2018 Ford Super Duty Lineup Engine Comparison
Unlike the 2018 Ford F-150 lineup, which just got its first-ever diesel engine option this year, the Ford Super Duty lineup has long offered the choice between a regular gas engine and a diesel engine. For some, it’s an easy decision to make, as they have a personal preference they stick to no matter what. For others, it’s a harder choice to make, as they have no prior allegiance to regular gas or diesel engines. If you happen to be in that group, then you’re going to want to pay close attention to the rest of this 2018 Ford Super Duty lineup head-to-head engine comparison.
