Ford Announces Diesel Option for F-150
09 January 2018, 02:04 | Lionel James
The new Ford F-150 diesel engine will be sourced from the automaker's Dagenham, U.K., plant that already produces a similar engine for Land Rover that's already on sale.
The diesel engine will only be available on high-end F-150 Lariat, King Ranch, and Platinum models for retail customers, though fleet customers will be able to order the diesel with the less pricey XL and XLT trims. Ford tested this with a F-150 along the Davis Dam in Arizona. A first for Ford in the half-ton truck category, the addition of a compression ignition engine is expected to add incremental sales to a truck that has been the country's bestselling pickup for 41 straight years, and bestselling vehicle of any kind for 36.
When it goes on sale this spring, Ford will offer a 3.0-liter Power Stroke turbodiesel engine in the F-150, the first time in the pickup's 70-year history for a diesel engine under the hood. The mainstream truck with the new engine will deliver 11400 pounds of towing and 2020 pounds of payload capacity. Peak torque arrives at just 1,750 rpm, with the V6 sharing the same compacted-graphite iron block material construction and forged-steel crank used in the 2.7 litre EcoBoost engine.
The diesel will be mated with Ford's 10-speed automatic transmission, calibrated and geared for the new engine's massive low-end torque. It will also come with auto stop-start as a standard feature. It will be available in all trim grades.

The design team paid particular attention to extreme driving conditions in engineering the 3.0L diesel, according to Ford.
A cast-aluminum oil pan and two-stage oil pump for reduced parasitic loss and improved fuel efficiency. For the diesel specifically, there's a mechanical engine-driven fan and dual radiator shutters, boosting performance at high temperatures or high altitudes. David Felipe, vice president of global powertrains for Ford, said he expects 80 percent of diesel F-150 owners to tow with the truck.
Ford boasts the Power Stroke V6 will deliver both efficiency and versatility, with an estimated highway fuel economy rating of 30 miles per gallon, as well as an 11,400-pound towing capacity and a 2,020-lb. payload capacity.
