Really? The 17's are MORE powerful.

6.2l gas in the superduty 2016 and older
385 hp @ 5,750 rpm
405 lb-ft @ 4,500 rpm

Those are indeed impressive numbers as is this video, but as he says, it SUCKS gas.

I'd LOVE to see a drag race with 8k trailer between identical trucks, one with the 6.2 and the other with the 6.7 diesel. I'd be willing to wager the diesel would win a 0-60, but the clincher would be towing that load for several hundred miles. I'm pretty sure the diesel would win the fuel economy award there too.

Yeah, I had two of the 6.8l V-10's. "It could pass anything but a gas station". :-)

I currently have an 09 F150 with the 5.4L V8, and am waiting on my 17 F350 with the 6.7L. When I tow my enclosed car trailer with my car in it and a bed FULL of tools and parts across the USA from west coast to the east coast through lots of hills I average about 10mpg. I'll report back after my trip east this June!!!

The 6.2 is hardly a dog of an engine. I had a fleet of them, and they were great on power and reliability.

New addition:
2006 f-550 service body with a 20 foot stellar crane.
Arrest me red 2006 F-250 6.0 Even more loaded
Black 2000 F-250 4X4 PSD Lariat, loaded.
Green 2001 4x4 Excursion Limited with PSD, loaded
White 2004 F-250XL, it is loaded with just a LS. I can't find the other options.:P

Just how many superduty's does a guy need?

the 2017 F150 has a very 'car-like' ride...the superduty more like a very refined truck that you can drop 4k in the back of.

My 7.3's all drive like trucks(steering/ride)...and are loud...and pull great-until you do it with a 2017!

My 2017 is a rocket ship that drives like a truck and handles well on pavement as well as off-road...I'm getting 17.5 mpg and drive hard. The creature comforts blow away my 7.3's(note, that includes an excursion, f350, f550, and e550...I really like my 2017 so far...and I drive a ton 7500 miles some months!)

It's not even a contest.
6.7 would win in every count.

Twice the power, prices have gone up over 2x since 99. Reliability way down. Maintenance and repair a nightmare. $24,000 blown engines have been discussed commonly on the 6.7. If the old truck is working, I would not "upgrade".

The things that factored into 7.3''s when they were new do not apply now.
Diesel vs gas now is simply a want, you can average better mpg towing and empty with diesel but it is still more expensive to operate. The driving experience will be much more enjoyable with the diesel. Either platform will easily give you 200k miles
