2018 Ford F-150 Power Stroke Diesel rated at 30 mpg highway, with a big catch

Thu, 19 Apr 2018 00:01:00 -0400

(image) A new turbodiesel V-6 gives the rear-wheel drive 2018 Ford F-150 Power Stroke Diesel fuel economy akin to a mid-size sedan, but the four-wheel drive version is much thirstier. Ford said Thursday that the EPA rates the rear-wheel-drive diesel pickup at: 22 mpg city, 30 highway, 25 combined. The four-wheel drive one comes in at just 20/25/22 mpg, a figure on par with most gas-fueled pickups and not far off of the 18/25/21 mpg rating of the most powerful engine available in the F-150, the 3.5-liter twin-turbo V-6. That 30 mpg figure is enough to make the rear-drive F-150 a teetotaler among half-ton pickups, however. Its next-closest rival is the 2018 Ram 1500 EcoDiesel, which is rated by the EPA at 20/27/23 mpg with rear-wheel drive. The Ram with four-wheel drive and the diesel is rated at 19/27/22 mpg. MORE: Read our 2018 Ford F-150 review It's not clear how long Ford will hold the most fuel-efficient claim, however. The redesigned 2019 Ram 1500 will offer a diesel V-6, though the truckmaker hasn't detailed that engine yet. Additionally, its standard gas V-6 will come with 48-volt mild-hybrid technology designed to reduce fuel consumption, too—but, again, EPA figures haven't been released. The F-150's 3.0-liter turbodiesel V-6 produces 250 horsepower and 440 pound-feet of torque, and Ford says that's good for a tow rating of up to 11,400 pounds when properly equipped. Curiously, that's nearly 2,000 pounds shy of the maximum trailer rating for a properly-equipped gas-engined F-150. Additionally, Ford says that fleet versions of its F-150 Power Stroke Diesel have a 2,020-pound payload capacity, which shrinks to a still decent 1,940 pounds for versions offered to retail customers. DON'T MISS: Ford's 3.0-liter turbodiesel V-6 explained Ford expects just 5 percent of F-150 buyers to opt for the turbodiesel V-6, which joins four gasoline engines ranging from a 3.3-liter V-6 to a twin-turbo 3.5-liter V-6. Fleet buyers will be able to order the F-150 Power Stroke Diesel in XL and XLT trim levels, while retail shoppers will have to stick with Lariat, King Ranch, and Limited trims. It won't come cheaply, either. On the 2018 F-150, the turbodiesel V-6 is being positioned as the range-topping engine, and it is saddled with a premium of as much to $4,000 depending on the trim level.

Judge rejects Missouri governor's bid to dismiss criminal case

Thu, 19 Apr 2018 19:17:22 -0400

(image) A St. Louis judge on Thursday dealt Missouri Governor Eric Greitens another legal setback in the sex scandal embroiling his office, refusing to dismiss a criminal invasion of privacy charge stemming from an admitted extramarital affair. The decision by Judge Rex Burlison paved the way for the single-count felony case against Greitens, a Republican under mounting pressure from both parties to resign, to proceed to trial even as he comes under scrutiny for unrelated accusations of computer tampering. Greitens' lawyers last week sought to throw out the privacy case on grounds of prosecutor misconduct, saying St. Louis Circuit Attorney Kim Gardner, a Democrat, had tried to conceal video evidence supporting the governor and his assertions that the affair was entirely consensual.

Iran's Khamenei quits Telegram

The announcements came as rumours continued that Iran would soon block Telegram, built by Russian tech guru Pavel Durov and the most popular social media service in the country with some 40 million users -- roughly half the population.

FAA orders jet engine inspections after Southwest explosion

Thu, 19 Apr 2018 08:56:20 -0400

(image) U.S. airline regulators have ordered inspections on engine fan blades like the one that snapped off a Southwest Airlines plane, leading to the death of a woman who was partially blown out a window. The Federal Aviation Administration’s announcement late Wednesday comes nearly a year after the engine’s manufacturer recommended the additional inspections, and a month after European regulators ordered their airlines to do the work. Pressure for the FAA to act grew after an engine on a Southwest plane blew apart on Tuesday, showering the aircraft with debris and shattering a window.

(image) More than 16,000 people rallied in Armenia's capital on Wednesday to protest the election of former president Serzh Sarkisian as prime minister, viewed by the opposition as a power grab. Protesters staged a day-long march through central Yerevan, briefly blocking entrances to government buildings, and in the evening gathered in the Republic Square where a 30-metre Armenian national flag was unrolled. Opposition MP Nikol Pashinyan -- the leader of the pro-Western Civil Contract opposition party -- has called for "a peaceful velvet revolution" and urged his supporters to set up "revolutionary committees" across the country.
