RE: North American Truck of the Year

V10 you have a very valid point, if they replace the V10 with a V8 5.0 EB that should not affect Fords CAFE ratings. As far as HD trucks go, as of now they are not included but 2020?? In 2016 the manufacturers will have to hit combined EPA of 34.1 MPG for cars, suvs and LD trucks. The reason fuel mileage is in question is show below. No you are right, not everyone wants a diesel. But bottom line they are coming no matter what some people think. Diesels make better fuel mileage no matter the cost of the fuel. Bottom line the Gov does not care what a fuel costs, they care how much fuel a particular vehicle uses, period. LINK Projected Fuel Economy Standard Light Duty Trucks 2016 2017 2018 2019 2020 2021 2022 2023 2024 2025 28.09 29.1 29.6 30.0 30.6 32.6 34.2 35.8 37.5 39.3 Here is a link to a PDF file for MD-HD class 2b-8 trucks

RE: Do you leave your diesel running ...?

My two cents, if I'm just fueling up and will be at the truck/pump it stays running. If I'm going the check the oil or go inside the truck gets shut down. As Hannibal said, there is no need to let the turbo cool down if you drove at surface street speeds for a few blocks. Unless you just pulled a hard grade and rolled right in to a fuel stop, outlook or whatever. Don

RE: North American Truck of the Year

OK over in the auto show thread a link was post talking about the Tundra and the 5.0 CTD. I was told the 5.0 CTD was not going in the Tundra by a Toyota rep at the show. Here is the LINK If you read it you will find this! "Sources say Ford is working on a light duty diesel as well, planning for a 2018 arrival. With new pressure from its competitors, it will be interesting to see if Ford can join the crowd in time." A V8 Ecoboost in a HD truck just does not make any sense. The V6 does not make very good fuel mileage UNLESS you tape an egg to the top of the go pedal and a block of wood under it to limit its travel! On boost it is a pig, off boost it's OK but noting to right home about! So do any of you think Ford is going to build a V8 EB and trash their CAFE ratings? They have the highest CAFE ratings of all the Auto Makers don't they (or so they say)? The game changer is their 10 speed trans, with it they may be able to keep a V8 EB some what economical. But what is that going to do to the cost of their trucks. The Ram Ecodiesel costs the same as a F-150 EB but the Ram comes with the ZF 8HP70 the Ford runs a 6 speed. Add the cost of the 10 speed in to it and the Ford is going to be very pricy I think. Don I built a F-150 with the same options or as close as I could, Ford does not have a diesel 150 so I built a 3.5 sorry about that EB an 2.7 EB is minus $1,200 to the cost and what a cost! 2015 Ford F-150 LARIAT SuperCrew®, 5-1/2' Box, 3.5L V6 EcoBoost® Engine, 6-Speed Automatic Electronic Transmission w/Tow/Haul Mode, 4X4, 3.55 Electronic Locking Axle Ratio; Pricing shown for ZIP code 43551 as of January 22, 2015 BASE MSRP S1 $45,665 Total of Options S4 $9,155 Destination Charges $1,195 Subtotal $56,015 Available Incentives S3 $0 NET PRICE S5 $56,015 OMG note, this truck does not have the HD payload or tow packages!!! :E So much for the couple guys saying the Ecodiesel costs to much! Wait until the new trans comes online and see what it does to the price of a F-150! Note, my Ram listed out at $53,308 that's $2,702 more for a gas V6 Ford!

RE: Auto Show Pics

Nissan is playing for keeps ,was Toyoda there with the cummins? No and I was told, (again for what it is worth) that they have no plans to put a diesel in their truck! But I was told by a Ford engineer that there would not be a V8 Ecoboost and all the Ford guys said that's dead wrong. So only time will tell, the Toyota Tundra forum says no diesel in the Tundra also. Don

RE: North American Truck of the Year

I really think the engineer was correct on Ecoboost. That is because Ford trademarked Ecobeast. Therefore, the V8 could be named that, and the engineer is technically correct. I am surprised that Don did not take and post the picture of the Nissan pickup bed with the fiver rails and goose neck. I could not get up to the trucks, the one I could get to was not the diesel. I did post some picks and one shows where the fiver bolts to the frame. But it was the truck without the bed. http://i1343.photobucket.com/albums/o790/Dtropnevad/2015%20Detroit%20Auto%20Show/20150118_131404_zpshcrfq2z9.jpg height=450 width=450 As for the V8 Ecoboost/Ecobeast I can only report what I was told. If they choose to lie then that is on them. Sad if that is what he was doing IMO. Don

RE: North American Truck of the Year

The GT40 had a lot of interest, always a crowd around that display. Dodge had a racing game where you sat in a Hellcat and there was a large screen in front of it. You raced around a track, was a hit with the crowds if you wanted to kill an hour or so waiting for your turn.

