I can’t believe this. I just got mine 5 days ago from Iowa because I had a hunch they would discontinue it. Literally one of their better engines!

Ford never put any effort in r&d for this engine which is basically a 2004 design plus they charge the big price for it. No wonder it’s not selling well look at the L6 duramax on the other hand.

They never advertised it either. So many people still have no clue it exists. Meanwhile the suburban/Tahoe got 3.0 diesel and are selling well.

No need to keep the 3.0 PS since there are better and cheaper engine options.

Diesel fuel prices are going up so get ready.

The Powerboost has a better EPA MPG average (24 over 23) and it's take rate is higher. It makes economic sense to drop the small diesel engine from the lineup.

I agree what killed it was the intro to the PB and the power onboard technology. I really wanted a 3.0 at the beginning for better mileage than my previous truck getting 14MPG, so the PB with the added tech sold me.

now… if the 3.0 had any variations of the power onboard, I would of been on it!!

I agree, lack of pro power makes it a less attractive option. That same tech tho can be a potential pain down the line. It’ll be interesting to see the long term reliability of the PB electronics on board.

I could live without the pro power stuff. The much better MPG of the diesel was worth it for me. And honestly not having the inverter constantly on has been pleasant as of late LOL.

And another thing that shocked me about the 3.0 was the low payload numbers… but you are right time will tell in the longevity of the PB and the battery

Not surprised. The 3.0 #s aren't impressive at all compared to the 5.0, 3.5 and 3.5PB. Its a ridiculously expensive option and just doesn't perform as good as the other 3 I mentioned. Another thing killing it is diesel prices. IF diesel fuel (and e85) were a lot cheaper, they'd be selling a lot better. That's why I have no interest in a flex fuel vehicle. The cost of e85 is ridiculous too.

One thing that most people overlooked is that the 3.0 PS is nothing but a slightly different Lion engine that’s been in the Range Rover SUV in Europe for years.

The GM twins received a clean sheet designed straight six diesel.

Something not many people mention is that the 3.0 diesel just kills your payload. It’s what, 400 lbs heavier than the 3.5 EB? Atleast with the PB you get extra GVWR to make up for some of the battery weight, but with the diesel you just have to take it.

It’d be a towing monster with all the torque, but without the payload you’re sorta stuck. Then what’s it good for? Fuel economy? You have the PB that comes pretty close with that. Engine longevity? The fact that it’s an old Range Rover design doesn’t really inspire confidence.

I bet this transition was planned for 2022 or maybe even later, but with the PB getting such great reviews and seemingly selling well, must have been an easy call to move this forward.

another post, someone with a KR and Platinum were getting 1,140 and 1,250 lb payload respectively! I mean I know all the gadgets and extra adds to the low numbers, but still…Yikes
