Neither , they are both Fords . Find a nice Honda and laugh all the way to the bank .


A diesel will always be more reliable / durable than a Petrol engine, as a turbine will be more reliable than a diesel. The U.S. just isn't a Diesel market, (Low Petrol costs) despite calling Michigan home for more than 100 years, Ford also continues to deny its home market a large percentage of its global model range. As all manufactures do here in the U.S.
