Your european 3.2 Diesel TCDi L5 makes 200hp and 350 lb-ft of Torque. It's only 48hp less than the base V8 in the current truck, and compensates for this loss a bit with 56 lb-ft of torque more. Not just that, but this tiny engine is almost as powerful as the old 7.5 liter gasoline V8 from the 80's era F-series.
You'd have to test it out to get real world numbers, but I'd be willing to bet that you could get some very good fuel economy numbers out of this with only a slight drop in power.
