Worldwide a Ford F-150 is sold every thirty seconds! Now for the 2018 model year Ford gives us another treat: this is the first time that Ford has fitted a turbo-diesel engine into a half-ton pickup. Is it worth its weight in towing gold? Now to get the diesel engine option (which costs $4000) you have to opt for a minimum Lariat level trim which starts at $41,515.

Under the hood is a 3.0 liter turbo-diesel that makes 250 horsepower and 440 lb-ft. of torque. Fuel economy is rated for 30 MPG on the highway. The transmission is a 10-speed automatic. The real magic of the truck unfolds when you are on the road. Ford did a tremendous job of making the F-150 a great driving vehicle.

      What a disappointment in performance for the half ton diesel truck. The less expensive 3.5 EcoBoost kicks it's ass in power on less expensive fuel with a lower engine cost at purchase. I have been waiting for it to finally hit the market so I could buy one but, I think I have to keep my EcoBoost.

      Yet another 'review' if a diesel vehicle where the 'reviewer' doesn't know jack squat about diesels.
      This guy went on and on about how great it is that you can use the trans manual function to keep the speed in check while going down hill, but didn't mention the fact that this thing DOESN'T come with an exhaust brake(like its competition does), which by design is there to keep the vehicle's speed in check going down hill without taxing the trans or brakes.

      Just an FYI. Lariat does not mean the bumper is painted the same color as the truck. The sports package is what makes the truck all in one color, in this case the grill.

      I'm a Chevy guy but this is a very nice truck. Love the color. Are the smaller Powerstrokes made in Chihuahua Mexico like the 6.7? Could be a deal breaker.

      How does a lariat not have navigation? That to me is crazy my 2017 f150 xlt with the 302a package has navigation and everything this truck has and more.....Except leather.

      I feel like this guy is wrong in so many ways . The cost outweighs so much benefit ... The eco boost will do better in most ways

      $54K for a 2 wheel drive? This is the engine that Ford developed in 2003 that they told us would be in 2004 F150's but they pushed it off to Europe. Nothing like being a mere 13-14 late. Ram has had this type of diesel since 2104 240HP 440 pound foot torque but also is expensive. Is the diesel worth 4500 bucks more? I had a Super Duty ran until I sold it flawlessly 189K miles. My current diesel is the Jeep Grand Cherokee with the same 3.0L that is in the Ram. I am on a trip right now and my first fill up was 29 mpg and this tank 33.3 mpg and it is 4 wheel drive.
      I think I will be going to a Ridgeline Honda. The 17 model I had is in the hands of my former fiancee' and we both loved it. Fuel mileage finally jumped to 28 mpg. However it is between a Ranger and F150 which is the size I prefer. It is so quiet and rides so well that it seems more car than truck. The Ram by the way drove like a ponderous pig and I will never buy the 1500 RAM. If the F150 is a cumbersome as the Ram I will never buy one. I am betting the F150 is a lot more nimble and more car like ride than the Ram. It was worse than my Super Duty which to me was an amazing ride with tons of space in crew cab. True seating for 6 in comfort...

      I would buy one of these if they made them like 3.5-4.5L and 320 hp and 450 Tq. These boring ass 240-260hp diesels are for economy and light workloads. I need a little more acceleration in my daily drive.

      Dude I really like your reviews but what’s the deal with these manufactures? They are making economical motors but only allow you to have them in very uneconomical packages? Seems backwards to me. Keep up the content man.
