Maybe they are tryimg to go after the Toyo Tundra buyers.

Seems like they are kinda starting a new "class" with these HD 1/2 ton trucks that say they can tow 10,000#

and what's more HD than a diesel? :cheers:

Does this engine still have the green light? I have been hearing rumors that Ford might put it on the back burner for a while and concentrate more on their ecoboost motors...

As far as I know both the Chevy and the Ford 1/2 ton diesels were shelved. I've heard rumors of the Chevy starting up again, but I wont hold my breath.

We are just FINALLY starting to get some of the cool diesel cars over here... I think the 1/2 tons are going to have to wait. If we ever get them. Who could afford them anyways? Can you imagine how much a diesel 1/2 ton would cost?

Last I heard, the 4.5l LMK Duramax was shelved. The Lion was shelved but Navistar International made a 4.5l PSD for the Ford LCF (Low Cab Forward) fleet trucks. International calls it the VT275 or, when redone to meet the newer emissions standards they changed the name to Maxxforce 5. Just as the 6.0 psd was VT365 and the 6.4 psd was Maxxforce 7.

Find yourself a wrecked lcf and build your own half ton diesel.

I believe Chevy had the first half ton diesel on the early 90s. They put the 6.2/6.5 turbodiesel idi motors in half tons and called them "Heavy Half" or something like that.

EDIT: I forgot the Wikipedia links.

I know three people with the 6.5 chevy... They all wish they had a time machine so they could go back and buy something else. One is a work rig and its down for repairs as much as its running. The other two only drive them when they know they can miss an appointment or meeting.....
