New Tow Vehicle - 2012 F250 6.7 CC Lariat

Picked it up last night, Tuxedo Black with silver lower trim, loaded lariat ultimate. Can't wait to get our TT behind this thing, it's a beast compared to the Sequoia. Also can't wait to finally be able to bring some extras with us in the bed. First diesel for me but my brother is a fleet manager and laughed every time we pulled last year with the Sequoia.

You are going to love that truck...even more so than you do now. It's very addictive. Get out and get those 500 miles on it before towing, then hook up and enjoy. It's a pleasure to drive!

Yep this was my first diesel as well.And hooked in front of a big fiver or even a big TT,at the risk of repeating everyone else,"it pulls like it ain't even back there". But I like the mpg more than anything else.My gasser was doing 7-9 mpg on a good day,going down hill,with a strong tail wind,and my DW pushing,(naw forget that!)But my 6.7 (Cummins) got 13-13.5 mpg on our last trip to WDW. It will make you a believer!

The main reason I went with the diesel was the gas mileage in tow. As promised, here it is! I smile every time the engine starts, when I hit it at a stop sign or traffic light. The turbo whistle is addicting! Drove by the TT today, still covered up waiting.
