Ford Management says that 30mpg F-150 diesel pickup truck wins the surprise mileage crown. The Ford F-150 is the first diesel edition that will be rated at 30mpg in freeway driving, which makes it the best and most fuel-efficient and resourceful full-size pickup that will be available in the showrooms by next month.
The company, earlier this year, aimed at 30mpg for the rear-wheel-drive model. On Thursday it announced the authorized EPA estimates for the pickup. The pickup truck will be tagged with 22mpg in city driving and pooled 25mpg.
The 2018 Ram 1500 diesel is the only other diesel pickup is considered as the light-duty big trucks that contain an EPA rating of 27mpg on the freeway.
Surprising Automobile Drivers Around the World
Hau Thai-Tang, an executive vice president for PDP (Product Development and Purchasing) at Ford said in a statement that “Even a few years ago, customers wouldn’t have imagined an EPA-estimated rating of 30 mpg highway would be possible in a full-size pickup, but our team of crazy-smart engineers rose to the challenge.”
The Power Stroke 3.0lts engine is a component of the F-150’s mid-cycle ventilation. It is designed to attract customers who are looking for more than the usual.
Powerful Engine Without an Environmental Cost
The diesel engine comes with 440lbs feet of torque and 250hp, which is considered as the leading full-size diesel Ram 1500 pickup truck. It also comes with outstanding payload capacity compared to other diesel trucks. It offers the diesel 2,020 pounds for XLT and XL convoy applications and 1,940 for the market applications.
The Ford 2018 Ram 1500 can tow large loads up to 11,400 pounds also considered as the best choice among full-size and light-duty diesel pickups. The diesel engine is designed to withstand Ford’s ten-speed transmission that was initially introduced on the F-150 in 2017.
Ford said that it anticipates the diesel engine reported for about 5 percent of retail sales. The cost will be between 2,400 dollars to 4,000 dollars, which is more than other F-150 engines.
The retail customers can obtain the diesel on the three main F-150 trims, including King Ranch, Lariat, and Platinum. The fleet customers get the diesel in the affordable XLT and XL trims.
However, F-150 is the first full-size truck to break the 30mpg wall, and also the Chevrolet Colorado midsize pickup truck has also reached the mark.
