Has anyone seriously priced out the 2016 vs. 2017 recently? Looking through various sites it seems the added incentives on the 2016's and the small bump in pricing for 2017 puts the real difference at around $6,000 for an XLT/Lariet F350 with the 6.7. Is that about right?

As an example, I'm seeing deals for about $5,000 off MSRP for 2017's but more like $10,000 for 2016's (and the MSRP is already slightly lower).

The new electronics are absurd and estimated 450hp and 1000lbs of torque will blow the tires off your AS. I am not a diesel guy any more, but if I was, the 2017 is way above bad ass.
I test drove one today. I opened the tailgate and couldn't believe how light it was. Then I found it is aluminum. The whole truck body that is.
Yes its one impressive machine. We are ordering one tomorrow.

Not sure what you are referring to. I had no issues with my 2012 The 6.7 was a new Ford designed and built engine in 2011.

It has performed flawlessly and not even dripped one spot of oil. Having owned a long line or Ford diesels from the first one, this 2011 has been a great truck even better than my bulletproof 2001 7.3.
There are however 3 things (minor) that I don't like. First the entertainment and navigation systems are terrible. Second, why can't they put full roll down windows on the rear doors like they have on the F150 Supercab? Third, there is no overhead light on the rear seat area of the Supercab. You have to have a flashlight to find anything behind the front seats. Still the 2017 has a lot of great improvements over the 2011.
The navigation system is all new and much better. The supercab has power windows in the rear doors and a light in the rear seat area.

Yes and No
The box is deeper and the belt line is higher but the cab is the same.
I parked my 2012 beside the 2017 so I had a good visual comparison. The hitch is 3 " taller

Ford had a promotional exhibit at the Hendersonville, NC Apple Festival. Got to test drive and check three models out. I am IN LOVE with the F250 diesel with the King Ranch trim! Man that thing is beautiful! Got to test out the trailer camera, being an inexperienced tower this thing was gold in my eyes. The four cameras will simultaneously run and the computer will piece the video together to give you a complete overhead view of your entire rig. There were many camera features, I was truck lusting too much to really get all the technical info. Thing was awesome! I think my wife is sold on it to as the back seat has an additional 4 inches of leg room compared to the previous models...enough room for us to fit our growing baby girls and their carseats. She also noted how quiet the diesel engine was, the noise and smell has always been a turnoff for her.

We have 20 entries into the drawing for a new one to be announced at the beginning of the new year...a man can dream can't he? Until then we'll keep saving our dollars and wait a few years until the kinks and price work themselves out. For now we're more than content with our paid for '05 Ford Excursion

Use Mr. Google, search and read on. 2011 engine was modified later as well, turbo layout was changed. Look at DPF regeneration and issues created. Search for Technical Service Bulletins and the like.

Show me a truck (or anything else) that doesn't have some kind of negativity on Google. I love the ones that start off "My sisters boyfriends uncles next door neighbour has one and its the worst thing he has ever owned, so bad he stopped making the payments" I don't know what you have but I am sure there is bad stuff on the internet about it. If there isn't let me know cause I want one.
I can only tell you about my personal experience with my 2012 F250 6.7 Powerstroke. It was everything I wanted it to be, I had ZERO problems. 200,000 km 1 set of brakes 1 set of tires plus regular maintenance thats it. I think the true test to customer satisfaction is if they buy another one and I did. Just took delivery of a 2017 F250 6.7 Powerstroke

Glad all is well for you.

I personally do not call issuance of a technical service bulletin by Ford internet lore.

Well folks, if you get a copy of the October issue of Trailer Life, the article on the new 2017 Ford Super Duty will knock your socks off. Even the editor that just bought a Ram says he made a mistake, in so many words. There are so many cool new features on the 2017 Super Duty, the article couldn't cover all of them. That being said, it is a very thorough discussion of the major features. If any one is thinking of a new diesel pickup, look no further than a Ford Super Duty for the ultimate tow truck.

Well, then look at the TSB's on the Dodge Cummins and Chevy regen soot box debacle. Thanks to the EPA, all of the diesel engines had major issues and that's why everyone went with a urea injection system. That is why all of the diesel pickup engine manufacturing companies are using that system today, so it wasn't just Ford engines.

We just signed the order and paid the deposit on an order for a 2017 F-250 Super Duty Diesel, Crew Cab, Lariat Ultimate in Ingot Silver to match the AS. We could have gotten a much better deal on a 2016 however considering the major improvements and the improved styling of the 2017 it didn't make any sense.
