What Can You Expect From the 2018 Diesel F-150 Truck?

What can you expect to see in the eye-popping new 2018 Ford F-150?

More options. More power. More smarts and tech. More of everything you love in the Ford F-Series. More capability for Attleboro, Somerset, and Westport MA drivers.

Oh yea.... and an all-new, first-ever-seen in the F-150, 3.0L Power Stroke Diesel engine.

F-150 is going diesel.

If you've been considering a light-duty diesel truck in Newport and Tiverton RI--but just haven't been able to find a good fit--the new 2018 Ford F-150 is shaping up to be an ideal match, thanks in no small part to its aluminum-alloy body.

Why Diesel? Why Now?

Due to certain scandals surrounding diesel engines, these high-performance powertrains are even rarer to find in America--even though diesels can be found in all types of vehicles over in the UK.

But with the 3.0-liter EcoDiesel by Ram out on the market, it only makes sense for Ford to present their own competitor. Especially since the F-150's standard gas engines are surprisingly tough rivals against Ram's diesel in terms of performance and fuel economy.

Diesel engines use less fuel, are typically more powerful that similarly-sized gas engines, and boast more torque for their relatively smaller size; that's why we tend to see diesel and turbodiesel engines in heavy-duty trucks. But soon, light-duty truck drivers will be able to enjoy the benefits of diesel power in the 2018 F-150.

Keep an eye on inventory at First Ford to be the first to claim deals on 2018 F-150 diesel trucks. We expect new models to arrive sometime in the fall.
