The 3.0-liter engine, built in Great Britain, is a variant of the Lion diesel that Ford builds for its Land Rover and Jaguar vehicles. Ford will begin taking deliveries for the 2018 F-150 with the Power Stoke V6 diesel engine beginning in January, and deliveries set to begin this spring.

According to Ford, 70 percent of F-150 owners tow with their pickups.

Ford's diesel V-6 shared technology with the 6.7-liter Power Stroke engine that has powered its Super Duty trucks since 2011.

Monday morning, Ford revealed details of the new diesel-powered 2018 Ford F-150 Power Stroke, which it claims will achieve an EPA-estimated fuel-economy rating of 30 mpg highway when it goes on sale this spring. The mainstream truck with the new engine will deliver 11400 pounds of towing and 2020 pounds of payload capacity. Design highlights include a graphite-iron block, forged steel crankshaft (shared with Ford's turbocharged 2.7-liter EcoBoost gasoline V6), a two-stage oil pump, a variable geometry turbocharger, and a common rail injection system pressurized to 29,000 pounds per square inch. The transmission can non-sequentially select gear ratio based on need, the company noted, and standard auto start-stop functionality boosts fuel efficiency and reduces emissions.

The new driveline will be available in various trims and body configurations for both 2-wheel-drive and 4-wheel-drive trucks.

U.S. searches of int'l travelers' electronic devices soar in 2017
However, this policy still falls far short of what the Constitution requires - a search warrant based on probable cause. However, the agency stressed that only around 0.007 per cent of incoming worldwide travellers had their devices checked.

One thing it's never had is a diesel engine, until now.

Ford said F-150 will have an advanced power-train lineup with a best in class torque.

At times when the truck isn't being pushed quite so hard, the mechanical fan's viscous coupler allows for more slip, reducing the load on the engine, while a pair of radiator shutters closes to improve aerodynamic efficiency.

Ford says dealers will open order books for the diesel toward the middle of this month, but you may want to prepare for some price shock.
