The technology saves fuel by shutting off the engine when the vehicle is idling and also reduces tailpipe emissions.
The 2016 F-150 features standard auto stop-start when equipped with the 2.7-liter EcoBoost engine. For 2017, Ford is expanding the offering to include trucks with the 3.5-liter EcoBoost engine.
The all-new 2017 Ford F-150 Raptor will be offered with the technology as well.
The technology "is specially tuned for truck customers, shutting off the engine when the vehicle is at a stop, except when towing or in four-wheel-drive mode," Ford said.
The automaker expects more than 60 percent of F-150s will have the feature.
Ford did not offer an estimate on how the technology will affect the truck's EPA fuel economy rating.
Auto stop-start also is being installed with all EcoBoost engines on the 2017 Ford Escape SUV. It is also available on the Ford Fusion with the 1.5-liter EcoBoost engine and the Ford Edge with the 2.0-liter EcoBoost engine.
The expansion of auto stop-start on Ford vehicles coincides with two trends: a drop in gas prices below $2 a gallon and the seemingly never-ending thirst on the part of consumers for trucks and SUVs.
Edmunds says: Truck buyers who are concerned about fuel economy and tailpipe emissions undoubtedly will put these 2017 F-150s high on their shopping lists.
