    Looking to purchase a new 2011 F-350 , cant decide on gas/diesel. The 6.2 is supposed to be putting out good power for a gas engine. I have 2 salters in trucks already so this truck wont have a salter in it, but im putting a mvp pro on it or a wide-out. Anyone have a 011 with the 6.2 in it? Looking for personal reviews on all around performance. The diesel is nice, took one for a test drive but not really gonna work this truck to death so i can't see spending all the extra money. Any feedback on the 6.2 would be helpful. Thanks

    I took one out last week and it seemed ok, the pedal felt like you really had to push it to get it to go. I would buy one then go look for a chip.

    Or, just get the diesel and know you have all the power you'll ever need right out of the box.

    This is true. I love the 6.4 in my 550. Im leaning towards diesel and just wanted to hear some 6.2 reviews before i jumped right into it but the more i think about it your right, and anyways whats another $6,000 if i'm already spending $50,000. lol I'm gonna take the diesel out one more time, and i might take the 6.2 out after just to feel the difference. I'll keep everyone posted.

    Im pretty much set on the diesel, i took the 6.2 for a ride after lunch today and have mixed feelings about it. It was the 1st time i test drove one with the 6.2 and although its a huge upgrade from the 5.4, it's definately not even comparible to the 6.8 V-10 which was a huge mistake to not be optional anymore in the 250 or 350 trim. Its got a ton of power for a v-8 but i realized after i drove it, its not for me. I can't see spending all that money on a brand new truck and go to move my skid or something and be beating the hell outta a truck thats got only a few thousand miles on it.

    The new 6.7 is a lot quicker and more fuel efficient then the 6.4 if you love your 6.4 you will have an affair with the 6.7 in a heart beat. I had the 6.4 in my other truck and now that i have a 6.7 you could not force me back to a 6.4

    Everyone says go diesel, but I just bought on 011 f250 3 days ago.
    It has the 6.2, and I've pulled my trailer already.
    It seems to have plenty of pull, but of course, it is paired with a new transmission too.

    I was told the 6.2 is suppose to have more torque, to compete against the diesel. We'll see.

    good luck.

    I would don't know where I stand on this yet. The 6.7L is really, really complicated, but really, really, nice. I mean 400 HP and 800 lb. ft. :dizzy: While the 6.2 isn't bad either, I think for the first time in a long time I would want a diesel engine, and I'm a die hard V10 guy, I just hope it is reliable. That's why I would wait a couple year or so and see how it does.

    As for the plow, go with the WideOut, no question.
