old 6.4 owners with a 6.7,need your opinion

well I currently have the 6.4 (2010) and am not to happy with it. had it tuned and deleted then after about 35 kms started loosing antifreeze. I have it back to stock now and I hate it. my dealer called me up and was talking about a 2012 lariat that I may consider.

my truck is a dd that the wife mostly uses. I live in a small town but lots of highway and the summer months pulling a car hauler with my drag car on it. the issue is the damn regen. I would love to leave the 6.7 stock and not loose sleep over every rattle. is the regen really better than the 6.4,or less hard on the motor.? like I said earlier im in a small town and the wife refuses to hit the highway in winter or drive circles around town for an hour. she will leave it for me after work! I do plan on a 5th wheel camper soon. all I plan on is a slight lift and tires. thanx in advance

dump the 6.4 and jump on the 6.7 I have had two of each, and by far the 6.7 is better in all aspects.

I agree!!!! Had a 6.4 and moved to the 6.7. Everything bad about the 6.4 was corrected in the 6.7. Of course this is just my opinion. I am 69, this will be the last truck I owe. I normally traded every 18 months, but love this 6.7.

Agreed. Loved my '08, but the 6.7 is a beast!!

You'll love it too.

right now they dropped the price from sticker of 72k to 54k but only offering 22k for my 2010 with 68 kms so i'm working them a bit more!! ford has rebate on 2012 of 10k so it looks like they are just trying to make it look sweet by offering a low trade.

Love my 6.7. It is better than my 6.4 in my opinion. And the tranny makes a huge difference.

I'd go for the 6.7L anyday...my spartan tuned 6.4L was still a fuel sucking slug. My 6.7L stock is more truck than my 6.4L ever hoped to be. Maybe my 6.4L wasn't as good as it should have been but as I said, no comparison.
