i don't know if I'd say that, the 6.7 haven't been truly proven yet. I think the 6.4 still has great resale, I know my buddy was looking for one and had a hard time finding any at his dealer. just my .02

i believe in life there are greater issues of worry other than the resale of a truck.

but if its a topic of concern i would be at ease. every few years in the auto industry the makers perform changes to their vehicles from styling to powertrain, this is a constant. i can`t recall a motor type actually reducing the value of a vehicle in previous model years because the newer version is something that is proclaimed "better".

that is yet to be determained in this case

and as consumers this is the evil we must face: making a purchase that is to be outdated in the near future.

so if i were you, i would go take a prozac, chase it with a high quality beer, enjoy your health and happiness, and take your truck out for a spin when you sober up

i thought we bought diesel so that it would last 300k, if you want to trade your truck in every few years why not save money and buy a gaser?

I plan to keep this truck until the day I die. I may buy other vehicles in the years to come, but this F250 will always be in my driveway. Just because something newer comes along, it doesn't necessarily make it better. I like the look of my truck better than the 2011. I like the 2011, but the exterior design is a step backwards, in my opinion.

I'm not worried at all. Resale on the 6.4L is strong now and I don't see the 6.7L doing a whole lot to hurt that. The new trucks are significantly more expensive and the styling isn't for everyone. Granted the 6.7L may prove to be a great motor but most are very happy with their 6.4L. I absolutely love my truck and have no intentions of getting rid of it for a new one, at least for a few more years. This is the only vehicle I've kept for more than a year as well.

I agree...a year ago I wanted to get an 11 as soon as they hit the lots...but now I have decided against that...not due to funds but due to the fact that I like my current truck more so than any vehicle I have owned in the past, and more so than the 11s. I am not stuck in the past and cant say a new truck is better than an old one...but the changes inside are very suttle (nothing like going from my 05 to the 08) and the ext changes are a bit too "feminine" to me. I am interested in the new engine though for sure.

As far as actual HP numbers I have no idea. It don't snap your neck but.....It feels good.
