Why is there a delay on the 3.0 diesel? Could it be possible that the engine will be upgraded on hp and torque?

It is possible, most engines got at least minor tweaks in horsepower and torque.

Unfortunately, it’s more likely it’s delayed as a result of all the other ongoing delays. Since the take rate for the 3.0 PowerStroke isn’t that high in the F-150, they probably are focusing their production efforts elsewhere for the next few weeks.

Don’t forget, the engine is built in Europe and shipped here.

I didn’t know that. I researched it further, and it is built in Dagenham, United Kingdom.

A bit ironic the flagship American truck is powered by an engine that was developed as a joint venture with Ford and PSA - Peugeot/Citroen (France), and built in Britain. 🇺🇸 🇫🇷 🇬🇧
