Loud Pedal Heavy
Eco boosts are pretty slick. I bet they will stick with that. I am not holding my breath on this 1/2 ton diesel truck. While yes it would be cool and I'd like it to happen, I feel it won't happensee I was wondering about that...I'm also curious to see what Ford does now. If they do this or just stick with the eco-boost...which is by far the best half ton pickup engine out right now
Exactly. It's not going to get near the projected mileage and it's going to be nutless at the same time. Plus who wants to drive a good looking truck that sounds like total shit. I'd be embarrassed to drive VW that sounded like a VW let alone a Ram that sounded like a VW. :huh:Chances are it'll be so congested with emissions compliance bullshit that it'll either have no power what so ever or it'll get horrible fuel economy for a small diesel. I personally would love to see something like a 4bt in a small pickup like the Dakota, no urea crap, no dpf, no egr, etc but needless to say it'll never happen.
I like the sound of real diesels, like the 5.9. But a little ping pong diesel like that is just atrocious sounding.Seriously? Diesels do not sound like crap. It's just when idiots put 10" trash can tips on them. A nice 5" setup sounds the best on diesel trucks. Obviously on the vw that's impossible.
