Thumbs up Towing with the 6.7

Happy Monday everybody! Ok, so in my last thread I said I'd get back to you all about how the new 6.7 tows and here's the verdict. Love it! Love it! Love it! We took the hauler, the kids, the dogs and the toys up to Flagstaff this weekend for some fun in the cool pines. We had about 600lbs in the cab, about 1000lbs in the bed and the toyhauler which goes for about 16,500lbs loaded. If your not familiar with the drive from Phoenix to Flagstaff, its like this, going from 1000' elevation up to about 7500'. A couple of nice, long climbs about 6% grades and its hot as hell here. The truck flat out kicks ass! Literally went as fast as I wanted to up the hills and only put it to the floor once. Up one hill I passed an f450 with the 6.4 and a trailer about the same size as mine. Going down hill was just as nice, the engine slowed me down to 50mph with just one quick tap of the brake. I'm not a big truck or towing expert, but I gotta believe that there is NO other truck out there that is going to tow like this thing. My old 6.4 was nice, but this thing truly takes it to another level. If you know an engineer at Ford, shake that man's hand! Oh yeah, round trip mpg's = 10.7. Not great, but I am still breakin the truck in and that's a hell of a lot better than I ever got with the 6.4. So, total truck grade imo, A freakin +! Later.

Awesome! Fuel mileage is meh, but honestly if it tows that well and is that safe descending a hill, can you complain? Plus you had a lot of weight on there. Glad you like it.

One word: airbags. Or is that 2 words? Well, whatever, they will do the trick in taking care of the sag and your leafs and shocks will thank you for it. Also, it stabilizes the ride a ton. Had them on my '08 and it was the first thing I did to my '12.

I agree with all of the above. Last time I pulled our 32' travel trailer it was with a V10 now with my new power stroke it was a huge difference. Yes I also noticed a little sag in the rear which I will fix with air bags. I had them on the excursion and it was definitely needed. I am planning ahead and choosing the air bags that are set up for a fifth wheel just in case. There are different mounts for each set up so if one is planning on towing a fifth wheel, you will be saving money by getting them the first time instead of switching them out.

Default I love mine...

I love how my work truck tows and carries, you can see how I go out on the road most times and I get decent fuel mileage. usually getting 13-14 mpg loaded like this and in the other pic where I drive with nothing in tow or haul I get 16-19 mpg depending on the mountains. Plenty of power, most comfortable truck I've ever driven. I honestly can't say enough good about this truck. I also keep DEF with me in case I run low between service appts.
