Ford has announced the specs for the first ever F-150 Power Stroke diesel, which not only has 440 lb-ft. of torque, but Ford is targeting a 30 mpg highway rating for the full size pickup. The 2018 Ford F-150 Power Stroke diesel is powered by a 250-hp 3.0-liter Power Stroke V6 diesel engine that gives the truck a tow rating of 11,400 pounds and 2,020 pounds of payload capacity.
“For every truck owner who wants strong fuel economy while they tow and haul, we offer a new 3.0-liter Power Stroke V6 engine that dreams are made of,” said Dave Filipe, vice president global powertrain engineering. “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.”
The 3.0L Power Stroke diesel V6’s peak torque arrives at just 1,750 rpm and it’s mated to a standard 10-speed automatic transmission. The engine also features standard auto start-stop tech.
The 3.0-liter Power Stroke is available with either in both 4×2 and 4×4 and buyers can choose this engine option for 2018 F-150 Lariat, King Ranch and Platinum edition SuperCrew trucks with either a 5.5-foot or 6.5-foot bed configuration, and SuperCab trucks with a 6.5-foot bed configuration.
Fleet customers can choose the 3.0-liter Power Stroke diesel engine on all F-150 trim levels with SuperCrew 5.5-foot or 6.5-foot bed configurations and SuperCab trucks with a 6.5 foot bed.
Ford is already taking deliveries for the 2018 F-150 diesel, which arrives this spring.
