Welcome to F150Ecoboost.net , the premier Ford F150 Ecoboost Forum
dedicated to all Ford F150 Ecoboost owners and enthusiasts.
While researching F150 Ecoboost trucks on the Internet I noticed there wasn't one solid source of information for these new Ford Trucks. Sure, there are plenty of great F150 Forums that covered every make and model, but when it came to the new twin turbo F150 there wasn't a "goto place" for the information I was looking for. A few months later I purchased my first Ford Truck, a 2012 Ford F150 FX4 with the 3.5 liter Ecoboost motor and F150Ecoboost.net was born! We aim to be a friendly, educational community dedicated to everything about the 2011-2013 F150 Ecoboost line of Ford Trucks.

Ford announced at the 2017 Detroit Auto Show that the 2018 F150 will get a new PowerStroke 3.0L diesel V6, but the automaker didnít offer any details on that new engine, so today we look at the possible engine details for the first diesel-powered half ton F-Series pickup. We know two things about the engine HP and torque power of 2018 F 150, originally published at TorqueNews.com.
Ford Motor Company rolled out their refreshed 2018 F150 at the 2017 North American International Auto Show in Detroit and while the new look of the half ton F-Series pickup was the main attraction for most attendees, the bigger news with the 2018 F150 is the arrival of the long-awaited diesel engine option. After spending the past few years (if not longer) speculating on the future of a diesel F150, Ford offered only the most basic details on their newest half ton engine, leading to more speculation Ė like the piece that you are reading right now.
What we know is that the 2018 Ford F150 will have an ďall-new 3.0-liter PowerStroke diesel engine, designed, engineered and tested in-house and paired with the 10-speed automatic transmissionĒ. We donít get any further specifications, so we have no idea how much horsepower or torque this engine will offer, but do two things:
1. The 2018 Ford F150 diesel will be marketed to compete with the Ram 1500 EcoDiesel, so the Motor Company will likely work to make their small diesel engine more powerful and more fuel efficient than the Ram diesel.
2. Ford Motor Company designed the 3.0L diesel V6 at use in the current Land Rover portfolio, so while the diesel engine in the 2018 F150 is said to be all-new, we know what Ford has been capable of in the past when designing small diesel engines.
Ford has already proven with its aluminum body that it is willing to take big risks with its best-selling pickup, and for 2017, the brand is introducing new technology that could ruin the way its best-seller drives.<span id="more-473407"></span>
You need only see how Jeepís launch of the jerky, unrefined nine-speed automatic in the Cherokee went over to understand how adding more gears to a transmission can complicate matters while bringing few benefits to the table. Luckily, it looks like Ford was watching its competitors, and the American brand doesnít seem to be repeating othersí mistakes.
