It was introduced to much acclaim in 2018.
One of the reasons for dropping it is customers opting for the cheaper Ecoboost V6.
It will remain available until the end of this week.
We suspect that this powertrain will become a sought-after commodity on the used truck market. The Power Stroke diesel engine option for the Ford F-150 costs nearly $4,000 in the US and just shy of $7,500 in Canada and this could explain why Ford will no longer offer the powerplant.
Alternatives such as the powerful and popular EcoBoost V6 and the recently introduced PowerBoost hybrid engines do render the Power Stroke somewhat obsolete – in fact, very few buyers would select the option. Even so, its 250 horsepower, 440 lb.-ft. of torque, promised 23-24 mpg, expected durability, and strong tow rating will ensure that it will be sought-after as a pre-owned F-150 feature.
Although not stated in Yahoo’s story, emissions could be another consideration for the Power stroke’s demise. Ford has recently introduced the Lightning all-electric version of the F-150 and it is, without a doubt, the way of the future.
