Under the hood of the 2018 Ford F-150 Diesel will be 3.0-l V6 unit. Although it wasn’t confirmed yet, we have heard that this engine is seriously considered as only option. There is plenty of time for development, but time will show were we right. Also, we can’t predict how much horses are going to be under the hood. Works on the engine are in progress under the code name ”Lion”.
2018 Ford F-150 Diesel transmission
New 10-speed gearbox is coming for 2018 year models. Nevertheless, engineers are developing it, and it isn’t 100% sure that they will meet the time limits. Since 2018 F-150 Diesel is coming few months after base model, we guess that this transmission could be mated to a 3.0-l V6 engine. On the other side, current 6-speed box is also ready to take place in new truck. That will affect mileage, which should be improved, and also all-wheel drive system performance.
