With the pickup segment getting more and more competitive, it is almost a necessity at this point for Ford to include a diesel option for the uber-popular Ford F-150 pickup truck. At Reynolds Ford of OKC Inc., we want you to be able to see how the diesel F-150 will compare to other popular diesel options, including the Ram 1500 EcoDiesel. While details are still limited on the diesel Ford F-150, there are only a handful of concrete comparisons to make.
One of the main topics of conversation when it comes to diesel trucks, really when it comes to any pickup trucks, is the tow rating. The diesel Ford F-150 seems like it will be capable of towing up to 12,000 pounds, much higher than that of the Ram 1500 EcoDiesel that can tow up to 9,290 pounds. Pickups are all about their capabilities, and a roughly 3,000-pound higher towing capacity is a lot.
The Ford F-150 diesel won’t be available until later in the model year, but it is shaping up to be one of the most impressive pickups that you will be able to find. If you have any other questions regarding Ford models, or if you want to talk about what to expect from the Ford F-150, our team will gladly take the time to tell you everything that we know.
