Ford F-150 Diesel Option Offered

09 January, 2018, 02:08 | Author: Valerie Burke

First announced nearly a year ago, the Blue Oval has now released full details on the sixth engine option to join the F-150 range: a new 3.0-liter Power Stroke V6, developed by the same team behind the Super Duty's 6.7-liter Power Stroke V8. A first for Ford in the half-ton truck category, the addition of a compression ignition engine is expected to add incremental sales to a truck that has been the country's bestselling pickup for 41 straight years, and bestselling vehicle of any kind for 36.

That's the EPA highway figure Ford has targeted, which would match the midsize Chevy Colorado diesel's rating, but in a much larger and more powerful package. The same compacted-graphite iron block material and forged steel crank as used in the 2.7-liter EcoBoost has been carried over to the V6 diesel, too.

WIth a new diesel under the hood, the 2018 F-150 diesel offers a towing capacity of 11,400 pounds, a payload capacity of 2,020 pounds and a projected EPA-estimated rating of 30 miles per hour highway.

Diesel also is an option on rival Ram and Nissan full-size trucks, which means Ford is playing some catch up in that size class, though its F-150 is the nation's best-selling vehicle.

Ford estimates that only 5 percent of F-150 buyers will pay for the optional diesel engine.

The 10-speed SelectShift automatic transmission is standard, and has been tweaked with the diesel in mind.

The 3.0-liter Power Stroke turbo diesel makes 250 hp and 440 lb-ft of torque. GM (Chevrolet and GMC) offers a diesel (the 6.6-liter Duramax V8) in its HD trucks, while the Toyota Tundra range is limited to gasoline engines, and does not include a heavy-duty model.

United States automaker giant Ford has announced that it will be launching a diesel version of its F-150 pickup truck, one of its most successful models. Although the 3.0-liter found under the hoods of some Land Rover SUVs is similar to the F-150 unit, engineers from Ford said their diesel engine for the F-150 will have key differences including an uprated turbocharger and higher-pressure fuel delivery.

Ford said F-150 will have an advanced power-train lineup with a best in class torque.
