The 2018 Ford F-150 Diesel Carries the Load

Whether you’re a contractor, small business owner, or somebody who needs to tow a trailer, you likely require a pickup truck with a capable powertrain. Luckily, here at Bill Colwell Ford, we have a pickup truck that was designed to meet your needs: the 2018 Ford F-150 Diesel. This tough pickup truck boasts its most advanced powertrain lineup yet, and the available diesel engine can handle practically any task that you throw at it. 

The diesel engine is one of six available engines on the 2018 Ford F-150, and it’s the one that you’ll want to choose if you’re looking for the most power. This naturally aspirated and turbocharged diesel is a 3.0-liter Power Stroke V6 Turbo Diesel that’s available on the LARIAT, King Ranch, and Platinum trim levels of the new Ford truck. It boasts best-in-class horsepower of 250 at 3,250 RPM and best-in-class diesel torque of 440 lb-ft at 1,750 RPM. The maximum payload capacity with this engine equipped is 2,311 pounds, while the maximum towing capacity is a massive 13,200 pounds. To top it all off, the efficient diesel engine achieves up to 30 miles per gallon on the highway. 

So what sets the Power Stroke Diesel engine apart from competing diesel engines? Well, first of all, it’s backed by the Built Ford Tough durability testing and it’s constructed with graphite iron block material construction and forged-steel crank, which reduced weight and increases durability. It’s also paired with the innovative 10-speed automatic transmission with SelectShift capability, progressive range select, and tow/haul mode. Peak operational temperature is maintained by the Active Grille Shutters, which work to keep the diesel engine running warm in colder weather in the Cedar Falls, IA area. 

If you’re in need of a pickup truck that can carry the load, test drive the 2018 Ford F-150 diesel here at Bill Colwell Ford.
