Ford's Light-Duty Diesel Pickup Claims MPG Leadership

In the city it's rated to get 22 mpg from its turbocharged 3.0-liter V6 engine, and gets a combined rating of 25 mpg in mixed driving.

The 3.0-liter turbo diesel from Ford is the most fuel-efficient full-size pickup truck on the market... for now.

And just like your old Schwinn bike, the diesel F-150 uses a 10-speed automatic to ensure the engine is always at the ideal rpm.

"Even a few years ago, customers wouldn't have imagined an EPA-estimated rating of 30 mpg highway would be possible in a full-size pickup, but our team of crazy-smart engineers rose to the challenge", Hau Thai-Tang, Ford's executive vice president for product development and purchasing, said in a statement.

The 2018 Ford F-150 Power Stroke will push out 250 horsepower and 440 pound-feet of torque, making it the torquiest of the 2018 full-size pick-ups on the market. The 2018 Ford F-150 Power Stroke diesel scored a 30 mpg highway EPA rating, Ford Motor Company (FMC) announced today. The manufacturers of the respectively and perennial second- and third-best-selling Chevy Silverado and RAM pickup trucks in the USA announced new pickup powertrains in January. These diesel F-150s should be arriving in showrooms this May.

The 2019 RAM 1500's carryover 3.6-liter Pentastar V6 adds eTorque, a 48-volt mild hybrid. Fleet buyers will be able to order the F-150 Power Stroke Diesel in XL and XLT trim levels, while retail shoppers will have to stick with Lariat, King Ranch, and Limited trims.

More torque means more towing power. Although an All New one is determined by the way the next year, as will be a Chevrolet Silverado having a turbodiesel engine it defeats the many new Ram 1500 petrol & rsquo highway evaluation of 27 mpg. Ford has released the fuel economy ratings for the new F150 Powerstroke diesel, and that's the highway rating for the two-wheel drive model. Dealers started taking orders in January for delivery starting in May.
