The 2018 Ford F-150 pickup truck comes with a 3.0L Diesel option, facilitating relatively high fuel efficiency relative to other pickup trucks. The truck (the FWD model, to be specific) achieves 30 mpg on the highway, 22 mpg in the city, and 25 MPG combined.
This is a major improvement over the gasoline-powered versions, offering several MPG more on average than they do. That being said, a hybrid pickup truck could save more fuel than a Diesel model. This is important, considering the premium (thousands of dollars more than gas models) that Diesel engines attract. Fortunately, a hybrid F-150 is on its way!
The 2018 Ford F-150 FWD Diesel pickup offers a reasonable 250 HP at 3,250 RPM, and 440 foot-pounds of torque at 1,750 RPM. That’s great for towing, offering an impressive towing capacity of 11,400 pounds.
