(The 6.2 is a fine engine, but so is the 6.7.)
Diesel option is also +/- $8K up-charge.....not exactly a free lunch with the diesel.....

What percentage people buy a new truck and keep it for 400k miles?

most of the guys who buy the diesels don't keep them long enough to even get to those high repair cost it is the guy who buys it used that ends up with the bill. around this area they are selling more gas trucks. this is not a put down just stating the data from this area.

Due to a RAV replacement (Bad engine after spending 61 days out of the first 90 in the shop) - I just upgraded from a 2017 F150 SC 3.5L EB - To a 2017 F250 SCSB 6.2L and I'm happy with the 6.2L - It's no twin turbo V6 but it does plenty for that heavy truck. I had a 2005 F250 PSD 6.0L ten years ago, and I think I prefer this gasser over that.

Letís just say I strongly disagree with the longevity 6.7 versus 6.2 argument.

Gas Vs Diesel

This thread has been done before.


Both have their place. Both engines have done well. No one want to own a truck 400k miles. I think I will sell my around 150-200k


GAS trucks do better for short trips. Turbo diesel do better for long heavy towing trips over Mountains.


I will say that non-turbo engine losses power at altitude where a Turbo Diesel keeps about the same amount of power. I have felt a gas truck loss power due to altitude and it sucks. I also hate 4500 rpm to pull a load.


People simple try to justify their purchases. I drive both the 6.7 and the 6.2 and 6.8. For a Daily I would take the 6.2, for a work horse I would take the 6.7.


I have 70k on the 6.7. ZERO engine issues. Its been a really good truck. My 6.8 has 120k on it and doing great. So I think the notion of a gas truck not lasting is BULL (*#(

You're right. The 6.2 will last much longer than most people are willing to admit.

The rest of the truck will fall apart anyway. There might be some 400K diesels around but take a look at the rest of the truck.

Good thought, but that's the first thing I checked. It was a BIG difference. Glad I realized about the G, or I'd pass on the gasser. Now, it may be my choice.
