Latest 6.7L reliability

What is the track record for the 2017 6.7's?

I have a 2012 F-450 and seems every trip I take, it ends up in the local Ford dealer to correct a Check Engine condition. So far 3 sensors have been replaced, away from home, triggering the Check Engine light. Today it happened once again. The local dealer where I'm at just called and it is an issue with the fuel pump. We're now in South Dakota until Wednesday, assuming they get what they need and fix it on Tuesday a they say. Thank goodness for the ESP .... it's taken care of over $ 7,000 worth of failures this year.

The truck itself is fine. In fact great. The crap they hang on the motor is junk.

We had been planning on a new truck soon anyway. Ford is on the list even though it is aluminum now but I am having 2nd thoughts now. My 7.3, 6.0 and 6.4's were all rock solid. This 6.7 has been nothing but trouble lately.

Tomorrow we're going to look at the Dodge Ram. After 10 years as a happy owner of Ford Super Duty trucks, I think I'm gonna give up.

Drove the new 6.7L up north to the cabin this weekend for the first since I picked her up. Not a wink of trouble. Then again, I've been lucky - not wink of (serious) problems out of any of the 12 new Ford vehicles that I've purchased in the past 11 years.

You former owners of 6.4s are very lucky--I have had 2 of them and both ended up with a blown piston in one of the regen cylinders.
So, now in a '17 and will see how it does--but I do have the ESP for 150k miles. Sad, get a new truck and have to buy insurance against it self-destructing....

2017 F450 17,000 miles. 100% of those miles at max weight.

Had a leak near a sensor on the differential. Replaced the sensor.

No other problems.

Phillippeterson,
Talkeetna, eh? Was up there last summer--3 of us made the mistake of driving into 'downtown' with long rigs, won't do that ever again.
How long you been up there?

well went and looked at the Dodge Ram ....... not impressed.

I sure hope Ford figures out what is going on with these sensors. I'll be sticking with Ford. Gonna order in the next month or two. Hoping to be ordering an '18.

I also drove a '17 Ram 3500 dually before settling on the KR--there is too much Ford in me to adjust to it, did not seem comfortable. Had noticeable turbo lag. Back seat (wife says this makes/breaks it for her, as she rides back there when on a foursome trip) is way too small in the crew cab. Had the Longhorn interior and the buckles on the front seat back storage--would be impossible to reach behind the other side seat and grab the atlas on long trips (thats being kind of picky...) Couldn't consider the Mega Cab as I need the long bed.
Wish I could have found a KR or a Plat in the Ruby Red, just not too many left in early Sept....

what I didn't like on the Ram was the outside mirrors. I depend on my outside mirrors when backing up (I'm used to backing up fire trucks) and I couldn't see my rear tires. Second I don't like not being able to see the front fenders from the driver seat; they slope off too much. Lastly, it has a greater turning radius than the Ford F-450. It all may sound petty, but I just didn't like it.

Also like wingnut60 said, I have too much Ford blue blood in me and I want to extra tow ratings that come with the F-450.

My only problem with Fords, is on the last 2 450s I owned, I spent enough on new engines to mostly pay for the '17. Surely hope that is all in the past. I am going to tediously document all the fuel filter/oil filter/fuel-water separator/DEF additions thinking if something does go wrong, Ford can't say I did not take care of it correctly.

I'm at the age that I ain't crawling under my truck anymore. So except for DEF, I take it to Ford for service. Maybe it costs me a little more, but they have record of everything done. While this plan won't work for everyone, it works for me.

We have 4 x Super Duty 6.7's. 1x 2011, 2 x 2013's and 1 x 2017.

2011 has done 1 x turbo, 1 #8 injector, 2 x exhaust sensors, a few injector clamps and cracked valves. CAC errors we can't work out. All before 50,000 miles.

1 of the 2013's has done #6 injector.

My 2017 has only done 600 miles

Seems they are getting better.

I do the same. Take my truck to Ford service. Have a record and I keep all copies of my records.
Best of luck with your search for your new Truck.
