Trade the 2013 6.2??

I purchased a new 2013 6.2 F350 King Ranch 4x4 less than 6 months ago and have been so disappointed in the truck, I am seriously considering trading it for a 2014 6.7. I came from an 08 6.4 F250 King Ranch to the gasser and now wish I would have kept it. I am not sure what kind of deal I could get but fortunately I don't owe a large amount on the truck because I got an excellent trade in price for the 08. Really wish I would have done more research on the 6.2.
Any feedback will be appreciated.

How much weight do you tow with it?
This would help others who think a 6.2L may or may not work for their requirements.

The Ohio meet videos shows this engine is impressive but it sounds like the 4.30 gears and high RPMs are the key to the 6.2L.

The diesel is simply a joy to drive when towing so difficult to argue about that.

My opinion is that you should trade it in for the 6.7. It doesn't even have to be a 2014, the 2013's are great!(I just bought a 2013 F350 XLT CC SRW 6.7). I only have about 300 miles on my truck right now, but I am averaging 17 in the city! Plus what was said above, the amount and ease this truck can tow is amazing.

Not sure what your looking for, but these are big heavy trucks and there's a reason that most Super Duty's sitting on the dealer's lots are diesels. It sounds like you simply miss the easy power that comes from a diesel.

If you liked your 6.4 you'll love the 6.7.

Good luck...

2 truths that hold for a great many people.

1. After you get used to a super duty, you can't go back to a F150 and remain satisfied.
2. After you get used to a diesel, there's just something not right if you go back to a gasser.

Now I know, lots of people do go back with no issues, but most of us here would have a very difficult time going to a gas truck or a 1/2 ton. It's totally understandable.

Pretty much dead on. I had like 5 diesels in a row and then bought a 1/2 ton gasser because I thought I didn't need a puller and wanted to try a gasser. I did a lot to my gasser and it was fun to drive, but 5 four wheelers later, we needed a diesel again.

I guess my point is that if you are missing pulling power (low end grunt), then sure, go back to a diesel. If it's the sound or quickness, through an exhaust system and supercharger on it and you are money ahead. Aside of the engine, the trucks are the same. You need to decide what you are disappointed about and address that in my opinion.

I am disappointed in the power of the 6.2 and the transmission shift pattern.
Transmission shifts to 5th and 6th way to soon and wants to stay there unless you really get on the gas. It just doesn't seem to want to go especially when accelerating to merge into traffic. I remember my 6.4 being so much more responsive.
I probably never should have owned the diesel. Had I not, I wouldn't know what I am missing.
Plan to go to the Dealership this Saturday and begin talking about a trade.

We just traded a 2012 Ford Focus in on a 2014 Ford Escape. Never had any trouble with the Focus in our 17,000 miles, it just wasn't for us. If you can afford a new truck, you should trade it in. The dealer will be happy to see you.

Here in Colorado I haven't seen any loaded trucks (Lariat, KR or Platinum) with the 6.2L. They all come with the 6.7L unless you get an XL. When I traded my 7.3L for my 6.7L a year ago I considered going back to gas but the diesel is definitely the way to go especially since I hear the 6.2L only gets about 12 mpg. When you trade it in 10 years from now you will also get much more for it regardless of mileage.

Same issues

Just traded my 2013 6.2L gas for a 2014 6.7L. Went from a 2wd Lariat with 3.73 gears to a 2wd Lariat with 6.7L and 3.31 gears. Pulling a 8500lb travel trailer..the 6.2 was solid...just not up to par for economy. Shifts a bit too much when pulling the trailer. Ordered it new....still waiting for it to arrive...cannot wait!

My new 2014 F350 4x4 6.7 Lariat Ultimate should arrive within the next 5 weeks. I am glad to hear there are others who were so unhappy they were willing to trade a practically new truck. I take full responsibility for my mistake in trading for the gasser, but it will definitely be the last time.
