Ford F-150: What Will Diesel Model Offer?

Ford launches 'commercial grade' diesel option for F-150 2018 Ford F-150 Diesel Revealed: 440 LB-FT Punch, 30 MPG Efficiency

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. But with the addition of the new Power Stroke diesel, Ford is hoping to deliver the sort of numbers that, not all that, long ago, would have been impressive coming from a compact sedan.

Horsepower is rated at 250, but like other diesels its strong suit is torque-440 pound-feet, peaking at just 1700 rpm-and thrift: Ford anticipates an EPA highway fuel economy rating of 30 mpg. 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.

"Competing diesels with electric cooling fans have to dial back on power under extreme heat and altitude", explains Ford Diesel Engine Technical Specialist David Ives, "so we decided on a viscous-controlled mechanical fan that has the capacity to move much more air across the radiator and intercooler in extreme conditions".

Diesels have always been a popular option with buyers of heavy-duty trucks, like the Ford Super Duty line.

Justices won't step into MS gay rights legal fight
Phil Bryant signed HB 1523 into law in 2016, but because of various legal challenges, it didn't go into effect until October 2017. It is the "worst" law in the nation, according to some LGBT groups, who were hoping the Supreme Court would strike it down.


For its part, Ford had been focusing on turbocharged alternatives, such as the 3.5-liter EcoBoost V-6 that matched the towing capacity of its classic, naturally aspirated 5.0-liter V-8. But turbos do have their drawbacks, notably a sharp drop in mileage under heavy loads - such as on steep hills, aggressive acceleration and extreme towing situations.

Ford expects the F-150 to get 30 miles per gallon on the highway with the new 3.0-litre V6 diesel and a 10-speed transmission. During that background session, Filipe noted that about 70% of F-150 buyers will use their trucks for towing, at least occasionally. For retail customers, it will be available on Lariat, King Ranch, and Platinum models, with either a 4×2 or 4×4 drivetrain, with both the SuperCrew and SuperCab configurations. The turbochargers are variable-geometry units, meant to keep turbo lag to a minimum, and cooling is aided by a good old mechanical, engine-driven fan for high-temp, high-altitude performance. It is paired with a 10-speed automatic that further enhances the truck's fuel efficiency. The engine also features standard auto start-stop tech.

- It can tow up to 11,400 pounds and has a 2,020-pound payload capacity.

Ford Motor Company has been coy with details regarding its new light-duty diesel bound for the F-150, until now.
