Those are class-leading figures.
Ford released specifications overnight for its 2018 F-Series Super Duty trucks, claiming best-in-class bragging rights in five areas: horsepower, torque, towing, gooseneck towing, and payload. Output of its 6.7-liter Power Stroke V8 turbodiesel has increased to 450 horsepower, up 10 from 2017, and it now makes peak torque of 935 pound-feet, which is also 10 more in the torque wars as truck manufacturers keep inching toward 1,000. Upgrades to the 6.7-liter diesel include cylinder hea
Its impressive fuel economy figures are a breeze to achieve.
Toyota touts its new turbodiesel engines, which cuts weight, fuel use and emissions.
Nope, the diesel engine never really did go out of style for Audi. Now, the German automaker has released a video reminding the world of its persistence with the oil-burners and is commemorating the Silver Anniversary of Audi's first commitment to turbodiesels in 1989. And, yes, there are some road racers shown in the clip, so some of those bad boys actually move pretty well.
As diesels continue to account for a minority of cars sold by Audi in the US, the German automaker and Volkswagen unit continues to expand its diesel models in Europe for the sake of fuel efficiency. Early this year, Audi will debut its new A4, A5 and A6 variants i
Ram has used Cummins engines in its heavy duty trucks since 1989, and it is the only pickup truck brand to use products from the Indiana-based engine maker. With the announcement that the next Nissan Titan will also use a Cummins powerplant, and a Jonathon Ramsey
Toyota might be content to eke out an
A multinational team led by General Motors' Torino Engineering Center and supported by GM India Engineering has announced that production of a 1.0-liter three-cylinder turbodiesel engine will start this June. The compact engine, which GM claims will offer "best-in-class fuel efficiency and performance for its size," will crank out 103 pound-feet of torque at 1,750 rpm and a reasonable 74 pound-feet at 1,250 rpm.
While a few small boutique motorcycle manufacturers have dipped a toe or two into diesel engines for motorcycles, the established brands have barely ever offered even a hint of interest in oil-burners. At least, not until now. Yamaha has apparently filed patents for a new series of motorcycle-size turbodiesel engines in both inline-four and twin-cylinder configurations.

Here is a story from Wheels in Canada where two people, a father and his 14-year-old daughter drove from one end of Canada to the other, specifically from Halifax to Vancouver. No big deal, right? Wrong... they did it using only 89 gallons of diesel fuel. The vehicle used to generate this low fuel consumption was a last-generation Smart. You may be aware that we will be getting the newest version of the vehicle soon in the U.S. Unfortunately, we won't
Simple, clever, fun. That's the philosophy behind the vehicle you see pictured above, the Loremo (pronounced lo-ray-mo which is short for Low Resistance Mobile). Of course, there's nothing simple about designing and building a car, but there has certainly been a large need for cleverness to meet our current standard of "fun".
