2018 Ford F-150 Boasts Impressive 30 MPG Highway Rating

The 2018 Ford F-150’s first 3.0L Power Stroke diesel engine officially boasts EPA-estimated ratings of 30 mpg highway, 22 mpg city and 25 mpg combined. These are the highest EPA-estimated ratings available in a full-size pickup truck.

These benchmark figures are the result of more than a decade of work developing a lightweight high-strength, military-grade, aluminum-alloy body, a 10-speed SelectShift transmission, and robust engine construction of aluminum and compacted graphite iron to deliver durability, reduced weight and stump-pulling torque.

In addition to its leading fuel economy ratings, the new F-150 Power Stroke boasts 250 horsepower and a stout 440 pound-feet of torque. It provides best-in-class diesel towing of 11,400 pounds for pulling boats, horses or RVs. The new V6 diesel also provides best-in-class diesel payload—2,020 pounds for XL and XLT fleet applications, and 1,940 pounds for retail applications to haul a slide-in truck camper.

The 2018 Ford F-150 with the 3.0L V6 Power Stroke diesel engine will begin shipping to dealers in May.
