No clue.

With all the new emmision control garbage  im not really sure the new diesels are worth the hefty sum they want for them. Even the Cummins that I love.

Had a friends new  Cummins throw a code for the Def Fluid sensor.  Gave them 250 miles or so to take to the dealer before it went into limp mode. Thing was almost new. And they were getting ready to go on a trip.

I'm on my first Ford diesel, 6.4 and couldn't be happier. Went from an '04 Ford F150 to a 2011 Chevy 2500 DuraMax and didn't have the DM for even a year and went to a '09 Ford F350 PS and I don't plan on changing. Too many electrical and DEF problems with the Chevy. To each his own I guess.

They're seeing ~30mpg's on these F150's in the early stages. Our zone rep was here yesterday chattering about them a little.

You guys can talk all you want, but Fords and Dodges all break. They just have different problems. I have made lots and lots of mortgage payments based off of selling repairs and service work on both brands. I deal with lots of construction companies and city municipalities. Several of them are going away from diesels all together due to the fact that the DEF/regen/DPF stuff is not conducive to the work they need the trucks to do. Long idle times and they never get out on the road and get driven don't work well in these environments.

We own a 14 Explorer that my wife drives and I (gulp) traded my 235k miles 2002 Chevy Silverado in that I owned for 11+years to buy the Exploder. I took her 2006 Grand Cherokee which is totally going against the norm at 165k hard, extremely trouble free miles. It's been all over this state and a few others and has seen lots of dirt roads. It's hammered now as I use it for a lot of the stuff I used to use my truck for. Have you ever seen what a bale of hay will do to the inside of an SUV?
I would like to buy another truck soon. Sort of torn as to what I want, but I can say with 100% confidence that the only thing I will worry about when buying it will be comfort. It will either be a Ford, Chevy or Dodge. More than likely won't be a dodge because I don't like the way they look. Leaning hard toward an F-150 with the 5.0 V8 but don't think the ecoboost would be bad either. I've even been looking at some of the 2.7 ecoboosts. I would have no issues owning another Chevy truck. Mine was great.

You stated what I was thinking, but better.
I'm seeing more gas 3/4-1ton purchases in my industry for the same reason. I know of a couple that will go gas in thier F450s when they purchase new ones.

We're getting trucks in here frequently that are de-rating and the guys just don't know that all they need to do is go drive them up the freeway a ways. Once they get themselves through a full regen they're fine. These same guys are idling so long, they're having their crews to do oil changes off their hour meters rather than their odometers.

I have a 2012 Ford ecoboost.  Never had a problem.  Great truck so far as I have 160,000 miles on it.

The 5 liter V8 has been great for me so far but I only have 63k on it. I am curious about the F-150 diesels too though.

Perfect answer to the problem of the 1/2 ton owner who was wondering how he could spend more on maintenance.

Per the Ford wedsite.

The New 3.0L Power Strokeョ Turbo Diesel V6
As part of its most advanced engine lineup ever, the 2018 Ford F-150 will offer a much-anticipated new alternative. The new 3.0L Power Strokeョ Turbo Diesel V6 is built on the legacy of the tried-and-true Super Duty diesel, designed to deliver outstanding power in a hard-working truck.

The new diesel F-150 is ideal for drivers who tow and haul frequently. It痴 rated to deliver 11,400 lbs. maximum towing, 250 hp at 3250 RPM, and an impressive 440 lb.-ft. of torque at just 1750 rpm.

Mark your calendar. Availability is scheduled for spring 2018.
