Ford has announced that the 2018 Ford F-150 Power Stroke Diesel has been rated at 30 mpg highway, 22 mpg city and 25 mpg combined, which are the highest ratings yet for a full size pickup. The 2018 F-150 Power Stroke Diesel is powered by a 3.0L diesel engine with 250 horsepower and 440 lb.-ft. of torque.
The 3.0L V6 diesel engine is mated to a 10-speed automatic transmission and the 2018 Ford F-150 Power Stroke Diesel can tow up to 11,400 pounds. The new diesel engine also provides best-in-class diesel payload – 2,020 pounds for XL and XLT fleet versions, and 1,940 pounds for retail versions of the pickup.
“Even a few years ago, customers wouldn’t have imagined an EPA-estimated rating of 30 mpg highway would be possible in a full-size pickup, but our team of crazy-smart engineers rose to the challenge,” said Hau Thai-Tang, Ford executive vice president, product development and purchasing.
The 2018 Ford F-150 with 3.0-liter Power Stroke diesel engine will begin shipping to dealers in May.
