Whenever something new on the automotive scene begins to make its way out of the market, consumers are interested in every last facet of the machine. Whether or not it’s something that we will consider buying is another topic entirely but curiosity is piqued as we take a look at some of the new innovations across the board. New ideas come and go and sometimes, companies will come out with one that will stick for a long period of time, becoming the norm in the community and being able to see that technology as it makes its way to market can be incredibly exciting, to say the least.
One stellar example of exactly how something like this might work is how Ford has decided recently that they will be bringing diesel technology to their light duty line of trucks. Normally, these engines are reserved for half ton machines and larger, but it seems like there has recently been a sort of movement to bring diesel power to these light duty trucks with several manufacturers and it’s an interesting project to see how it all pans out.
After all, diesel engines do provide a lot of upside and different features that you can’t really expect from gasoline engines. It’s also important to remember that when it comes to trucks, not everybody wants something that big.
If you follow along with the video below, we watch as TFLTruck takes a dive, head first, into the 2018 Ford F-150 as powered by diesel. After checking this thing out and getting the full rundown from top to bottom, tell us what you think of this new trend that is putting different power under the hood of the latest F-150. Do you think that this is something that will catch on or will we eventually see the death of the trend?
