eco truck

By Alex M.

I know ford and gm are working on their nine and ten speed transmission, so i was thinking what if they put that transmission into the f-150 with a small diesel engine (like 3.6 L or so) so they would have a adequetly powered fuel efficent truck option to best the 8-speed transmission on the ram 1500's. On top of that with this idea i have is that you have the tourque and horsepower ( you dont need 400+ hp the old mac trucks had 75 hp motors and ran fine) kick in at a lower rpm so that the engine wont blow itself out at 7500 rpm trying to get that extra tourque
