6.7 vs Used 6.4 vs Eco-Boost
As the title suggests, it is time for a second work truck (current truck is 7.3) and I am considering either a new 6.7 or a used 6.4 or new Eco-boost with tow max package. The truck will be used as a daily driver that commutes to and from job sites and tows 6k-10k maybe 1-2 times a week. I do not plan on doing any mods to any of the 3. Here is where I stand on the 3 options and would love to hear what everyone else's opinions or experience is.
1) New 6.7 - Looks great, drives great, ideal for what I am looking for. My hesitation is that I would have to make monthly payments and still a little weary of jumping into the first couple years of the new power train. What does everyone think of the new engine and tranny?
2) Used 6.4 - Sold one about 6 months ago because it was never being used and not needed at the time. Had 50k on it and only issue was the DPF which was replaced and then ran fine. I won't be doing any of the deletes, will this engine be more or less reliable then the 6.7?
3) Eco-boost - with Tow max package. An employee has one configured exactly how I want it and admittedly I was very very impressed with just about everything. Seems like the best DD option and he even allowed me to tow about 6.5k with his and I was shocked at how well it pulled, almost better than the 7.3 I currently tow with daily. My biggest concern is burning out the drivetrain with how often a tow a decent load.
Any and all thoughts and opinions are greatly appreciated.
