Ford F-150 is now also available with a Diesel

Dearborn (USA), 11. January 2018

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. For The Record: Five-Point-One!

Exciting technical Details

In the so-called Super-Duty models the Ford F-series, which are significantly more commercial vehicles, since 2011, a gigantic V8 Diesel engine with 446 horsepower and 1,170 Newton meters. The developer team has also designed the three-liter V6 Diesel and a variety of solutions from the big brother. 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.

Beginning in the spring of 2018 in the USA

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. However, some time ago, no one would have expected an official Import of the Mustang.(rh)
