New Ford f-150 diesel?

We'll have to keep track of this one for sure.

Yes, have contemplated a a cummins (fummins) swap when I had my 98 EB Expedition. This is very interesting, wonder where it will sit price point compared to the F250 diesel.

Specs here, not sure of accuracy but if they are right its pretty reasonable:

Personally, I believe it's going to depend on your needs. I bet it will have higher torque, but lower HP than the current 3.5L ecoboost. But now added weight, so payload is going to go down. Now with all the diesel regs there are more parts to go wrong or break. If your towing a trailer daily or several times a week yes I'd go with the diesel, but for most of us, we are weekend warriors in the summer. Personally, unless the numbers are jaw dropping in terms of power, I'll stick with the 3.5L if were talking half-tons.

I keep hearing late October, to even into early next year before we'll see this option in the 2018 model year. IE, they will be churning out 5.0's, 3.5's, 3.3's, and 2.7's before we see the 3.0L diesel available as an option for the truck. I'm excited to see the torque/HP numbers for it, as well as the upgraded 5.0L coyote to see if they up the trailer towing capacity on it.

Towing numbers

I've been watching this close online since the announcement and tease late last year. The closest thing to release date and real numbers is Q3 2017 and talking about 13-14K towing capacities. We'll see.

As an aside, I looked at upgrading my 2011 ecoboost to a 2017 F250 Gasser. I was surprised how close my power numbers (HP/Toque) were on my 150 to the gasser 250.

That would be pretty impressive #s for towing for sure. Can only hope.

I found the same thing when comparing Hp and torgue between those two.

For me, it's a tough sell to move to diesel from the Ecoboost. The additional operational costs and servicing makes the fuel savings a wash if you only tow a few times a year or go on shorter trips.

Also, those higher tow ratings are great, but the hitch weight limit is still going to be problem for travel trailers and bed/rear axle capacity for 5vers plus it is a light truck to begin with. I could be wrong, but I wouldn't think of towing a 13K trailer.

I think that diesel would be for shorter but heavier car/horse/equipment trailers, not RVs.
