2016 6.7 vs 2017 6.2

Passed 10k on my 2017 F250 6.2 with 3.73 rear end and have to to say I am really impressed with it so far! 75% of those miles were with my 9.5' western MVP3 attached which this truck pushes extremely well with.
Yesterday I was driving a 2016 F250 CCSB 4x4 with the 6.7 and I have to say it felt like a dog compared to my 2017 6.2. Especially on the highway and taking off from a stop the 6.2 just moves once it gets into the powerband the 16 just felt sluggish. Perhaps it was just the new transmission but I was really surprised by how much better the new felt compared to the old.

Nothing to go berserk over. His anecdotal evidence is what it is. That's his impression of what he senses...

On the empirical side, though (2018 statistics):
6.2 gasser: Horsepower: 385 @ 5750, Torque: 430 @ 38006.7 diesel: Horsepower: 450 @ 2800 Torque: 935 @ 1800
So, torque being force causing rotation, looks like the diesel edges out the gasser. Horsepower is the mathematical manipulation of torque (HP=Tq x RPM/5252) and is a measure of how fast work can be done. So, the diesel can do a heavier lift and faster.

On the diesel, try pressing on the tall skinny pedal. It should work out okay that way.

Great Scott !

I am thinking this will go nuclear.
As soon as the convulsions pass, guys will be pounding on their keyboards !!
FTE will break the internet, servers will be overheating, and no moderator will be able to control it.

I can't wait !!!!

I'm still shopping for the truck I want and haven't settled on which powertrain I'm going with, but in the months I've been perusing FTE I have seen a ton of 6.2 owners justifying their purchase by ******* on the 6.7 but not much in the other direction. They are both extremely capable powertrains, I don't know why it has to be a comparison where one is "bad", they both have positives and negatives (which makes the choice extremely challenging for me).

Both engines are very good.
The only reason I went gasser, is i did not need the oil burner, and did not want to pay $9000.00 for an option I did not need.

Regarding this thread, I think the spirited debate is great fun.

I drove my buddy’s 6.2 this weekend. It’s a sweet rig - plenty of power and torque <for him>.

He drove my 6.7 and said he prefers the gasser.

Also, my friend is a liar.

lol yes they are, my background is in older 90s and 00s diesels and while my 17 will blow their socks off empty im sure with a trailer the 6.7 will blow it away.
Either way my buddies ecoboost f150 will run circles around these 3/4 tons empty all day.

They say turbos don't have lag anymore but naturally aspirated engines sure seem more responsive to me. I think that's probably all the OP was noticing. IDK.

Either choice is good- my background is in older diesels the only reason I ended up with the 6.2 instead of the 6.7 was because my dealer only had base model XL diesels and I liked the options mine had. To be quite honest I dont really miss the diesel because most of my use for this truck is to push my 9.5 foot V-blade.

I know on paper Diesel wins all day everyday but it just didn't feel like it had twice the torque of the gas motor. Perhaps it was just the particular truck I was driving.
