Ford's Diesel F-150: 30 MPG on the Highway

  • 2018 Ford F-150 Diesel Revealed: 440 LB-FT Punch, 30 MPG Efficiency

Ford is to build thousands of new diesel engines in the United Kingdom, as the U.S. auto giant prepares a non-petrol alternative for its iconic pick-ups across the pond.

Ford expects the F-150 to get 30 miles per gallon on the highway with the new 3.0-liter V6 diesel and a 10-speed transmission. The same compacted-graphite iron block material and forged steel crank as used in the 2.7-liter EcoBoost has been carried over to the V6 diesel, too.

Powering the diesel model is a turbocharged 3.0-liter V6 engine that will be offering about 250hp and 440lb ft of torque.

For now Ford has only one competitor when it comes to the half-ton diesel game, and that's the Ram EcoDiesel.

The commission was chaired by Vice President Mike Pence, but its driving force was Kansas Secretary of State Kris Kobach . She also said the department is going to face similar obstacles in seeking information from the states.

The engine should appeal to frequent towers and long-haul drivers with improved capacity and range.

Diesel also is an option on rival Ram and Nissan full-size trucks, which means Ford is playing some catch up in that size class, though its F-150 is the nation's best-selling vehicle.

Although diesel's popularity with general carbuyers has rapidly declined over the past few years-just nine diesel-powered passenger cars are available so far in 2018, down from 22 in 2015-truck buyers have clamored for the engine option in light-duty trucks and are seemingly willing to pay for it. Retail customers can select the 3.0L diesel for F-150 Lariat, King Ranch and Platinum edition SuperCrew trucks with either a 5.5-ft. or 6.5-ft. bed and SuperCab trucks with a 6.5-ft. bed. Ford tested this with a F-150 along the Davis Dam in Arizona. GM (Chevrolet and GMC) offers a diesel (the 6.6-liter Duramax V8) in its HD trucks, while the Toyota Tundra range is limited to gasoline engines, and does not include a heavy-duty model.

In more moderate driving and towing conditions, the F-150 engine control system backs off the fan load through a viscous coupler, closing down the two radiator shutters for improved aerodynamic efficiency and reduced parasitic engine loss. Pricing will be announced later this month, when dealers begin taking pre-orders. The OEM called the 2018 F-150 with this latest engine "the most efficient F-150 towing machine ever".
