Ford Motor Company set to launch diesel truck

Ford Motor Company set to launch diesel truck

Earlier this week, Ford announced that the 2018 Ford F-150 will be offered in a diesel engine. Ford will start taking orders for the new diesel F-150 this month.

With hundreds of thousands of pickups sold in the USA each year, it may be no surprise that Ford would consider adding more variety to its powertrain lineup. "Ford of Europe's expertise in diesel extends beyond manufacturing". Of course the estimated 30 mpg doesn't hurt either!

For those that tow their show or race cars the Ford F-Series Super Duty with Power Stroke diesel has been the go to hauler for decades.

Ford expects around 5 percent of F-150 buyers will opt for the diesel, which costs Dollars 4,000 on the Lariat and Platinum versions or USD 3,000 on the King Ranch.

It Looks Like Black Widow's Solo Movie Is Still Happening
Scarlett Johansson is set to return as Black Widow which is a role she first got in 2010 following the release of Iron Man 2 . I would say certainly the one creatively and emotionally that we are most committ [ed] to doing is Black Widow ", said Feige.

The Super Duty trucks - dubbed "Super Dirty" by the lawyer behind the class-action suit - use a "reverse" exhaust layout that puts the catalytic reduction before the particulate filter (DPF). The final assembly for the truck is Ford's Dearborn truck plant.

The new 3.0L V-6 diesel is based off of the 2.7L EcoBoost block and crank, but uses a single turbo and engine driven cooling fan.

"We know that we have available powertrains globally, but we just can't take those...and put them in the F-Series", said David Felipe, vice president of global powertrains for Ford. The dispute also casts a shadow on Ford's F-Series, the top-selling line of vehicles in the US every year since 1981. This allowed Ford to market both fuel efficiency and power in its vehicles without compromise. Felipe said the after-treatment should provide roughly 10,000 miles of driving range before replenishing. It costs $4,000 more than a similarly equipped 2.7-liter V-6 Lariat, or $2,400 over a similar 3.5-liter V-6 version. Fleet customers will be able to opt for it on the lower XL and XLT trims. "Our Dagenham Diesel Centre, UK, is a centre of excellence for the development of sophisticated diesel engines, including the 2.0-litre Ford EcoBlue and all-new 1.5-litre Ford EcoBlue". The towing capacity for that EcoBoost truck is 8.500 lb. Nissan charged $5,550 for the Cummins diesel in the Titan.

Diesel is dead. Long live diesel. The Ram 1500 previously offered a light-duty diesel, but it's unclear if it will return in 2018.
