Ford F-150 Diesel: Release Date, Specs, Price”

The F-150 Powerstroke can carry 2,020 pounds of cargo, or tow 11,400 pounds. The diesel engine won't be the last option coming soon to the F-150: the automaker has already confirmed that a seventh, a hybrid powertrain, is on the way. The diesel will be mated with Ford's 10-speed automatic transmission, calibrated and geared for the new engine's massive low-end torque.

When Ford's diesel half-tonner arrives next spring, only General Motors and Toyota will be without a diesel option in their 1500 series trucks. That Ford turned to diesel power first may be a shock, considering its tumultuous recent history. "The more you tow and the longer you haul, the more you'll appreciate its class-leading towing and payload capacity and how efficient it is at the pump".

Since its introduction on the F-150 in 2011, Ford's EcoBoost V-6s have become the engine of choice for most F-150 buyers, but now the diesel is "the next logical extension", says Todd Eckert, truck marketing manager. That would beat the Ram's 27 mpg highway.

Ford says the combination of the 250-hp, 440-lb. -ft.

"The magic number is the 30-mpg target", says Dave Felipe, vice president-global powertrain engineering. While the Ford engine and the Land Rover powerplant share similar displacements, block architecture, and outputs (254 hp in the Land Rover vs. 250 hp in the Ford), engineers from Ford said the two engines have key differences.

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. Combined with the anticipated 30-mpg highway rating, the Ford F-150 diesel may have a cruising range of up to 780 miles on a single tank of fuel. 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. The vehicle will come with a price tag between $2,400 and $4,000 more than its petrol alternative. Orders will be taken by dealers mid-January for deliveries in spring 2018, and both 4×2 and 4×4 F-150 trucks in Lariat, King Ranch and Platinum trim levels will be available with the option for retail buyers (fleet buyers get a wider option of trims). (5,171-kg) towing capacity and a 2,020-lb.

The engine, a variant of the 3.0L turbodiesel sold in Jaguar and Land Rover models, is built at Ford's Dagenham Engine Plant in the U.K. Ford expects the plant to be able to provide ample supply of the engines.
