Did I read that right....12K Towing with over 3K payload (granted that will be for a reg cab, 2wd) but holy cow!!! For a guy like me who just needs a few extra Lbs of payload to be happy, this is a game changer. It likely could keep me out of a 3/4 territory and in with an empty MPG advantage. It would take a lot for me to give up on dodge, but those payload numbers are almost if not higher than a new 2500 cummins!

Man this could be big. I bet the price is going to reflect it.

I may have to re-think my plans, I need to upgrade my gas 250 ( getting a little tired ) looking at f250 diesel, but these numbers are truly impressive. I am in no hurry, I will wait till someone on the forum gets one, to get some real numbers. The Ecoboost is something to consider.

Very impressive on the 2.7L diesel as well as the V8 towing and payload specs.

Talked to a fellow with an F150 EB 2013 or maybe 2014, pulling a 34' Airstream (2004-6 wheeler!) last weekend and he said the EB had nearly the torque of his previous 2500 diesel.

So we have Dodge and Ford in the small diesel game. GM next?

Ford's 2.7L is not a diesel it's gas.

Not necessarily wishful thinking! The Ecoboosts have just about equivalent torque characteristics to similarly sized diesels; without the maintenance, purchase cost, and higher fuel price (per gallon).

You can figure subtracting 10% from diesel fuel mileage to adjust for the cost of fuel. So, the Dodge Ecodiesel's 28 is about the same as 25 mpg in gas.

As a pro dodge owner...I just wish they offered payload numbers that were close to the fords in 1/2 tons.
