Ford Powerstroke vs. Ram Cummins Turbo Diesel

Discover the Diesel Difference: Ford Power Stroke Diesel Engines versus Ram Cummins Diesel Engines

When you're looking to get behind the wheel of a pickup truck powered by a diesel engine, you have a handful of options to choose from. However, we here at Cook Ford know that drivers from the Texas City, Baytown, Houston, Pearland, League City, and Pasadena TX areas deserve the best, the most reliable, the most powerful, and the most efficient! Below, you'll see how the Ford Power Stroke Diesel Engine compares to the Ram Cummins Diesel Engine so you can see the Ford advantage for yourself.


First and foremost, the largest difference between Ford and Ram's diesel engine offerings is where these engines are developed; while Ram has asked Cummins to develop their engines for them, Ford has sought in-house solutions making their engines completely exclusive to Ford trucks. Even more impressive, when you look at the specs of these engines, Ford offers something so much better in nearly every aspect. Let's take a look:

The 6.7-liter Power Stroke vs. the 6.7-liter Cummins

  • The Power Stroke is a V8 engine, while the Cummins is an inline six; this will tell you right away that Ford's option is more powerful right out of the gate.

  • There are a couple variations of each engine but Ford wins at every turn. The Cummins comes in a number of versions but the most current High-Output offers 385 horsepower and 865 lb-ft of torque, while the most current High-Output Power Stroke engine blasts out 440 horsepower and 860 lb-ft of torque.

  • Perhaps not as important to some but still worth mentioning, the Power Stroke engine is lighter without compromising integrity. Weighing in at 990 lbs. dry, it trumps the Cummins' weight of 1,050 lbs. dry. This is because the Power Stroke's engine block is made of compact graphite iron and has aluminum cylinder heads, as opposed to the Cummins engine made with heavier cast iron.
