Ford is securing their foothold on the American truck market with the release of the F-150 Diesel. With an all-new 3.0-liter Power Stroke V6 diesel engine that delivers best-in-class towing and payload with a targeted EPA-estimated 30 MPG you’ll be able to tackle any terrain while pulling your precious vintage race car.
Whether you’re looking for a reliable daily vehicle, something to play in the mud with, or to haul your classic Porsche - the F-150 Diesel provides utility and performance. With 250 horsepower and 440 lb-ft torque the F-150 Diesel has a towing capacity of 11,400 pounds and 2,020 pounds of payload making it perfect to pull your Airstream or load up your cafe racer.
We had the opportunity to get behind the wheel to explore the roads of Colorado and were impressed with the overall comfort and capability of the truck. Through steep inclines, rough terrain, and even in the mud the F-150 easily tackled each challenge. The brake assist on dramatic declines helps ensure peace of mind in sketchy situations. Even while pulling a large boat for the first time, the truck ensured confidence and allowed us to navigate through the countryside without any worry.
Visually, the Ford F-150 makes its presence known with its bold body lines, angular curves, and a strong stance. The all-new 3.0-liter Power Stroke is available in both 4x2 and 4x4 F-150 trucks and in three variants - Lariat, King Ranch, and Platinum edition. The models can be outfitted with state of the art technology from available Pro Trailer Backup Assist to 360-degree camera technology making it easy to park the large truck even with trailer in-tow and luxury comforts such as seat massagers, which after a long day’s work can be a nice treat. For audiophiles, the new B&O PLAY audio system is available as an addition for a more rich and engaging audio experience.
It’s really no surprise the Ford F-150 has earned multiple awards including the coveted Motor Trend Truck of the Year honor. The Lariat starts at a reasonable $41,015 and can scale to upwards of $60,000 and above for the Limited.
