The moment we have all been waiting for is finally here. Ford has announced that the F-150 diesel engine is available now for customers to order. For the first time ever, the F-150 will have a diesel engine option and it’s a good one—an all-new 3.0-liter Power Stroke®, rated at a best-in-class 250 horsepower and 440 lb-ft of torque.
With this new option, F-150 buyers will now have six fantastic engines to choose from, enabling the model to suit a variety of needs and preferences. With the diesel engine, the F-150 is even more capable than before; it yields a best-in-class towing capacity of 11,400 pounds and a payload capacity of 2,020 pounds. This engine is expected to deliver an EPA-estimated 30 mpg highway, an impressive rating for a truck of its muscle and brawn.*
“For every truck owner who wants strong fuel economy while they tow and haul, we offer a new 3.0-liter Power Stroke® V6 engine that dreams are made of,” said Dave Filipe, vice president global powertrain engineering. “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.”
If you have been anxiously anticipating this announcement, you don’t have to wait any longer. Stop by Romeo Ford to place your order for a diesel-equipped F-150. The new trucks are set to arrive this spring.
