Default New F250 7.3 liter

I traded my 2012 F250 6.7 in for a 2021 F250 Lariat with the 7.3. I'm happy as can be with the truck. Got way more than I expected for the 12.

The more you drive it the more you’ll like it. Except mpg, mpg isn’t great.

I didn't get good mpg from my 12, so I actually think it's going to be a wash.

In this day and age with all of the electric crap and emissions crap they have put on Diesels unless you are towing a heavy trailer on a daily basis I don't see the point of Diesel. Most people don't need one and everyone I know that has a new emissions control error Diesel has lost any MPG advantage by getting hit with a $3,000-$5,000 bill to fix something with the emissions system.

gasoline is cheaper. Irony..finally fuel is selling for prices comparable to BTU content. The great Smokey Yunick advocated thet decades ago.

This was done at a shop that does a lot of deletes with an EZ Lynk programer. I tried numerous engine and transmission profiles. The best combination I found was 50 hp and factory settings(supposedly) on trans. I got in touch with EZ Lynk to discuss my issues and they wouldn't talk about it. That's what they said, "we can't talk about." I'm pretty sure I've owned my last diesel, after 4 of them, 6.9, 7.3, 6.0, and a 6.7. I like the size of an F250 so I got the 7.3 gas engine.

As they have for past 10-15 years. There will always be a way around it. Maybe the "feds" should start with emissions testing, There are 15 states that don't do it at all and most other states only require it in urban areas. I'm sure it will be all fixed soon though

bingo......try and convince yourself all day long the equivalence or rationality of cost savings of a gas motor the same way old guys do w Velcro shoes. Don’t need a diesel but I want it.

Man, don't tie the ass drag to the Carolinas. Carolina bow flare is OK, but not the stupid ass drag. Lol

Getting back to the original topic. I'm still seeing very few 7.3 equipped SuperDutys on dealer lots. It could be that they're selling as fast as they come in due to high demand. Or they're going into commercial use--like governmental sales or trucks with specialty bodies like utility beds with cranes or fuel tanks. The engine's also engineered for use in heavy vehicles, like mid size trucks and motor homes.

But as far as I can tell, there are nothing but rave reports on the new generation engine. Shortly, they'll be building a 6.8 version Godzilla engine for 2022 F150's and Mustang GT's. That's just what Ford needs--a sixth available engine for 1/2 tons.

My 7.3L was only the second one my dealer sold. Since then they’ve gotten about 10 on the lot, they’re selling within 7 days of hitting the lot. They have 6.7’s in all trims and a few 6.2 work trucks that have been sitting there since the beginning of October.
