I think that is great but am thinking they will charge too much for it...

I hear about the f150 having possibly a ford 5 cyl in line diesel in 2015. i think it will be a substantial upgrade for the line, and goes for all of the major brands really.

Why ? It probable going to cost almost or not more then a 250/2500 series truck. With less weight capacity. The front ends would be heavy. I will stick to the 3/4 ton or better truck.

Its probably more targeted to people who want to own a diesel than those who need one for work.
