This B20 biodiesel-capable Transit engine option is designed to help give you the right balance of power and performance, plus proven Ford diesel ruggedness and dependability.
With direct injection and turbocharging, this engine generates 310 horsepower with a best-in-class maximum gas torque rating of 400 lb.-ft.* Direct injection (DI) delivers a precise, fine mist of fuel directly into each cylinder, unlike conventional port fuel injection that sprays into the intake system. DI is designed to extract as much power as possible from every drop of fuel. Turbochargers kick in on demand to provide a surge of responsive power when needed. The 3.5L EcoBoost V6 uses two small turbochargers that spool up to their operating speeds quickly.

With the 3.7L engine, Ford offers an available CNG/Propane Gaseous Engine Prep Package* for power conversion to compressed natural gas (CNG) or propane autogas.
