Ford adds Power Stroke Diesel Option to F-150 Truck Platform

2017 Ford Super Duty F-250

Ford detailed this week its 2018 F-150 Power Stroke diesel engine, the first time a diesel has been offered in the mega-selling pickup in its 70-year history, and the sixth engine configuration available to shoppers today.

Ford is, of course, just one of numerous carmakers alleged to have cheated on emissions testing with their diesel engines. Peak torque is delivered from 1,750 rpm, contributing to the F-150's 11,400lb (5,171kg) towing capacity and 2,020lb (916kg) payload capacity, alongside targeted EPA-estimated 30mpg highway rating fuel-efficiency, according to USA testing conventions. Ford will start taking orders for the new diesel F-150 this month.

Standalone Black Widow Movie May Happen with Jac Schaeffer on Script
The character is already confirmed to appear in the yet-to-be-titled fourth Avengers movie, which opens on May 3, 2019. Black Widow is reportedly in very early stages of development, and the film has yet to be greenlit.

However, the law firm said that Ford marketed and sold these trucks as the "cleanest Super Diesel ever", and said it used "proven technology and innovative Ford strategies to meet the latest federal emissions standards". Diesel is more expensive than gasoline ($2.91 per gallon vs. $2.49, according to AAA on January 8, 2017), so the annual fuel costs for an F-150 using Ford's 2.7L EcoBoost V-6 gasoline engine should be about the same as the diesel. Retail customers can get the engine as an option on the 2018 F-150 Lariat, King Ranch and Platinum edition SuperCrew trucks with either a 5.5 foot or 6.5 foot bed configuration, and SuperCab trucks with a 6.5-food bed. While the Ford engine and the Land Rover powerplant share similar displacements, block architecture, and outputs (254 hp in the Land Rover vs. 250 hp in the Ford), engineers from Ford said the two engines have key differences.

The Super Duty trucks - dubbed "Super Dirty" by the lawyer behind the class-action suit - use a "reverse" exhaust layout that puts the catalytic reduction before the particulate filter (DPF). This allowed Ford to market both fuel efficiency and power in its vehicles without compromise. Ford is actually leading the weight race with its aluminum F-150, which still a top seller. Fleet customers will be able to opt for it on the lower XL and XLT trims.

The executive said he is committed to doing whatever Eddy Cue, Tim Cook and Apple need him to do to take the service all the way. Iovine is definitely still committed to the Apple cause but he admits he doesn't want to stick with the music business forever.

Although diesel's popularity has waned in passenger vehicles in the USA, truck buyers have asked for the engine option for its increased towing capacity and longer fuel range.
