Ford F-150 diesel EPA-rated at 30 mpg highway

F-150’s 3.0L Power Stroke diesel hits EPA-estimated 30 mpg

The 2018 Ford F-150 Power Stroke will push out 250 horsepower and 440 pound-feet of torque, making it the torquiest of the 2018 full-size pick-ups on the market.

Ford said that the impressive fuel economy figures were the result of more than a decade of labor that included the development of the aluminum body and new 10-speed automatic transmission.

The best-selling truck (or car) in the United States for many years running, the 2018 Ford F-150 can now claim the highest EPA-estimated highway fuel rating bragging rights for a full-sized pickup truck. The 2018 Ford F-150 Power Stroke diesel scored a 30 mpg highway EPA rating, Ford Motor Company (FMC) announced today.

Ford has unveiled the new 3.0L Power Stroke diesel engine for the F-150 and the engine boasts EPA-estimated fuel economy that are the highest available in any full-size truck.




The fullsize truck's city mileage is rated at 22 mpg (10.7 l/100 km), with a combined rating of 25 mpg (9.4 l/100 km). Additionally, its standard gas V-6 will come with 48-volt mild-hybrid technology created to reduce fuel consumption, too-but, again, EPA figures haven't been released. Curiously, that's almost 2,000 pounds shy of the maximum trailer rating for a properly-equipped gas-engined F-150.

If you need a pickup, and want to save as much gas as possible, the F-150 diesel can do that for you. We'll see a 3.0-liter Duramax diesel in both the 2019 GMC Sierra 1500 and Chevrolet Silverado 1500 and Ram will continue to be in the mix with a refreshed EcoDiesel V6 in the 2019 Ram 1500.

We dug a little deeper into the numbers, though, and found that the F-150 diesel may be a hard sell.

Even more exciting is the prospect that an engine like this Power Stroke could eventually find its way into other models like Ford's Expedition and Explorer. Along with the best-in-class fuel economy ratings, the truck has the best in class diesel power. Dealers started taking orders in January for delivery starting in May.
