Power Stroke is a line of diesel engines found in Ford Diesel trucks, Ford Excursion SUVs, Ford Econoline vans, Ford LCF commercial vehicles and the Brazilian Ford Ranger. The V8 engines were produced by Navistar International Corp. until 2010 when Ford decided to build their diesel engine completely in-house.
The 7.3L Power Stroke Engine was introduced alongside the 7.3L IDI Engine. You could say that the 7.3L Power Stroke is based on the design of the IDI, but the engines are complete opposites by nature of their operation. By 1999, International had built 1 millionth of the 7.3L Power Stroke engines. The 2 millionth 7.3L Power Stroke engine rolled off the production line in 2002. The 7.3L Power Stroke Engine failed to meet strict federal emissions regulations, and was retired after the 2003 model year. The 7.3L Power Stroke engine laid the foundation for Ford’s prosperity in the diesel engine & work truck market. The 7.3L Power Stroke Engine gives new meaning to the terms performance, reliability, and longevity. It is not uncommon for a 7.3L Power Stroke to serve well past the 500,000 mile mark without requiring major repair. The 7.3L Power Stroke Engine for many owners is a million mile motor. The performance figures for the 7.3L Power Stroke are relatively low by today’s standards, but the 7.3L Power Stroke Engine is largely responsible for fueling the race between Ford, Dodge, and Gm in the marketplace.
