For that price hike, buyers will get a 3.0-liter turbodiesel that makes 250 horsepower and 440 pound-feet of torque mated to Ford's 10-speed automatic transmission and two- or four-wheel drive. That's the EPA highway figure Ford has targeted, which would match the midsize Chevy Colorado diesel's rating, but in a much larger and more powerful package.
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.
Ford Motor Co. will offer a diesel F-150 for the first time ever this spring. The F-150 joins the Chevrolet Colorado/GMC Canyon and Nissan Titan XD as non-heavy-duty trucks on sale today. The engine also uses a mechanical engine-driven fan and dual radiator shutters to provide improved performance in high temperature and high-altitude environments.
It's been a not-so-secret secret that Ford's been angling to shove a diesel engine into the latest generation of F-150 pickup. This revolutionary construction lightened the load by 700 pounds, allowing engineers to invest in additional technologies to further improve towing and payload capability, as well as greater fuel economy, even when towing.
6 killed in blast near Balochistan Assembly

Although diesel's popularity has waned in passenger vehicles in the US, truck buyers have asked for the engine option for its increased towing capacity and longer fuel range. Shift points and gear ratios are maximized in order to optimize power, low-rpm torque and efficiency, and the transmission can non-sequentially select the right gear ratio based on the operator's needs.
Orders for the new diesel F-150 will be open by mid-January, with deliveries commencing by spring. Retail customers can choose this engine option for 2018 F-150 Lariat, King Ranch and Platinum edition SuperCrew trucks with either a 5.5-foot or 6.5-foot bed configuration, and SuperCab trucks with a 6.5-foot bed configuration. The compacted graphite iron block and 16.1:1 compression ratio carry over, but the crankshaft, crank and rod bearings, fuel injection system, turbocharger, and exhaust crossover pipe all required re-engineering to withstand the more severe duty cycle this engine was expected to face in an F-150. With an 11,400-lb max, the diesel tows 200 lbs less than an F-150 with the 5.0-liter V8; the champion drivetrain is still the 3.5-liter EcoBoost V6, with an impressive 13,200-lb towing max. The final assembly for the truck is Ford's Dearborn truck plant.
The all-new 3.0-liter Power Stroke is available for both 4×2 and 4×4 F-150 pickups.
