Well I think that just about guarantees Ford will have one in the F-150 now.

I think so as well... however we'll wait and see what it does. If its anything other than common rail it'll be worthless!

Btw- Toyota dropped out of the diesel game in 1/2 tons so this may save Ford if they do it right. Really would be nice to have a Cummins killer under the hood of a crew cab F150... BUT! i think f150's are overpriced as they are... i can imagine paying $45,000 for an F150 diesel.

That sounds nice if you plan on driving a grocery getter but it won't cut the mustard if you need a hauler.

Yeah for sure its not in the same class as the superduty's but it gives the F-150 owners the option of the hp tq with the mileage to boot!

Expecially when you can get a good used 7.3L for about $15000!! And we all know that a 7.3L will last forever!!!!
