Ford F-150 Engines side by side

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

Although gasoline and diesel engines have some things in common, several major differences set them apart when you look at functionality and efficiency. A key difference between them is how they achieve combustion. Gasoline engines depend on fuel and air compression supplemented by spark plugs in order to ignite fuel. Since diesel fuel is much more energy-dense than gasoline, it's able to create more power while using a smaller amount of fuel. The end result is a combination of high-compression and energy-dense fuel, leading to greater efficiency.

EcoBoost® engines offer the best of both worlds through the use of advanced turbocharging technology along with direct fuel injection. Diesel engines are naturally suited toward towing and hauling due to their design.
