The Ford F-150 diesel hits 30 mpg highway

Ford's fresh engine includes a 10-speed automated transmission and puts out 250 hp and 4 4 0 lb-ft of torque, which the auto maker claims is very good for upto an 11,400-pound tow ranking and a maximum payload capability of 2,020 lbs, depending upon the setup of the vehicle.

Ford said that the impressive fuel economy figures were the result of more than a decade of labor that included the development of the aluminum body and new 10-speed automatic transmission.

Even better is the estimated 8L/100 km the Ford can achieve on the highway, bettering the 8.8L/100 km rating of the Ram diesel. The four-wheel drive one comes in at just 20/25/22 mpg, a figure on par with most gas-fueled pickups and not far off of the 18/25/21 mpg rating of the most powerful engine available in the F-150, the 3.5-liter twin-turbo V-6.

The first diesel version of the Ford F-150 will be rated at 30 mpg in highway driving, making it the most fuel-efficient full-size pickup on the market when it hits showrooms next month.

The 2019 RAM 1500's carryover 3.6-liter Pentastar V6 adds eTorque, a 48-volt mild hybrid.

Pakistani court bans airing of Sharif's 'anti-judiciary' speeches for 15 days
His job was to bring anti-judiciary remarks on record, he added. "It's guaranteed by the constitution, though within certain limits".

Finally, in the four-wheel-drive fleet models of the 2018 F-150, including the XL and XLT, the new diesel engine will return fuel economy figures of 21mpg in the city, 28mpg on the highway and 24mpg combined. Retail F-150 applications are good for 1,940 pounds of payload. General Motors also announced a new six-cylinder diesel for its Chevrolet Silverado and GMC Sierra pickups. High fuel economy, historically the most compelling factor for diesel auto owners, hasn't been as big a pull for truck owners.

More torque means more towing power.

Fans awaiting the Power Stroke V6 option for the 2018 Ford F-150 can expect to pay up to $4,000 extra for a truck with the diesel powerplant, the Car Connection reports.

But diesel-powered F-150s will require extra coin. Dealers started taking orders in January for delivery starting in May.
