Just have not driven a new Ram cause Ram is own brand and brining new ideas to the 3/4-1 ton segments. without competition from Ram and Chevy/GMC stagnation would develop. Just remember it was cummins in a dodge Ram that made Ford take look and ask International to develop a better powerstroke. My personal wish is that soon diesels will not have emission equipment that they have now. I would love to see 3/4 or 1 ton truck get 25+mpg.

The weight ratings are what's being compared. Ford utilizes the F450 pickup for these weights because you really need the F450's much larger frame, brakes, suspension, tires and rear end to safely and reliably handle 30,000+ lbs on a daily basis. A one ton truck at this weight rating is really good only for the rv crowd that need to tow heavy but not every day. But no need to worry. Both Ford and Ram have 1.5 and 2 ton commercial cab chassis trucks that can handle these weights and more all day long. Ford simply put a pickup bed on their 1.5 ton (F450) commercial cab chassis truck and added all the luxury features to consumerize it. Ram can do the same if and when they choose to do so. But for these weights a F450 is what you really want and need.

Clueless comment!!!


Maybe go do some research than join the crowd when you have something sensible to share?

Actually this is the very definition of trolling.

maybe you shouldn't type something you have no clue about.  The 6.7's have been very reliable, particularly after working out the early bugs...

LOL, 860 is weak...


With all that's been reworked, I'm sure Ford left room in the tank for a Simple Remap when RAM and GM respond.  I have a feeling RAM and Ford will be hitting 1000lbft in the coming year or 2?

It's actually not estimated at the Crank...It's Exact
