The 2018 Ford F-150 is the latest in a long line of popular, unstoppable pickup trucks from Ford, and now drivers have a new and more efficient option when it comes to engines. With an available 3.0-liter Power Stroke® diesel engine under the hood, Ford F-150 owners now have access to all-new power and capability – as well as fuel economy. The Ford F-150 diesel engine was recently rated by the EPA to have a fuel economy of 22 mpg in the city and a staggering 30 mpg on the highway.*
This fuel rating is possible due to the 2018 Ford F-150’s lightweight aluminum-alloy body construction and a new, smooth-shifting 10-speed SelectShift ® automatic transmission. Additionally, the Power Stroke diesel engine itself is made from aluminum and graphite for a lighter build.
The 3.0-liter diesel engine also offers a best-in-class power rating of 250 hp and 440 lb-ft of torque, allowing it to tow up to 11,400 pounds. The engine shares its technology with the F-Series Super Duty’s new 6.7-liter diesel engine, which makes the Super Duty trucks the most powerful heavy-duty pickup available on the market.
Models of the 2018 Ford F-150 equipped with the 3.0-liter Power Stroke diesel engine option will begin shipping to dealers in May of this year, so make sure to come out to Palmetto Ford to try them out for yourself.
