Well we know it's a SuperCrew from the spied videos and pictures. Maybe it'll have a
6-1/2' truck bed, so I would guess around $40k? Or is that wishful thinking?

But isn't the Ram Ecoboost its main competitor and their MSRP is $39,295. I would assume Ford will price the f150 close to that to be competitive.

i think that pricing is right around what the RAM 1500 Diesel was going for.

Anyone here open to getting one of those instead or just set on going the Ford route?

I'm definitely open to springing and pulling the trigger on a Ram 1500. I've always had a liking towards they're stylings

The new Nissan Titan seems worthy of getting a look especially with that diesel powerplant, which so far seems to be getting a very positive response. What helps is they went with Cummins, which they're pushing hard, there's even a big cummins badge on the fenders.

I've had a few buddies that had the Titan, albeit not in Diesel, but with the amount of bad experiences they've had suspension, axles, and steering wise, I'm planning on steering clear of them

It actually starts from $37k. That's for the EcoDiesel 1500.

Still not bad in price, then you have to factor in how much can be chopped off the MSRP with negotiation.

Oh okay my apologies. But even at that, you're right, it's definitely not a bad price. Negotiation is possible along with throwing features/add-ons. Just have to stand your ground and push for the best

I would say $40ish ? $40k post negotiation would be pretty good. Anything more and I mean, ecodiesel 1500 here I come

The Ram 1500 HFE starts at $ 37,405 so around $40k is a good price but this is dependent on the standard features and final fuel economy ratings. If all it has is better fuel economy and it costs more, may as well go with the eco diesel.

Definitely, We just need some more solid specifications. Well, that and some real world testing as it seems majority of these manufacturers specs are pretty off when it comes to real world usage. Given I guess.

One thing to be on the look out for are reviews from publications since its been said car makers tend to send those guys cars that have been tweaked a bit in performance and just about where ever else possible to put a review in their favor. Reason why I wait for owners and those getting vehicles from a batch that owners would.

That's pretty messed up. Is it only performance tweaks that they make ? Like a better tune or something or is it parts wise too ?

Where ever the vehicle is supposed to shine in, which overall is performance. And as you can imagine just about anywhere else some downside can be found they'll try to make changes that can go undetected. It happens.

Lots of reports out there pointing out press cars did better than large sample sizes of production versions.
