New F-150 Power Stroke Diesel Engine Delivers Best-in-Class Estimated Highway Mileage

Recently, Ford reported that the first ever 3.0-liter Power Stroke® V6 diesel engine to be offered for the 2018 F-150 pickup earned an EPA-estimated fuel economy rating of 30 mpg on the highway -- giving the workhorse top marks in its class!

Not only is this Power Stroke engine highly efficient, but it also offers you best-in-class diesel 250 horsepower and 440 pound-feet of torque, along with class-leading diesel towing and payload capacity. This means that the 2018 Ford F-150, when equipped with this engine, puts more torque at your disposal than does a 2019 Ram 1500 that's powered by a Hemi V8.

A Ford F-150 pickup that boasts this engine has a best-in-class diesel tow rating of 11,400 pounds -- making it the ideal choice to pull your RV, boat or horse trailer. Then there's the 1,940 payload capacity -- which increases to 2,020 pounds for fleet orders of the F-150 XL or F-150 XLT trims.

In a press release, Hau Thai-Tang, Ford executive vice president, product development and purchasing, remarked, "Even a few years ago, customers wouldn’t have imagined an EPA-estimated rating of 30 mpg highway would be possible in a full-size pickup, but our team of crazy-smart engineers rose to the challenge."

At Ken Pollock Ford, we're proud to serve drivers from the Hazleton, Bloomsburg, Mountain Top and Benton, PA areas.
