2018 Ford F-150 Debuts with New Diesel Engine and More Tech

Just ahead of its hometown auto show in Detroit, the refreshed 2018 Ford F-150 was revealed with more technology, a new diesel engine, and a segment-first 10-speed transmission.

The biggest news with the 2018 Ford F-150 is the availability of an all-new 3.0-liter Power Stroke turbo diesel engine, which marks the first time the popular pickup is offered with a diesel. Although output for this new engine has not been fully revealed, expect it to be both fuel efficient and well-suited for towing.

The refreshed truck also replaces the base 3.5-liter V6 with a more efficient 3.3L unit that is expected to offer the same 282 horsepower and 253 pound-feet of torque as the engine it replaces. The second-generation 2.7L EcoBoost also gets tweaked for better efficiency, more output, and better durability and will be paired with the new 10-speed transmission. Not to be left out, the 5.0L V8 also gets upgraded for higher output and will also be hooked up to the new 10-speed. Ford has not yet announced specific output for the upgraded engines but has confirmed that stop/start will be standard on all F-150s.

Wonder if they fixed the blue goo and EGR nightmare yet?

I like the updated grille. I drove some Volvo's in Europe with stop/start diesels and found it a little unnerving, not a fan.

Yeah that Stop/Start shit with the direct injection gas engine (I guess it figures they do it with diesels too) is freaky. As a technician its hard to be comfortable with an engine that rotates backwards before firing. But, thats the future i guess.

I'm curious how the new small diesel will compete with the Ecoboosts. I guess they feel like there is a market there. Seems like a lot of engines available (v6, 2 ecoboosts, a V8 and now a diesel).

It makes no mention of the 3.5L ecoboost. It mentions the base 3.5L V6 which isn't the optional ecoboost 3.5L.
I'm not not sure about the grill, but I just got used to the last one.
My wife has an Escape with start/stop. I don't care about it one way or the other. There is a button on the dash to turn it off.
