You Have Until the End of this Week to Select the Power Stroke Diesel Engine for your New Ford F-150


  • 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.

2018 Ford F-150 Power Stroke Diesel First Review

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.
