I heard some MPG's from the tech's

I have been seeing these new trucks driving around for a long time, I work trackside at the R&E Center in Dearborn and the tech's are finally allowed to talk, they are seeing 24 ~ 26 highway and 19 ~ 20 city on the 6.7L and 19 ~ 20 highway 15 ~ 16 city on the 6.2. These are pre production and some production testers. I didn't have time to ask lots of questions and did not get a chance to ask towing numbers but they say there rocket ships and almost ZERO turbo lag.icon_ford:icon_ford:

good to hear . i live an hour or so away from the proving grounds. but i cant wait to see what these things get in real life with people driving them 120 miles a day to and from work. im sure if you drove it easy in the city youd see over 20mpg .

The diesel engine fuel mileage has to be calculated at a fairly low speed.

Driving one at around 130km/h nets about 16mpg

And I would bet those numbers are right off the dash, too.
