any one have one??? i need to get another truck or an SUV and have always liked these. but the v10's are about the only ones priced right... id never own a 6.0 psd and the 7.3's people want to bend you over and give it to you raw

just curious how bad they really are on gas

I miss my old F-250 that had the 6.8, and funny enough it got the same mileage as the 2 wheel drive F-150 I traded it in on...


I averaged about 16-17 on the highway and about 13-14 in town if I kept my foot out of it

We have one as a company vehicle and used it to haul an enclosed trailer to the Shelby meet in Tulsa back in June and it got around 10mpg.

10mpg's highway pulling the trailer?

what gears are in it?? if it has 3.55's or worse I could see


but if it has 3.73's or 4.10's it should've done better



how was the power???

Yeah I had a '03 f-250 with 8" lift on 37's and I got 10mpg city or hwy, it did sound badass though with an exhaust


Edit, Mine had 3.73's and it got about 8-9 with a loaded trailer

I had 33" tires and 3.73 gears on mine with a 5 speed... I miss it, it had so much more room than the F-150 (the F-150 is way faster though :laughing25 )

Now you can get a "2011" Excursion with the 6.7
