Would you recommend a 6.7?

Hey guys I normally post in the 6.0 section. But my dad is looking at moving on from his 6.0 as he travels a good deal and it's getting old and starting to have some problems typical 6.0. But he wants to stick with Ford. Would you guys recommend a 6.7. The type if driving would be mixed city and highway. Pulling anywhere from a couple four wheelers to a camper and maybe a skid loader every now and again. And I've heard of the 6.7 having the same issue as the 6.4 where it regens a lot which causes crappy fuel mileage. Just any info you might think he'd need in his truck shopping. Thanks.

The 6.7 and any other new diesel for that matter, will not have the best mpg. They make a lot of good aftermarket parts to help the 6.7 but I understand a lot of these will no longer be made due to federal regulations?

currently driving a 335i bmw, no more powerstoke

I love my 6.7L...despite what some are about to tell you, there are lots of very happy customers...and a handful of people who hate them...just like every other time. The regens do happen frequently if you're towing/hauling a lot...or if you're always stomping on the gas pedal. Normal driving it isn't too bad and it only happens for a short amount of time...talking a few minutes every day or two for me. My avg MPG for the last 6K miles is 16.4...lots of city driving. The power is wonderful and the transmission match up is great. Go drive one...you'll see!

The 2011-up super duty is a great truck, and the 6.7 is a great engine. Just make sure you have a basic understanding of the emissions technology and how it will affect, mpg's, longevity, durability, and long term maintenance costs beyond the warranty. After you've learned and weighed all of this, if you still want the truck, go for it!

My dad has an '11 and it is a horse. I love the truck. He uses it as a DD and to tow some things and it has done great. Fairly decent mileage for a stock truck with the emissions crap installed too

Had to park it with some real diesel muscle....

From what I've heard the 6.7 is a great motor paired to a great trans.

If he has a diesel now, he won't be satisfied with a 6.2

I only have 3000 miles on mine, but so far I love it. It's mainly a Work truck for my HVAC business. I drive all over the place, mixed highway and stop and go. I'm averaging 16 1/2, but just did a 500 mile trip and got 20.8. It sure is a cold natured truck. I would make sure you get a block heater.
