Emissions, the 3/4 and 1 Tons are in a different emissions class than the 1/2 tons.

I saw in DP a d-max in a burban..? they should have hjust made thme like that like in 94-98 :shrug: they also need to bring back the tahoe sport.. :Thumbup:
The PSD V-6 has so far proven to be nothing short of a terd. 220-230HP ain't nothing to brag about and certainly won't get anyone excited about buying a diesel F-150.

The 4.5 DMAX is in a league all by itself right now.

There was an article in July about that engine, where you guy's been?

A diesel H2 would be interesting (since Ford's diesel Bronco probably isn't going to happen)


When you consider the size truck the V6 PSD is in and it's intended purpose, it does a pretty good job.
A lot better than the 350 Chebby gassers they've been cramming in Isuzu cab-forward trucks for years (the king of turds)



Just a WAG but I'd bet the V6 PSD is slightly detuned for heavy (up to 19,500lbs GVWR) commercial use in the LCF trucks.

It is for sure. I bet it has to be 300HP just to keep up with GM.

I just got to drive an LCF for the 1st time yesterday. Man, what a terd that was . My 4800 would give it a run for its' money. I'd actually take the 350 gasser if I wanted to go faster.

You don't want the gasser, we have two of them. :
Truth be known, I'd take a UD diesel over any of them.

Uhmm..........................................I'm pretty sure that V6 PSD is going to have turbos like the 6.4. That should exaggerate the 225HP Engine's power. Look at the 6.0's those aren't rated really high. But that variable turbo helps it out quite a bit. Reliability might be a different story. Calling it terd........I'd wait for it to come out.

The PSD V-6 diesel already has twins on it like the 6.4L.


Output is still only 225HP. :

Hmm, how 'bout a 350hp Cummins QSD4.2?

...on second thought, it'll probably be some kind of Mercedes
