What do we have here? You hear that? That sounds like a diesel in a Ford F-150 mule. We’ve heard pretty confident rumors before about Ford’s interest in developing a diesel F-150 model, and this new video seems to feature just that.

Check out the clattery noise and custom panels of the F-150, from Off-Road.com via spy photog Brian Williams:

The earlier reports claimed that Ford would develop a diesel model of the new generation of the F-150 pickup and likely source the engine from Jaguar-Land Rover, which would mean a 3.0 liter V6 diesel good for around 250 hp and 443 lb-ft of torque.

Despite the recent bad publicity on diesel coming from Volkswagen’s offerings, Nissan will offer a Cummins Diesel option for its new crew cab Titan XD and GM offers a Duramax with the new Chevy Colorado and GMC Canyon. But the current Ram 1500 EcoDiesel is the obvious target for a prospective diesel F-150, which apparently is now happening!
