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

2018 Ford F-150 diesel aims for 30 mpg at EPA

Ford announced the diesel engine option for the F-150 Monday, saying it will give the truck an estimated rating of 30 miles per gallon. 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.

"We know that competing diesels with electric cooling fans have to dial back on power under extreme heat and altitude, 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", said David Ives, Ford diesel engine technical specialist.

This week, details about the diesel 2018 Ford F-150 were made available months after the automaker confirmed they would offer the engine in their best-selling pickup. It also bestows the pick-up with a claimed best-in-class towing capacity (5,170 kg) and payload capacity (916 kg). The engine shares the same graphite iron block material and forged steel crank used in the 2.7-liter EcoBoost. Best of all for those who use their trucks to do characteristically "trucky" things, it delivers up to 440 lb-ft of torque, according to Ford, for a best-in-class tow rating of 11,400 pounds, along with 2,020 pounds of payload capacity. The diesel F-150 will join the General Motors Chevrolet Colorado/GMC Canyon mid-size pickups and the full-size Nissan Titan XD in offering a diesel.

Buyers will be able to spec the new diesel option on both 4x2 and 4x4 models, in Lariat, King Ranch, or Platinum trim levels, with SuperCrew or SuperCab configurations, and with 5.5- or 6.5-foot beds.

The 3.0-liter Power Stroke turbo diesel makes 250 hp and 440 lb-ft of torque. Dealers will soon start taking orders for delivery in the spring.

The F-150 diesels will offer a choice of rear- or 4-wheel drive. "This gives F-150 Power Stroke owners more power and more passing capability in harsh conditions".
