I like the look of the new fords, both inside and out. I think they look way nicer now than in previous years.

ive never owned a 7.3 but what i can tell and what i have heard is the 6.7 supposed to be just as reliable as the 7.3. the power the 6.7 has is unbelievable and when im towing it feels like nothing is there at all. the cummings 6.7 and ford 6.7 is different i believe

I guess it's a new style of F150's, or maybe it's just diesel, but is sure looks different than the other/older ones. Looks great though. Don't get it too dirty!

Truck looks superb MPG sounds pretty decent.

How much and how often for the Urea refills?

What happens if you run out?

the 6.7 Cummins and 6.7 Ford diesel are completely different motors..

the 6.7 Cummins started being installed in trucks 2007.5 and was already meeting 2010 standards..

Thats one of the reasons the 6.4 was taken out of production because it didnt meet 2010 emission standards.

Btw, the 6.7 cummins doesnt have any urea injection like the 6.7 Ford.

Oh yeah, please google it because Ford doesnt own any percentage of Cummins.


But about the new truck, does it have actual hubs on the front end or am I seeing things?
