2018 Ford F-150 Diesel Best-in-Class Towing and Hauling Ratings
After dominating the pickup truck segment for over 40 years, Ford cemented its spot atop the class for another 40 years with its announcement that an all-new diesel engine option is coming to the new F-150 lineup for the first time ever. As exciting as that announcement is, however, it means nothing if that all-new diesel engine isn’t as powerful, capable and efficient as the other five 2018 Ford F-150 engine choices. But who are we kidding – of course it is. In fact, the 2018 Ford F-150’s diesel engine will provide best-in-class diesel towing and hauling ratings when it arrives at Brandon Ford in Tampa, FL, this spring. This surely has you wondering what those ratings are, so let’s check them out right here.
What’s the Most You Can Tow and Haul with the New Ford F-150’s All-New Diesel Engine?
As we mentioned, you’re getting best-in-class diesel towing capabilities with the 3.0-liter Power Stroke V6 diesel engine of the 2018 Ford F-150 Diesel. More specifically, you’ll be able to tow up to 11,400 pounds. You’re also getting best-in-class diesel payload capabilities with the all-new diesel engine for the new Ford F-150 at Brandon Ford. In fact, you’ll be able to haul up to 2,020 pounds. And you’ll be able to do all of this while getting up to an estimated 30 miles per gallon on the highway. That’s a combination of capability and efficiency that was long thought impossible. But, if you look at the history of Ford trucks, they’ve always been doing things long thought not possible.
“For every truck owner who wants strong fuel economy while they tow and haul, we offer a new 3.0-liter Power Stroke V6 engine that dreams are made of. The more you tow and the longer you haul, the more you’ll appreciate its class-leading towing and payload capacity and how efficient it is at the pump.” – Dave Filipe, Vice President Global Powertrain Engineering
