    Ford 3.0 V6 Powerstroke

    So just brought home my new F150 this past weekend. It has the baby diesel 3.0 V6 in it. Anyone here have any experience with these baby diesels?

    I didn't know Ford made little diesel engine's like that, I'll have to do some research on them.

    Been saying for years that if Ford put a small diesel into the F150, it would double the sales.

    The engine might be an international, since the 6.0 PowerStroke Diesels was from International, but Ford since parted ways with them. So it could be a internally developed diesel, or even from Ford Europe or their trucking lines, but changed to meet emissions for a passenger vehicle.

    Had the 5.0 in my 14, solid motor. looked at truck almost identical to the one I got but with a 5.0. The diesel just felt better when I test drove both. Iím guessing because it makes its peak torque of 440 ft/lbs at 1700 rpm. So you have that solid off the line feel.

    dstud2000, sounds like you weren't to impressed with the Coyote 5.0? I've never driven anything with one, but I've been running 289,302&351's for almost 40 years, the new 5.0 always seemed like the Holy Grail for 302's(?) That said my OLD worn out 390fe was ridiculously fun to drive, makes the 302 feel silly. lol

    "5.0 Coyote
    360-460 HP
    380-420 ft-lb torque

    In 2018, ford switched from the more traditional cast iron sleeves in the block to the Plasma Wire Arc Transfer cylinder liner technology. This increased the bore diameter from 92.2 to 93.0 mm (3.63 to 3.66 in) and brought total displacement up from 4,951 to 5,035 cc (302 to 307 cu in). The Gen 3 Coyote engine features dual-fuel, high-pressure direct injection with low-pressure port fuel injection and an increased compression ratio of 12.0:1. These changes are relevant to both the Mustang GT and F150 with 5.0 V8s.

    For the 2018 Mustang GT, the Gen3 5.0 engine also was equipped with new camshafts, enlarged intake and exhaust valves, and revised intake manifold, that moved redline to 7,500 rpm."

    Itís not that I wasnít impressed with it, the 5.0 in my 14 was solid, towed my boat without a care through all seasons even the winter when I would tow through snow and ice to go steelhead fishing in the rivers in the middle of January. Not one complaint. Iím just saying that from a daily driver perspective the 3.0 making its torque so quickly gives you a different feel. My 18 with the 3.5 eco was a beast, slightly better gas mileage than the 5.0 and the grunt of its higher torque made pulling trailers easy. Even pulled out the family tractor that buried all the way to the bottom of the frame with it. The difference Iíve noticed with the 3.0 and I am assuming a lot of diesels are like is just how soon you make that peak torque and secondly the fuel cost savings once you are at speed. So far my 3.0 is avg about 24 mpg combined driving but I only have about 400+ miles on it my 3.5 was avg 18.8 mpg combined and my 5.0. avg was about 16.9 mpg combined. A lot of that I believe is due to where the engines power bands, hence the peak torque of the 3.0 being so early in the rev range, and also the rpms at speed.

    My dad has the 2.7 eco and it is an impressive little gasser too 325 hp with 400ftlb, it is actually quite quick with good throttle response and he gets an avg 21 mpg combined driving.

    As far as the f150 goes, any of the EcoBoost motors, the 5.0, or the 3.0 would be welcome under the hood of my truck. but since I am buying this time instead of leasing I went for the truck that was basically everything I wanted and like I said earlier I have been wanting a diesel option but just could never justify the superduty with a diesel for what I use my truck for.

    The answer is right there. You wanted a truck, with a diesel but didn't want/couldn't afford a Superduty.

    I am sure the economy of the diesel when under a load should put a gas motor to shame.

    Itís looking like it should, the motors not even close to broke in and Iím already almost at. 6 mpg increase over my previous truck with the 3.5 EcoBoost, and it should keep climbing as the motor breaks in:

    Forgot to mention. I have it on good authority that Ford will be releasing a cam in block pushrod motor for the f150 in 22, it will be in the 6 liter range, built in Windsor and based off the current 7.4 Godzilla motor you can get in the superduty trucks, and it will fit in a mustang.
