3.0-Liter Power Stroke Turbo Diesel

True to tradition, the Ford F-150 offers the legendary Power Stroke diesel engine to help you get the job done right and on time. The engine generates 250 horsepower, but it's the 440 pound-feet of torque you're really here for. You won't have to put your foot on the floor to achieve this rating either, it's generated at only 1,750 rpm. Plus, you'll be amended a surprising 30 mpg on the highway. This powertrain is the full package.

Two Transmissions

So, we hit on the available engines, let's briefly look at the transmissions that are offered on the Ford F-150.

The classic six-speed transmission is standard only on the 3.3-liter V6 powertrain. It's agile and provides a pretty smooth ride. If you're really looking for optimized performance across all grades and terrain types, the ten-speed transmission is the right move. It comes standard with all powertrains except the aforementioned 3.3-liter V6 engine.
