Ford may finally build a light-duty V-6 diesel for its pickup trucks and
SUVs. Ford and partner PSA jointly developed a new 2.7-liter diesel
V-6, produced at Dagenham, United Kingdom.

Direct-injection common-rail turbodiesels offer a 30 percent
fuel-economy improvement over comparable gas engines. Ford had been
considering a V-6 diesel from Navistar, which builds the Power Stroke
for Ford’s heavy-duty pickups, or from Cummins.

The 24-valve 60-degree V-6 diesel would fit U.S. vehicles such as the Explorer.
