2018 Ford F-150 Diesel Review
The 2018 Ford F-150 Diesel is one of the most anticipated trucks that will hit the streets anytime soon. The Ford has its own creed of buyers, and there’s a rising market demand for a diesel engine light-duty Ford model. There are more than a few things which need to be taken into consideration before speculating on what this model will have. So, read on.
2018 Ford F-150 Diesel – Expectations
A point to consider right from the start, this is a light-duty pickup truck, and it’s meant to give buyers just that utility. This truck is supposed to do the trailering and the payloads with just as much ease.
The Ford has long supplied Land Rover with their diesel engines. So there is no reason not to do the same with their own models. The manufacturer for thought would be asking why they did not add diesel to their setup earlier.
Of all the speculations around, the most obvious inclusion would be a 3.5L Power Stroke Diesel. Competing with RAM 1500, this power unit has the potential to outdo it in power and torque. And that is just what Ford will be aiming to instead of going straight for the top economy. The power specs are inconclusive, and there are no official releases. Its maximum HP will be around and even a bit over 282 HP. Maximum torque is where Ford might add a surprise.
There are insider speculations that this diesel engine may push the boundaries to top the segment with plenty of room to spare. Ford’s power stroke engines are mechanically capable of more torque and this diesel pickup might try touching the 500 lb-ft. threshold. Expected payload capacity should reach 9,000 lbs.
