The "new" Ford 6.7l diesel is found in 2011-current Ford diesel trucks. The "new" engine has been the most reliable since the 7.3l, which was last manufactured in mid 2003. I have 61K on my 2012 6.7l F350 crew cab and it has never been to a Ford dealer for anything other than routine maintenance. I tow a 2014 32BHDS and a 14K construction trailer with a farm tractor. Plenty of power and very quiet and clean. No black diesel smoke at all. The only negative I've found is the fuel tank is 26 gal instead of 35. I have always been a Dodge and Chevy guy. This is my first Ford. I love this truck!

My 6.0 is a joy to drive. I did have the oil cooler problem that is common but it was all covered by the extended warranty, Just turned 81k and a pulling machine on the outside and comfortable ride on the inside.

The last couple of years of the 6.0 were fairly good as they had the bugs worked out. The 6.4 was only used for a short time for a good reason. The 6.7 seems to be the one to have if you want a newer truck.

When the buying is all over you might find yourself saying "I could'a had a Ram".

Thanks for all the info, it's helping with my research. I spoke to guy today with a 2007 he had since new. No engine problems...lots of minor problems...biggest problem he mentioned was gas tank is plastic, and somehow something got clogged and the tank collapsed in on itself. It was still under warranty, and they replaced filter while the tank was out. That was new to me. I appreciate all the feedback and hope you keep adding it here for me. Thanks!

I have a 2011 Ford with the new 6.7L Powerstroke. I only have 28k miles on it so far and nothing but good things to report. It's a pulling machine and like stated before, very quiet and clean. I love my truck and wouldn't trade it for anything else!

I drive a 2006 6.0 and love it. There are a lot of good replies here. The most important thing to monitor is the engine coolant temp vs. oil coolant temp difference, delta in temps. Ford specs 15 degree difference. If you test drive one, I highly suggest picking up a scangauge 2 and monitor these temps. Truck needs to be warmed up, 60mph driving on flat ground to get your deltas. If temp difference is greater than 15 degrees the oil cooler is clogged and on its way out. Left as is will lead to very bad, bad things as described above. My oil cooler was on its way out, then upgraded it to a Bulletproof Diesel remote oil and egr cooler and will never have to worry about this again. Go to powerstroke.org, very informative about the 6.0.

I had to look up scangauge, could be a good purchase to save me from headaches down the road.

I went to a ford dealer today. His advice was for me to stay away from the 6.0 trucks. Then of course he tried selling me a new F-150

Must not have had one for sale. Wonder what they would say had one been on the lot?

Maybe take a look at Duramax and CTDs. I really like driving my Duramax, many like the Ram CTD -- as mentioned if the rear seat would have better accommodated 3 car seats I would have given it a serious look too.

They had one on the lot, when I asked about the 6.0 thing he said that the only way they took it in was because it had about 6000 work done to remedy all the issues. It was a 2004. It was out of my price range.

I'm looking at all the possibilitys I can. I've read some good info regarding Duramax and Cummins.

Every single ford out there couldn't possibly be a lemon? I had a 2002 ranger new. During the first month it stalled on a logging road leaving us waiting for a tow. With weekend trip ruined, truck towed to dealer, ended up being gas cut off switch engaged after hitting a Small pothole. The switch, or button, just had to be pushed in so the truck could be started. But no one figured it out till it was in the shop. Then I was advised the module was so cheap and the replacements were worse so I should just insert a paper clip to prevent the switch from activating. I forgot about that till now.
