Ford F-150 Diesel Claims 250 HP, 30 MPG Ratings

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.

The new diesel engine is one of two additional powertrains coming to the F-150 to augment its mainstay EcoBoost turbocharged gasoline engines.

For fleet customers, the new diesel will be available on all F-150 trim levels with SuperCrew 5.5-ft. or 6.5-ft. bed configurations and SuperCab trucks with a 6.5-ft. bed.

If you want to know why truck enthusiasts love diesels, look no further than the newly-released specs for the 2018 Ford F-150 Power Stroke diesel: 440 lb-ft of torque, an 11,400 pound towing capacity, a 2,020 pound payload rating, and an estimated 30 MPG on the highway.

The F-150, Ford's full-size truck made in Kansas City and elsewhere, is getting a diesel engine.

"The more you tow and the longer you haul, the more you'll appreciate its class-leading towing and payload capacity and how efficient it is at the pump". That beats its closest rival, the Ram 1500 Ecodiesel, by over a ton and puts it in the upper echelon of all light duty pickups.

"We're confident we'll get there", Ford vice-president of powertrain engineering David Filipe said in a media briefing ahead of the official launch announcement. It's the sixth engine choice for F-150 customers.

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.

This spring, Ford is giving F-150 fans the diesel they've been asking for. The diesel F-150 will sport a 26-gallon diesel fuel tank that, when combined with a 30-mpg anticipated highway range, could net up to 780 miles of driving range.

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

Diesels typically command premium prices, and while Ford won't discuss MSRPs the new 3.0-liter Power Stroke V6 seems likely to be consistent with that trait.
