13. Ford 300 CID I6 Engine

Even though the 300 CID I6 engine isn’t as popular or well-known as other units on this list, it deserves a place here. This was Ford’s base truck engine for over 30 years, from 1965 to 1996. You could find this engine in millions of Blue Oval trucks and SUVs. Introduced in the mid-60s, the 300 was an evolution of the regular line of Ford’s inline six cylinders.

With around 150 HP and 250 lb-ft of torque, it had more than enough power for F150 trucks. Ford even used this engine in bigger trucks. But, they equipped it with a better intake system to produce more torque for towing more weight. The secret of this engine was its simplicity and high-quality engineering, making it durable and tough. This is something that truck owners appreciate.

Interestingly, Ford discontinued the 300 CID more than 20 years after its production. However, they still use this engine in some UPS trucks. This only proves the quality of the original concept.

14. 6.7-Liter Power Stroke V8

The only diesel engine on this list is the relatively new Power Stroke V8, which Ford produced from 2011 to 2015 to install in their trucks. International Harvester produced the previous generation of Ford diesel engines. This resulted in Ford getting many complaints about the engine and its quality. So, the company decided to design the next generation in-house to iron out all its flaws.

The result was the 2011 Power Stroke. It was better and tougher than any other V8 diesel engine on the market. The fuel and intake systems were fixed. The new powerplant delivered 390 HP and 738 lb-ft of torque. Besides its big power and great performance, the 6.7-Liter Power Stroke V8 delivered decent fuel economy, was quiet and provided power anywhere in its rev range. After the 2015 upgrade, which included a new turbo and engine management system, the fantastic V8 diesel delivered 440 HP and a massive 860 lb-ft of torque.

Any car fan will tell you that a car is only as good as its engine. The engines on this list can add value to any vehicle with their power and strength.
