The first-ever 2018 Ford F-150 Diesel is finally here. We had an opportunity to drive several versions of this truck, and the F-150 Diesel should start arriving at your local Ford dealership in May 2018. While driving impressions are still embargoed until early tomorrow, we wanted to take a close look at how the new 3.0L Power Stroke turbo-diesel compares to another premium engine choice – the 3.5L EcoBoost V6. Which one would you buy? It is the $2,400 question, since this is how much the new diesel costs over the existing top-dog EcoBoost.
