    2018 F-150 3.0L powerstroke Diesel 250hp/440 ft/lb's

    I am very excited to see this finally come to fruition. Ford bringing a 1/2ton diesel to the market to compete with Ram. I am looking forward to the likes of TFL running this up the Ike Gauntlet and comparing it to the Ram. Numbers only tell you so much.

    I'm not so much interested in the 1/2 ton truck itself, although it would work for all my needs, but what I am hoping is that this 3.0l finds it's way into the SUV lineup! We've got years before we are ready to replace our diesel SUV, but it can only be good to have another one on the US market. If only we could simplify the emissions systems on these.

    I saw one this summer. It had a very subtle diesel rattle and even standing beside it, I still had to ask if it was a diesel. I think they also put that in the ZR2 package.

    What else I would like to see is someone fill the diesel void that VW left behind.

    Indeed...well almost. I couldn't go Tesla even tho I do respect them. I really love my cheating JSW and will probably hold onto it a long time. Isn't much else that has the same gitty up while yielding high 30's + MPG's.

    I see currently the 1.4l Eco Tech diesel isn't available for the Cruze yet.

    Cool Option
    What concerns me is "Youíll be able to hitch up to 11,400 pounds of trailer to the diesel F-150 when properly equipped and the payload rating is pegged at 2,020 pounds."

    Holy cow -- Weekend Joe is going to think he owns a big rig and try hauling 11k. scary stuff
    Stopping distance be damned!

    If Ford beefs up the brakes appropriately, I don't see a problem. I'll bet it'll have a factory installed brake controller.
