Welcome to RF.

Nice truck I wish we could get Turbo Diesels here in the US... It seems as if ford forgets the US when it comes to the awesomeness of small Turbo Diesels

Those aren't the US equivalents. You would need to convert those figures from their currency to USD.

I think its hilarious that ford wont make a US version of this and it's 2010. They're like the kid on the playground who gets bullied and instead of fighting back he sulks and goes to the corner and cries and doesn't know what to do. (the bullies are Toyota/Nissan/GM/Chrystler, the playground is the U.S. sub-fullsize pickup market)
