yep,

"A high number of warranty claims (US$50,000,000 in two years) caused Ford to discontinue their contract with Navistar to build a Diesel V6 and paying US$70,000,000 to Navistar as compensation for ending the contract. Ford considered Navistar rival, Cummins, before deciding to design this new Diesel V6, now known as the DT17, in-house."

ford ended the contract for the V-6 psd.

Actually Ford already makes their own diesel engines in Europe - Lion V6 and Lion V8. Ford was actually looking to bring over a variant of their Lion V8 for the F-150 that was a 4.4L V8. Caterpillar won't go anywhere near the "automotive" market (and they are very smart for it).
