Ford Diesel F-150 Raptor Is Coming



We were already excitedly waiting for the 2017 Ford F-150 diesel and now we have word from iTechPost about a diesel-powered F-150 Raptor that’s expected to go on sale next year.


For 40 years, the F-150 Raptor has been spearheading the light pickup truck segment and it has been very successful with plenty awards under its belt. So why not make a great pickup even better by giving buyers the option of going diesel? Ford’s rivals in the segment are offering diesel variants including the RAM 1500, Chevrolet Colorado and GMC Canyon, thus it’s no surprise to see Ford going after a piece of that pie.

Exact engine specs have not been released yet, but we can expect to see improved fuel efficiency from the 3.0-liter Power Stroke turbo-diesel V6.

As for the 2018 model’s exterior, it should look more aggressive with a new grille, bumpers, headlamps, tailgate, and a set of alloy wheels. It’ll also be getting a technology upgrade with auto start and stop, a new radar and 360-degree view camera, and a few safety features including pedestrian detection, pre-collision assist, blind-spot information, etc.

Ford should be releasing more information as the 2018 F-150 Raptor’s launch date (next fall) draws closer.

I would assume that the Raptor edition will be around the $50-55k mark seeing as that's how much they're going for now, the diesel may increase the pricing slightly.
