[MUSIC PLAYING] JASON KAVANAGH: I just got back
from driving this 2018 Ford F-150 equipped with the new
three-liter Power Stroke turbo-diesel V6 from
Denver to Los Angeles. And now we’re at the test track. And we’re accompanied by our
2018 Ford F-150 2.7 EcoBoost. [MUSIC PLAYING] DAN EDMUNDS: We’ve had this
truck about six months. And it’s got 10,000 miles on it. We’ve been keeping
scrupulous fuel economy data.

It’s rated at 21 miles
per gallon combined and 24 on the highway. Our average is 17
miles per gallon. And our best tank isn’t even
up to the combined number. It’s 20. So we’re really
falling short here. JASON KAVANAGH: Well, the
diesel is slightly better on the window sticker. It’s 22 miles per
gallon combined, 25 miles per gallon
on the highway. On my trip from Denver, I got
22 and 1/2 miles per gallon. So it overachieved relative
to the combined number.

DAN EDMUNDS: That’s good. JASON KAVANAGH: It’s
a pretty good result.

DAN EDMUNDS: But
EcoBoost fuel economy is something we’ve had
trouble with in the past, and so have others. So it’s nice to see
that the diesel may be doing that a little bit better. [MUSIC PLAYING] JASON KAVANAGH:
The only downside is the diesel costs $4,000
more than the 2.7 EcoBoost. And it’s not available in
the low trim levels the way the EcoBoost in. DAN EDMUNDS: I can get the 2.7
liter EcoBoost all the way down to the XL and the very
popular XLT. This Lariat is the lowest level you can
get the Ford Power Stroke diesel in. $52,000, the cheapest crew
cab 4×4 diesel you can get. JASON KAVANAGH: The
EcoBoost has 325 horsepower. And at the track– we
just tested these trucks– the turbo-diesel, with
it’s 250 horsepower, is about two
seconds slower to 60 and almost nine miles per hour
slower in the quarter mile.

And that has a big impact
on towing performance. [MUSIC PLAYING] DAN EDMUNDS: I mean, these
are not drag racing machines. But certainly these numbers
that we’ve generated here do give us a window on what it
might be like climbing a grade. And this truck might
struggle a little bit, even though it’s got
a higher tow rate. JASON KAVANAGH: That’s true. The turbo-diesel is a little
bit more than 10,000 pounds max towing capacity, whereas the 2.7
EcoBoost is about 8,000 pounds. So there’s a big difference
in power and tow rating, but the big unknown
that we haven’t even scratched the surface of
yet is towing fuel economy. That’s going to be where the
turbo-diesel should shine. But we’ll have to test that. So stay tuned. [MUSIC PLAYING] .
