I don't think Ford has released final hp & tq numbers yet and I highly doubt Ford even knows as of now what the final numbers will be. I honestly wouldn't touch one of the 4.4l or 6.7l diesels that are coming out in 2010 at least until 2 years after they are released. Fords building these engines in their new plant and there are new emmision standards for 2010. I'll keep my truck. Those are impressive numbers though from the Chevy 4.5l diesel.
I think a power loaded diesel in a 1/2 ton will be the best thing sinced slice bread. Do guys know how many people had to jump up to a 3/4 ton just to pull their camper safely a couple times a year? And why wouldn't you want 25% better mileage? I wouldn't worry to much about the powertrain - GM has been ahead in the that dept. since the inception of the D/A combo.
