The pickup’s new diesel engine shares commercial-grade technology with the proven, powerful 6.7-liter Power Stroke engine found in the 2018 Ford F-Series Super Duty.

“For every truck owner who wants strong fuel economy while they tow and haul, we offer a new 3.0-liter Power Stroke® V6 engine that dreams are made of,” said Dave Filipe, vice president global powertrain engineering. “The more you tow and the longer you haul, the more you’ll appreciate its class-leading towing and payload capacity and how efficient it is at the pump.”

The same team that designed the 6.7-liter Power Stroke engine for Ford Super Duty pickups created the new three-liter Power Stroke V6 diesel engine for the Ford F-150. The all-new three-liter Power Stroke engine produces 250 horsepower and 440 lb-ft of torque, figures which are best-in-class. The new diesel engine for the Ford F-150 has a best-in-class towing capacity of 11,400 pounds and a payload capacity of 2,020 pounds.
