Lets talk F150 powerstroke (deserve a section here?)

Anyone get to drive one yet? None on a lot near me. But I love this idea, not necessarily for the diesel in an F-150, but that it just might trickle into the SUV's. I'm a huge diesel proponent, where 75% of my rigs now are diesel. I'd love the option to replace my wife's X5d someday with another diesel SUV. Not sure she'd like the size of the expedition, but that would likely be where the diesel could find its way into?? Explorer would fit our needs a little better, especially if they still offer 3rd row seating.

I'd also like to suggest the Diesel F-150 get a section here.

From what I know they have only just begun arriving at dealers. I have yet to see one myself though I have completed training. The HP and torque numbers are decent for a V6 and the fuel economy rating shows 30 MPG highway which as I understand is top in it's class as of it's introduction. The 3.0L PSD is a variant of the 3rd generation global Lion V-6. For those interested the digital version of the Coffee Table Book is available at the DTS website.

I also think this engine deserves it's own section!

The one thing I have seen thus far for the MPG rating is, you have to get the 2WD version to get the 30 MPG. And the article states that a 4WD version sacrifices 5MPG. But we all know how EPA estimates can be.

Hey there,

If I get a positive feedback from the community on this, I can ask the mods for approval.

Cheers,

Ed

I dunno Ed, On my website I am the Administrator... the Moderators report to me. Just sayin.

The Transit/3.2L PSD got it's own section. This V-6 engine is a totally different animal and it is being shoved into the most popular pick-up truck in the country. I see it as an opportunity to grow your membership which can affect your advertising revenue. Why would this be a difficult decision?

Lol I get it seems silly but we like to get their insight when adding features or sections to the site. They know the community well and will have insight into if something is needed.

I'm with Keith. We work for you. But we do appreciate being asked for input.

Anyway, my vote is to add the section for the F150 Diesel V6.

I created the section under "Ford Diesels"
If there's another place where you want that section in, let me know and I'll move it there

Has no one bought one yet? Its been at the dealers since the first week of July, I expected some kind of review by now.
Almost 3 months on the road and not a single complaint, Ford must have finally built the perfect machine!

Can you change the belt using the Braille method, or do you have to pull the motor?

I think the issue is that our half-ton brothers aren't usually hanging out here. I haven't heard anything either and been too busy to stop at a dealer. Although I do need some more fuel treatment,so I may try to carve out enough time to check one out.
