Ford is teasing an announcement next week at the State Fair of Texas about its heavy-duty trucks and the Powerstroke 6.7-liter diesel engine.
Ford released the image seen above along with a statement saying that the brand will be at the “Texas State Fair to talk Super Duty 6.7-liter Power Stroke V8 diesel news.”
Diesel has been proliferating the pickup truck segment lately with Nissan and Ram jumping in with half-ton diesels while GM will sell midsize trucks with diesel power. Ford has yet to make any changes to its engine lineup, and still only offers diesel power in its Heavy Duty lineup of trucks.
Ford says that this announcement will particularly pertain to its heavy-duty pickups, so a diesel half-ton announcement is unlikely.
AutoGuide will be on the ground at the Texas State Fair, so check back next week for full coverage of Ford’s diesel news.
