Ford F-150 3.0L Diesel Arrives in May, Fuel Economy and Power Numbers Announced

Ford just announced that the all-new 3.0L Power Stroke diesel available in the Ford F-150 is in production now and will be arriving at dealers in May.  This small diesel engine is a first for the Ford half-ton and as such was purposely designed to power the popular F-150. 

Along with this production announcement Ford has also now revealed the power and fuel economy numbers of this engine.

EPA estimated ratings are: 7.8L/100km (30mpg) highway and 10.7L/100km (22mpg) city with two-wheel drive.  The engine itself is rated at 250 horsepower and 440 lb-ft of torque. In the F-150 this will translate to a tow rating of up to 11,400 lb and a maximum payload of 2,020 lb.


The small diesel will be coupled to Ford’s 10-speed SelectShift automatic transmission.  The first drive of this new powertrain in the F-150 will be taking place in Denver, in the 4th week of April.

We will have a report after that event, right here on the Truck King website.
