F-650® SD DIESEL STRAIGHT FRAME
6.7L POWER STROKE® V8 TURBO DIESEL ENGINE
The 6.7L Power Stroke® V8 Turbo Diesel engine oﬀers standard 270 HP/700 lb.-ft. of torque and optional 300 HP/725 lb.-ft. and 330 HP/750 lb.-ft. power ratings.20 The unique inverse-ﬂow design locates the turbocharger between the cylinder heads and the top of the block, with the exhaust manifold inboard and close to the turbo, for faster air displacement and greater power. The driver-activated engine exhaust braking restricts exhaust ﬂow to create back pressure for seamless braking and reduced brake wear on downhill grades.
FORD TORQSHIFT® HD 6-SPEED AUTOMATIC DOUBLE OVERDRIVE TRANSMISSION
The Ford TorqShift® HD 6-speed automatic transmission is specially designed with a three-plate/two-stage torque converter and gearsets strengthened with extra pinion gears to handle the heavy demands of the V8 turbo diesel and V8 gas engines. The SelectShift® feature has two modes: Progressive Range Select that limits the range of gears to lock out overdrive, plus Full Manual control. Another feature is Tow/Haul. On an uphill, it selects the gear that minimizes gear hunting; on a downhill, it prevents upshifting and an increase in speed, reducing reliance on brake pressure to slow down. And the TorqShift® oﬀers the available Live-Drive Power Takeoﬀ provision with stationary and mobile modes.
OPERATOR-COMMANDED REGENERATION WITH ACTIVE INHIBIT (DIESEL)
The Ford Power Stroke® Turbo Diesel oﬀers features to monitor and initiate diesel particulate ﬁlter regeneration. When exhaust soot builds up in the diesel particulate ﬁlter (DPF), the engine will need to clear the ﬁlter of soot through a process called active regeneration. The Power Stroke® Turbo Diesel oﬀers an available Active Regen Control that delays this auto regeneration if the truck is idling over combustible material such as dry grass. When idling, especially for extended periods of time, the engine doesn't generate enough heat to automatically clear the DPF. That's when the standard Manual Regen initiation feature comes in. A light on the instrument panel alerts the driver of the need for regeneration, and pushing a button starts the process of raising the exhaust temperature to burn oﬀ the soot in the DPF.10
