Ford adding diesel engine, other features to F-150
DETROIT - For the first time, Ford is offering a diesel engine with its F-150 pickup.
The change is one of several coming for America's best-selling pickup in the 2018 model year. The revamped truck goes on sale this fall.
The F-150 is just two years into a revolutionary change. In 2015, Ford started making the truck's body out of aluminum to save weight and increase fuel economy.
Ford will now offer a 3.0-liter diesel engine. Other new engine choices include a 3.3-liter V6 and a 2.7-liter EcoBoost V6.
The F-150 gets several optional safety features, including automatic braking and adaptive cruise control that works in stop-and-go traffic.
Ford showed off the truck Monday at the North American International Auto Show.
