I could be wrong.
But if that was the case, a 35-40k 1/2 ton, add diesel = damn near a diesel 3/4 ton truck.
If they do offer the diesel in lower end trim levels than that changes things from that front, somewhat.
True, but a truck market is totally different than the SUV market. I am looking more for the every day use of this truck. It would ride better, get better MPG, better resale, last longer, and still have a lot of pulling power. I don't own some crazy huge trailer, camper, or 5th wheel. I pull a trailer with a Jeep maybe 10 times a year. Like I said I can't justify a 3/4 ton truck. Now if I could get into a 1/2 ton diesel crew cab under $40,000 then it makes more sense.
