Ford has confirmed a diesel F150 for 2008/2009, using a modified version of the Land Rover's 267-hp, 472 pounds-feet of torque, 25MPG 3.6L diesel V-8.
472 pounds-feet of torque AND better gas milage! Ah, yes! And there was much rejoicing in Truckville!
I think I'll let them work the new engine bugs out a little before I run out and buy one. By that time, my 2005 will be ready to consider a trade for a 2011 model.
