The Ford F-150 diesel engine is a potent 3.0-liter Power Stroke that helps you save on fuel costs. It has official EPA-estimated ratings of 30 mpg on the highway, 22 mpg in the city, and 25 mpg combined. That’s a big deal, because no other full-size pickup truck on the market today rivals that kind of fuel efficiency. In other words, you’ll be spending less to keep this vehicle running day after day versus the competition.
Not too long ago, the dream of driving a full-size pickup truck that could attain 30 mpg on the highway seemed unrealistic. Yet today, Ford has reached that milestone before any other automaker, demonstrating once again it’s a leader when it comes to innovative designs.
Of course, one of the key elements of these amazing fuel efficiency ratings from the EPA has been Ford’s work in perfecting the F-150 platform. For over a decade, the automaker has perfected its high-strength, military-grade, aluminum-alloy body that’s also quite lightweight. The Power Stroke engine also helps to shed some pounds from the truck, thanks to its aluminum and compacted graphite iron construction that still boasts amazing durability.
That engine works with the 10-speed SelectShift automatic transmission. With so many gears, it can keep the Power Stroke diesel running in the most optimal rpm range possible, improving responsiveness, power output, and fuel efficiency at once.
Speaking of power, the 3.0-liter Power Stroke diesel engine provides plenty. Not only do you enjoy a solid 250-horsepower, the setup boasts an amazing 440 lb.-ft. of torque, out-muscling other full-size pickups. That translates into a maximum towing capacity of 11,400 pounds, which is plenty for taking along a boat, RV, horse trailer, or whatever. The payload rating comes in at 2,020 pounds for both XL and XLT fleet models, or 1,940 pounds for retail models, which allows you to really load up the bed with heavy burdens.
Not only will you be able to tow and haul with the best, while also saving on fuel with the 2018 Ford F-150 Power Stroke diesel, the truck will feature an excellent array of equipment.
Currently, the Ford F-150 lineup offers some clever equipment to help you work smart. One example is the Sync 3 system with Sync Connect. Not only do you get to use intuitive voice controls to do everything from control the sound system to plotting navigation routes, FordPass allows you to perform certain functions away from the truck. Use it to remember where you parked, actuate the door locks, check the fuel level, and even set a time to remotely start the engine.
