Just as we reported back in June, FoMoCo's decided to embrace a higher power of diesel engine, and on Tuesday said it's going to drop a new version of its diesel Super Duty pickup as a 2008 model, releasing it into the wilds of the market in early 2007. The Dearborn-based automaker already sells diesels in about three-quarters of the Super Duty trucks, but from what we've gleaned from the carefully worded press release, the new 6.4-liter PowerStroke (that sounds dirty!) diesel would be bigger and badder than the 6.0-liter V8 in the current model. We're told there's things more important than the size, so the other deets are just as important — like how the new engine will become the first diesel engine in the U.S. market to feature a high-precision fuel injection system, and when combined with new low-sulfur fuel, will make the engine more quiet than standard diesels and, according to Ford, reduce emissions to the level of a gasoline engine. Toby Keith's gotta be a happy camper today, right?
