None is in the USA more popular than he is: Almost 900,000 new registrations of the Ford F-150 was recorded in the year 2017. And as long as the gallon of Fuel is, in part, still cheaper than a gallon of Cola, will not disturb the customers, not the V6 and V8 petrol engines with 286 to 462 HP of power. But it must, apparently, give the F-150-friends, desperate for a Diesel. Their supplication was answered, at the auto show NAIAS in Detroit (15. to 28. January 2018) is the Ford F-150 with a new "Power Stroke"V6.
We take a look at the key features of the new self-igniter: 250 PS and 597 nm of torque are waiting to be used, is standard on a ten-speed automatic transmission on Board. Especially for heavy-duty Fans of the Diesel F-150 is expected to be the first choice. 916 kilograms of payload can be transported on the flatbed, the towing capacity is more than 5.1 tons.

Two fuel filters, the reliability can be increased even in poorer fuel quality (the United States is a large country), in addition to a two-stage oil Pump. With a view to extreme thermal loads in the trailer operation, there is a mechanically driven by the engine fan instead of an electrical solution, as well as a two-compartment variable cooling air inlet.
What this means, showed on test rides on a 21-Kilometer climb with an average of six per cent gradient at 37 degrees air temperature, the coped with the F-150 Diesel without loss of performance. However, the plant is expected to back the consumption of eight liters in the distance. Starting in the spring of 2018, the first F-150 are supplied with Diesel in the U.S. market, a choice of long ladders, four wheel drive, two and four doors, and lengths of between 5.31 and 5.89 metres are different. The F-150 would not be well for us, especially with auto-ignition? Now, Ford has in this country already the smaller Ranger in the program.
