The long-awaited Ford F-150 Power Stroke diesel is finally coming to showrooms in Wyoming and Nebraska!
Other manufacturers such as RAM Trucks have had the RAM 1500 EcoDiesel around for a while. Chevrolet has their smaller Duramax diesel engine in their compact pickup truck, the Colorado. GMC has it in the sister truck, the Canyon. Chevy currently do not have a diesel option in a half-ton truck. So for the longest time, RAM was the only manufacturer making a half-ton diesel. Now the game is changing and Ford has brought out the F-150 Power Stroke diesel to the market.
The first of the diesel F-150’s for the Fremont Motors Group arrives at the Fremont Ford and Lincoln Scottsbluff dealership. More are on the way for other Fremont Ford dealership throughout Wyoming too. We got to see a sneak peek of the new F-150 diesel truck last year at the Denver Auto Show.
Ford boasts, “2018 F-150 3.0-liter Power Stroke® diesel has a best-in-class EPA-estimated fuel economy rating of 30 mpg highway.” According to the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), the F-150 diesel gets 30mpg, in a 2WD configuration. The 4WD F-150 diesel gets an estimated 20 mpg in the city, 25 mpg on the highway and 22 mpg combined.
Ford has said in a press release that the truck is “best-in-class 11,400 pounds of towing capacity and 2,020 pounds of payload capacity, plus best-in-class diesel 250 horsepower and 440 lb.-ft. of torque.” Manufacturers usually calculate their max towing capacities based one the lightest base model truck as this give the highest rating.”
The all-new 3.0L Power Stroke Diesel on the F-150 will be optional on the top 3 trims; Lariat, King Ranch and Platinum with the SuperCab or SuperCrew in 4WD. The diesel will not be an option on the Regular Cab or the 163.7″ wheelbase. (This is the SuperCab with the 8′ box).
