Facts from Ford released yesterday

https://www.ford.com/trucks/f150/?gnav=vhpnav

The New 3.0L Power Stroke® Turbo Diesel V6

As part of its most advanced engine lineup ever, the 2018 Ford F-150 will offer a much-anticipated new alternative. The new 3.0L Power Stroke® Turbo Diesel V6 is built on the legacy of the tried-and-true Super Duty diesel, designed to deliver outstanding power in a hard-working truck.

The new diesel F-150 is ideal for drivers who tow and haul frequently. It’s rated to deliver 11,400 lbs. maximum towing, 250 hp at 3250 RPM, and an impressive 440 lb.-ft. of torque at just 1750 rpm.

Mark your calendar. Availability is scheduled for spring 2018.
----------

But GM may steal the whole show if they are coming with a diesel V8 with 4.5 l in the Silverado 1500 at Saturday at the NAIAS GM-preview:surprise:

If the fact about it getting around 30MPG range and 11,000 LBS towing capacity is true then I might just get it. Planning to start a landscaping company and that would be invaluable to us as we intermittently haul trailers and all other times drive trailerless to the job site. Our old cube van isn't fun to fill up :(

Ford says the estimated fuel economy number for highway is 30 MPG, but AutoWeek thinks it could be more at around 32-33 mpg. Not sure if towing numbers have been understated as well.
