F150 Diesel to be king of light-duty diesels?

Ford has often been at the top of the truck game but they allowed RAM to get away at being the first to launch a light-duty diesel, which seems to be selling well enough, but as we get closer to the F150 Diesel launch how do you guys think this diesel will perform in terms of sales and in the hands of consumers... compared to the opposition?

The F-series has dominated sales for so long, I'm pretty sure that when the diesel option comes out, it'll take the crown back no problem.

Figured that much.

It almost seems like everyone is too scared to buy anything from Nissan or RAM, just sitting on the sidelines waiting for Ford to respond and I can't blame them.

If Toyota offered a diesel Tundra, i'd consider it.

I have seen them around and know a few people that own Tundras but I've always been one of those hard-headed die hard "if you buy a pickup, it better be 'Murica" kinda guys.

I used to be like that and dismiss any Jap built pickup trucks, but after having a few buddies that own a couple of them, they aren't that bad. Still want me a F-Series though haha

Most North Americans are like that, but once you look at what brands have trucks in other parts of the world, its a big eye opener. All Mercedes, Toyota, Nissan, etc.

But now Ford and other American car makers are expanding so countries on the other side of the world will get a taste of what we have.

You definitely see that as a common thing. But when Ford and Ram and all of them hit the global market, I think it'll be none the different than it is in NA and they'll take it over.

I am a current Tundra owner and have no regrets of my purchase. It’s a great reliable truck with a lot of size and power. The corporate office my not be located in the states, but when I open the driver side door, the sticker says made in USA.

To each their own I guess but the Tundra is one ugly truck, i am a previous Tacoma owner and the japanese do small mid sized trucks well their full size offerings do not appeal to me at all.

The Tundra is a great truck, its just thirsty and lacks the technology and amenities of the new domestic offerings. They also have rust issues up here in Canada where we salt the roads for 6 months of the year.

if you want a truck that just works.. Toyota is hard to beat.

2018 F150 Lariat Sport - Oxford White, every available option.
