No. And from whaat I read I won't be towing anything with this version of the F-150. That diesel doesn't have the bonafides for towing.

Look at the 2019 Ram ecodiesel with towing package
They have really hit the sweet spot with payload and towing ability

Is this a RAM 1500 with a 3.0 eco diesel? Do you have anymore information?

Thanks!

Sorry, I don't think Chrysler Fiat has committed to the Ecodiesel engine in 2019. This is what they say...

The new Max Tow Package allows pulling trailers up to 12,750 pounds. Its available only on rear-drive trucks with the eTorque Hemi V-8 engine.

Ram is adding the 3.0 diesel to the new Jeep for MY 19 from what I’ve read. Even bumped the power 260HP 442TQ. So I suspect they are committed. That said I haven’t read that it’s EPA certified yet. Do you have a pic of the MY 19 Ram ED? Dealership told me Monday only no etorque Hemi available yet for MY 19.

I don't have a pic. It I think there's some on the internet
That's interesting on the launch date delay
At the auto show they said it would be at dealers by May

One way they increased payload was to reduce truck weight
They took out about 250 lbs
They partially achieved this by using an aluminum tail gate which I find intriguing
