2009.5 Ford F-150 Diesel Spotted

2009 Ford F-150 Diesel: 2009.5 Ford F-150 Diesel Spotted, Could Produce 350 HP

According to KGP, the new engine should be capable of a 9% increase in power and a 15% increase in torque relative to the 5.4-liter gas V8. According to this leaked report, the gas V8 should be capable of 320 HP and 390 lb-ft of torque.
Jalopnik Snap Judgment: Doing the math, this would put the diesel V8 at approximately 350 HP and 450 lb-ft of torque, while still achieving 20% fuel economy. Let's hope sources and calculators don't lie.

Hmm... will it be enough to reinvigorate the pickup sales market?
I think it will probably be launched, timing with diesel at its highest...

20 percent fuel economy saving is not enough, if the price premium for diesel over gasoline holds over the long term. I was hoping for a four or six on the order of 200-250hp 300-350ft-lb and a 33 percent economy increase.
