Diesels are arriving at dealers now.

Just saw on FB that the dealer I use, Pegues-Hurst Ford in Longview, Texas has just received their second diesel F-150. So evidently they are arriving at the dealers now.

New here, and just like some of you I've been waiting on the sidelines for this new 3.0. I've searched through the limited info and specs on them and without getting anywhere, I went to the dealership to actually look at one. One of the things that is important to me is towing and these are offered with a 3.31 and 3.55 rear. Naturally, the 3.55 will get you the better tow rating. Finding one is tough and it seems that only about 1 in 4 have this configuration. Add in the tow package and the "super duty style" side mirrors, and you have a little tow rig. Of course this new 3.0 apparently isnt good enough for the blue collar XL/XLT peasants and the truck I had to look at was a Platinum level trim. My main concern was that this truck will be a sick dog trying to get out of its own way, not the case at all, at least not with the 3.55 gearset. The shifts were quick and tight and I didnt feel too much turbo lag at all. At idle the truck has the unmistakable diesel chatter and it sounds really cool outside but not noticeable on the inside. The truck I test drove had a MSRP of $69k, about what you can get a platinum 6.7 SD for. I wanted to ask the dealer about any guinea pig discounts for this new unproven power stroke since I would be the first wave of customers to take it on the chin if it turns out to be another 6.0. I already knew about the overinflated price tag for these but it was the lack of pedigree for this engine and the measly 60k warranty that they now offer that made me walk away, at least for now.

I drove an F-150 King Ranch today. Nearly $71000 sticker price. Very quiet, good throttle response. Seems to have plenty of power but I didn't get on it too hard. Ford will probably sell as many as they can produce.

Only schmucks will buy this truck trying to compete with the jones. This truck failed on the TFL YouTube channel and cost the same as a 6.7 which effectively is double the truck common sense and math should tell you to steer clear and maybe ford will price it respectively.

Agree, unless they start to offer it in a base package it will have a short life like many diesel in smaller vehicles, the diesel is a $4K option but really a $13K upgrade as you need a minimum Lariat package. The only manufacture to be successful offering a diesel in a smaller vehicle in the US has been VW you didn't need to have the top package to get that option, Chevy tried it with the cruse but the cost for their diesel went from a base price of $18K to $38K. dumb...

smart of ford trickle a few of the "high end" high profit trucks first, people will buy them. Dodge had the same tactic with the ecodiesel.
