Just so you know the 6.7 was not a solo effort by Ford.
Care to explain?

The 6.7 L is the first medium duty diesel designed and built by Ford. It was designed in conjunction with AVL of Austria.

It's all on Wikipedia

Thanks Coops1. I see that "AVL assisted American Ford with the design of their new Power Stroke medium-duty truck diesel engine". It's not unusual for companies to use subcontractors to save money. The US military and military contractors do it all the time.

Here's the source for the Wiki article. diesel power magazine Ford 6.7L powerstroke diesel engine/
Ford used AVL to help with the design. AVL appears to have expertise with regards to engine noise/sound, so maybe they helped with the sound of the 6.7L engine.
