The 4.5 is suppose to go into the F150. Ford is working on producing the 4.5 on there own from across the pond. Same plant the Landrover diesel engines are manufactured. (the name escapes me at the moument)
My understanding is that it will be based off the 2.7l V6....

Probably has to do with opinion of a good deal of the population hear in the states. Most people here believe diesels are noisy,smelly, and dirty (we know better). This attitude has to change before a diesel in anything but a truck will be accepted here.
