After browsing this thread, I got curious and searched the Ford site in various cities, including Dallas, Omaha, LA, Seattle, and found only F150's in crew cab short bed with the V6 Diesel. Absolutely none with an 8' bed, which is what I'd be interested in for carrying a slide-in camper. Like was said here, why buy an F150 when you can have a Superduty Diesel for a bit more money? If you can't get a V6 diesel in a variety of configurations, why bother? Not everyone wants a crew cab short bed. :shrug03:
I'm going to guess that engine offering is not going to last long. Just my 2 cents.
Why go for a 150 when for just a few more dollars you can get a 250? For a lot of people the ride quality in the 150 is superior to the Super duty and not everyone wants or needs a Super Duty. If I had to choose one for a daily driver I would go with the 150 without question.
