Did you lock the keys in the truck on the day of the photo shoot? There aren't any pics of the interior.

All new diesel engines are expensive because the emissions requirements have become incredibly tough. The exhaust system alone costs a small fortune. Emissions come at some price. all new trucks also include a lot more safety and luxury features now than ever before. I don't always agree with it, but that's the state of the industry right now.
Workhorse... True, but why are they making these diesels so outrageously priced? Diesels are work trucks. My parents own a farm and I moved hay today with my dad's 2006 F-350 Powerstroke at 20,000 pounds per load (this truck was about $45,000 new), and suffice it to say that did not involve any on-road work. In fact, the terrain it pulled the loaded flatbed over is impassable for anything but ATVs, tractors and 4x4s. I have driven the new Powerstroke and it is nice... but definitely not $65,000 nice. When you guys act impressed about pulling a 4,800 pound trailer without incident, I remember pulling 20,000 pound trailers at 80 mph with a 2006 and wonder how you can really write a positive review about a $65,000 truck. Considering the condition of the economy now compared to even 5 years ago (before I started college), how is Ford trying to sell a truck 150% the price of the 2006 model with an added 5% performance? I really hope Volkswagen and Toyota run American carmakers out of business.
"......a total workhorse." $65,000.00......I am without words.
