2 million is just the 7.3

International may have produceed 2 million 7.3's but I would imagine that cummins produced at least that if not more 5.9's. It's hard to compare them though because both had industrial uses other than comsumer trucks. 2 million is alot of engines to produce but it still doesn't support the statement that Ford outsells GM and Dodge in diesels because the last 7.3 was made 10 years ago.

The article said that for 2005 they sold less than the competiotn combined. As for Ford selling more diesels on an annual basis than Chevy and Dodge combined I don't know how they can make that claim when they have just admitted to not selling as many as the competion combined in 2005.

Super Duty continues to be the diesel leader. Ford Motor Company sold nearly as many diesel Super Duty's in 2005 (242,545) as the combined total of diesel trucks sold by the competition (296,682). They are on track to do the same for 2006.

That's my point. You just said it. In 2005 they DID NOT sell as many as the other two combined. You said "ford sells more diesels than dodge and chevy combined" they don't.

Close enough. Note how close the numbers are...

I think you should note that the number ford sold is lower than the number dodge and chevy did. I don't care if 300,000 people bought a ford diesel in 2005, it still doesn't have an effect on the quality of the product

The article is at least credible. Not a Internet blogger posting non-sence about a deceased block that ulsd has buried long ago. But I do miss the 7.3. It was the last bullet proof ford diesel. Rip.

In 2006 gm introduced the lbz. It boasted more power than the competition and less maintenance costs backed by a 6spd auto. And I believe this was the start of the pickup diesel race. This was also a year that ram increased diesel availability bc of the demand. and I believe ford has been playing catchup untill the introduction of another ford built block with 6.7 and the 6 spd auto in 2011. Ram has and probably always will stand tall on the cummins. But their chassis lack the heavy duty appeal that ford and gm has. I mean their crew can dually boasts 2500# of payload. Come on! ford and gm has over 4k on a single rear wheel.

And the article is very selective in not including gmc. As gmc has a more extensive truck line than Chevy. So by playing with the wording it is secretly misleading.
