As of now I think Chevy is the only one who has confirmed their half ton will get a diesel.

i'm wanting to say that ford started manufacturing these motors over a year ago somewhere in the UK. If that is correct, there are going to be A LOT of these motors sitting in storage somewheres. Wanting to say that I read it in a Diesel World magazine article in the beginning "short clip" section of the magazine.

Its a inline 6, and I guess they didnt want another I6 competeing with them self. And from what I gather the f150 is getting an ecoboost turbocharged direct injected v6 and may not get the 4.4 diesel at all or atleast not for a while.

It would most likely need modifications, and being that we have yet to see the motor in an 150, its hard to tell.

It sounded as tho GM was axing the idea of the 1/2ton Diesel. . .
