Hang In There!

As a newbie, you'll have to forgive me if I have the wrong forum.

In the past 14 months, I have had 55,000km of the most trouble free driving I have ever experienced! I have a 2011 F350 CC SRW used for everything from towing a 16000lb trailer/skidsteer combo to boucing through bush. This engine/tranny combo is nothing short of amazing.

Just wanted to let the guys suffering from catastrophic engine trauma to hang in there! Considering the level of innovation this engine offers, the reliability rate for the first year are very impressive. My previous truck was a 2005 Dodge 3500 w/cummins. All the dodge guys (myself included) preach about cummins reliability. Well, my Cummins cost me a total of $90,000 in repairs and missed work. Just goes to show you that every manufacturer can suffer from these issues. And dodge has had over 40 years to sort there engines out.

I am a fully converted Blue Oval guy now, even bought my wife a 2012 F150 CC!

Not sure what is so innovative about this engine.

It has less capability than the previous engine. I think that's called a step backwards.

What are you basing this on. That you can't tune it and get the same power as a tuned 6.4.

IMHO, to have an engine that does not need to be tuned in order to make it more reliable, unlike the 6.4, is a positive step.

I can say this as I used to own one.....

If, in your opinion, the engine has less capability...then why did you buy one?
If you don't in fact own one, then what brings you to the 6.7 forum? I may be just a newbie, but isn't hijacking threads bad form?

My truck wears the 6.7 badge with pride!

Well, my Cummins cost me a total of $90,000 in repairs and missed work. Just goes to show you that every manufacturer can suffer from these issues. And dodge has had over 40 years to sort there engines out.

I just sold my 07(5.9) simply cause I like the look and sound of ford specifically the king ranch. I have a 6.4 and a f-450 6.7 now. The Cummins towed like a champ and when it broke I could fix it myself quick and cheap. I'm not dogging ford or dodge but that 5.9 had more as s then the 6.4 all round stock to stock and being a srw the dodge towed as well maybe a little less as the 450 but it shouldn't compare. Any truck has problems but the 450 wouldn't go over 50 mph uphill towing 17k on a gooseneck yesterday. Maybe somethings wrong but it's rated for the upper 20's
