The 2018 Ford F-150’s first 3.0-liter Power Stroke diesel (earlier post) officially carries EPA-estimated ratings of 30 mpg (7.83 l/100 km) highway, 22 mpg (10.68 l/100 km) city and 25 mpg (9.4 l/100 km)combined. These are the highest EPA-estimated ratings available in a full-size pickup truck.
These benchmark figures are the result of more than a decade of work developing a lightweight high-strength, military-grade, aluminum-alloy body, a 10-speed SelectShift transmission, and robust engine construction of aluminum and compacted graphite iron to deliver durability, reduced weight and high torque.
In addition to its leading fuel economy ratings, the new F-150 Power Stroke features best-in-class (full-size pickups under 8,500 pounds) diesel power: 250 horsepower and a 440 lb-ft (542 N·m) of torque—greater torque than a 2019 Ram 1500 Hemi V8. F-150 Power Stroke provides best-in-class diesel towing of 11,400 pounds.
The new engine also provides best-in-class diesel payload: 2,020 pounds for XL and XLT fleet applications, and 1,940 pounds for retail applications.
The 2018 Ford F-150 with all-new 3.0-liter Power Stroke diesel engine will begin shipping to dealers in May.
