In more moderate conditions, the engine control system uses a viscous coupler to back down the fan's load, and close the two shutters on the radiator for better aerodynamic efficiency, as well as reduced parasitic engine loss.
Despite its impressive capabilities, Ford is bullish with the engine's fuel economy ratings.
Ford says the same development that that churns out its massive 6.7-liter Power Stroke V-8 is behind this new 3.0-liter diesel mill as well.
Ford tested the F-150 Power Stroke at Arizona's Davis Dam, where it maintained consistent power output while climbing 13 miles at a 6% grade in temperatures greater than 100 degrees.
Ford dealers will begin taking orders for F-150s with the 3.0L diesel in about a week, with deliveries slated to begin this spring.
Heavy duty trucks like the F-250 or F-350 have always had diesel engines, but full-size trucks like the F-150 have not.

"We see a lot of opportunities to conquest buyers" from competing truck brands, Todd Eckert, Ford's Truck Group Marketing Manager, said during a background briefing on the 2018 F-150 Power Stroke Diesel, which will make its formal debut at the North American International Auto Show next week. But with the addition of the new Power Stroke diesel, Ford is hoping to deliver the sort of numbers that, not all that, long ago, would have been impressive coming from a compact sedan.
For now Ford has only one competitor when it comes to the half-ton diesel game, and that's the Ram EcoDiesel. That shaved as much as 700 pounds off the weight of prior-generation F-150 models. The transmission can non-sequentially select gear ratio based on need, the company noted, and standard auto start-stop functionality boosts fuel efficiency and reduces emissions. Retail drivers can order the Power Stroke for the Lariat, King Ranch, and Platinum trims in SuperCrew or SuperCab-the former offered with a 5.5-foot or 6.5-foot bed, and the latter with a 6.5-foot bed. The pickup can haul 2,020 pounds of payload and tow up to 11,400 pounds. The turbocharger and fuel injectors were tuned specifically to meet the standards of towing enthusiasts.
"The towing customer wants refinement too, especially in this segment", said David Ives, diesel technical specialist for Ford.
