Advice on buying 2011 vs 2013
So now that the 6.7s have been out a few years and seemingly are a huge step up in reliability vs 6.4, I am looking into buying one for a DD. It seems like the 6.7s are holding up nicely and certainly plenty strong even in stock form. I would like to get people's opinion on buying a low mileage used 11 or new 13.
I personally am NOT a fan of buying a new truck (outside of an absolute steal) due to the fact I typically trade trucks in every 2-3 years and hate how much value you lose rolling off the lot. Of course it's nice to know exactly how it's been treated, but assuming no major abuse, a used 6.7 with low miles should not scare anyone away.
The 2 trucks I am looking at are:
1) 2011 F-350 CCSB 4x4 lariat fully loaded with 17k on the odometer
2) 2013 F-250 CCSB 4x4 XLT FX4 new (bottom line fx4 options)
With current rebates the dealer is offering to make room for the 14s, both trucks are essentially equally priced (probably room in the 11s $). I drive 30-40,000+ miles annually with a lot of time spent on mid to long road trips. With that said, I would LOVE to have the lariat with all creature comforts plus some.
So after that long winded non-sense, what is everyone's perspective on the 2011 vs 2013s? I know that ony very minor changes have been made but is there anything I should look out for in the 2011 being that it was first year out for the drivetrain? Any other problems I should look out for?
Look forward to everyone's responses.
