The 2018 F-150 Diesel is causing quite a stir in the auto industry, offering a Power Stroke V6 Diesel engine that works to optimize power while using less gas. Although the 2018 F-150 has several updates, this new diesel engine option is perhaps the most significant.
According to Car and Driver, the diesel engine is turbocharged and mated to a 10-speed automatic transmission, to yield optimum performance. You may be wondering, “Why should I buy a diesel engine?” While old diesel engines produced dark black smoke and guzzled fuel, modern engines are quieter and typically require less maintenance and fuel.
Previously, diesel engines were only offered in Europe, but we’re seeing some changes in the industry. Diesel engines have low-end power because they don’t need to be revved for better acceleration. They also have better towing due to increased torque. Because they don’t need spark plugs or other components, many people see them as more reliable than traditional gasoline engines.
