Ksch, so you are saying that at least two of us are wrong and the internet is correct. Do no believe everything you read, but you might want to listen to those who have the facts parked in their driveways. You know. Jim

I just received the latest issue of Truck Trend and an article says that Ford's 6.7 diesel engine will be improved to 440 HP and 860 lb-ft for the 2015 pickups. That will be 55 hp and 10 lb-ft over the closest competition. The increase is due to a new single scroll, non-wastegated turbo, revised injectors, and engine management tuning. This new engine design will also replace the Cummins engine now used in F-650 and 750 HD trucks.

My post had two errors. The other - Fiat bought out GM's ownership share in VM Motori during the fourth quarter of 2013.

I am sorry for the use of acronyms. The odd thing is that I think I had replaced my first FSD, fuel solenoid driver, before I knew what it stood for. We have evolved to a point where abbreviations have surpassed the use of fully descriptive words.

Step into any new environment, be it technical or the social network and you are confronted with this. It is not done to confuse it is just a reflection of the current speed we are traveling.

Red, you keep saying that, but the numbers say otherwise. Look at the companies that have large fleets, they do analysis of miles and tons of work vs cost and they buy Fords. There is a Cummins service truck in town and it's a gas F250. I'm going to eventually get a picture of that truck. Could have bought the RAM, but they didn't. (you guys know Dodge doesn't make trucks anymore right?)

Yup, that's the one I have in my driveway! the 2015 SuperDuty.

;-)

So far, so good. It pulls the AS like it wasn't there and we got the complete Cowboy Cadillac (Platinum Edition) so it feels like a limousine!

seem that way right.. but i think the choice between diesel and gas is still a personal preference.

is diesel a better TV,, just bare facts tell the story and in towing, hauling a diesel is better for the most part.. you dont see many OTR tractors that run on gas. nuf said on that.

the overhead of diesel maintenance which is almost double a gasser is one concern for many, plus most guys-gals can do minor repairs to a gasser as that is what we have grown up with.

The guys that started on farms and the like, and had a lot of exposure to diesels are more comfortable messing with them and know the deal. Especially with water and fuel and water in fuel.

I know for me its still up in the air as to getting an older diesel ie 99-2003 7.3L or a GM durmax LTX ? motor or hold on for a newer 2010 5.7L tundra or chev or Ford f-250 with the 5.4L non three valve motor, so reading stuff like that and the other threads help shed a lot of light on the good and sometime the bad of gas or diesel.

it'll keep getting hashed over and over for a while, and, with all the new stuff coming to market will only get worse or different or more confusing..

Gas/diesel

I have done three in frame overhauls on diesels, (one on an irrigation motor , one on a tractor, and one in a medium duty class 7 truck, and I would rater do one as to try and keep a 6.0 Ford running....
