Powerwagon 46 will become famous soon enough

I'm not sure Ford is concerned but you can bet they are paying attention. Trucks make big bucks for all of the big three. From what I've read Ford was caught off guard by the introduction of the 3.0 diesel for '14. To keep competitive in MPG wars they are going with aluminum to reduce weight and thus increase MPG. However, aluminum is expensive as compared to steel so I would not be surprised to see a diesel from Ford (and maybe GM) in the next several years.
