Cummings is currently in the process of designing two new V6 and V8 diesel engines for Dodge trucks. A 4.2l V6 model is claimed to go into the Durango, while the 5.6l V8 engine is going into the ½ ton 1500 pickup trucks. Both engines are capable of achieving 25 mpg highway, based on early test results. This is the dawn of the diesel age and perfect timing to offer a diesel in the F-150 line. Fords 4.4l V8 Powerstroke currently built (in the same plant as the 6.7l) for Land Rover is just the ticket. Not only does it easily beat Cummings out for power and torque, it could easily match their fuel economy numbers. Ford’s Ecoboost was a step in the right direction, but go one-step further and open the door for an F-150 Diesel option. Granted the engine will cost more, but there are a good number of people that would rather opt for a diesel. With winning formulas and game changing innovations, Ford’s F series will forever be the number 1 selling vehicle.
