Ford Debuts Details on Diesel F-150 Pickup

More efficient pickup hauls 2,020 pounds, tows 11,400, goes 30 miles per gallon

January 08, 2018

This spring, Ford is giving F-150 fans the diesel they've been asking for.

The new 2018 F-150 has a 3.0-liter 250-hp, 440-lb-ft Power Stroke turbodiesel V-6  with a 10-speed transmission pickup and should achieve 30 miles per gallon highway fuel efficiency, comparable to some midsize vehicles according to Ford.

Ford's target market for the Power Stroke F-150 is customers who require a work truck to haul or tow more weight than the average gasoline powered pickup owner may need.

Here are the Power Stroke F-150 specs:

The 3.0-liter engine, built in Great Britain, is a variant of the Lion diesel that Ford builds for its Land Rover and Jaguar vehicles.

Retail customers will be able to order the  Power Stroke F-150 diesel on Lariat, King Ranch, and Platinum trim levels on SuperCrew cabs with 5.5- or 6.5-foot beds or on Lariat SuperCabs with a 6.5- or 8.0-foot bed, including 4x4 and 4x2 versions.

Fleet customers  will be able to order the diesel engine on the less expensive XL and XLT SuperCab or SuperCrew cabs with 6.5- or 8.0-foot beds.

The Power Stroke F-150 will cost between $2,000 to $4,000 more than the comparable trim level on Ford's gas powered F-150 pickups.

Specific to the diesel engine, a 5.4-gallon DEF tank has been added which Ford says should last 10,000 miles before refilling. There is a DEF gauge and other optional diesel information screens, and a warning light for the water-separating fuel filter.

Ford will begin taking orders in mid-January with delivery in the spring.
