Looks Like Ford Just Unveiled Their First Ever F-150 Diesel

If you had a New Year’s resolution to up your truck game it looks like Ford is going to help you with that one! News came out from Ford that they will deliver 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.

“For every truck owner who wants strong fuel economy while they tow and haul, we offer a new 3.0-liter Power Stroke® V6 engine that dreams are made of,” said Dave Filipe, vice president global powertrain engineering. “The more you tow and the longer you haul, the more you’ll appreciate its class-leading towing and payload capacity and how efficient it is at the pump.”

This all-new 3.0-liter Power Stroke diesel now makes for six engine choices for F-150 customers.

The highly anticipated F-150 Power Stroke diesel shares proven commercial-grade technology with F-Series Super Duty’s larger 6.7-liter Power Stroke – America’s most powerful, capable heavy-duty pickup truck ever.

The very same Ford powertrain team behind the 6.7-liter Power Stroke for Super Duty trucks since 2011 designed and engineered this all-new 3.0-liter Power Stroke V6 diesel engine to the specific needs of North American F-150 customers who tow and haul frequently.

Peak torque comes at just 1,750 rpm with strong torque delivery continuing throughout the rpm range, which is ideal for towing or hauling heavy loads over long distances. This new V6 diesel features the same compacted-graphite iron block material construction and forged-steel crank used in the 2.7-liter EcoBoost® engine for added strength and durability along with reduced weight.

For greater responsiveness and reduced turbo lag, the Ford truck team chose a high-efficiency variable-geometry turbocharger. A common-rail fuel injection system precisely optimizes performance and fuel efficiency, while a high-pressure 29,000 pounds per square inch injection calibration enables smoother, quieter operation with reduced emissions.

Dual fuel filters are added for improved break-in, while a cast-aluminum oil pan and two-stage oil pump mean reduced parasitic loss and improved fuel efficiency. Engineering the most efficient F-150 towing machine ever is enabled by F-150’s high-strength, military-grade, aluminum-alloy body, introduced in 2015. This revolutionary construction lightened the load by 700 pounds, allowing engineers to invest in additional technologies to further improve towing and payload capability, as well as greater fuel economy, even when towing. For 2018, stronger axles coupled with the fully boxed, high-strength steel frame add further robustness.

The Ford truck team paid particular attention to extreme driving conditions when engineering the all-new 3.0-liter Power Stroke diesel, which features a premium mechanical engine-driven fan and dual radiator shutters for improved high temperature, high-altitude performance – a key advantage versus the electric cooling fans used by competitors.

In mid-January, Ford dealers begin taking orders for the 2018 F-150 with all-new 3.0-liter Power Stroke diesel engine. Deliveries begin this spring. The all-new 3.0-liter Power Stroke is available for both 4×2 and 4×4 F-150 pickups. Retail customers can choose this engine option for 2018 F-150 Lariat, King Ranch and Platinum edition SuperCrew trucks with either a 5.5-foot or 6.5-foot bed configuration, and SuperCab trucks with a 6.5-foot bed configuration.

Nike Releases The Air Jordan XXXII MVP Edition

In 1988, MJ earned his first league MVP honors. That same year, the Air Jordan III turned in its MVP colorway in the unforgettable combination of Black & Cement Grey. The latest Air Jordan XXXII takes its inspiration from that chart-topping design. It sports black, white and red on the upper and includes the must-have elephant print on the heel piece. An “M.V.P” tag on the inside tongue throws a salute to ‘88 – a glorious year for both the man and the brand.

The show is on sale this Saturday at 10:00 AM EST via the SNKRS app or where Jordan Brand is sold.

Zach Bitter Talks Running, New Years Resolutions & More

I chat with Zach Bitter, who is an ultra-marathoner and holder of the 12-Hour World Record and 100 Mile American Record with a time of 11:40:55 – 7:01 per mile. Zach fuels his body for these 100-mile races in what most would consider an unorthodox manner, as he follows a low carb, high fat diet throughout training and race day – debunking the myth that one needs to carbo-load before race day.

After having health problems that threatened his running career, he began working with leading low carb researcher, Dr. Jeff Volek of The Ohio State University, to develop a nutrition plan which has proven effective over the past 5 years.

Zach chats with me about getting goals set up for the new year, how he got into running, and how he has recently partnered with Atkins to help with his training.
