Ford has not declared whether a diesel variant of Ford F-150 will be released for next year, but the 2017 Ford F-150 Diesel was caught red-handed while testing a vehicle by the American car manufacturer in Michigan. At the show, the vehicle and its engine were completely camouflaged and it was very difficult to see the developments done in the new vehicle. This point in the trial stage suggests that the new diesel truck will be released for sale probably before the end of 2016. This is for the reason that Ford will have to do something to continue with the diesel rivalry in light-duty pickup automobiles across the industry.
2017 Ford F-150 Diesel Redesign
Although Ford has not yet exposed the complete external look except those few spy shots, the F-150 should be a bit different in terms of design and styling as those of the outgoing model. The truck will also be provided with luxurious and attractive outside elements, such as LED headlights, fog lights and taillights to offer it a more luxurious and gorgeous look than that of its predecessor. The new truck will also be more aggressive and aerodynamic because of the massive front grill and attractively designed front and back bumpers. The body and other elements will be made of frivolous materials, such as aluminum to bring down the overall weight to make the new vehicle offer higher performance and to consume lesser amount of fuel. Except these modifications, the outside look of the new Ford F-150 Diesel 2017 will continue with the same features as those of other models in the F-series of Ford.
Ford is always renowned for offering exceptional and lavish inside styling to all of its vehicles, and the new F-150 truck is no poles apart. Much attention has been paid by Ford to make the interior design more lush and gorgeous than the latest model. Goal is to make it a strong competitor for its rivals of course. Consequently, the cabin is fitted with well-prepared seats made of quality materials, upholstered with first-rate leather to offer a contented ride to its inhabitants.
The engineering section will also be upgraded with most modern appliances to provide an enjoyable ride to its occupants. As a result it comes outfitted with the most recent version of infotainment system with a massive touch screen, automatic climate control system, back view camera. Also there is the most recent acoustic system with speakers, Wi-Fi facility, Bluetooth connectivity, adequate USB ports and so on.
Due importance is also given to protect both occupants and the vehicle to have a safer ride. As a result, the new Ford F-150 Diesel 2017 comes outfitted with some safety features, such as sufficient airbags and the latest version of safety systems.
2017 Ford F-150 Diesel Engine
The new Ford truck will also be a more performance oriented vehicle than its predecessor due to the redesigned engine.
As a result, some sources claim that new F-150 Diesel would come outfitted with a 3.0-liter V6 Turbodiesel engine, also used in new Range rover. It will be fine-tuned to generate 254 horsepower and 443 lb-ft of maximum torque. The new model is estimated to present a standard mileage of 25 mpg by connecting it to a ten-speed mechanical gearbox from raptor.
This mill is anticipated to be extremely accommodating to put the additional money aside since it is so cost-efficient and is measured as a development of sophisticated technology. The weight of the Ford F150 with diesel engine will also be condensed to offer additional comfort to its occupants and to capitalize on the maximum power of the vehicle. The new F-150 will also amaze buyers, as well, because it is the first time Ford considers to become accustomed to a diesel mill.
Date of release and price
The 2017 Ford F-150 Diesel truck is likely to be available for sale during the fourth quarter of 2016. As the base cost of the vehicle is still unknown, it will certainly be more expensive than the current F-150 Diesel, which is estimated to $ 51,000.
