    I saw that last night as well. No real details at this point about the "redesign". It's still a v6 3.0L with a 90 degree orientation. They have mentioned low friction piston rings and a new turbocharger. Nothing else really. Did they redesign bearings, heads, intake, intercooler, oil cooler, EGR, DEF system?

    Myself I’d rather the manufacturer (FCA ) slowly release data and throughly real world test a newly redesigned Engine than to quickly release an old designed diesel engine with just bolting on an EGR and saying it’s ready to go , this is the reason why we have had some many blown engines...

    On paper/ Computers Everything is great, real world use different story....

    FCA can not have engine failures with the new EcoDiesel, IMOP this would be the abrupt ending to this fantastic truck platform ....

    There’s been numerous advances the past several years in reducing NOX gases in the combustion chamber before exiting the exhaust to reduce the heavy Usage of the EGR...

    It took 10+ years before the Automotive industry figured out how to handle emissions/ EGR’s on gassers in 70’s until mid 80’s ....

    Somebody should have asked why the re-design was necessary.

    I believe it’s self explanatory, First EcoDiesel engine design had issues with newer emissions requirements .... Now Ford’s 6.7 is on its 3rd redesign update,this engine is only 8-9 years old .. Self explanatory first 2 designs has issues....

    Very rarely has a newly designed engine have no issues... Another quick reference Ford’s 6.9 had major head gasket issues, after 4or 5 years they finally addressed the issues with changes to block design and relocating water jackets and increasing the head bolts diameter which then they increased the cid to 7.3 which fixed it , and Ford still lives off the reputation of the longevity and reliability from that engine ...

    I could probably name at least 10 different engines off the top of my head with design flaws that usually takes 4-5 years before the manufacturers address the issues.Another Quick one 351 M use to crack the blocks in the engine valley ,Ford didn’t address that issue for about 6 years, until about 1980 ..

    I use to work in a machine shop when I was a teenager starting out in 70’s ..First job disassembling engines and vapor degreasing then quickly identifying faulty components so we didn’t waste any time/money on them ... You’ll learn very quickly where to look...

    I use to completely dissemble and clean and inspect about 3-4 engines per day ...

    I think that most everything they have advertised that they did was to regain the 1500 mpg title. Anything done to improve reliability, if they actually did anyything, they will be silent on since they never admitted to needing to do any reliability upgrades.
