Ford F-150 diesel aims for 30 mpg at EPA

2018 Ford F 150 Diesel In Red

Ford's best-selling full-size pickup truck will be powered by a diesel engine for the first time in its 70-year history.

With the Power Stroke 3.0 litre, the F-150 is expected to hit a targeted EPA-estimated 12.7 km/l (30 mpg) highway rating.

Those are the sort of conditions were diesels shine, noted David Filipe, Ford Vice President of Global Powertrain, whose team oversaw the development of the F-150's new Power Stroke diesel.

In addition to being properly impressive, the Power Stroke can be optioned on 4x2 and 4x4 models in SuperCrew or SuperCab configurations, be it the 5.5- or 6.5-foot bed.

On Live TV, Debra Messing Chastises E! About Gender Pay Inequity
"I was so shocked to hear that E! doesn't believe in paying their female cohost the same as their male cohost", Messing said. The 49-year-old was asked by Giuliana Rancic why she was wearing black, and her response raised some eyebrows.

EcoBoost gas-powered turbo V-6 versions of the Ford F-150 now account for 60 percent of sales, while the 6.7-liter Power Stroke V-8 diesel enjoys almost 85-percent take rate on the Ford F-Series Super Duty pickups.

Ford has finally released the spec sheet for their Ford F-150 Diesel model.

Diesels have always been a popular option with buyers of heavy-duty trucks, like the Ford Super Duty line.

Ford expects actual EPA estimates for the 3.0-liter Power Stroke to be put forth in the spring closer to launch. Design highlights include a graphite-iron block, forged steel crankshaft (shared with Ford's turbocharged 2.7-liter EcoBoost gasoline V6), a two-stage oil pump, a variable geometry turbocharger, and a common rail injection system pressurized to 29,000 pounds per square inch.

Those turtles and iguanas aren't dead. They're just really cold
Temperatures are expected to rise this week, which means that the rescued turtles could be released back into the ocean by Friday. Wildlife officials are asking boaters to be extra vigilant and to avoid areas where large numbers of manatees have gathered.

A facelift on the aluminum pickup features a new grille and headlamps reminiscent of Super Duty models, new facias and taillamps on the 2018 Ford F-150.

Ford's new turbodiesel is rated at 250 horsepower and 440 lb-ft of torque-narrowly edging the Ram's 240 hp and 420 lb-ft-with the ability to tow 11,400 pounds and haul 2,020 pounds. 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. Calibrated specifically for the 3.0L diesel's low-end power and torque curves, the standard SelectShift 10-speed automatic features shift points and gear ratios that optimize power, low-rpm torque and efficiency. In order to help reduce fuel consumption and vehicle emissions during city driving, auto Start-Stop technology is standard. Ford tested this with a F-150 along the Davis Dam in Arizona.

As it is a premium engine option, customers can expect to pay several thousand more than the cost of the base petrol engine, depending on trim.

According to Ford, 70 percent of F-150 owners tow with their pickups. Not bad at all for a full-sized truck.
