Ford Debuts Details on Diesel F-150 Pickup

Ford Debuts Details on Diesel F-150 Pickup

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.

The diesel F-150 is powered by Ford's only diesel V-6 - a 3.0-liter Power Stroke turbocharged engine that makes 250 horsepower and 440 pound-feet of torque. Ford claims the F-150 3.0L Power Stroke will have best-in-class payload and trailer towing capabilities of up to 2,020 pounds and 11,400 pounds, respectively.

Buyers will be able to spec the new diesel option on both 4x2 and 4x4 models, in Lariat, King Ranch, or Platinum trim levels, with SuperCrew or SuperCab configurations, and with 5.5- or 6.5-foot beds. The automaker did not extend its heavy-duty-truck legacy of the Power Stroke diesel V-8 to its diesel ford F-150 pickup truck.

"Competing diesels with electric cooling fans have to dial back on power under extreme heat and altitude", explains Ford Diesel Engine Technical Specialist David Ives, "so we decided on a viscous-controlled mechanical fan that has the capacity to move much more air across the radiator and intercooler in extreme conditions". "Now is the right time because we've never had this combination of aluminum construction and 10-speed automatic transmission...we could have done diesel years ago, but it wasn't the right time".

- Customers can order a diesel F-150 starting this month. The 2.7-liter EcoBoost Ford F-150 is rated 26-mpg highway by the EPA. That's $2,400 higher than the 3.5-liter EcoBoost V6 and $4,000 more than the 2.7-liter EcoBoost V6 now offered. It also employed a variable-geometry turbocharger and common-rail fuel injection to combat turbo lag, giving it a nice flat torque curve: peak torque comes in at just 1,750 rpm and stays constant across the rev range. Dual grille shutters can open and close automatically, enhancing aerodynamics for better fuel economy or optimizing airflow for more power. Payload will be up to 3270 lbs and towing capacity of up to 13,200 lbs.

Considering that Ford sold almost 900,000 F-150s in 2017, about 300,000 more than the Chevrolet Silverado, its nearest competitor, that would be no small feat.
