Ford 300 Inline 6 Cylinder Engine

The Ford 300 inline six cylinder engine was first introduced for the 1965 model year to be used in the popular F series pickup truck. Ford would keep the 300 in production all the way up until 1996. During its 31 year run, this extremely reliable inline 6 was used in many Ford vehicles and also in anything from tractors and wood chippers to that big brown UPS truck that you see driving around your neighborhood.

Today it is not uncommon at all to see a Ford 300 make it to 300,000 miles or more with no major problems at all. Besides its great reputation for reliability, the 300 I6 puts out an impressive amount of torque with later models pushing 265 pounds of foot torque.
