2016 6.7L Ford powerstroke

Any of you all have one?

I've decided I need to upgrade my towing capabilities and a dealer not too far away has a 2016 F350 dually with 13,500 miles on it. Crew cab and long bed, 4x4.

Being a Chevy man for the last 18 years I don't know what Ford has going on.

Thanks for any info.

As I understand the F word, they improved the turbo and exhaust braking greatly on the 16s. They still use the CP4 injection pumps though.... might want to do some research on the Ford forums...

I have an '06 E-450 with the 6.0L, and I've heard the 6.7L is a vast improvement. The 6.0L is not a good engine without some significant modifications (EGR delete for one). Access to the engine in a van is very bad too.

As Shorthorn mentioned, might want to look around on FTE forums to see what you're getting into.

I have the same drive train and engine in my 2015. Just rolled over 1 year ownership and 25,000 kms. Tows like a champ, the dry mileage is better and cost to operate is LESS than my F 150 Ecoboost.

DO IT! haha...seriously though, I found a '15 Dually CC with 14k on the clock a couple months ago. Pulled the trigger and I am so glad I did. I had an Excursion (gas V10) which I loved, but this thing pulls like crazy. Check out Ford Truck Enthusiast forum, I am over there too. Lots of good info. I love the truck, very glad I waited to get a 6.7L. Ford also improved the turbo for the MY 2015 and up.

I went ahead and filled out their online form for my trade value just to get a ballpark estimate, but I'm pretty sure I won't be able to swing this deal.

When I ran my truck up on kelly blue book, well it's sure depreciated a lot for only having 9,000 miles. May have to keep it another year.

I'll just have to baby that windjammer down to Florida. It pulls fine the short time I've pulled it, and my sunset trail pulls great behind the half ton.
Windjammer weighs 1400 pounds more than the sunset trail. All other things should be equal since we always take the same stuff with us.

Just looking for an extra margin of safety.

you never know, you might catch them at a good time and they might be wanting to deal. see what happens.
and yeah, I ditto what Unforgiven said about the exhaust brake. its great! hit the button, tap the brake at the top of the hill, and she will hold the speed all the way down.

I have heard the 6.7 is a beast. Not sure about asking a Ford forum. Most folks wont bad mouth their truck until they get another brand. I would stay here and listen.

I have a 2016 F350 Dually. The 6.7 is unbelievable. My previous truck was a 2014 Chevy Duramax. The Duramax was for sure no slouch, but the Ford has even more power. Go to the dealer and work them. The best deals for sure won't be online. They want to sell trucks, but you need to be face to face.
