F-150 Diesel by 2009

Posted Image

Have I posted this before...?

Ford Motor Co. will launch its F-150 pickup with a diesel engine in 2008 or 2009, a former top executive confirmed.

If it arrives on time, the F-150 probably will be the first light-duty pickup with a diesel in North America.

Dave Szczupak, who retired last week as Ford's vice president of manufacturing for the Americas, said the F-150 will get a version of the 3.6-liter V-8 diesel used in the Land Rover Range Rover SUV sold in Europe.

Hmm, that's a smallish V8. But if it's in Land Rovers, I doubt it'll suck.

I just hope GM will end up offering their possible 4.5L in the Avalanche and other trucks.
