2017 Ford F-150 Is Packing A Diesel Engine



Ford has put the 2017 F-150 on display at the North American International Auto Show in Detroit and their best-selling pickup is finally getting a diesel engine.

For the first time, the F-150 powertrain choices will include a new turbocharged 3.0-litre V6 diesel and it’s expected to the most fuel efficient F-150 in the automaker’s lineup. Specifications have not been released yet, but the engine can be found in Land Rover Td6s and it’s cranking out 440 lb-ft of torque in the Rovers.

Joining the diesel is a 5.0-litre V8 engine powerhouse that was in an older F-150. The unit produced 380bhp and 387lb ft of torque and publications like Autocar were told that it’ll have more power and increased efficiency.

Replacing the old entry level 3.5-liter six is a 3.3-liter normally aspirated V6 with 282bhp and 253lb ft of torque. Sitting above it is a 2.7-litre V6 and though Ford has not released the specs for this unit either, we do know that it’ll be paired with a 10-speed automatic transmission and feature dual port and direct injection technology

Not only has the engine lineup been updated, so has the exterior design. Customers will be able to choose from six new wheel options, all 16 trim levels gets one of seven new grille designs, they all come with new LED headlamps, and new bumpers.

The new Ford F-150 is set to go on sale this fall and we can expect to see a starting price of around $26,540.

It would be very interesting to have a professional estimate of the coming dieselsales in F-150. 20 %?

Some are predicting 50.000 and others the double.

It´s very difficult to read Fords sales figures as long as they take all F-series in the same lot. For now the combined V6-sales are 70 % in the F-150.

I have no idea about the breakdown of sales with the F-150s but I do know that it was the best selling vehicle in America last year with a total of 820,799 units sold. 5.2% increase in sales. So this is the 40th straight year that is has been the best selling vehicle in America apparently!

The numbers are out there if you look but for a quick example, back in June 2016, F-Series sales topped out at 395, 244. Runner up was the Silverado at 273, 652. Now some of you might say that's F-series as in all the F-series trucks, not just the F150, but how many of the other F-series trucks do you see driving around you?

That's precisely it. Doesn't matter where your located, but you'll always see substantially more F150s than any F series truck. Raptors included. I'm sure that number is going to increase as well. Especially with the diesel coming out and the facelift because it looks darn gorgeous.

Yup.

I remember RAM 1500 Diesels had good road presence in the city and RAM 1500's overall sell well enough for you to spot them.

But unlike the 1500 Diesel, since Ford has plans to bring back the Ranger, we might see those scoop up more city buyers than the F-150 Diesel does. If people are chasing MPG numbers then the Ranger will help and for a cheaper price

That is true, and we can all see the chase for MPG is real at this point in time and probably for a long while to come. The only thing that I think will skew things is that the F-150 comes with a presence opposed to the Ranger which is smaller and less appealing (IMO). One of those my truck is bigger than yours kinda thing if you catch my drift.

Not at all.

The Ranger will do some slight damage, the sort of damage that happens any time a car maker release products that come close enough to each other, but still there's a great divide. Just breaking down the capability of both, features, and the image it creates for a buyer (among many other things), you'll see the bigger picture.

For example, something similar to what will happen to the FR-S when Toyota releases the Supra and potentially upcoming MR2 ?

I don't know about those, but if you know anything about trucks or care to research then you'll see how that picture comes together. Do some research on the Ranger and F150, and the segments they sit in, then you'll understand.
