Ford Power Stroke wins Ward's diesel shootout

Wards Auto has crowned its king of the 2011 diesel pickup engine crowd. The editors pitted the mills in the 2011 Dodge Ram HD, Ford Super Duty and the GMC Sierra Denali HD against each other in one epic battle royale at the Robert Bosch LLC test track, and while each of the three oil-burners did a smart job of hauling payloads and the like, Wards clearly favored one above the rest. The publication said that the powerhouse 6.7-liter turbocharged V8 in the Super Duty was the clear winner, despite being the most expensive of the three engines.

The editors chose the Ford over its competitors because of its ridiculous 800 pound-feet of torque, quietness and effortless towing, even though the 6.6-liter turbocharged Duramax V8 in the GMC produced faster 0-60 times in tests. Interestingly enough, skipped the Powerstroke in the Super Duty in favor of the Duramax Sierra. Given the obsessively thorough testing by Mike Levine and the rest of the crew, we're a little more inclined to agree with those results. Still, you know what they say about opinions and elbows.

Ward's press release

...Ultimately, the judges picked Ford's Power Stroke V-8 for its lightweight construction, innovative materials, sophisticated aftertreatment, clever packaging and even its ability to squeal the tires while hauling 10,000 lbs. Ford will receive its Diesel Shootout award at the Ward's 10 Best Engines banquet in January 2011.
