    It's true. With Ram and Nissan having a diesel option I guess Ford decided to play along and offer a 1/2 ton diesel. I believe 2019 1/2 ton GM's will offer a 3 liter diesel as well.

    It's only going to be available in Lariat and up trim levels. You are going to pay a lot to save on mileage. They are estimating 30 mpg. My Ecoboost is supposed to get up to 19/26 and I'm averaging 16, so it'll be interesting what the mileage really turns out like.

    I'd love to have one, but I don't think it would make sense unless you did a lot of towing.

    It makes no sense even if you tow as its still a half ton truck and will get beat up with too much extended towing. I towed my boat 5K dry about 7500 loaded with my f150 3.5 ecoboost no problem stopping or pulling but any time I went over an hour or so at highway speeds it just wasn't comfortable, especially considering I had the 6.0 F350 prior. The only thing this diesel F150 makes a lot of sense to me is fleet 1/2 ton trucks that are driven a lot as it will take many miles to recoop the cost.

    Chevy has also. Not really see much advantage in a half ton. Expensive option.

    I agree with the comments. Doesn’t make much sense. But what price is it worth to hear the purr of that diesel......

    I am just a diesel fanatic. But at this stage in my life I wouldn’t buy one. But it this were available when I bought my dressed out ‘09 I might have gone for it since I went all out anyway buying my dream/retirement truck.

    I didn’t see it in the build & price on Ford’s site - still curious......

    Might be my next truck- about 2022

    LOL, if they hold up and do well I'll be looking for one about 2022. Four years old, 100,000 or so miles and I might be able to afford it. Nope, probably not as I hope to be retired then so no available.

    I like the idea but adding cost to trucks that are already out of sight is killing my interest. I guess I'd better change the oil on my current 2006 - it probably needs to keep going for a long time.

    That’s exactly where I am. I had to “retire” early and will never be able to afford another new truck. I bought my ‘09 new and planned for it to be my last truck. I should be able to do it unless it gets totalled somehow.....

    Chevy is putting the duramax in the '19 silverado 1500. Also, ford has come out with an opposed piston engine that they plan to have in the f150 very soon.
