F-150 Power Stroke diesel shares its proven commercial-grade technology with F-Series Super Duty's 6.7-liter Power Stroke - America's most powerful, capable heavy-duty pickup truck ever.

And just like your old Schwinn bike, the diesel F-150 uses a 10-speed automatic to ensure the engine is always at the ideal rpm.

Ford's fresh engine includes a 10-speed automated transmission and puts out 250 hp and 4 4 0 lb-ft of torque, which the auto maker claims is very good for upto an 11,400-pound tow ranking and a maximum payload capability of 2,020 lbs, depending upon the setup of the vehicle. The official EPA highway evaluation rating for trucks with an 3.0-liter turbodiesel V6 will be thirty mpg in the highway and also 2-2 mpg on the planet, Ford introduced on Thursday.

Ford announced that its new F-150 Power Stroke Diesel has earned an EPA-estimated fuel economy rating of 22 mpg city/30 mpg highway.

"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", Hau Thai-Tang, Ford's executive vice president for product development and purchasing, said in a statement. Curiously, that's almost 2,000 pounds shy of the maximum trailer rating for a properly-equipped gas-engined F-150.

We dug a little deeper into the numbers, though, and found that the F-150 diesel may be a hard sell. We'll see a 3.0-liter Duramax diesel in both the 2019 GMC Sierra 1500 and Chevrolet Silverado 1500 and Ram will continue to be in the mix with a refreshed EcoDiesel V6 in the 2019 Ram 1500. The Ram with four-wheel drive and the diesel is rated at 19/27/22 mpg.

Considering that the F-150 is already one of the best selling vehicles in the world, this newly available diesel power should solidify that for many more years to come.

Power for towing and payload are the strongest draws for diesel truck buyers. Dealers started taking orders in January for delivery starting in May.
