Ford Drops F-150 Diesel Option
Ford Motor Co. is dropping the F-150 pickup’s diesel engine option after just three years because of low demand. Ford will no longer take orders for the 3.0-liter Power Stroke diesel option after July 16th.
“Our customers overwhelmingly order our EcoBoost V-6 gasoline engines, which is why we are removing the diesel from our lineup,” a Ford spokeswoman said. “For customers who need maximum towing torque, we now offer the F-150 PowerBoost [hybrid] as the ideal combination of capability, power and fuel efficiency, which wasn’t available when Power Stroke was introduced.”
