First-Ever F-150 Diesel Offers Best-in-Class Torque, Towing, Targeted EPA-Est. 30 MPG; You’re Welcome Truck Fans!

  • Ford F-150 is delivering another initial – a all-new 3.0-litre Power Stroke® diesel engine targeted to lapse an EPA-estimated rating of 30 mpg highway
  • Full-size lorry business who wish clever fuel economy while towing and hauling win big; 3.0-litre Ford Power Stroke V6 diesel engine delivers best-in-class diesel towing and payload
  • Arriving this spring, F-150 with 3.0-litre Power Stroke engine provides best-in-class diesel 250 horsepower and 440 lb.-ft. of torque – and creates for a sixth engine choice for F-150 customers

DEARBORN, Mich., Jan. 8, 2018 – Full-size diesel lorry fans have reason to applaud this year as Ford – North America’s lorry sales personality – delivers a first-ever F-150 Power Stroke diesel with a targeted EPA-estimated 30 mpg highway rating, a best-in-class 11,400 pounds of towing ability and 2,020 pounds of cargo capacity, and best-in-class diesel 250 horsepower and 440 lb.-ft. of torque.

“For each lorry owners who wants clever fuel economy while they draw and haul, we offer a new 3.0-litre Power Stroke® V6 engine that dreams are done of,” pronounced Dave Filipe, clamp boss tellurian powertrain engineering. “The some-more we draw and a longer we haul, a some-more you’ll conclude a class-leading towing and cargo ability and how fit it is during a pump.”

This all-new 3.0-litre Power Stroke diesel now creates for 6 engine choices for F-150 customers.

F-150’s all-new Power Stroke diesel facilities commercial-grade design

The rarely expected F-150 Power Stroke diesel shares proven commercial-grade record with F-Series Super Duty’s incomparable 6.7-litre Power Stroke – America’s many powerful, able heavy-duty pickup lorry ever.

The really same Ford powertrain group behind a 6.7-litre Power Stroke for Super Duty trucks given 2011 designed and engineered this all-new 3.0-litre Power Stroke V6 diesel engine to a specific needs of North American F-150 business who draw and transport frequently.

Peak torque comes during only 1,750 rpm with clever torque smoothness stability via a rpm range, that is ideal for towing or hauling complicated loads over prolonged distances.

This new V6 diesel facilities a same compacted-graphite iron retard element construction and forged-steel holder used in a 2.7-litre EcoBoost® engine for combined strength and continuance along with reduced weight.

For larger responsiveness and reduced turbo lag, a Ford lorry group chose a high-efficiency variable-geometry turbocharger. A common-rail fuel injection complement precisely optimizes opening and fuel efficiency, while a high-pressure 29,000 pounds per block in. injection calibration enables smoother, quieter operation with reduced emissions. 

Dual fuel filters are combined for softened break-in, while a cast-aluminum oil vessel and two-stage oil siphon meant reduced parasitic detriment and softened fuel efficiency.

Engineered to draw underneath exhausting conditions

Engineering a many fit F-150 towing appurtenance ever is enabled by F-150’s high-strength, military-grade, aluminum-alloy body, introduced in 2015. This insubordinate construction lightened a bucket by 700 pounds, permitting engineers to deposit in additional technologies to serve urge towing and cargo capability, as good as larger fuel economy, even when towing. For 2018, stronger axles joined with a entirely boxed, high-strength steel support supplement serve robustness.

The Ford lorry group paid sold courtesy to impassioned pushing conditions when engineering a all-new 3.0-litre Power Stroke diesel, that facilities a reward involuntary engine-driven fan and twin radiator shutters for softened high temperature, high-altitude opening – a pivotal advantage contra a electric cooling fans used by competitors.

“We know that competing diesels with electric cooling fans have to dial behind on energy underneath impassioned feverishness and altitude, so we motionless on a viscous-controlled involuntary fan that has a ability to pierce most some-more atmosphere opposite a radiator and intercooler in impassioned conditions,” pronounced David Ives, Ford diesel engine technical specialist. “This gives F-150 Power Stroke owners some-more energy and some-more flitting capability in oppressive conditions.”

In some-more assuage pushing and towing conditions, a F-150 engine control complement backs off a fan bucket by a gelatinous coupler, shutting down a dual radiator shutters for softened aerodynamic potency and reduced parasitic engine loss.

Calibrated privately for a all-new 3.0-litre Power Stroke diesel’s low-end energy and torque curves, a customary SelectShift® 10-speed involuntary smoothness maximizes change points and rigging ratios to optimize power, low-rpm torque and efficiency. This segment-exclusive smoothness can non-sequentially name a right rigging ratio formed on need – for best-in-class performance. To assistance revoke fuel expenditure and car emissions during city driving, Auto Start-Stop also comes standard.

In contrast along a mythological Davis Dam in Arizona, F-150 versed with a all-new 3.0-litre Power Stroke diesel engine climbed 13 miles during a 6 per cent class in temperatures in additional of 100 degrees – progressing unchanging energy outlay throughout.

Order now for smoothness this spring

In mid-January, Ford dealers start holding orders for a 2018 F-150 with all-new 3.0-litre Power Stroke diesel engine. Deliveries start this spring.

The all-new 3.0-litre Power Stroke is accessible for both 4×2 and 4×4 F-150 pickups.
