Ford is a juggernaut in the automotive industry, and now the blue oval will be helping to build USPS mail trucks by Oshkosh. Although the contract for these new delivery vehicles was awarded to the Oshkosh Defense company, the organization will be getting engines, transmissions, and other components from the Ford Motor Company, marking Ford’s commitment to growing in the world of commercial business. So, what engine will be powering the Next Generation Delivery Vehicle alongside electric mail trucks?
What engine do mail trucks use?
The new Oshkosh NGDV will be powered by some kind of 2.0-liter four-cylinder engine provided by Ford. According to Ford Authority, it is unclear which engine Ford will be providing exactly, but it should be more efficient than what is currently in the Grumman LLV mail truck. In addition to using an engine from Ford, the NGDV also has the ability to come outfitted with an electric powertrain.
