no more 3.0 in 2020?

Has anyone tried the 2020 "Build and Price" a new F150 on Ford website? I am not finding 3.0 diesel option. I do find it in "Fleet/commercial", but yet to find on regular site.

It's available on everything up here in Canada. This has been discussed a lot online however, try changing your zip code, it seems that for certain zip codes it's removed, likely a glitch on their website or something.

I will try that, crazy to think Ford would pull it as GM and Dodge are back in baby diesel market.

It would be nice if they could crank out a little more power out of them, especially torque.

I'd just like to see maybe a little more displacement (say 3.2L or 3.3L) which would bring more torque and horsepower naturally at the expense of fuel economy => I think all three US automakers are chasing that elusive fairy-tale 30 MPG highway rating; hence all three going with a 3.0L 6-cyl (and in the case of Ford & GM) coupled to a 10-speed transmission for maximum fuel economy...

The 3.0L is on hold for 2020, with late availability. This has been beat on other truck sites. It’ll be back better than before. I just hope they don't build in design flaws we don’t need. It’s really been a trouble-free mill since it came out in the US. The EGR issue was isolated and minimal.

I work at kcap and was doing the build and price thing and wondered what was going on
I haven't heard of any changes that would require a build delay
I don't see very many
I don't think it's going over very well
But I love my 19

If any Ford Diesel Powertrain Engineers are listening, it would be great if the 'next generation' F150 PS was based on a smaller displacement scorpion architecture. Imagine a 6.7 with a smaller bore and a shorter stroke in the F150. 400hp/600ftlb out of a small displacement say 4.0L V8 turbo diesel is exactly what this Ford Owner is looking for to claim first-in-class status!!

I feel like Ford was testing the waters with the 3.0L PS Lion platform updated from it's inception in the early 2000's. The 6.7L PS scorpion architecture is so far ahead of the Cummings & Duramax designs. My money says Ford Engineers are already working on a 'next-gen' F150 diesel. They just needed some baseline 1/2 ton diesel EPA data to build confidence.