RE: North American Truck of the Year

Don you should of next asked him "what will replace the V10" ? Didn't think about that, remember I'm not a Ford guy. ;) I did ask if they were going to build a small diesel for the US market and he said ""he could not comment on that, only time will tell" with a grin on his face". Maybe the Ranger will be coming back? They have a 1.5 liter diesel for use everywhere but in the US and Canada. Troy they can say if a rumor is false, the tell is when they make a comment like he did about a small diesel in the US market. May bad, I forgot to ask about our Canadian friends. Don

Wait 2 more years for the SuperDuty aluminum body truck with the 5.0 EcoBeast. I'll be in line for that one. That'll have the new Sync in it also, get rid of that MicroSoft mistake. That could be a very much non starter. It will be just a 5 litre turbocharged engine, not even mildly Ecoboost If it gets turbos it will be a ecoboost,its what Ford does now. Well DW and I went to the Detroit Auto Show and I talked to a Ford Powertrain Engineer and was told by him (already knew this) there will be no V8 Ecoboosts not now not ever. So that should end that discussion. Don

Serial #1 just sold on Barrett Jackson for a cool $1 Million! Wow that's better than the 1st Z06 convertible that sold for 800,000 to who else but Hendrick. A little side note "In total, Hendrick has managed to purchase every first new Corvette C7 model that has crossed the auction block including the first Stingray coupe, first Stingray convertible, first Z06 coupe and now the first Z06 convertible. The previous three cars that Hendrick purchased were all black with red interior and since the Z06 convertible was built prior to heading to auction, the American automaker did so with the same color scheme assuming that Hendrick would be the winning bidder."

RE: New 2015 Ram 1500 ECODIESEL HFE

I am just stopping by the TOWING forum, which has become WEENIE truck land. Where on the TOWING forum, we advocate for the slowest truck with the least power, and have determined that in spite of industry data to prove otherwise, most folks use their trucks exclusively to pick up groceries. Cue the twilight zone soundtrack. Or the reality, that many half tons do split duty, part time empty, part time overloaded. And much of the time not being driven gently or slowly. Making underpowered trucks that require a $200 service, and fuel that costs 50% the dumbest possible option I can think of. North Dakota Fuel Price. Gasoline $1.99 Diesel $2.95 Even if you only want a grocery getter, you don't need a 6000# one that burns fuel that is 50% more. Do we really need power windows,leather,sun roof, aluminum wheels,carpet on the floors, heated and a/c seats......... Why did you have to quote that Troll? But now that you did, WTF are you talking about $200 service? If you are one of the uninformed haters that feels they need to spread lies please start your own thread to do it. FYI you can buy an 8 oil service package from Mopar that gets the cost down to $46.88 (do the math Troll Boy) per oil change, that beats the Ecoboosts oil change! Full Euro 100% synthetic oil (Pennzoil), filter, lube, tire rotation and top off all fluids. A far cry from $200. Don

RE: New 2015 Ram 1500 ECODIESEL HFE

The best way to see if a truck is a boulevard cruiser is to look in the bed. Is the paint or liner nice and clean or does it look like a working trucks bed? Most 150/1500 sold will be boulevard cruisers, only to be used occasionally to haul or tow. This is an RV Forum so everyone tows with their trucks! But there are a few guys on the MH forum that use pickups as a toad. Not sure why but this is America and they can do what they want! I have 4WD but will go four wheeling like I used to back in the day. I have it for use in the snow but there are plenty of guys that pay $48,000+ on a 4X4 and then take it off roading. I just don't have that kind of expendable income. Don

Yeah good for Ford for sticking their neck out. Good Luck and happy returns stock holders :W Ford Stockholders have done well. Ford is by far the highest return investment of the big 3 historically. Yep it took me over four years sitting on my pile of $1.80/1.97 Ford stock to make a nice tidy sum. Sold it when it hit $13.00 a share! Thanks FMC or F. It was a ballsy move on Ford's part and I hope it sells like hot cakes. I have a lot of that work for Ford. Would like to see any link that shows Ford is doing a V8 Ecoboost. That would be a real link not a fan site link!

RE: New 2015 Ram 1500 ECODIESEL HFE

Motor Trend has the 2.7 ecoboost handily beating the ecodiesel in all of their timed runs. I have a 2012 F150 ecoboost and a 2014 JGC ecodiesel. My ecoboost will smoke the ecodiesel at any speed. I tried it. The F150 has a 3.73 ratio where the JGC has a 3.45 so maybe that is the difference. If I turn the traction control off of the ecoboost I will smoke the tires once the turbos spool up. Also there is a 1,000 lb. weight disadvantage with my F150 versus my JGC. And your point is?? Of what importance is that? My point is in response to Dons post. And your point is???? I do not have the Jeep GC I have a Ram with 3.92 gears that will also "smoke the tires" if I turn off the traction control and put it in 2WD. BTW it didn't take the Ford very long before it walked right away form me. But the little under powered Ecodiesel looked good off the line! Don I could say I backed off and let the ford win....but anyone that has every drove a Ecoboost would know that is bull excrement :W
