Hmm.. Diesel ?

Greetings all, I have personally never owned a diesel in my life. But I am looking into getting a truck, and a diesel seems like the right thing to do in terms of range, longevity, etc. Really here to learn a bit and see if I can make a choice somewhere. Thanks !

Welcome to the forum! If you're looking for fuel efficiency and mileage, the diesel f150 may be what you're looking for once it's out. Ford wants to make it the most fuel efficient pickup truck out there and beat the Ram Eco diesel.

That's great to hear. I'm definitely looking for fuel efficiency and mileage as my commute is going to getting much longer. Thankfully I have a vehicle now so I can play the waiting game. Is there an estimated release date ?

Nothing too specific but it should go on sale in the first or second quarter of 2017. Ford should reveal the fully uncovered truck before then, maybe around fall. Still a bit of a wait.

Hmm that is a good bit of time.. But, I'm sure it'll be worth it. Do you plan on waiting for one too ?

Before it launches we should have some luck in seeing spy shots, it's almost tradition of them to do that, seen it happen with the regular versions of the new F-150, then the Hybrid, now the Diesel is what's left.

If we see a spy video, one good indication will be hearing it, aside from that there won't be any visuals.

Most definitely, I'm really interested to hear what it sounds like.. I can start plotting my modifications at that point

Not sure if you can hear the truck but someone Autoguide managed to record the F150 in action.


I'm hoping that more will come soon or maybe even a picture of it without camo.

The point is you can hear it and it's noticeable enough to know its a diesel or at least different enough that someone who knows a thing or two about trucks will know something is different with the powertrain.
