Ford’s legendary F-series pickup has been available with a diesel for many years, but it has usually been an International, and lately, a Ford diesel engine. Ford even put a Perkins diesel in some cars sold in Argentina, but as far as I know Ford never put a Cummins diesel in their light duty pickup (although you could get a Cummins 6.7 liter in an F650/750 from 2010-2015..but that isn’t exactly light duty). However, just because the Ford factory never put a Cummins in an F250 doesn’t mean you can’t buy one, because just about every engine swap possible has been done or is in the works. Personally, I’m waiting until someone swaps a 2-stroke 3-cylinder Saab engine into a Tesla…but until that time you can own a Cummins 6BT 12-valve swapped F250 known as the Fummins.

The early diesel engines were unsophisticated and gutless, and it was only […]
