The 6.7L Power Stroke® Turbo Diesel incorporates a Smart Exhaust Brake function. When activated with a button on the instrument panel, the engine brake restricts the turbocharger’s exhaust flow to generate back pressure and slow the vehicle. The main benefit is greater control while traveling downhill, regardless of vehicle load or road grade. Also, because the engine brake helps minimize having to apply pedal pressure, brake fade and lining wear are reduced, lowering the cost of maintenance. Three settings are available: On, Off, and Auto. The Auto setting modulates engine braking as needed to help maintain the speed you want based on accelerator and brake pedal use....more...less

The Ford TorqShift® SelectShift® 6-speed automatic transmission delivers high-torque performance and dependability. Big, strong gears can easily handle the heavy torque demands of the turbo diesel and gas engines. Fewer rpm are required because the torque converter locks up at lower speeds. The TorqShift offers SelectShift and Tow/Haul features. SelectShift has two modes: Progressive Range Select that limits the range of gears to lock out overdrive, plus Full Manual control. Tow/Haul selects the gear that minimizes gear hunting on uphills. On a downhill, it keeps the vehicle from upshifting and gaining speed, reducing reliance on brake pressure to slow down.
