The diesel Ford F-150 has been phased out in favour of the electric push
Ford f150 diesel : Ford confirmed to Fox News Autos that the Power Stroke 3.0-liter turbocharged V6 will be phased out as an option on the full-size truck at the end of the 2021 model year.
Ford introduced its first diesel-powered F-150 in 2018, promising increased fuel economy and tremendous torque, making it an excellent choice for customers who frequently use their trucks for highway towing.
The news of the motor’s demise was initially revealed by Muscle Cars and Trucks.
“Because our customers prefer our EcoBoost V6 gasoline engines, we’re dropping the diesel from our lineup.
We now offer the F-150 PowerBoost as the optimal combination of capacity, power, and fuel efficiency for clients who require maximum towing torque, which was not available when Power Stroke was released “According to Fox News Autos, a Ford spokeswoman.
For the 2021 model year, the PowerBoost hybrid was added to the lineup, and it costs $500 less than the Power Stroke while being both more powerful and efficient, with an EPA combined fuel economy rating of 24 mpg in four-wheel-drive vehicles compared to 23 mpg for the diesel.
In addition to the hybrid, Ford plans to launch the all-electric F-150 Lightning in 2022.
The Diesel Technology Forum estimates that just 6,349 F-150 Power Strokes were sold in the first quarter of 2021, out of a total of 203,797 F-Series sales.
Ford has not revealed official sales numbers for the F-150 Power Stroke.
