2012 6.7 diesel review

I'm looking to trade in my 2004 F250 SD Crew Cab for a new 2012 F250 SD. I have heard that there are some issues with the new 6.7 diesel however and wanted to ask the forum for their reviews of the 2012 diesels. My 2004 has only had a few minor issues and I hope that I would get them same performance/reliability from the 2012 model. your comments are appreciated.

Run to the dealer. I had a 2004 and 2006 with the 6.0, and now a 2011 F350 crew cab dually with the 6.7. No comparison. The 2011 and 6.7 are miles ahead of the 04 in every way. Most notable would be engine performance is much better, MPG, more power, quieter, 6 speed transmission, overall technology, and comfort in general. Make the move before your truck's value becomes lower as more 6.7s hit the streets. You won't regret the decision once you get over the sticker shock. These babies are not cheap!

I have had very minor "problems" with my 2011. Basically the same egr issue I had with my 2004, only on the 2004 it would actually kill the engine while driving. The only thing I second guess was that my 2004 was paid for and theres something to be said about not having a truck payment. Just 6 more years...

Run, don't walk to the dealer. Like others have said, owners of 7.3s, 6.0s, and 6.4s are going to take it in the shorts when people realize just how much better the Ford engine is to the Navistar.

If you were a 7.3 owner, I'd make that message all Caps. Take advantage of the guys who "refuse to buy a new emissions truck." These new urea trucks (GM and Ford) are going to change people's opinions of the new diesels.
