QUESTION OF THE WEEK Hybrid or Diesel F-150?

Big F-150 Venturi Spy

Spy shots have surfaced showing what many believe to be a Ford F-150 test truck packing a diesel engine. Since nothing is known about this engine, we can only speculate as to which diesel is under the hood, but both inside sources and those folks who have seen/heard this truck in person stated that there is a diesel F-150 in the works.

Even with this in mind, some people expect that when Ford wants the F-150 to be the most efficient half ton truck in the market, the Motor Company will instead opt for hybrid technology. Ford trails only Toyota in terms of hybrid sales in the U.S., so there is arguably no company that knows both trucks and hybrids better than Ford.

With all of this in mind, we come to our Question of the Week.

Do you think that Ford should go with a hybrid drivetrain or a diesel engine in the F-150?
