I just checked the Edmunds pricing for the 2015 F-150.
In the Lariat SuperCrew version, the MSRP of the 3.5L V-6 Ecoboost is $400 more than the MSRP of the 5.0L V-8........

Traded it in on a 2014 Ram 2500 with the Cummins and it is a totally different experience.
No Crap? Big difference is it?

Not everybody buys new. A year or 2 old half ton will be thousands and thousands less than a 1 or 2 year old one ton diesel. Can find them around 27k vs 40 for a diesel.

your right, but the OPs questions was about a new truck, so need to compare apples to apples. Besides, diesels have always had better resale value, whether it's 1 year old or 15, it's always worth more.

The OP's post was also about 2 non diesel trucks as well.

In case you missed it, he made his choice already too...

I'll work hard to keep that GVWR down so I don't get arrested by the weight police!

For the price of a new half ton , you might as well buy a 3/4 or a one ton. 45 grand for a grocery hauler .
