Diesel on deck for the 2018 F-150.
DEARBORN, Mich., Jan. 8, 2018 – Full-size diesel truck fans have reason to celebrate this year as Ford – America’s truck sales leader – delivers the first-ever F-150 Power Stroke diesel with a targeted EPA-estimated 30 mpg highway rating, a best-in-class 11,400 pounds of towing capacity and 2,020 pounds of payload capacity, plus best-in-class diesel 250 horsepower and 440 lb.-ft. of torque.
2018 F-150 update more than skin deep.
The fact that the 2018 F-150 was getting a 3.0 Powerstroke Diesel engine was the worst kept secret in the auto industry since the S550 Mustangs IRS. Still, the updated F-150 has a lot of changes the Ford faithful should be very excited about. Beyond the obvious new styling (which I think looks great), there are a host of powertrain updates.

It’s a never ending debate; who makes the best sounding V8 engine. Could it be the new Shelby GT350 Mustang, or perhaps a 40 year old Detroit Diesel 8V92? Perhaps you have an affinity for small-displacement European V8s or an oddball 2-stroke Johnson Outboard boat engine? It’s a topic that once broached can lead to hours clicking the next recommended video on YouTube.

Who doesn’t love working the system? A few days ago I was doing a little grocery shopping and noticed that the local Kroger was running a particularly interesting special, 4X Fuel Points on Gift Card Purchases.

Those that are familiar with this author’s predilections know that when I am not obsessing about cars, I am most likely obsessing about music. So, when the opportunity to see a handful of European bands that I love at one small festival in Northern Wales presented itself, I decided to make my first trip to the UK.
