everyone is trying to get those diesels in the smaller trucks! Wonder if dodge will run a 4cyl in the 1/2 tons?

Ah HA! 32V, DOHC, 4.5l V8 pushing "...at least 310hp/520tq..." About dang freakin time!! Pushrods (while I love most engines that use 'em) are going the way of the dinosaur. OHC is sooooo much more simple.

That powerplant in a high gear ratio S10 would be... ...fun and economical! lol

A souped up cummins 4BT would be VERY interesting in a dakota....;

310 horsepower and 520 ft-lbs Would make for one fun reg cab 2x4! Add a good suspension and you'd have a truck to bring to the road coarse.

A friend of mine is a deisel tech over here in the UK, he's built a Cummins QST 4-cylinder and put it in a Mitsubishi L200 pickup, it certainly has some poke, but not as much as his stroked QSB.

I've heard rumors about ford doing the same thing, all I can say is I hope they do real quick! A half ton with a diesel would be a real hot item...

if this is true, Ford/Dodge had better ante up and get their own Diesel for 1/2 ton use.

if you see a light at the end of the tunnel, it's probably just a photon torpedo

i dont know what to think about this..price of diesel might go up.. you know the supply and demand thing..much more demand.. that might suck..
also a diesel ina half ton might give some people the wrong impression about their trucks being heavy duty.. there are enough ignorant jerks pulling too much on these 1/2 tons..they think its only about power..dangerous

the new F-150s are fully-boxed frames, so their load capability is increasing, i'm sure there'll be problems, but i doubt there'll be too many with overloading.

It's no different with the 3/4 & 1 ton trucks either. I here people talking about towing 20-25,000 lbs all the time with their single wheel trucks.
