Jason I agree. I would much rather see the 4.9 inline 6 than the 5.0 v8 as an option in the new f-150. the 4.9 has fewer moving parts and is generally more reliable. I wonder if they don't bring it back because Ford wants to make more $$$ servicing junked out 5.0 v8s down the line. Doesn't sit well with me. Also, what's the deal with ford not making an inline 6 diesel like the 5.9 cummins. Surely if Dodge can make that kind of truck profitable, then ford should be smart enough to turn a profit on a straight six diesel also. I'm a ford guy, but I'm a dollars and cents guy first.
