Looks more and more like the Ram V6 hybrid will be the cheapest to own and maintain. I had high hopes for the diesel half ton. Maybe GM's version will have better numbers. An inline 6 makes more sense anyway.
Yeah...Nothing says durability like a fabric timing belt! That should be good for 100k at best! How much to replace that belt? How much for that optional motor upfront? Same price for both you say? Sounds about right...
I hate how they keep putting the engine you want with the more expensive trims. Ram at least has the Tradesman where you can get the 5.7 Hemi in a pretty basic truck. If Ford did that with this, it might make it a more attractive package. I'm really not interested in so much of the luxury features. I just want a rough and tumble kind of truck.
Galon of fuel in europe is between 5 and 6 dollars and then you will understand why all commercial vehicles, 95% of SUV and more then half of cars use diesel fuel. So we can see your greatest "national interest" is well kept with all those troops abroad and there is no need to buy this kind of engines yet. Enjoy!
It's not a perquisite, but why is it a bad thing that it does? All a sports car means is better handling, stopping and acceleration, which is what we should all want out of our cars and trucks, right? Also, it is a work tool first and foremost. In fact, better handling, stopping and acceleration make them better tools.
Bummed that Autoguide wasted there one review video a week on a meh diesel engine video. Waste of talent. Also truck videos bring put the lowest IQ commenters. Cant believe any one would say a negative thing about Craig. Literally one of the best reviewers out there
I mean diesels are for fuel savings basically. But with the mark up on these (7k more than 2.7), you need 6/7 yrs of driving to get the fuel cost back and you definitely are getting a slower engine which makes little sense. Idk why did ford charge that much while the mark up on 3.0 diesel over the supercharged v6 is just 2k on range rovers.
jacovand5 You do realize a loaded up F-150 Powerstroke isn't going to be much less than $80,000, right? Nearly the same price as a similarly equipped F-250 Powerstroke diesel. What is the purpose of getting an F-150 diesel, saving money or being economical? Come on now..... When it comes to diesel, people really have lost the ball.
jacovand5 Garbage. Diesels are expensive to warranty and emissions compliance is difficult. That's the only reason manufacturers in the US have avoided making diesel mainstream. Of all the diesels sold in the US, they all have issues, whether it be cheating, reliability, costing a fortune or a mix of all.
Depends on the type of emissions. When it comes to certain pollutants, the standards are the same for light cars and light trucks. When it comes greenhouse emissions, different standards are set based on "Footprint" size. Cars with smaller "Footprints" have higher standards than cars and trucks with larger "Footprints".
TDC you seems to have more knowledge then me . your opinion considered. but when time comes shopping for a Truck i will wait and see how it will stand up for a while . we don't earn money easy to giving to them that easy !! for a product who knows how it will perform !!
East17A You're not getting it. The timing belt is in front of the engine, where it can be accessed. The HPFP is located *BEHIND THE FRIGGIN' ENGINE, WHERE IT CAN'T BE ACCESSED!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!* They both have to be replaced at the same time! It is an *EXTREMELY BONEHEADED DESIGN!!!!* You most likely want to dump this truck long before those belts either fail or need to be changed out.
