the 7.3 is a good motor but i bet this 6.7L will really make people change their mind! ford has put a ton of R&D into this engine. Should be pretty sweet.

Well we'll see if they fixed the EGR issues and the new turbo setup seems different with the twin outlet and going to water to air IC.But they need to a hard 50-80k miles on it and see.

We'll see since they ditched Navistar and decided to manufacture the engine in house they'll probably have less issues. Time will tell though.

Sweet vid too. I'd trade my fiddy for one in a heartbeat.

Ouch, last year my buddy pulled his John Deere 9530 Tractor I believe, back the shop with his 2008 cummins 2500, he was bragging that up and down and it only weighed 40,000, it only ate up a set of tires in the process. lol

Truck is horribly ugly in my mind...The 6.7 sounds like it will be a real barn burner though. Looking forward for them to get out of the 6.0l rut.

They have the media launch going on right now in Texas. One of the other guys in the office just got back and told me they had them towing a 21,000 trailer up a winding grade, and had them do a fuel efficiency run and they were able to get 26mpg with the media schlubs driving. Very impressive. I can't wait to drive one myself.

I dont care what anyone thinks. A can of black spray paint in some key areas and that grill would look ten bagillion times better.

I'd rock one.

It's not a real jake brake though, just exhaust brake. Big price tag is horrible, I don't know how guys can justify buying a 50k+ pickup just to drive. Everyone around here has one though.
