Ford has upped the ante in a big way with the 2018 F-150. Not only does the 2018 Ford F-150 offer the choice between six powerful and efficient engines, but, for the first time ever, one of those engines is a diesel engine. That’s right, you can now have your new Ford F-150 powered by a diesel engine. What a time to be alive.
But, in all this excitement, you can’t forget that you still need to decide which of these six amazingly impressive and capable engines you want under the hood of your new F-150. In all honesty, there isn’t a wrong choice, but a certain engine might still be better suited to your needs than the others. To help you out, we decided to put together this 2018 Ford F-150 engine comparison, so you’ll know exactly which engine you want by the time you get to our Brandon Ford lot in Tampa, FL. Unfortunately, the power and fuel economy ratings aren’t out yet for the all-new 3.0-liter Power Stroke turbo diesel engine, so this comparison will focus on the other five available engines.
