A post shared by Ford Motor Company (@ford) on

The Ford F-150 remains a mainstay of the American automotive industry. Having earned the title of “best-selling vehicle in America” every year over the past forty years, the Ford F-150 remains uniquely capable with an array of accolades attesting its status as the premier domestic pickup truck. Offering a powerful and efficient diesel engine as a powertrain option, the Ford F-150 surpasses comparable models with its variety of performance options.

Why Diesel?

Diesel engines remain an ideal choice for drivers seeking heavy-duty towing and hauling capabilities. Able to withstand heavy-duty usage and offering drivers extended service intervals due to their mechanical nature, the Ford F-150's 3.0-liter Power Stroke® Turbo Diesel provides best-in class horsepower and torque specifications. Diesel engines lack a sparkplug, and rely on compression to ignite the fuel within the cylinder. Additionally, diesel engines operate at lower RPMs and have longer stroke lengths - this means diesel engines reach peak torque at lower RPMs, requiring less strain on the engine and less fuel to perform tasks that gas engines would strain to accomplish. Ideal for towing and hauling, diesel engines remain the optimal choice due to their typically better fuel efficiency, high-torque output, and low service requirements.

The Ford F-150: Best-in-Class Accolades

As mentioned above, the Ford F-150's Power Stroke® diesel engine produces a Best-in-Class 250 horsepower and 440 pound-feet. Achieving maximum torque output at low RPMs, the 3.0-liter diesel engine found within the properly equipped F-150 outstrips comparable models with its smaller or matching displacement, yet more formidable power specifications. Amending the Ford F-150's numerous other best-in-class specifications for towing, hauling and payload, the Ford F-150's diesel option remains the ideal choice for drivers seeking unrivaled heavy-duty performance capabilities.
