Torque is the brute force that gets you up and moving from idle with no strain or sweat, whether on a level paved road or up the steep hill of rocks and dirt on an off-road work site. Horsepower supplies the muscle that keeps you moving at speed over the course of a workday, whether you’re hauling a large payload in the pickup bed or towing a huge trailer. With best-in-class available 1,050 lb.-ft. of torque at 1,600 rpm and best-in-class 475 horsepower at 2,600 rpm, the third-generation 6.7L Power Stroke® V8 Turbo Diesel engine on the 2021 Ford Super Duty® reigns supreme in both categories, ensuring you have the power you need to get the job done.

The Super Duty power takeoff (PTO) offers more torque than any other heavy-duty truck, giving you more power for upfits just when you need it.** For added efficiency, the 10-bolt PTO mounting pattern provides a more secure mount for larger PTO devices to take greater advantage of this increased torque.

No surprise that Super Duty® for 2021 features top-rated performance with a powerful line of available engines. There’s the available 7.3L gas V8 as well as the available 6.7L PowerStroke® V8 Turbo Diesel, both with best-in-class power ratings.*

The 6.7L Power Stroke® Turbo Diesel incorporates a driver-activated engine-exhaust brake. It restricts the turbocharger’s exhaust flow to generate back pressure and slow the vehicle, providing 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.

Some operating conditions, such as long idling, don’t generate enough engine heat for the diesel to automatically burn off soot in the diesel particulate filter. That’s where available Operator-Commanded Regeneration with Active Inhibit (diesel only) comes in. When the warning light comes on, pushing the activation button raises the exhaust temperature to burn off the soot, after which the exhaust temperature reverts to normal. The active inhibit feature allows delay of regeneration when the vehicle is sitting over combustible materials, such as dry leaves or grass. Once in a safe place, the driver can manually start the regeneration process. Recommended for commercial applications.
