The Ford F-150 is already a very intimidating competitor but things have gotten serious now as Ford decides to fit it with a diesel engine.

The 2018 Ford F-150 Diesel model will be fitted with a 3.0-liter turbo diesel engine that will be offering about 250hp and 440lb ft of torque. The engine will be mated to a 10-speed automatic transmission.
