Texas state fair

Worth noting is that Ford just tweeted that it will have some kind of announcement about changes to the Super Duty's turbo-diesel 6.7-liter Power Stroke V-8 engine. Ford has been quiet about this one, which usually means there aren't many significant changes or there could be a huge surprise waiting for us at the fair. Last year we got some new luxury trim packages; maybe this year we'll get more towing capacity to better compete with Ram HD.

Some of the comments I have seen are:

A warranty that is actually covered by Ford
An extra Bosch fuel pump in every glove box
And that Ford actually owns Cummins

I am actually excited to see what the announcement is. Hopefully 900 lb ft of torque, or a better fuel system

I think I read in the new diesel power magazine that the 6.7 will be able to run on WVO. It's the first time EPA has allowed it or something. Interesting article. I can get y'all a page number tomorrow but that's prolly their big announcement.

I don think the engine is capable if doing it in its current configuration. Our fleet manager has heard several times that the 6.7l is slated for major re-design and/or replacement after 2014. Havent been able to get any specifics or confirmation yet, so it may just be rumors..

The weird thing is though aren't there guys that already have 2014 trucks? Wouldn't they notice the difference?

For ME it would be hard to believe that ford would be dropping the 6.7. I could see them putting it in the F650 and 750's. I would like to see a better fuel filtration system, better rear shock and whole towing package! And I know this sounds funny b/c the trucks aren't cheap , but quit low end parts on these trucks. I. e rancho shocks.
