Ford introduces first ever diesel F-150 engine

Ford has developed its first ever diesel motor for the F-150. The all-new 3.0-liter V6 Power Stroke unit promises 250ps, 440 lb-ft of torque and an anticipated 5175kg of towing capacity.

The OEMs latest development now makes for six engine choices for the F-150 pickup.

“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,” said Dave Filipe, vice president at Ford.

“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.”

Designed by the powertrain team behind the 6.7-liter Power Stroke for super-duty trucks, the 3.0-liter unit is engineered specifically for towing. This means strong torque delivery throughout the RPM range and peak torque availability at 1,750rpm.

The new diesel motor features the same compacted-graphite iron block material construction and forged-steel crank used in the 2.7-liter EcoBoost engine for added strength and durability along with reduced weight.

Particular attention was paid to extreme driving conditions during development, including a mechanical engine-driven fan and dual radiator shutters for improved high temperature, high-altitude performance.

“We know that competing diesels with electric cooling fans have to dial back on power under extreme heat and altitude, so we decided on a viscous-controlled mechanical fan that has the capacity to move much more air across the radiator and intercooler in extreme conditions,” said David Ives, Ford diesel engine technical specialist.

“This gives F-150 Power Stroke owners more power and more passing capability in harsh conditions.”

Calibrated specifically for the 3.0-liter diesel, a standard SelectShift 10-speed automatic transmission maximizes shift points and gear ratios to optimize power, low-RPM torque and efficiency.
