No more Ford F-150 Power Stroke diesel option after this Friday
Ford made many trucking enthusiasts happy when it announced a long-awaited diesel option for the F-150 for the 2018 model year. But after only three short years, Ford's partnership with the F-150 Power Stroke Diesel comes to an end. In fact, if you want a special order it must be done before the week ends.
The report of the loss of the diesel option of the F-150 was first reported by the Ford Authority and subsequently confirmed by The Drive. It seems to make sense on paper. The 250 horsepower and 440 pound-feet of torque of the 3.0-liter V6 diesel are surpassed by the truck's turbo-charged gasoline options.
For example, the 3.5-liter Ecoboost V6 produces 400 horsepower and 510 lb.-ft. of the torque. It also costs just $ 2,595, compared to the diesel's price of $ 4,995 on popular configurations. It also has a higher towing capacity of 14,000 pounds versus the diesel's 12,100.
Then there's the 3.5-liter Powerboost V6 hybrid that returns 430 horsepower and 570 lb.-ft. of the torque. It still costs less than the diesel, at around $ 4,495 depending on the configuration, and draws £ 12,700. It's even closer to the diesel's fuel economy, improving it by 4 mpg in the city while losing 3 mpg on the highway.
However, we are sure that there will still be many truck fans who are sad that the diesel is gone. We thought it would be a fantastic addition to the F-150 range when we tested it in 2018. The diesel has a more serviceable torque curve than its gasoline cousins. Peak power is 3,250 rpm and maximum torque is only 1,750 rpm, while on each of the gasoline engines you have to rev up to 6,000 rpm to get all the horsepower and at least 3,000 rpm to get maximum torque to reach.
According to The Drive, the last day you can order the Power Stroke Diesel for the F-150 is this Friday, July 16. you'd better go fast.
