At the 2017 Detroit Auto Show, Ford announced that a 3.0-liter V6 diesel engine would soon be available for the 2018 F-150, and it has now landed at Koch Ford! Here are the full specifications for the newest and smallest Power Stroke motor: 250 horsepower, 440 lb-ft of torque, an estimated 30 MPG on the highway, and 11,400 lbs of towing capacity.
The F-150 Diesel will utilize a new 10-speed automatic transmission co-developed with GM. The engine’s 250 hp arrives at 3200 rpm, while all 440 lb-ft is available between 1750 and 2250 rpm. The engine uses a variable-geometry turbocharger and shares its block material and crankshaft construction with Ford's 2.7-liter twin-turbo EcoBoost V6. Ford Power Stroke engineers optimized the pickup motor and drivetrain for truck duty.
The diesel engine boasts EPA-estimated ratings of 30 mpg when driving on the highway, 22 mpg driving in the city, and 25 mpg combined. These are the highest EPA-estimated ratings available in a full-size pickup truck.
