Drive Wire: These Spy Shots Suggest the F-150 Is Packing Turbodiesel

We have spy shots of a Ford F-150 pickup truck which include a strange and wonderful detail. See that exhaust tip? That, plus the growl reported by the shooter, suggest that this pickup is packing turbodiesel power, most likely from a three-liter land rover turbodiesel V6. This would give the pickup good numbers at the pump plus around four hundred forty foot-pounds of grunty torque. Although Ford has refused to comment on the possible turbodiesel, we know what we want in our heart of hearts – nice as the Ecoboost F-150 may be, this would be a fun diesel indeed.
