F-150 vs. F-250 in Ford Power Stroke Battle

By -

Ford trucks race for the in-house title of the quickest diesel.

At long last, the Ford F-150 diesel is here, with a new 3.0-liter Power Stroke diesel providing the torque that half-ton owners have been asking for over the past few decades. Now that this new diesel engine has arrived, people are wondering which diesel-powered pickup is quicker – the F-150 with the 3.0-liter Power Stroke or the F-250 with the 6.7-liter Power Stroke.

To answer that question, the crew from The Fast Lane Truck YouTube channel tested these two trucks head-to-head and the results are somewhat surprising.

The two trucks in action in the video above are a 2018 Ford F-150 and a 2018 Ford F-250 Super Duty. Both trucks have the large cabin configuration, both trucks are four-wheel-drive models with the FX4 package and both trucks have a diesel engine. However, the F-150 has the new 3.0-liter V6 mated to a 10-speed automatic while the F-250 has a 6.7-liter V6 paired with a 6-speed automatic.

The F-250 delivers 450 horsepower and 935 lb-ft of torque to thee F-150’s 250 horsepower and 440 lb-ft of torque, but the Super Duty weighs about 2,300 pounds more. In other words, the V8 truck has far more power, but it also weighs far more, so will that power advantage overcome the weight disadvantage?

Spoiler alert – yes.
