4. Ford 6.8-Liter Power Stroke V8
The only diesel engine on this list is the 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, but they weren’t good. This resulted in Ford getting many complaints about that engine and its quality. So, the company decided to design the next generation in-house and iron out all its flaws. Although it isn’t a brand new V8, you still can find them on dealer lots all over America and with low mileage, too
The 2011 Power Stroke was tougher than any other V8 diesel engine on the market. They fixed the fuel and intake systems and the new powerplant delivered 390 HP and 738 lb-ft of torque. Besides big power and great performance, the 6.7-Liter Power Stroke V8 delivered efficient fuel economy. It was also quiet running and powered 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 massive 860 lb-ft of torque.
