New Ford F-150 diesel gets 30-mpg highway rating

New Ford F-150 diesel gets 30-mpg highway rating

The 3.0L diesel V6 makes 250 horsepower and 440 lb. -ft. of torque. These are the highest EPA-estimated ratings available in a full-size pickup truck.

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.

Ford's closest competitor from its own stable is the 2-wheel-drive F-150 equipped with a turbocharged 2.7L gasoline V-6 and a 10-speed automatic transmission rated at 20/26/22 mpg (11.7-9.0-10.7 L/100 km). Fleet buyers will be able to order the F-150 Power Stroke Diesel in XL and XLT trim levels, while retail shoppers will have to stick with Lariat, King Ranch, and Limited trims.

If you need a pickup, and want to save as much gas as possible, the F-150 diesel can do that for you. The manufacturers of the respectively and perennial second- and third-best-selling Chevy Silverado and RAM pickup trucks in the US announced new pickup powertrains in January. The eTorque system will provide a small power boost, power electrical accessories, and bump up the engine's start-stop system. Additionally, it beats the latest Ram 1500 diesel & rsquo; s street rating of 27-mpg, as is just a Chevrolet Silverado having a turbodiesel motor, although an all-new one is on the next year.

Coupled with the F-150's aluminum body, which reduces weight by around 700 lbs over more conventional steel, this extremely efficient engine should easily be able to match or beat its fuel economy estimates out in the real world. Now, however, customers shopping for full-sized pickup trucks with the most grunt can seemingly have it all and add fuel-economy to their list of check-off boxes. These diesel F-150s should be arriving in showrooms this May.
