There's good news for fans of diesel power who are interested in a new F-150. The new model is now available with a Power Stroke turbo diesel engine.

Since the late 90s, Power Stroke diesel engines have been a favorite among truck drivers who need serious towing capability. Diesel's potential for maximizing torque has been a boon to Ford's heavy-duty truck lineup, allowing for unique performance not typically found in conventional gasoline engines.

Up until recently, Power Stroke engines were reserved for Ford's heavy-duty trucks like the F-250 and F-350. Now, however, you can count the F-150 full-size pickup among the vehicles offered with a Power Stroke diesel powerplant option.

The diesel engine available in the F-150 is different from that found in heavy-duty models, though. Instead of a V8, the F-150 gets a 3.0-liter turbo diesel V6. This engine is able to produce 250 horsepower and 440 pound-feet of torque. That means diesel-equipped F-150 models can tow up to 11,400 pounds or haul up to 1,940 pounds of payload.

And It's not just power that you'll get with the diesel engine. Unladen, the 3.0-liter Power Stroke engine can help the F-150 reach up to 30 mpg highway. That's a feat rarely achieved by a full-size truck of any kind.

You can test out the new 3.0-liter Power Stroke diesel engine in a 2019 F-150 here at Suburban Ford of Waterford. Just give us a ring and we'll set up your test drive appointment.
