Diesel plays a supporting role in America. From January to October 2017, only 682,000 vehicles with self-igniters were sold, of a total of 14,148,300 vehicles. This results in a market share of less than five percent. But sales are rising. And a lot of these engines are in pick-ups.
The competition has long been offering diesel engines. The Dodge Ram has a 6.7-liter series six, a 6.6-liter V8 in the Chevrolet Silverado. Nissan sells the Titan with a 5.0-liter Cummins V8. Only Toyota continues to rely exclusively on gasoline in the tundra.
The advantage of the self-igniters: You better go with high loads. In the F-150 the new engine pulls a towing load of up to 5.1 tonnes. In addition, Ford gives a load of 916 kilograms. The motor is connected as standard to a ten-speed automatic and drives the rear axle or all four wheels.
