Ford F-150 Power Stroke diesel fuel economy is amazing!

This is both excellent and not so excellent news for Ford… Are you ready for this? The new 2018 Ford F-150 Power Stroke 3.0L diesel-powered full-size, light-duty pickup truck has the same EPA-estimated combined fuel consumption rating as… a 2018 EcoBoost 2.0L 4-cylinder Ford Fusion, with FWD! With AWD, it’s almost 10% more! And more importantly, these results crush all of the RAM 1500’s EcoDiesel numbers.

We’re blown away too.

The actual individual ratings are 30 mpg highway (8.0 L /100km), 22 mpg city (10.8 L/ 100km) and 25 mpg (9.5 L/100km) combined. These are amazing numbers for a powertrain that provides 440 lb.-ft. of torque at just 1,750 rpm. With the 3.0L Power Stroke turbo diesel V6, the F-150 can tow up to 11,400 lbs (5,170 kg) and has a 2,020 lbs (916kg) payload capacity. The Fusion can tow only 2,000 lbs (909 kg) …

We’re actually excited about the new Power Stroke V6. We’ll be driving the new truck next week so make sure you come back for our full review.
