The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) has rated the 2018 Ford F-150 Diesel truck in 2WD and 4×4 configurations. The first-ever turbo-diesel F-150 is powered by a 3.0L Power Stroke V6 engine with a rating of 250 hp and 440 lb-ft of torque. The engine is mated to a 10-speed automatic transmission.
Ford has initially estimated the 2WD regular cab F-150 Diesel at 30 MPG on the highway. The EPA confirms the rating for the two-wheel-drive base truck at 22 MPG in the city, 30 MPG on the highway, and 25 MPG combined. This is a best in class fuel economy rating for a half-ton light duty pickup truck.
The more interesting rating is the 4×4 version of the truck, which gets a 20 MPG in the city, 25 MPG on the highway, and 22 MPG combined.
The XL and XLT trim levels will be available to commercial fleet customers only. These trucks get a maximum payload rating of 2,020 lbs, and maximum towing rating of 11,400 lbs. The consumer-version of the truck will be available in Lariat, King Ranch, and Platinum trim levels. The maximum payload rating for these trucks goes down to 1,940 lbs.
Pricing for these trucks ranges from around $31,790 for an F-150 Diesel XL and on to a fully-loaded King Ranch version at $68,810.
