    Hopefully the PowerStroke V6 is a better design than the Lion V6...........

    That powerstroke motor has been used for years in the us in the F series, and seems to not be very Cranky at all. That is the motor that should have been put into the D3 and D4

    Agreed, and I also said that on one of the D3 threads. Oh well.

    Are you going to trade the cruiser if the rumor is true, and if we will see it in South Africa?

    Guys, with regret, I am willing to bet a case of BAINS that the petrol V6 will not be released here.
    Market history just does not make it an option.

    But, if they release it in Ausie Land, then we might stand a chance.

    But even the scribe said this in the article:

    The petrol engine (which wears the “Nano EcoBoost” badge) is already employed by the F-150 pick-up in the United States, offering peak outputs of 242 kW and 542 N.m. Of course, as whichcar.com.au points out, it remains to be seen whether this unit will be sold outside of North America.
    The 3,0-litre “Power Stroke” turbodiesel, meanwhile, is likewise already in use in the F-150, where it delivers some 186 kW and 597 N.m. If the report turns out to be accurate, this oil-burning engine seems a more likely bet for markets such as Australia and South Africa.

    If all the cooperation rumours berween VW and Ford are true, the V6 diesel might be a VW unit

    Those outputs are massive. Should demand way more street cred than those two-tone Cortina 3000L bakkies driven by beer-swilling ballies sporting shades and thick snorre throughout the '80's.

    Nee Koos die Cruisers bly Hier is darem `n paar V8`s op die werf waarmee ek my gat kan krap as dit jeuk.

    Ek was baie ernstig in 2011 om `n F150 Raptor in te voer. Dink ek het tans my Raptor skoene ontgroei. Die nuwe generasie bakies het in elk geval te sag geraak vir wat ek doen.

    Miskien eendag as ek die regte Shorty Cruiser raak loop gooi ek `n LS Chevy in.

    Ek weet uit `n betroubare bron dat sommige Ford tegnikuste reeds opleiding op die V6 2.7 Ecoboost ontvang het.
