Re: Ford Releases 3.0L PowerStroke Diesel Specs

^

A lot less weight, like 700lbs I believe, combined with a more modern 10 speed and even stop-start for better city FE.

I will take a stab here and predict 22mpg city, 30mpg hwy and 26mpg avg. That of course would be class leading.

Re: Ford Releases 3.0L PowerStroke Diesel Specs

Amazing just how many people aren't aware that Ford owns the IP on the Lion V6 and 4.4 V8
and that they supplied those engines to Jaguar/Land Rover and PSA and the 2.7 to FOA.

I hope Ford finds a place for it in Expedition / Navigator.

Looks like 30mpg was the target.

Re: Ford Releases 3.0L PowerStroke Diesel Specs

I wonder what a Diesel hybrid FE number and range would look like.
40mpg and over 1000 miles perhaps.

Re: Ford Releases 3.0L PowerStroke Diesel Specs

Wow, there is a $18,000 price gap between the Dodge and Ford diesel. I wonder why Ford put the Diesel so far out of reach.

Re: Ford Releases 3.0L PowerStroke Diesel Specs

Obviously trim levels vary, with Ford offering it in higher configs.

This is the trim level that Ram allows you to put their $29K EcoDiesel in, complete with cab configuration, wheels, etc.
So then one must wonder how many Ram sells in this config.

Re: Ford Releases 3.0L PowerStroke Diesel Specs

Of course, but there is a tremendous amount of variation and choices between base and $47,000 for both trucks. And more importantly, this means the Diesel is not available in their typical commercial configurations which seems counter-intuitive.

In any case, we're getting a new RAM which might change things up again.
