Exclamation It's About Time

It is about time someone stepped up and it looks like it's going to be Ford. May have to invest in a 2nd one or trade in the current when the time comes. Depending on how much time and money i have invested by the release of this bad boy...

Yeah, nobody else has been working on a 1/2-ton diesel for the past couple years.

They all are and the 5.0 Cummins and 4.5 Duramax are also due in 2010.

Fords impressed me alot lately. Hopefully since the engine has been around for a little while (albeit fairly short) it won't have too many problems at first launch like a certain other diesel...

Most of the other companies are focusing on Hybrids, and while they are getting slightly better, but I'm still not sold on them.

I'm really interested to see how their EcoBoost engines pan out. Now if they brought back the 300 six for the F-series in a EcoBoost version... *drool*
