This was interesting to chase down. I hadn't even heard of one of these yet, and wondered if this was a followup of the Ford Cabover rumors that were to sport the Ford V10. Not so it seems.
Ford made a joint venture with Navistar and called it the Blue DIamond truck company LLC. The truck is built at Navistars plant in Mexico, and has a Navistar V6 turbo diesel engine. I would wonder what Ford's contribution was in this "joint" venture other than Ford emblems?
I'm in much more of a "F Series" market, but still wondering why I haven't seen one of these in use from the fleet type accounts, seeing that I'm pretty much in Ford country here.
So, the Ford LCF series sure "looks" the same as the Navistar CF series, judging from just pictures, so my best guess at this point would be a DW1615GBY.
Let us know more info as you find it, for future reference. And thank goodness for NAGS, without whose complete and comprehensive vehicle lookup database, this would have been (should have been) easy to just punch in "2006 Ford LCF" and have an answer. The truck's only been out there for two years now... (Let's see, how much was that last update, again...?)
I might have a fleet account buying some of these here, they tried Sprinters but they couldn't handle the work load, so they are thinking about these or GMC. I am checking into comparative replacement glass costs for them.
What did you finally confirm on yours as to the NAGS part #?
