ford cat

so do any of you think that ford should have gone with cat. What I mean to say is dodge has the inline six commins and am not to say is better but it fills more powerful then other diesels. But do you think that ford and caterpillar should heaved made one or should make one for smaller trucks like we have .

If they could, I'm sure they would. If Ford trucks had Caterpillar diesels there would be no reason to buy a Dodge...

or Chevy!! I certainly would have loved to have an Inline 6 Cat, I did like the power of the one I drove in a dump truck. it was pretty fast for such a large vehicle. I like my powerstroke, but I think Cat does make a better engine than international

This is fact not fiction cat has no i mean no fuel milage at all thats the only draw back to cat. We used to have 5 trucks 3 cats and 2 cummins and the cummins eat the cat up on fuel milage there for the cat pulled like hell but it could not match in milage.

I would not count CAT out just yet they have an engine right now that is a 6.6 liter, ACERT 6.6, it is an inline 6 and dimensionaly the size of a cummins 6.7 or 5.9 The reason i think you may see them in a small truck down the road is the fact that they are all set to cover tier 4 emissions with no use of an EGR, they use lots of boost and compression and multiple injection events and timing. Plus they still use wastegate turbocharger. I think it would be awsome to see this 6.6 in a pickup currently it powers the new D6T dozer.

That would be a waste of a perfectly good engine. And one very expensive truck!

This may or may not be true but as far as I knew at one point (I think 99 or years around there) when buying a new ford you could choose to get a CAT motor in it rather than the powerstroke. The only reason I have heard this is because when my girlfriends dad was looking to buy his truck around 97 to 99 he remembers having that option.
