which one 6.4 or 6.7

Got a question for everyone. I am thinking about trading my 7.3 for a new truck but i cant decide should i get a 6.4 or the 6.7 mileage is important but not a deal breaker. I do construction so i do travel all over the country so i will be doin a little bit of towing a 41 foot toy hauler and that is just to and from different jobs other then that i wont be towing much. Any suggestions????? I dont want a dually, i will be getting a f350 4 door though.

If money isn't an option then that's a no brainer to me. I have a 6.4 and love it, I personally think it looks better than the 6.7's. That big ole goofy grille on the 6.7 hasn't grown on me yet if it ever will.

I think I would go for the new 6.7. 6.4s just don't
impress me. MPG sucks big time pulling a RV.

The 6.7 has better mileage out the gate then the 6.4 but the 6.4 is capable of more with tunes from what reports users are saying. Both have issues with the emissions equipment and the 6.4 doesn't have as much to mod to get rid of it. There were some issues with the radiator early on in the life of the 6.4, but it seems to have worked itself out as you don't hear about it cropping up anymore. The 6.4's can be had for less then the 6.7 and allot still have warranties on them.

Lastly, the 6.4 actually looks like a nice rugged truck whereas the 6.7 looks like a 6.4 was out whoring with a Chevy and this is it's offspring.
