Might move from 08 6.4L to 11 6.7L, opinions...

Guys I have a stock 6.4L F250 CC, and made the mistake of test driving a new 6.7L and all I can say is WOW. My truck is stock and I will more than likely leave the 6.7L stock at least power train.

Knock on wood my 6.4L has been trouble free for 26k miles so just not sure it's worth taking a chance. That new power train was impressive though, at least to me.

My only concern is it's a brand new engine should I be that concerned?

Thanks

I'm actually looking at getting a 6.7 to replace my 2005 6.0 and I've heard nothing but good things about it.

I say roll with it!!

Let me know how you like the 6.7!

There is a bunch of guys on here that did that, i'm sure they will chime in, I have driven both a lot. Would never think of buying a 6.4 over a 6.7

Ditch the 6.4L, at some point in time you will get a bad load of fuel and then CABOOM!!!

I drove an 011 and sold my 6.0L that only had 22000 miles and honestly was flawless

...uhm...I have a 6.7 that has almost 30,000 miles. The power seems to be increasing, the mileage seems to be going up. I am really disappointed. Diesels are supposed to be noisy, smelly, and, frankly this truck does not smell, it isn't noisy. I got 23+ mpg this morning driving into town...this really sucks. These trucks are supposed to rattle, be obtrusive, and tell everybody thats its a work truck. Women tell me how great my truck looks...I am concerned. Men ask if its a diesel, should I have to tell them? Diesels are supposed to announce themselves. On the good side, it does yank around my 15k 5'er real good.

Thanks for all the replies and I might be joining the 6.7L club sometime in the near future.

And I might get one of them brown ones but right now I'm leaning towards the Platinum White.

My wife won't like the fact that it's even quieter than the 6.4L She likes the sound of the diesel engine.
