The Ford 6.7Ls in the C&C trucks have had some problems. The photos below show what a good number of trucks in an oil field service company's fleet have experienced - cracked exhaust valves.

I assume you are asking about the ford 6.7 and not the dodge ?

After 8500 miles, 3000 hauling puling 23k GCW, I LOVE this 6.7, now I did have the FAMOUS 7.3, and the INFAMOUS 6.0 in Excursions, but I loved those too as I didn't move them out until 140+k miles...

This is a bad cellphone picture of my instantaneous mpg @ 23.6 mpg while running around town Saturday.... granted I reset it when I got on the tollway, but had been running at about 1600 rpms for a while when I took this (long enough to get my cellphone out and take a picture of the 24 mpg @ about 70 mph)

Note the multiple data points HIGHER than 23.6 in the DIS...

My response was for the Ford 6.7L in the C&C trucks. That's what the photos are from.

2011's had some lift pump issues that Ford has so far been unwilling to honor under warranty. Other than that, most have been OK. Don't believe the great mileage hype. Most of them are still only getting around 17-18 hand calculated MPG highway unloaded and 10 towing. Same as the GM's and Dodges similarly equipped.

Apologies, Mister Dodges, did not mean to make this a brand war
I'll drop out saying good luck on your choice.

I hadn't heard of any problems, and certainly nothing like the 6.0 Navstar engines.

for that power level I'd consider 17-18MPG great mileage.

Do a search in RV.NET for info on the ford 6.7L engine. Some user has complained about drop glow plugs and fuel quality issues that ford and or dealer have denied warranty on.

In the last dozen or so years, Ford has gone from the 7.3, to the 6.0, to the 6.4, to the 6.7. JMHO, I'd get a Dodge with the Cummins, or the GM with the Duramax/Allison.

Folks ordered an F350 Lariat new in Dec 2010. Mileage on the interstate no towing is around 17.5. My 2009 F350 does 15.5 on a good day. If I'd have had the coin, I'd have ordered a new one, Parents truck is very quite and pulls well. There are many subtle differences between our trucks. They've ordered a 2000 7.3 F250 SC, 2006 6.0 F350 SC and now this 2011 F350 CC. We've never had any troube with any of the trucks, not even our 6.0, but I wouldn't be excited to have another one.

I work in a fleet and the 6.7l cummins has far share of regen issue and the 6.6l durmax has problems in the first years like injectors and later model have glow plug issues nouthing beats the 7.3l or the old 5.9l I have a 7.3l with 250,000 and no issues I had 6.0l ford and great power but had every issue under sun. So the answer to me is find older truck I need at least a 450 because the wight of the trailer 40ft toy hauler

The early (2007 & 8 model years) ones did until Cummins and Dodge worked out the ECU programming, but the 2009 and up don't have any significant problems (nor do the early ones if they have the current ECU flashes). I've never had any problems at all with our 2011 6.7L Cummins. Remember, the 6.7L Cummins has been used in the Dodge trucks since January 1, 2007.

Ive had my 6.7L powerstroke since Feb of 11. (job 2, built 1/11). I have not had one single issue with the truck. The power this truck has stock is out of this world. I test drove the big 3 before my purchase. Didnt like the power or the ride of the dodge, and didnt like the interior of the chevy.

My fuel mileage has been outstanding for an 8000lbs truck. On the highway, as long as I keep my foot out of it, I get 20+, hand calculated.

Now the towing mileage for me is going to be different, because im not towing a big 5r. But im around 14-15mpg. My guess on weight for towing my trailer, with all the stuff that is brought is around 9000lbs. I have never weighed it though.

If you are interesting in looking deeper there are forums out there for the powestroke, cummins, and durmax motor. Check out the forums, and you can see what other guys are having problems with and what the guys like about them.
