The 2018 Ford F-150 fitted with its first 3.0L Power Stroke diesel engine will deliver EPA-estimated ratings of 30 mpg on the highway, 22 mpg in the city, and 25 mpg combined, according to the automaker. These are the highest EPA-estimated ratings available in a full-size pickup truck.

These benchmark figures are the result of more than a decade of work developing a lightweight high-strength, military-grade, aluminum-alloy body, a 10-speed SelectShift transmission, and robust engine construction of aluminum and compacted graphite iron to deliver durability, reduced weight, and torque, according to Ford.

“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,” said Hau Thai-Tang, Ford’s executive vice president of product development and purchasing.

In addition to its leading fuel economy ratings, the F-150 Power Stroke diesel will make 250 hp and 440 lb.-ft. of torque. The truck can tow up to 11,400 pounds and haul payload of 2,020 pounds for XL and XLT fleet applications, and 1,940 pounds for retail applications.

F-150 Power Stroke diesel shares its technology with F-Series Super Duty’s 6.7L Power Stroke. It will begin shipping to dealers in May.
