- 2020 F250 Tremor 6.7l
I love my 2020 6.7L. I pull a 8500lb bumper pull, and hope to go to 44' gooseneck someday. If you anticipate pulling bigger stuff I would definitely go with the diesel.I placed an order for our Tremor Lariat 7.3L back in June, no VIN yet so I can still change my mind and switch to the PowerStroke...
From reading the forums here, I can see the engine debate has been beaten to death but I figured I'd take a look from my specific use cases and ask if I missed anything obvious.
Ranking the use cases in order of 'how often'
Use Case "Better" engine choice Short in-town trips to store and barn with hay and horse feed (Partial Daily Driver for Wife) 7.3L Gas Towing an 8k bumper-pull 2 horse trailer Either one works, Advantage 6.7 Diesel Being flat-towed behind a diesel pusher RV occasionally 7.3L Gas (lighter by maybe 800lbs) Hunting trips, off-road use 7.3L Gas Future possibility... 15k goose neck horse trailer 6.7 Diesel
Appreciate any input or opinions.
I think a test drive would probably solve this one for me but no dealers around me seem to have any 7.3L in stock. Neighbor has a 6.7 so I get that experience.
If anybody in the Seattle area with a 7.3L Tremor and wants to trade a ride / drive I can offer up a BMW M2 6-sp manual experience
and yes, I can see that what I really need is both
