The Ford F-150 has built a legion of loyal truck owners, offering pickup drivers a powerfully capable companion that they can rely on to complete any job. The 2018 F-150 boasts numerous best-in-class titles, including best-in-class payload and towing, and was recently named 2018 Motor Trend Truck of the Year®.
A new best-in-class title has just been given to the 2018 F-150: best-in-class diesel fuel economy. The F-150 is offered with a diesel option for the first time ever this year—a mighty 3.0-liter Power Stroke® based on the same diesel option available for F-Series Super Duty—enabling it to achieve a best-in-class 30 diesel mpg on the highway and 22 diesel mpg in the city.
“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.
Power & Performance
The new Ford F-150 Power Stroke® diesel is not just efficient, but it’s exceptionally capable. It delivers best-in-class diesel 250 horsepower and 440 lb-ft of torque, making this truck the best possible companion on the worksite. With this burly engine, you’ll also possess best-in-class diesel towing and payload. It can tow up to a whopping 11,400 pounds and offers a payload capacity of 2,020 pounds.
Once again, Ford has proven itself as the maker of the world’s best pickup truck. Its engineers are wholly committed to pushing the F-150’s equipment and capabilities to never-before-seen heights. The new 2018 F-150 Power Stroke® diesel should be available at Friendly Ford this May, so be sure to stop in and ask when you can expect to test-driver your very own diesel-powered F-150.
