New Military Vehicle To Use Power Stroke

An older article, but it's fun to read about how the military tables are slowly turning from Navistar, to Ford. Enjoy!

Quote:
As part of the government's process of finding a new light tactical vehicle replacement for the Hummer, BAE Systems, a global company known for their advanced defense, security, and aerospace systems in the air and on land, is now showing their JLTV (Joint Light Tactical Vehicles) to government officials. The process has several stages but will likely be the vehicle of choice for our military for many years to come.
Quote:
As part of its proposal, BAE Systems also announced that Ford's 6.7L V-8 Power Stroke will power the JLTV family of vehicles. Among the most important reasons for the choice was the engine's class-leading fuel economy and the best horsepower and torque numbers. This is the same engine Ford created for the F-Series Super Dutys.

Not to mention with all the stupid, ignorant and money wasting decisions guys who've been in the military have told me about, an endorsement from the army about a vehicle is nothing to brag about.
