Ford Announces Diesel Option for F-150

USA automaker giant Ford has announced that it will be launching a diesel version of its F-150 pickup truck, one of its most successful models.

Specific to the diesel engine, a 5.4-gallon DEF tank has been added which Ford says should last 10,000 miles before refilling. Design highlights include a graphite-iron block, forged steel crankshaft (shared with Ford's turbocharged 2.7-liter EcoBoost gasoline V6), a two-stage oil pump, a variable geometry turbocharger, and a common rail injection system pressurized to 29,000 pounds per square inch.

Here's what the sixth engine choice in the F-150 is all about: 250 ponies, 440 pound-feet, 11,400 pounds of maximum towing capacity, and 2,020 pounds of maximum payload capacity.

Monday morning, Ford revealed details of the new diesel-powered 2018 Ford F-150 Power Stroke, which it claims will achieve an EPA-estimated fuel-economy rating of 30 mpg highway when it goes on sale this spring.

"We needed someone to go out there and score 75 or 80 and we need to sit down and talk about stringing together partnerships". We needed to bat better than what we did. "But if we get a lively wicket our bowlers can exploit their batting again".

"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", David Ives, Ford diesel engine technical specialist, said in the announcement.

Diesel also is an option on rival Ram and Nissan full-size trucks, which means Ford is playing some catch up in that size class, though its F-150 is the nation's best-selling vehicle.

The company has announced that it will begin to take orders for the new Ford f-150 in mid-January, with delivers expected to begin in the Spring of 2018. Ford tested this with a F-150 along the Davis Dam in Arizona. It costs $4,000 more than a similarly equipped 2.7-liter V-6 Lariat, or $2,400 over a similar 3.5-liter V-6 version.

Fleet customers will be able to order the diesel engine on the less expensive XL and XLT SuperCab or SuperCrew cabs with 6.5- or 8.0-foot beds. The OEM called the 2018 F-150 with this latest engine "the most efficient F-150 towing machine ever". "This gives F-150 Power Stroke owners more power and more passing capability in harsh conditions".
