Ford F-150 Engines side by side

Ford F-150 Diesel vs. Gas vs. EcoBoost®

Even though gas and diesel engines share some similarities, there are some key differences which set them apart when it comes to efficiency and functionality. One important variation between the two is how they achieve combustion. While gasoline engines depend on fuel and air compression assisted by spark plugs to ignite fuel, a diesel engine relies on air compression alone for ignition. Diesel fuel can also create more power using a smaller amount of fuel since it's significantly more energy-dense than gasoline. The result is a combination of energy-dense fuel and high-compression for increased fuel economy.

EcoBoost® engines help bridge the gap between gas models and diesel engines by using advanced turbocharging technology and direct fuel injection. Diesel engines deliver torque-focused driving characteristics which are ideal for towing and hauling.
