5 degrees outside, my truck actually sounded like a diesel this evening when I started it. Never heard that before! Usually sits in a heated garage, it was outside today at jobsite.

When we bought our F150 she remarked the same thing, she was expecting the usual clatter bang bang. They do get a little noisier as they age, but apparently cold weather brings out the beast in our engines.

Not really on topic but I’m wondering how are you all finding the heat in these F150 diesels? I currently own a RAM and the heat in the cab on this truck leaves a lot to be desired. I’m 99% sold on the F150 for my next truck, but before I jump I’m doing my homework. Thanks.

Mine heats up just fine. Starts well at 5 F too.

Heat in my diesel is awesome. Cooling is on par as well. I’ve heard from several of our clients that he Ram trucks fall short on both heating and cooling. Thanks for confirming.

Good to know. As I said I’m doing my homework. I don’t need a Super duty any more. I was all for a Ram Ecco diesel until they started falling apart. As you all know a new truck is a large investment. One that I intend to live with for at least 10 years. I want the best. For years that was Dodge Cummins. From what I’ve learned the F150 diesel has surpassed that. Reliability level wise. I think I’ve made my choice . Thanks for all your reply’s.

If you use a "winter front" on your Ram, you will get heat much faster. Next thing, turn both heat zones to max , fan to max, put on the defroster and you have electric heat blowing instantly. I'm in Maine and my Ecodiesel heats up faster than my hemi Ram and my Toyotas did. Don't know if F150 Powerstroke has this feature, but check owner's manual.

Winter cover helps but it still will take 6-8 miles to get heat unless I’m towing. I really like all I’m reading on the Ford

Agree, the F150 diesel does a nice job of providing heat to the cabin. I've been comfortable in temps as low as -17 F - once the vehicle has adequately warmed up.

I'd like to learn more about navyR113's comment: "F150 Powerstroke trucks have a supplemental electric heater for cold starts to warm the cabin up faster."
