There is alot that Ford is not telling you about these new diesel trucks. The new engines are designed to comply with the new federal diesel emission regulations. The way these engines work is extra fuel is used to super heat the combustion chambers and burns off the sooty particulates (or black smoke) that you see from the previous engine's exhaust. This is even more apparent when the engine is under heavy loads like towing. Unfortunately it severely effects the trucks mileage.

I test drove Ford's SuperDuties and was impressed by the overall feel and look of the truck. It's a nice truck, but...
1. My last Ford stalled and stalled.
2. Dealers said they had never heard of such a thing.
3. Ford was involved in a class action suit for its vehicles stalling over a large number of years.

I might have overlooked this and still bought one, but ...
1. I don't need to haul as much heavy stuff right now.
2. I don't want to fear the cost of servicing 6 (or is it seven?) radiators.
3. I think that any vehicle over 30 grand ought to have at least 6 forward gears.

So I went with a Tundra. Even without the fully boxed frame I still have confidence its engine will start with the first turn and run until I get to where I'm going.
