Ford Announces 2018 F-150 3.0L Power Stroke Turbo Diesel & More

Recommended Posts

The 3.3 na has 80 something more hp than my 1990 sierra w 5.7 had. Theres nothing wrong with a v6 in a truck these days. Most people have trucks that are way overkill.

 

I was tempted by the ecoboost but concerns about long term reliability and looks pushed me towards a 5.3 sierra.

I am not mad at all! More confused really....I have seen one engine come and go over the years at FERD only to see another engine come and go? Really, remember the 3 valve jokes? Innovation at FERD would be.....How about one engine architecture that we could use for durability purposes in TRUCKS and REFINE IT to have better MPG'S more power than say, GM? Nope... just more crap! Go ahead bro! go buy you a 3.3L N/A for your TRUCK!

I do see your point. Ford does appear to change engine designs and architecture like the weather.

 

GM has had maybe 4-6 basic gas engine configurations in their trucks since the 60's; SBC architecture(SBC & LS series) BBC, I6 & Vortec V6 & maybe another one or two I've forgotten.

Ford has had l6, several V6's, numerous v8's of various designs, both OHC and pushrod etc. etc. It seems every 3-5 years there's whole new line of engines.

They'll soon be removing the 5.0 from the F150 line. I believe it's going to be a 4.8L of some sort. All hear say as of now.

Maybe they could try a 4.6 again

Might as well. Ford just loves their smaller DOHC motors that hardly make any more power than GM.

Agreed. I personally like ford. Almost bought one, but the ecoboost engine (they haul ass!!!) Doesn't last as long as our 5.3 and 6.2 engines. Plus an xlt costs as much as my ltz. Now, this new Ford body style for the f150 coming out in 2018 is ugly in my opinion.

 

sure, they haul ass right up to the point when you eat a Turbo at $800 a piece! (that is how much the turbo costs for my sister's 2013 Escape at the Local Ford Dealer!)

 

hell, you can get an LT Z71 for a Grand CHEAPER than the XLT model!

I heard that too about the 4.8. But they have updated the 5.0 for 2018. So guessing it will be several years before they swap it out for something else.

The were even able to update 3.5L Ecoboost to pull more HP & Torque. I still love my 5.0 mustang.

Same reason I bought my truck over the Ford. Those ecoboosts are damn fast though.

The Ego boost doesn't seem all that quick when you drive a 6.2..besides they sound like a Hoover vacuum cleaner from outside. Inside of course you get to hear the illusion you have a V8.

The acceleration times of the 3.5L Ego boost and the 6.2L are pretty much side by side, with only a .2 or .3 second difference.

That's what I have read yet it doesn't feel as quick..my cousin has a new one with the 2.7 that's supposed to be quicker to 60 then the 3.5 and to me it seemed in par with the 5.3's acceleration not the 6.2. My truck even with over a 100,000 miles on it pulled away from his off the line and continued until I let off.

His is full of features, some are worth having like the trans. buttons that change the shifting, etc. Way nicer interior then mine too but I wouldn't trade my old 2011 Chevy for his new Ford for anything. IMO I don't care what they do to a six cylinder...if it's a truck it should have a V8. Unless it's a economy, delivery, old man ride..

40 HP is pretty significant. And I'm pretty sure the 4.8 thing has been disproven.

True. Is that with the 5.0L?

      well, it looks like Ford is putting all of its eggs into one basket; by dropping every passenger car currently in production and going all in on Trucks and SUVs. essentially, the ONLY car they will have left is the Mustang and even then by 2020, the Mustang will be paired with a word that makes the performance community projectile vomit when it is uttered: HYBRID. i for one, feel sorry that Ford is about to essentially ruin the last good nameplate it has.

      A new infographic from Spork Marketing draws an interesting comparison between the 1998 Chevrolet Silverado diesel and the 2018 Chevy Colorado Diesel. The older truck in a larger segment with a large 6.5-liter displacement diesel engine must surely have greater torque and capacities, right? Guess again. The "smaller," modern Chevy actually matches the old 155 Silverado in every category except bed length. The new Colorado is 50% more fuel efficient but has the same power and torque as the older Silverado. The new Colorado can tow more but is down just a smidge on Max rated payload. We found the inflation-adjusted price comparison the most surprising. What spec comparison surprised you?

      General Motors announced today it will build the new 3.0-liter Duramax diesel engine in Flint Michigan. The company will invest $263 million to prepare the line for the new engine build. Flint Engine, as the plant is called, presently builds small four-cylinder gasoline engines for GM vehicles, but has produced Duramax engines in the past.
       
      “The next-generation Silverado builds on the success of our current models, many of which are produced here in Flint. We are proud to expand the industry-leading diesel portfolio here in Vehicle City,” said John Urbanic, Flint Engine Operations plant manager.
       
      The 2.8-liter Duramax engine that GM uses in the Colorado and Canyon are built in Rayong, Thailand. This new move by GM to bring the Durmax production stateside and invest heavily in a plant to build the engine, leads us to speculate that the 3.0-liter engine will likely be used in more vehicles than just the Silverado. The GMC Sierra will get the engine, and possibly GM’s large SUVs. It may even supplant the 2.8-liter engine now used in the Colorado and Canyon at some future point.

      Ford’s new Ranger debuted last night at midnight just after the launch of the new Silverado. The new Ranger arrives with modern driver aids, modern infotainment and will sport a 2.3-liter turbocharged EcoBoost engine mated to a 10-speed automatic transmission.

      “Ranger has always held a special place in the hearts of truck fans,” said Hau Thai-Tang, Ford executive vice president, Product Development and Purchasing. “The all-new Ranger is designed for today’s midsize truck buyer, delivering even more utility, capability and technology for those who blend city living with more off-the-grid adventures on weekends.”

      The new Ranger has a unique engine offering in this segment. The 2.3-liter EcoBoost makes about 310 hp and about 350 lb-ft of torque. This engine (on paper at least) will offer diesel-like torque at low RPMs, but also have the power of the up-powered Toyota Tacoma and Colorado/Canyon.
      Ranger trims will include the entry-level XL, mid-level XLT. The Lariat trim series with be available with Chrome and Sport appearance packages in SuperCab or SuperCrew cab configurations.

      The new Ranger will also launch with an FX4 Off-Road Package that will include protective skid plates, upgraded tires, off-road-tuned shocks and suspension, and Ford’s Terrain Management System and Trail Control which sounds a bit like Toyota’s crawl control system.  

      Power will be distributed through Dana AdvanTEK independent front and solid rear axles on both 2WD and 4WD models with an available electronic-locking rear axle (standard on FX2 and FX4).  Ranger four-wheel-drive versions will feature 2-high, 4-high and 4-low.

      Infotainment will include available Apple Car Play and Android Auto, 4G LTE, and Alexa integration. Driver assist systems will include standard automatic emergency braking, adaptive cruise control, and class-exclusive Blind Spot Information System with trailer coverage.
       
      Production of the all-new Ford Ranger will begin in late 2018 at Ford’s Michigan Assembly Plant.
