F-150-diesel-6

Ram is the only remaining manufacturer to offer both a manual and automatic transmission in the heavy-duty diesel pickup segment.
Ford’s new 3.0-liter Power Stroke diesel engine produces 250 horsepower and 440 lb-ft of torque. It should be available by the time you read this. The 3.0-liter Power Stroke diesel-powered F-150 could be an ideal solution for those who want sedan-like fuel economy and the ability to tow on weekends.
Ram’s 6.4-liter Hemi engine makes a pretty strong case for gasoline power in a medium-to-light-heavyweight application. With 410 horsepower and 429 lb-ft of torque, it can tow up to 16,320 pounds. Above right: It could be argued that the addition of a Cummins engine to a Dodge truck in 1988 started the diesel horsepower race. Today, the High Output version of the engine is capable of 385 horsepower and 930 lb-ft of torque when paired with the Aisin six-speed automatic transmission.
