Default New F-150 diesel

Hey Jason are you gonna make a kit for the new F-150 diesel coming out next spring?I believe it isn a "Lion 4.4" built by Ford,not international.I see Ford has commited to producing this truck,and If you are gonna make a kit maybe I can hold my POS audi together til then.Also any interesting comments or research from others greatly appreciated.

This should be very interesting.

I believe Ford will be the first with a 1/2 ton diesel truck. Not the best timing necessarily, but better late than never.

I will own one if it turns out to be a reliable drivetrain... biodiesel if not SVO

I'm with Clay, I think emissions will definitely be a pain in the butt, but hey, at least it's another option for folks that don't want to spend the $$$ on a Super Duty.

I'll be interested to see how the truck does...especially given the market for diesels right now. I don't see any indication on the price of fuel going down, so I'd guess Ford will have to nail the price and the potential market if they plan on it selling successfully.

Sure wish I would have waited a year to buy my truck! I would have saved a ton of money! Haha...

I wouldn't trade my superduty PSD for a 1/2 ton diesel...i would own both though!
Imagine the gas mileage in a little diesel like that. If i an get 20 mpg in my 8k lb dually, i would bet 30 mpg wouldn't be out of the question for a lighter wieght rig with a 4.4 liter.

Sweet!

Yeah, same here...since I've gone Super Duty, I never plan to go back. There is just no comparison between the two.

A F-150 would be nice for the wife...if I could convince her of it!!

Doesn't the 6.4 get poor mileage from the p-filter cleaning mode? I guess as long as it drives and if I could work on the engine without removing the body then I would think about owning it.

2010.5 Ford F-150 Diesel Mule

Remember how we told you about those leaks from the Ford dealer conference earlier this month indicated the 2010 Ford F-150 would get that shiny new 4.4L V8 diesel engine? Well, spy photog to the car and truck stars, Brenda Priddy, claims she's got this photo of a 2010.5 (that half means it's either half the truck Ford thinks it is or it means it'll be a mid-model year refresh) Ford F-150 mule with that big, new diesel under the hood. Why does she think it's the diesel engine mule? Well, it's those tell-tale dual exhausts, that's how. Full report from Priddy after the jump. (UPDATE: Those truck-loving folks at PickupTruck.com have more diesel F-150 pics that include a 2009 F-150 front on a last-gen body and the seven-lug wheels that indicate the Heavy Duty Payload Package may be an optiion in 2010.)

Scoop: Ford's 2010.5 F150 Diesel.... Sources at Ford's recent dealer's meeting recently revealed plans for a 4.4-liter V8 diesel, and we caught the first mules earlier today! The dual exhaust off to the side is the number one give-a-way to the true identity of this test mule. Our spies are telling us to expect about 340-horsepower and (and torque at 430 lb-ft.). After the launch of the 4.4-liter in the F150, the powerplant will appear in the Expedition, Navigator, E-Series Vans and Super Duty trucks. Photo Credit: Brian Williams for Brenda Priddy & Company

340/430 is pretty good numbers out of 4.4L if that's what they end up being. I'm interested to learn more as they get closer to production.
