The 2018 Ford F-150 received some pleasing upgrades, including new styling for the front and rear of the truck, new wheel designs, and new driver assistance technologies. Ford also introduced the first-ever diesel engine for the F-150: the Power Stroke diesel.

The 3.0-liter Power Stroke diesel engine delivers an impressive balance of performance and efficiency. It generates an output of 250-hp and 440 lb-ft of torque. If you have towing needs, the F-150 Power Stroke can tow up to 11,400 and has a payload capacity of 1,940 pounds. The power output, towing capacity, and payload capacity for the F-150 Power Stroke are the highest for a diesel truck in the full-size pickup segment. You’ll be saving plenty of money at the gas pump with the efficient F-150 Power Stroke and its estimated fuel economy of 22 city/30 highway mpg. These are best-in-class efficiency ratings.

Other attributes that enable the F-150 Power Stroke to achieve the impressive power, capacities, and efficiency include its lightweight high-strength aluminum alloy body, the smooth-shifting and efficient 10-speed SelectShift transmission, and the unique engine construction, which combines aluminum with graphite iron for greater durability, lower weight, and high-level torque.
