The 7.3L gas engine will not have the torque of the 6.7L diesel. Depending upon your application, $9000 savings in initial purchase price, plus less expensive fuel price per gallon, plus less expensive maintenance costs might make sense for some people who don't plan to tow heavy anyway and are not putting on too many miles.
The 7.3L gas engine will be available in the F250, F350, F450, F550, F650, and F750.
