Arriving this spring, F-150 with 3.0-litre Power Stroke diesel engine boasts 250 hp and 440 lb.-ft. of torque.
Ford is introducing the first-ever F-150 Power Stroke diesel with a targeted EPA-estimated 30 mpg (7.8L/100 km) highway rating, 11,400 pounds of towing capacity and 2,020 pounds of payload capacity.
“For every truck owner who wants strong fuel economy while they tow and haul, we offer a new 3.0-litre 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.”
Peak torque comes at just 1,750 rpm with strong torque delivery continuing throughout the rpm range, which is ideal for towing or hauling heavy loads over long distances.
“We know that competing diesels with electric cooling fans have to dial back on power under extreme heat and altitude, 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,” said David Ives, Ford diesel engine technical specialist. “This gives F-150 Power Stroke owners more power and more passing capability in harsh conditions.”
