Please tell me I made a good decision

After 10 years of fighting a very first run of the '03 6.0 I ordered a new truck yesterday. I have coming a 2013 F250 6.7 Platinum Edition. God I hope it is a serious step in the right direction. Somebody please tell me so!

2 yrs with mine and I have never been more thrilled with a truck. Fuel economy is not what I was hoping though.

I just bought a 2011 F350 yesterday and so far it is amazing!

I came from a 2006 Dodge which had a great motor, but the chassis was junk. I love having a truck that drives without trying to kill me.

Thumbs up

I have had my 2012 F-350 6.7 for two months now and am very happy.............well, mostly. The only thing I was dissapointed in (and my wife thinks I'm nuts) is they quieted the engine down too much . If you like the way your 6.0 sounds, and I love the sound of the 6.0, then you may be a little dissapointed in the quietness of the 6.7. It is one quiet "Beast" of an engine.

I have to agree with you. A deisel is supposed to sound like a diesel. I guess its just like when I hear a muffled down Harley. Just not right
