Ford has just released seven new high quality videos about the new 2011 F-Series Super Duty (and its all-new 6.7-liter Power Stroke V8) that debuted last week at the Texas State Fair. Hosted by Mike Rowe from Dirty Jobs, the short programs examine the the new truck, its powertrain and incredible capability.

If you like trucks, diesels or just great engineering, these spots are all worth a look. They take you through the basics of the (complex) new diesel engine, as well as innovative features like Live Drive PTO (Power Take Off), which allows auxiliary equipment like snowplows or salt spreaders to be powered through the transmission.

The only thing Ford hasn’t told us about the all-new 2011 Super Duty is exactly how much power the new Power Stroke 6.7-liter V8 motor makes.

    Sounds like one tuff truck! How does the transmission hold up to the new power plant?

  • Bill Falotico

    I just spent 60 grand for the 2010 F350….Did I get screwed?? It looks like I’ll regret my decision…I just sold my 2000 7.3 excursion with 200K miles…No major problems…Hope the 6.4 is better than the 6.0….But it looks like the 6.7 is kick ass… Well, I guess I’ll see…Hope MPG is better on the 6.7 . 8-10 Non towing sucks ass…Cant wait to hook up my 40 foot travel trailer (12K lbs) to see what kind of MPG I’ll get then…

    I have a 2008 f350 dually 6.4 and get 8.2 mpg no mater what,it makes my 6.0 look loke a economizer and my old 7.3 like a fual sipper.I sure hope they get it wright this time because my 6.4 will be the last ford truck I own.

    I have a 2008 f250 6.4 and I get 8 to 10 mpg we have had about 20 f250 diesels and I hate the 6.4 it will be my last ford truck it has no power and its fuel milage is like driving a simi truck . I have always been a ford man but not no more Ill have a duramax from here on out. power stroke always meant power and lug to me but not any more it means no fuel milage and no power. Im probaly the most frustrated ford owner in the country

  • Brian

    I have a 2009 F250 lariat Supercrew with the 6.4L and I am getting 14+MPG around town. I have heard adding cetane booster will increase you MPG and also getting the latest flash may help. Otherwise, need to avoid those jack rabbit starts…:-) Have to say it drags my 8000 lb boat around with ease compared to the 5.4L gas engine. So far love the truck.

  • russ

    I’ll keep my 7.3 going as long as possible. By the way you 6.4 owners, check out the aftermarket. Buy a Diesel Power magazine and get the subscription. Many 6.4 owners have doubled power and mileage with a few aftermarket parts.

    I have driven these new 6.7 trucks and let me tell you!!! They are a different story, It pulls like no other and power to spare! It will literally destroy the rear tires if that is what you are after! Great job guys!!!
