I found this on the fordf150.net forums:
"Did some more searching. It's speculated that the diesel to be used is a punched out version of the one being used in Europe. That motor is a 3.6L Twin-turbo V8 with 267hp and 472 torque that gets the Land Rover 31 mpg. The punched out version for the F150 would be a 4.4L. So with a little wishful thinking math....
the 4.4 is 22.5% bigger than the 3.6, 22.5% more HP is 327, 22.5% more torque is 578, and 22.5% less mpg (bigger motor) is 24 mpg. I could deal with that."
