This Cute Little East German Truck Has A Higher Payload Rating Than A Ford F-250

  This Cute Little East German Truck Has A Higher Payload Rating Than A Ford F-250 Ever since spotting a strange, single-passenger pickup with the engine on right side of its cab in Prague, I have been having dreams. Weird ones involving an America filled with the cute trucks it deserves, like the Multicar M22, which amazingly has a payload rating higher than that of a Ford F-250. “The 2020 Chevrolet Silverado HD Wants To Kill,” I wrote a few weeks back about the upcoming heavy duty offering from The General. Like most pickups for sale in the U.S. these days, the new Chevy is going to look angry. Which is a shame, because some of the best work trucks are the cute ones.© Provided by Univision Interactive Media, Inc.

EPA testing has resulted in estimated efficiency ratings of 10.8 litres/100 km in city driving, 8.0 L/100 km on the highway and 9.5 L/100 km combined – the highest ratings in the full-size (under-8,500 pounds) pickup category.

“Even a few years ago, customers wouldn’t have imagined an EPA-estimated rating of 30 mpg (8.0 L/100 km) highway would be possible in a full-size pickup but our team of crazy-smart engineers rose to the challenge,” said Hau Thai-Tang, Ford executive vice president of product development and purchasing.

2019 Ford F-150 Limited gets revised styling similar to Chevy and Ram

  2019 Ford F-150 Limited gets revised styling similar to Chevy and Ram It seems there's always room at the top. Each year, automakers add more and more luxurious trims for their trucks. That's how we get near-luxury vehicles like the 2019 Ram 1500 Limited and 2019 Chevy Silverado High Country. In order to separate higher trims from lower brethren, most get a few unique styling touches and a whole sea of chrome. Just look at these photos of the slightly updated 2019 Ford F-150 Limited.Research the Ford F-150 on MSN AutosThe only real change here is a revised rear bumper.

The Ford also boasts a tow rating of 11,400 pounds and 2,000 pounds of payload capability. However best-in-class these numbers may be, they represent a comparison of mostly non- diesel 2018 models. The 2018 Ford F - 150 Power Stroke will arrive in dealers in May.

This spring Ford will introduce a new flagship engine to its perennial best-selling and recent Motor Trend Truck-of-the-Year-winning F - 150 pickup line—a 3.0-liter 250-hp, 440-lb-ft Power Stroke turbodiesel V-6 capable of hauling 2,020 pounds or towing 11,400.

The 2018 Ford F-150 equipped with the diesel engine can also lay claim to best-in-class horsepower with 250 ponies under its hood, as well as greater torque – 440 lb.-ft. – than the 2019 Ram 1500 Hemi V-8. That peak torque comes in at just 1,750 revs and continues through the engine’s rpm range, making it ideal for towing or hauling heavy payloads. The new engine, which is coupled to an electronically-controlled 10-speed automatic transmission, is capable of towing up to 5,171 kg (tops in its class) and has a category-leading payload capacity of up to 916 kg.

The F-150 Power Stroke diesel shares the same robust engine construction of aluminum and compacted graphite iron as its bigger sibling, the 6.7-litre Power Stroke V-8 in the F-Series Super Duty, and its forged-steel crankshaft (borrowed from Ford’s 2.7-litre EcoBoost V-6), ensures added strength and durability with reduced weight.
